Language Partners

Practice and learn Arabic with native speakers. The Language Partner Program creates opportunities for Arabic Language Center students to connect with native speakers in the academic community and practice Arabic in an authentic context. Students meet weekly with Language Partners for at least one hour in a comfortable, yet professional setting and engage in productive conversation. Language partners are Jordanian students affiliated with The MALIC Center that are interested in learning about other cultures and languages by meeting students from different countries around the world. However, this is not a language exchange program for Jordanian students interested in learning English. Language partners are prohibited from speaking English or any other language than Arabic during their weekly meetings with students, to prevent any disruption of our students’ language acquisition progress
