Jordan Language Academy--Summer Complete Immersion Program: 2011

Jordan Language Academy--Summer Complete Immersion Program: 2011

Dates: Starts on the 25th of June and Ends on the 18th of August
Days of the Week: Sunday - Thursday
Timing: 9: a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (5 teaching hours with one hour break)
Staff Members: Our staff members are highly qualified professors and instructors who have very impressive knowledge and experience in their fields. All of them are specialized in the subjects they teach and have the experience and publications that make us proud of having them all with us.

Tuition Fees: 1050 Jordanian Dinars
Group Rates: 930 Jordanian Dinars (A group is 5 or more students)
A Jordanian Dinar is equivalent to 1.4 US $ and approximately 0.87 British Pound. Our rates do not include housing, food, excursions and entrance fees to Jordanian sites. Students can borrow textbooks from the Academy and hand them by the end of the course. You can bring your textbook with you as it is cheap overseas. Jordan Language Academy offers very special group rates.

Total Number of Hours: 200 contact hours.

Content:
A: Language: The language program is divided into 3 major levels are beginners, intermediate and advanced. All these levels include the four major skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. Special emphasis is put on grammar, vocabulary and conversational skills. The standard percentage of dialect is 20%, although many institutions ask for more or less than this percentage. JLA expresses flexibility on this regard n order to meet the different needs of its students. Each level has its standard curricula and textbooks.

B: Culture: Parallel to the language program we have a cultural program that includes Arabic literature, Calligraphy, Archaeology of Jordan, Arabic society, Arabic media, Arabic music, Middle East political issues, Arabic culture (traditions, customs, costumes and Arabic cooking). Advanced programs include language, culture, clubs, and basic courses in translation and interpretation.
Clubs: JLA has the following clubs to encourage students using the language and familiarizing themselves with the culture:

- Chatting Club: students will have the chance to sit and chat with a native speaker of Arabic according to a schedule of topics that enforce the topics they studied in classroom. In this club students will have a more spontaneous conversation and can learn from their own mistakes.
- Book Club: The book club is arranged by your professors. Your professors will suggest an Arabic book to be read every fortnight. The professor will give a general presentation on the blogs on the JLA website. During the week, students and the professor will discuss online the main themes, the plot, the style of the writer etc. This proved to be a very informative and useful method to our students as they can learn a lot from their professors and from each other.
- Cinema Club: In this club, very selective Arabic films and documentaries are presented to our students at a regular basis.
- Cooking Club: One of our enthusiastic teachers will introduce major Arabic and Jordanian and Middle Eastern dishes to our students. Students will participate in preparing dishes and enjoy the food after that.

In some cases, if the students' number in a course or program is three or less, we have the right to change the course from a full/part- time format into tutoring format. Students are always welcome to suggest a course to the JLA administration, which will be very positively considered. We are always ready to tune our courses to meet our students’ needs. Please do not hesitate to give us your comments and suggestions so we can be of help to you.

Teaching Methodology: Our approach is mainly communicative. We believe in interactive and dynamic methodology. It proved to be very effective in the development of students' communication skills. In most of our classes, students are given good chances to practice and develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

The communicative method belief is that it is important not to be restricted by a specific Arabic language textbook. Although we rely on Al-Kitaab and other series, we never feel that textbooks must be used from cover to cover. They should only be used as tool, as a starting-point. With a little inspiration and imagination, an Arabic language textbook can be manipulated and rendered for a more communicative purpose. Teachers must free themselves from it, rely more on their own command of language and professional expertise as to what linguistic items, skills, idioms, phrases, words, need to be drilled, exploited and extended.

We do not want you to know Arabic without being able to use it. We want you to use it, practice it. Language is a practical skill you need to develop through practice, not only something you need to learn. That is why our teaching method focuses on the development of the four skills: speaking, listening, reading & writing.

Our staff members are highly qualifies professors and instructors who have very impressive knowledge and experience in their fields. All of them are specialized in the subjects they teach and have the experience and publications that make us proud of having them all with us.

Each course syllabus is built and prepared for each subject under reliable and objective measures of linguistic ability and details the specific contents and skills that students should learn and acquire in each level.

Although we are very confident that we offer the best service, we will be always happy to receive your comments and suggestions to meet our students' expectations.

Placement Test: On the first day of study students will sit for a skill placement test. The placement test will evaluate your skill level and place you in the right class.
Development Test: By the end of the course students sit for a development test so JLA and students and if applicable their institutions will have a detailed idea about their skill development.
Course Evaluation Report: Students will be asked to fill a Course Evaluation form so JLA can get their feedback and comments on courses, instruction, etc so we can protect our standards. And make sure that our standards are consistent in all classes and sections.
Library: Jordan Language Academy has an agreement with ACOR (American Center of Oriental Research)

Speakers: We have a regular program of guest speakers. Our speakers are well-known distinguished people in many cultural fields.
Flexibility: JLA offers tailor-made programs that meet the needs of learners. We can arrange programs and courses to one or more students according to their specific and technical needs. We have done that several times for students from different countries and reached excellent results. These courses can be offered anytime of the year.
Excursion: Learning Arabic is not restricted to classroom education and weekdays. JLA offers a range of optional full and half-day excursions to nearby archaeological sites, natural treasures of Jordan and cultural activities and events. Your professors, specialized tour guides, or archaeologists will accompany you in your tours. Students will be encouraged to practice their Arabic in these excursions. These excursions can be combined with lessons or private tutoring. Tours are usually arranged in weekends.
Volunteer Work: JLA is very keen to find natural cultural opportunities for its students to further immerse in the Arabic culture. Students can strengthen their knowledge of the social life, economic pattern, cultural norms and customs etc, by complementing their language learning experience in an authentic environment far from books and classrooms. We find volunteer work opportunities for our students in the Jordanian institutions. These opportunities are dominated by students' skills, commitment, and their backgrounds from one side and the opportunities available in the Jordanian institutions at a given time.
