Critical Language, Critical Skills

Want to get a head start on building critical language skills? Or maybe you’re looking to experience the Middle East beyond what you see in the news. You’re in luck—a gap program at CET Jordan will set you up with the tools to become an independent learner of Arabic, while giving you the supportive network to navigate life in Amman, Jordan.  You’ll take intensive language classes, volunteer with a local organization, have a local Jordanian roommate, uphold a part-time language pledge, and have a language partner… it’s no surprise our students make incredible strides in MSA and Jordanian Dialect. And with this kind of exposure before you even begin college, you won’t just have academic credits to give you a boost—you’ll have the skills, cultural competency, and insight to inform your college experience and set you apart from your peers.

Oral Proficiency Interview

Results matter. And when you’re in Amman, taking intensive language classes alongside other motivated gap students and college students majoring in Arabic, Middle Eastern Studies, or International Relations, you know your skills will level up. But because you take an official Oral Proficiency Interview at the end of the term, you’ll have real, tangible evidence of  your progress… perfect for putting on a résumé or an internship application.
