Program Description:

Program OverviewCIEE Amman

Amman, Jordan's capital, is a rapidly growing city with a history extending back at least 5,000 years. Despite its long history, most of Amman is quite new, having been built after World War II. The city is draped over several hills, has a bustling souk (marketplace), and numerous museums, art galleries, theaters, and cinemas. Amman is cosmopolitan, with inhabitants from all over the Middle East. The city provides a safe and stable environment while offering many opportunities for students to learn about the region.

Program Focus

This program is designed for students who already have a solid foundation in Modern Standard Arabic and seek to attain proficiency in the language. In addition to advanced language instruction in Modern Standard Arabic, students have equivalent instruction in Colloquial Jordanian Arabic. Elective classes in the target language emphasize different linguistic skill sets, such as reading comprehension, while offering a variety of subject matter. Students also receive training in cross-cultural communication to augment their advanced linguistic skills.
