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

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
