Arabic in Jordan

Jordan Header Image

These lessons will help you learn normal conversation in Jordan, rather than focusing on formalities.

Classical Arabic is the formal language in Jordan. It is used in books, newspapers, radio and T.V. However, you should know that the normal Jordanian conversation is often quite different from the formal language. Dialects of the people you meet will vary based on ancestry and regions within Jordan. For example the word (coffee) is pronounced "gahwa" in rural areas, but in Amman it is pronounced "ahwa".

In the Arabic in Jordan manual, several topics are introduced where you will find some Arabic words and expressions along with their transliteration and English meaning. Some grammatical and cultural notes are also included in order to help you familiarize yourself with the language as well as the culture.
