CET Jordan: Intensive Language


Flexibility in Designing Your Studies

Learning Arabic is not a cookie-cutter process. Yes, all students take Modern Standard Arabic and the appropriate level of Jordanian Dialect, but assignments and activities are adjusted to meet individual learning styles. Whether your background is in public health or anthropology, whether you prefer one-on-one instruction or group projects, we customize the program to fit your needs.

Total Arabic Immersion

You’ll take a full load of Arabic language classes, live with a local roommate, meet with an Arabic language partner, attend language activities, and if that’s not enough, you’ll uphold a full-time language pledge, too. It won’t be easy, but when Arabic starts pouring out of your mouth without your thinking about it, we think you’ll agree that it’s worth the effort.

Community Approach to City Living

One of the hard parts of studying abroad is finding a community overseas. At CET, we set that up for you. You’ll walk into a supportive network of staff, teachers, roommates, and language & academic partners who care as much about your wellbeing as they do about your progress in the program. And when you’re done, our alumni network waits to welcome you home.
