Jordan Programs

Through summer, semester, and academic-year programs, we help students improve their Arabic skills while gaining an intimate cultural experience. Students are immersed in Jordanian daily life and culture, providing abundant opportunities to learn about this small but complex country.

“AMIDEAST was a great introduction to Jordanian culture, and I would recommend the program to anyone who wishes to study Arabic abroad.”
