CET Jordan: Summer

Pick Your
Pledge

Before the term begins, you decide on what type of language pledge commitment you want for your term in Jordan. This choice directly influences your housing and extra-curricular life, so it’s important to think carefully about your decision. 

FULL LANGUAGE PLEDGE

Commit to speaking Arabic all the time—in your classes, out in the city, interacting with CET peers, and even your daily life at home. Under a full pledge, you’re housed with other full pledge students, attend extra-curricular activities together, and are challenged to consume Arabic language media/art in your free time. 

Students who uphold a full language pledge can reasonably expect to progress as follows:

  • Novice to intermediate high or advanced low
  • Intermediate to advanced low/high
  • Advanced to superior

LIMITED LANGUAGE PLEDGE

Commit to speaking Arabic while in classes, at the CET Center, and on all program activities. In your free time, you’re required to speak an additional three hours of Arabic daily and the rest is up to you. You’re housed with other limited language pledge students. 
 
Students who uphold a limited language pledge can reasonably expect to progress as follows:
  • Novice low to novice high
  • Intermediate mid/high to advanced low
  • Advanced students make horizontal progress within the advanced spectrum
