Popularized by the Indiana Jones movies, the lost city of Petra has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985. It's a must-see archaeological destination and located in the beautiful Middle Eastern country of Jordan. Going to Arabic school in Jordan is a smart choice and one with many rewards. The capital city of Amman is a modern metropolitan that is safe and hospitable and the citizens are extremely welcoming. Amman has much to offer, from the scent of nargileh to the sounds of Arabic pop, but the rest of the country is not to be missed. Treat your ailments at a Dead Sea spa and visit the Roman ruins of Jerash. Sample fresh fish and cardamom coffee near the Gulf of Aqaba and dip your toes into the aqua blue waters. Over half the country is blanketed by the Arabian desert. Embark upon a camel ride through the bright red sands of the Wadi Rum and happen upon a palm-laced wadi, or valley, where you may find water (it's no mirage). Even with all the desert sands, the country experiences a Mediterranean climate, particularly in the more arable northwestern lands. Summers are typically hot and dry, while winters often cool and wet. Whatever the temperature, Jordan is a land full of natural beauty, exciting history and a great setting for learning. Taking Arabic courses in Jordan will immerse you in the local culture and provide the perfect mix of Middle Eastern flavors.
Ahlan World offers Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) courses across 8 levels, from absolute beginner to advanced. MSA is the standard Arabic that forms the basis of all Arabic dialects across the Arab world.
Jordanian Colloquial Arabic (JCA) courses offer students an immersive study of the
Jordanian dialect, which is used by locals for everyday interactions and conversation.
The Jordanian dialect is very similar to other Levantine dialects, which include those
spoken in Lebanon and Syria, and is also closer to MSA than many other Arabic dialects,
especially those used in northern Africa.
