About

Spend your summer abroad learning or advancing your Arabic language skills while exploring Jordan's social, political, and environmental landscapes.

Immediately begin practicing Arabic and experiencing Jordanian history, culture, and contemporary day-to-day life as you explore Jordan’s capital city, Amman, with other members of your group during an interactive orientation. Quickly deepen your immersion in Jordanian culture as you commence your Amman homestay experience. For four weeks, you will gain tremendous insights into Jordan’s culture and daily life, and you can take advantage of around-the-clock opportunities and real-world situations to practice, with your host family and neighbors, the language you’re learning in the classroom. Receive a total of 40 hours of formal Arabic language instruction in small classes composed of Experiment participants only.

Expand your understanding and knowledge of present-day Jordan through thematic workshops and discussions on Jordanian politics, Islam, democracy, human rights, the role of refugees, and multiculturalism. Experience firsthand ongoing debates surrounding Jordan’s environmental and natural resource challenges. Through cultural activities, such as tea nights and cooking classes, take part in Jordan’s culinary culture.

Continue advancing your Arabic while exploring Jordan’s ancient history and present-day resources, cultures, and communities outside of Amman. Spend time with a Bedouin community, one of Jordan’s most distinct and well-known groups. Visit the Dead Sea, the most spectacular natural landscape in Jordan. Explore Petra, a treasure of the ancient world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, and visit the Rocky Mountains of Wadi Rum. This immersive high school summer abroad program begins and concludes in Amman.
