Our Courses

We offer general English courses from novice to advanced levels to school students, college students, professionals, job seekers, and homemakers alike. Additionally, we offer specialized courses to prepare students for international exams like the IELTS and TOEFL exams, to build up their skills to score higher on these exams, or develop their oral communication skills. We also assist interested students to organize a language course abroad with our partner, InLingua Cheltenham in England.

At Noor Majan all our teachers are certified English instructors; some of them even native English speakers, while others hail from Azerbaijan or Oman. We use The Headway Plus series (adapted to the Gulf region) for our general English courses, the Action Plan for IELTS for our exam preparation courses, and authentic media materials for the conversation courses. Courses for young learners are supplemented with themed stories, films, songs, or crafts.

Our courses are offered either as intensive block courses or stretched out over one or two months with classes meeting twice per week. Courses take place in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. We have courses specifically catering to school students that meet in the afternoon or during school holidays, as well as courses catered to oilfield professionals that follow their specific two-weeks on/two-weeks off schedule. All courses at Noor Majan are recognized and certified by the Ministry of Manpower.

Professional and Institutional Capacity Building


Noor Majan is committed to designing its goals and vision in line with the Sultanate’s 2020 & 2040 visions. We believe in investing and developing the talents and abilities of our valued employees, strengthening their capacity to teach and compete in a competitive global economy. Our commitment to developing strong human capital enables usto be among the leading Arabic institutes in the Middle East.

The Sultanate’s 2020 and 2040 vision call upon us to develop human capital and strengthen Omani skills and competencies so that Oman sits among the world’s most competitive nations in a globalized economy. We believe in this and have developed capacity building workshops aimed at professionalizing the field of Arabic and English language teaching in the Sultanate. We have organized workshops with the Dhadh Institute, at the University of Nizwa and The Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic as a Second Language in Manah. We hold that mutual strengthening of skills and knowledge will lead to a more innovative and healthier economy.

Noor Majan participates in U.S. Department of State’s Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) training and capacity building workshops aimed at improving the institute’s performance in foreign language teaching, immersive best practices, and health/safety, logistics of study abroad programs. Noor Majan’s managers, admin personnel, faculty and language partners have participated in these training opportunities online, in the United States,and in Jordan. These training workshops serve as general training for all CLS institutes and then there are specific ones for Arabic institutes, which culminated in a collaborative agreement between Noor Majan and Arab American Language Institute in Morocco (AALIM).

We have contact information for all major private and government health facilities in Ibri and accompany our sick students to clinics and hospitals as necessary. Furthermore we have an agreement with an English-speaking mental health practitioner who’s available for consultation for our students.


Arrival Orientation

In order to allow our students to avoid cultural offence and faux-pas and preventing them from breaking Omani law by ignorance we send students a detailed student handbook with detailed information on Oman’s laws, customs and social mores so they can familiarize themselves with their host country prior to arrival. In country, students receive a card with all relevant telephone numbers and we conduct a thorough cultural and safety orientation.

On-site Support

Our core staff members are available for emergency calls 24/7. We have open communication channels with our students’ sending countries’ embassies in Muscat so that in case of emergency or natural disaster embassies may reach their wardens easily. We also work with the local authorities so that both Royal Oman Police and the Ministry of Manpower, under which we operate, are always aware of our students and work.

We are committed to open communication channels and 24/7 reachability for our students’ sending institutions. For accompanying faculty or supervisors (such as Resident director for Critical Language Scholarship Program, pastor-supervisor for Al Amana Centre group), we can provide accommodation and work spaces if required by the program.

Geographic Diversity

The Sultanate of Oman is defined by its incredible geographical diversity. With an area comparable to New Mexico or Poland and a population of 4.5 million, Oman boasts a unique blend of pristine coastline, rugged mountains, lush oases, seasonal rainforests, colorful deserts, and modern cities. It’s no surprise that Oman was featured on the New York Times’s 52 Places to Visit in 2023 and ranked in the top ten of Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2022. Prepare to be captivated by Oman’s unparalleled natural wonders and vibrant urban landscapes.


Oman’s diverse landscape proudly showcases over 500 historic fortresses and towers, bearing witness to the nation’s illustrious past. These formidable structures served as guardians of trade routes, thwarted Persian and Portuguese invasions, and safeguarded Oman’s ruling families. Crafted from mud brick, stucco, and stone, these forts have withstood the test of time. Perched on hills, nestled among colossal boulders, or nestled beneath majestic mountains, each fortress holds a unique story. Among them, Bahla Fort stands tall as Oman’s largest fort, earning its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore these mighty fortresses and unlock Oman’s rich historical legacy.

Rugged and Untouched Landscapes

Oman’s awe-inspiring landscapes stand as its most recognized feature. The majestic Hajar Mountain range, thrust into the sky by ancient tectonic forces, shaped the Sultanate’s distinct scenery. From the renowned deserts of the Empty Quarter and Sharqiyah Sands to the rugged valleys of Wadi Bani Khalid and Wadi Shab, and the captivating coastal areas of Musandam and Ras Al-Jinz, each location reveals a unique beauty. Jabal Akhdar and Jabal Shams showcase breathtaking mountain vistas, while central Oman’s flat deserts yield abundant oil and gas reserves.

To the west lies Dhofar, a region distinguished by bowl-shaped mountains that serve as a barrier between the sea and the Empty Quarter desert. During the summer months (late June to early September), Dhofar undergoes a remarkable transformation due to the Indian Ocean monsoon. Mist and rain veil Dhofar’s mountains, creating a lush seasonal rainforest that blankets the region in vibrant greenery. Below these verdant peaks lies Salalah, the country’s second-largest city. Salalah is home to one of the world’s oldest frankincense markets and boasts semi-tropical plantations, adding to the region’s allure.
