In Muhammad Ali’s military and civilian schools, the initial language of instruction was Turkish. Subjects included military science, engineering, and mathematics. Comprehensive school systems were established to train male students as engineers and military officers. For a while, Persian was taught alongside Turkish and Arabic. Turkish textbooks for use in Egypt were printed in Cairo. In the latter part of the nineteenth century, schools for girls were also opened. As Ottoman influence in Egypt waned and British influence grew, Turkish was gradually replaced by English in many circumstances.
