Why not spend your gap year building critical language skills in the Middle East? Gap at CET Jordan is an Arabic intensive language program for students who have graduated high school. The program runs for Spring, Summer, and Fall terms.
All students are placed into the appropriate levels of Modern Standard Arabic and Jordanian Dialect. You take intensive language classes, live with a local Jordanian roommate, have weekly meetings with a language partner... you even uphold a full or partial language pledge. All that practice prepares you to take an official Oral Proficiency Interview at the end of the term—perfect for adding to a résumé or school application. And by the time your first semester of college rolls around, you'll have the knowledge and tools to test out of foreign language requirements or continue to thrive in Arabic classes.
You and other Gap at CET students from all over the world also meet virtually each week to explore topics and issues unique to gap students. This not-for-credit course is taught in English and creates a space for facilitated reflection and discussion. You learn about your personal strengths and learning styles, establish and track goals, and participate in activities that help you explore potential careers and college majors and build skills for the future.
