About Program

Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with more than 400 million native speakers and dozens of dialects. Learn Modern Standard Arabic in the online course and add Jordanian colloquial Arabic during an intensive language J-term immersion program in Jordan. Learn Arabic in an Arabic-only environment with classroom instruction. Add on field exercises and homestays during the J-term and you’ll rapidly learn to speak and understand Arabic while experiencing Arab and Jordanian culture.

You’ll enjoy a three-day excursion to see diverse communities and historic places, including Jesus’ baptism Site, the Dead Sea, Wadi Rum, and Petra. Educational excursions outside of Amman reveal Jordan’s rich cultural heritage and natural beauty while providing additional opportunities for you to practice your language skills.
