About

Rapidly learn or improve your Arabic language skills through intensive language study in Jordan.

This program gives students of wide-ranging levels, including beginners, an exceptional opportunity to learn Arabic through full immersion in Jordan. Through classroom learning, homestays, and field-based ex­ercises, students learn and improve their usage and understanding of Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian Colloquial Arabic. Students are fully immersed in an Arabic-only environment.

Major topics of study include:

- Competencies in speaking, listening, reading, and writing
- Communication in a variety of situations with native Arabic speakers, incorporating cultur­ally appropriate gestures
- Stories from the local Jordanian press and other Arab media outlets (ARAB 3000 students only)
- Conversational proficiency as a solid foun­dation for further learning
- The tools necessary to increase language proficiency independently
