Lebanon is a small country (just over 10,400 square kilometers in size) situated along the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. All regions are within easy reach of the capital Beirut: it will take a maximum of 4 hours to drive from one end of the country to the other. Beirut, Tripoli, Byblos, Sidon, Tyre and other major cities are situated on the narrow coastal plain, only 6 Km at its widest point. The country enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters.

Lebanon’s strategic location has, from the earliest times, made it the center of the Middle East’s tumultuous history. Lebanon is an Arab country, and Arabic is the official language. Besides Arabic, most Lebanese speak French and English. Lebanon is unique among Arab countries, however, as it has a laissez-faire capitalist economy and a democratic system of government with an active parliament. Elections are held for municipal councils and for the President of the Republic every six years, while members of Parliament are elected every four years.

Since Lebanon has, for many years, been a trading nation, its citizens have always had a very worldly and a strong proficiency in foreign languages, particularly French and English. Lebanese also have a deep belief in the importance of education. Lebanon has one of the best educational systems in the Middle East and private sector involvement in high. Approximately half of the Lebanese students attend private schooling from elementary to secondary levels.
