American Language Centers (ALC)

American Language Centers in Ma’an, Mafraq, Irbid, and East Amman will enable thousands of Jordanians to improve their English language proficiency, enhance their cultural awareness and engage in the peaceful exchange of ideas, ultimately fostering greater opportunities for meaningful employment, career advancement, and expanded cross-cultural understanding. ALC English and cultural programs are designed to empower individuals with the knowledge, attitudes, English language skills, and 21st-century skills such as critical thinking and problem-solving to thrive in Jordan’s labor market.

The American Language Centers are funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Office of Assistance Coordination in fulfillment of its commitment to youth economic development in Jordan. It is managed by Amideast/Jordan in partnership with three Jordanian organizations: Al Qantara Center for Human Resources Development, New Approach for Training and Development (NATD), and the Jordan Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD).

As Jordan pursues its 2022 Economic Growth Plan, the skills gap between the needs of the labor market and the abilities of job-seeking youth, women, people with disabilities, and working adults will continue to widen. The American Language Centers will support the Jordanian government’s efforts to close this skills gap through innovative cultural programming and quality English language instruction that is affordable and inclusive.
