We’ll help you land an internship at one of Amman’s many non-profits or local organizations. Outside of your internship, you’ll uphold a limited language pledge, take MSA
(the language of the nightly newscasts), and Jordanian Dialect
(the language between friends). The program will get you out the door, practicing Arabic where it counts
. Read about the Dead Sea before you visit, and present about its history when you return. Bargain at the Friday flea market, then come back and describe to your language partner how it went. At the end of the term, you’ll take an official Oral Proficiency Interview
. Your OPI is written proof of the Arabic language gains that you’ve made…perfect for a résumé or grad school application.
