Overall Experience
A student studying abroad with CIEE: Amman - Arabic Language
I got way more comfortable using Arabic casually and confidently, and was finally able to live out of Austin for a long period which improved my sense of self. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and my relationships with other people -- what I want from relationships, the way I interact. I became much more self aware. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Proficiency in Arabic, new friends, knowledge of the religion of Islam - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
It was very worthwhile. I greatly improved my language skills, and I learned a lot about the culture I was studying. - Barnard College View Entire Review
Past Review Immersion
Best experience of my life, and going was one of the best decisions. I learned about the people, culture, and improved my language skills beyond anything I imagined. I feel so connected to that part of the world now and can't wait to go back. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

worthwhile. it will expand/change your perspective to the host country and your own country. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
My Arabic speaking and listening skills improved immensely, especially my Jordanian dialect. I gained a lot of personal confidence, both in using my Arabic in the city and dealing with situations where I had to stand up for myself. I also made some amazing friends, since the students attracted to this program tend to be super in... - Barnard College View Entire Review
Way too much to put in this box. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
It was absolutely worthwhile. I learned what life is. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I gained not only language skills, but the confidence to use them with anyone. I gained a lot of independence while over there. I had been exposed to other cultures before, but my semester gave me a whole new perspective on the world and made me want to make a difference. I also gained a lot of new friends from my program. - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review
I feel one hundred times more aware of global happenings--especially in the Middle East. My language skills are worlds better. Not to mention, the experience will certainly help me in my future job hunt. - Trinity University View Entire Review
I gained a beginners grasp of the Arabic language. A much greater understanding of Arab and Muslim culture and how they view the rest of the world. I got to see many places that few Americans will ever travel to; Beirut and Damascus for example. I would be very interested in a return visit either to work or visit. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Past Review
While I did not like the insane amount of work, not everyone had that experience and this program was definitely worth it. I improved my language skills and met some amazing people. I got some traveling in and I got to live in and understand another culture. - The College of William and Mary View Entire Review

About

Take your Arabic skills to the next level in Amman, the most populous city of Jordan and the country’s economic, political, and cultural center.

You can also make strides in language learning by volunteering at local schools in a rural community or Amman-based organizations that work with underserved communities. During the program, students agree to speak only Arabic to encourage language and cultural acquisition.
