Develop and expand Arabic language competency in speaking, reading, and writing Modern Standard Arabic and colloquial Arabic in Jordan. Appropriate for all skill levels.
WHY STUDY ARABIC IN JORDAN?
Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with more than 400 million native speakers and dozens of dialects. Learn Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian colloquial Arabic during this intensive language immersion program. By living and learning in an Arabic-only environment with classroom instruction, field exercises, and homestays, you’ll rapidly learn to speak and understand Arabic and experience Arab and Jordanian culture. Enjoy a five-day excursion to see the diverse communities and historic areas of Wadi Rum, Ajloun, Jerash, and Petra.
Educational excursions outside of Amman reveal Jordan’s rich cultural heritage and natural beauty while providing opportunities for you to practice your language skills.
