Off topic: Good schools for learning Arabic?

I wonder if anyone here is familiar with schools in Egypt that teach students Arabic and to teach English? I’m looking at this program and considering trying to do this or something similar next year: http://www.teflcourse.com/specials/alexandria/. But I do not know anything about the quality of the school and its program. I think the Monterey Institute in California, USA, may be a better way to learn Arabic (because of the length of the program, the intensity of study, and reputation of the school) http://language.miis.edu/ifl/silp_pd_arabic.html, but would not offer the opportunity to completely immerse myself in a cultural experience that would enhance the learning (and with twice the cost).
Would you offer a professional (or personal) opinion on the best way for an American with only English and very basic Spanish language skills to prepare for spending some time in Egypt? It seems that I can't learn a langauge without total immersion.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
