Based in Amman, this intensive field-based Arabic language immersion program uses a content-based approach. Students engage in an Arabic-only environment of classroom instruction, field exercises, and homestays to learn Arabic and Arab culture. The emphasis of the course is Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), with additional instruction in Jordanian colloquial Arabic. Students gain an understanding of Arabic diglossia and proper usage of MSA versus colloquial. Students at an advanced proficiency level will have a Media Arabic component built into the curriculum.
Prior to arrival in-country, students will have one week of coursework online.
