Past Review Unforgettable
I learned how to be more self-sufficient. I'm a better prepared traveler. I've learned to take setbacks in stride and I am confident I can deal with any problems that come my way. I would most certainly do it again. It was definitely worthwhile, I wish I could've stayed longer. - University of Notre Dame View Entire Review
Learned more than I expected about Arabic and Arab culture. - CUNY - City College View Entire Review

It was definitely worthwhile. - American University View Entire Review
I learned to be independent and not be afraid to make mistakes when I am speaking in the target language. I learned to really push myself in order to see what I have mastered inside the classroom. - Georgia State University View Entire Review
Great language instruction, friendly and organized program staff and instructors, and a great host family. I got a good feel for Jordanian culture, and wish I could have stayed longer. - CUNY - Queens College View Entire Review
It helped my language skills and I learned a lot about the region I couldn't in books. Made me more interested in the Levant area in general. - George Washington University View Entire Review

About

The AMIDEAST Education Abroad Summer Intensive Arabic
program in Amman, Jordan provides students with the opportunity to earn up to a
full academic year of Arabic in just one summer. Beginning, intermediate, and
advanced level students can jumpstart their Arabic language journey through rigorous
study in blended Modern Standard and Colloquial Jordanian Arabic.  Students live with Arabic-speaking Jordanian homestay
families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s center in the bustling neighborhood
of Abdoun in Amman. The program is divided into two four-week sessions, and
classes meet five hours a day, five days per week. Each session includes about
100 hours of instruction in blended Arabic for a total of six Arabic language credits. One summer

US campus.
