    Summer Intensive Arabic in Jordan

                 Conducted in English

Under King Abdullah II and his father King Hussein, Jordan has made great strides in education, health care, and economic reform while creating a distinctively Jordanian democratic structure. Nonetheless, the country has many issues that students can study and observe firsthand—the effects of regional conflicts, social change, lack of natural resources, environmental concerns, and the need for economic development. 


Amman, capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an ancient city facing modern challenges, thus making it an exciting place to live and study. Built on seven hills, Amman has expanded in size and population from a quaint, sleepy town at the close of World War II, to the bustling, multicultural metropolis it is today. At the heart of the city is the ancient Citadel containing ruins from many civilizations. It overlooks a well-preserved and restored Roman Amphitheater, today used for concerts and cultural events. Further afield in Jordan there are Roman ruins in Jerash and the spectacular Nabatean city of Petra in the south.

The program offers a 5-week session. The curriculum is based on AMIDEAST’s Arabic Language and Culture Curriculum, which is functional and communicative in its approach. The teachers are carefully selected native speakers with excellent language-teaching experience and skills.

Students applying to this program are required to have a 3.0 GPA or above.
