Heliopolis Akademeia is an organization for education and bridging cultures. Today foreign languages such as Arabic , Farsi , Korean , and many more are absolutely needed for American National Security. As a scholar and a veteran tenured professor of languages ( French-Arabic-Coptic ) I believe that much of the funds allocated for teaching these languages abroad are wasted . At Heliopolis Akademeia we can provide the same service, even better , for ( Arabic and French in particular -All levels : elementary, intermediate and advanced ) for a fraction of the funds paid to Arabic institutions abroad.At Heliopolis our goals are high, but not unrealistic. Professor G.R. Menes has implemented a very successful Arabic program ( level I & II ) at Community colleges in California ( LACC-TTC – WLA ) but budget cuts and politics are in the way, nonetheless it continues to be a great success
