The CIEE Difference

The CIEE Difference

Coursework

Challenge yourself by enrolling in a variety of courses taught entirely in Arabic. Improve your technical writing and public speaking; study contemporary Arabic literature or poetry; explore Arab media or get an introduction to Islam.

Excursions

study abroad in Jordan

Visit Jordan’s archaeological, historical, and natural wonders in Wadi Rum and Petra – all with Arabic-speaking guides. Sleep in tents in the middle of the desert. Tour the Rose-Red City. You’ll also take part in a mid-semester rural retreat in the Jordan Valley or the south of Jordan, where you’ll continue classes with your instructors and participate in service-learning activities in local communities. You’ll also go on special outings to social and cultural events – films, lectures, and exhibits – in the target language.

Volunteering

Maximize your knowledge of Jordan and its people by volunteering. CIEE dedicates several weekends each semester to the cleaning, painting, and general maintenance of a school in an underdeveloped community in Jordan. Program participants are encouraged to volunteer their time on these weekends to help improve the learning environment at an adopted school while also learning more about the host community. Volunteer service does not receive academic credit and is subject to availability.

About the City

About The City

Amman has a history that reaches back at least 5,000 years. Despite the ancient ruins that dominate the downtown skyline, much of the city only dates to the 1970s. Draped over several hills, Amman is a study in contrasts. A traditional downtown souk (marketplace) is a taxi ride away from massive, American- style shopping malls. It is a very accessible, cosmopolitan city with numerous museums, art galleries, theaters, and cinemas. With its reputation for security and hospitality, Amman is home to inhabitants from all over the Middle East. The city provides a safe and stable environment for students to learn about the region.

Housing & Meals

Students are housed in Arabic-speaking homestays from a wide spectrum of Jordanian society. Homestays require students to make adjustments in terms of personal privacy, social habits, and other social norms. Students normally have breakfast and a main meal with the families during the week and may have all meals with them on the weekends. Students are responsible for weekday lunches. Meals are provided on excursions.

Orientations

Orientations

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Amman even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online predeparture orientation. The resident staff meet with students online and share information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions before leaving home. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the predeparture orientation is simple: to help you understand more about the program and identify your goals.

Independent Travel

You're encouraged to travel independently in Jordan during weekends and scheduled breaks. Any travel outside of Jordan requires the completion of the CIEE Amman Independent Travel Form and a review of potential security or safety concerns by the CIEE resident director. You also must sign an independent travel waiver, and are expected to inform your home institution and emergency contacts of all independent travel outside of Jordan.

Immersion

Language

All courses are taught in Arabic. Students take part in the CIEE Community Language Commitment by speaking Arabic at all times with their instructors, peers, and host families.

Close
Academics

Academics

The Arabic Language program is designed to provide students with a full immersion experience commensurate with their abilities and proficiency level. All courses are taught in Arabic and include both subject area content and language instruction. This approach enables students to develop a high level of proficiency in Arabic, and a better understanding of important issues facing Jordan and the Middle East today. Students are tested at the beginning of the program, and again at its conclusion, to document their language acquisition during their studies here. Final program eligibility and course placement are determined by the on-site placement exam.

Academic Culture

The program is academically and linguistically challenging and requires a solid commitment on the part of students. Classes are small, often taught tutorial style, and require discipline and sustained effort both in and outside of the classroom. Instructors are native Arabic speakers who are trained in their fields and in teaching Arabic language.

Nature of Classes

Participants take classes with other CIEE students only.

CIEE Community Language Commitment

Students take part in the CIEE Community Language Commitment by speaking Arabic at all times (except in emergencies). This fosters a learning community that contributes to both Arabic language proficiency and understanding of Jordanian society. Keeping the language commitment is a vital component of student language acquisition during the semester that should be thoroughly considered prior to application.

Grading System

Grades (A-F with pluses and minuses, converted from a 100-point scale) are assigned based on mid-term and final exams, and, depending on the course, additional assignments, such as a research paper or a class presentation. Attendance and class participation also are incorporated into the final grade for the program courses. Class attendance is mandatory in all CIEE classes.
