I have been advised against sharing flats with an english person. How can you help me seeing that we fly out in pairs/groups of friends?
The whole point of going to an Arab country is to immerse yourself in the language. My peers who have gone there have suggested that their progress was impeded by constantly being around the other many westerners there. How can i get away from this and ensure a productive stay in Egypt.

I've lived with English speakers and non-English speakers and living with non-English speakers definitely helps improve your Arabic but when I lived with English speakers I felt more relaxed at home because after exhausting long classes I just wanted to relax and chat with mates in English. 

If you can live with non-English speakers then take the chance but if you cant don't worry about.

And Allah Knows Best
