Intensive Arabic Language in Jordan

CET Jordan teacher whiteboard
CET Jordan: Intensive Language students are fully immersed in Arabic language learning and watch their language skills improve by leaps and bounds. They take intensive Arabic language courses--Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian Dialect. During the semesters, students up the ante by taking two content-based Arabic language courses as well. Jordanian roommates and language partners, and a full-time language pledge ensure that students speak Arabic only for the entire term. This program is for serious students with at least two previous semesters of university-level Arabic language study.
