Karim Badawy Scholarship

Who is Karim Badawy?

Karim Badawy (1984-2014) was a young and excelling college student, specializing in Modern German litreature. Karim had a disability that caused him great pain and body paralysis. Despite his severe health condition, he was able to excel in his German language, in the faculty of al Alsun, and has shown great initiative and brilliance in his language. He was an avid learner at ÄDK and was a contestant visitor to our cultural and educational events. We believe there are many brilliant people like Karim in our society and it is our responsibility to help develop them.

In ÄDK we believe that we have social responsibility for our community. We believe in developing and empowering youth and all society members. That’s why we offer the Karim Badawy scholarship for disabled people and individuals. ÄDK offers 10 people annually a full scholarship to learn German in the institute, including resources and materials.The scholarship includes the persons accompanying the candidate, they too can be part of this scholarship. A Panel of specialists help filter out the nominees. If you think you are eligible or know someone that is eligible for the scholarship, please send us a brief description or a resume on

ÄDK Teaching Diploma

The art of teaching is something we have mastered throughout the long years of working in this field. We do believe that for someone to teach German, he needs more than a good command of the German language.A knowledge into the techniques and art of teaching and its methodologies, are what makes unique teachers distinct.

From ages 7-14

This course is targeted for students who want to learn or are learning German as their second language. We aim here to increase their vocabulary and language skills and their ability to communicate in German. Students usually come after a long day’s work at school, so we make sure our teaching method is different, engaging and fun for them.

This course is targeted for students who want to learn or are learning German as their second language. We aim here to increase their vocabulary and language skills and their ability to communicate in German. Students usually come after a long day’s work at school, so we make sure our teaching method is different, engaging and fun for them.

In this course children get to write their stories and roam with their imagination under the supervision of the teacher. The teacher works closely with the children to develop their ideas and language and helps them to express themselves freely. They also get to draw and illustrate their stories and work on their drawing skills with the help of a professional.

This course is useful for the children’s creative expression and their self confidence to express themselves freely in their writings and drawings. It is also an opportunity for parents to see and observe the inner thoughts and psychological state of their children , through seeing what goes on their mind in their drawings and writings. The drawings and writings of the children say a lot about their inner thoughts and psychological states. Parents can then see what is going on in their children’s’ mind. At many times, parents do not pay careful attention to what their children say, dismissing them as being trivial or ‘childish’ . When in fact, those ideas could make a great room for self expression and creativity. This is what we try to develop closely in this course.

ÄDK Children making scares

Pedagogical objectives

Fostering children’s potential is a priority for us in ÄDK. That is a belief that shapes how we handle our courses and workshops for children. Our courses help children develop their skills and language while encouraging them to be free, critical and independent thinkers.
