Program Overview

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. Those with advanced Arabic skills take a combination of language, history, and literature courses taught in Arabic at CIEE Amman. 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. All courses are complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions beyond the city to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
