The original ALC, located near Dowar Waha on Madina Monawara Street, provided English language courses and cultural activities to Jordanians interested in improving their English skills and learning more about America. Now, AMIDEAST is prepared to take the programs of ALC to the next level at its training facilities in Wadi Abdoun.

AMIDEAST and ALC offer 40-hour General English Language courses designed to promote development and fluency in English language through lessons, topics and discussions on American life, traditions, people and culture.

Using the American English File 2nd Edition textbook series, ALC General English Language classes focus on the development of speaking, listening, reading and writing skills across a wide variety of common topics and scenarios encountered in daily professional and social life. AMIDEAST’s learner-centered classrooms and curriculum encourage students to become their own agents of language development with the support and guidance of AMIDEAST’s experienced and certified English language trainers.

AMIDEAST’s English language courses are open to the public – ages 16 and above. Students successfully completing all course requirements will receive a course certificate at the end of each level.

Placement Testing

New students interested in registering for an upcoming course must take an English language placement test prior to enrolling. The placement test requires 70 minutes to complete and scores are available immediately from customer service. Placement scores are used to place students in the appropriate course level on English.

AMIDEAST offers placement testing sessions for the public from Sunday to Thursday at 12:30 PM and on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30 PM. AMIDEAST also holds weekend placement testing sessions on the Saturday prior to every General English language course launch. Results from placement testing are valid for six months from the date of the assessment.

AMIDEAST reserves the right to cancel courses that do not meet the minimum enrollment requirements.
