"As a teacher we need humility as well as confidence."


Erbil is a very well-known city with the ancient neighborhoods of the Abbasid era. It was built more than 1,200 years ago and was a beacon of science, knowledge, and culture. In the past, Baghdad was referred to as the meeting place of East and West. The city became famous by its writers, scholars, narrators, and scientists. It is worth mentioning, that Iraq is the first civilization in the world, and the Sumerians were the first civilization that invented writing. Iraqis were the first to create laws represented by The Code of Hammurabi. So visiting Iraq, particularly Baghdad, will have a great impact on you in discovering the secret that combines the past with the present and enlightens science and culture.
