American Language Center

Move of the American Language Center

Amman –  English classes and accompanying cultural activities previously provided at the American Language Center (ALC) are now being  offered by AMIDEAST Jordan, in partnership and with financial support from the Embassy of the United States in Amman.  AMIDEAST’s ALC program will implement the curriculum and teaching model utilized at the current facility, including supplemental cultural activities.  The AMIDEAST ALC courses and activities will continue to afford thousands of young Jordanians the opportunity to learn English at a reasonable cost, experience American culture first-hand, and discuss policy issues of mutual interest.

As of June 1, 2017, ALC classes and cultural events are  no longer being held at the previous  ALC building (near Madinah Al Munawrah Street).  The Embassy coordinates with AMIDEAST to ensure that classroom instruction and cultural activities closely mirror the previous ALC  experience of students and other visitors.

Details about cultural events and activities, such as language exchange, film club, book club, and others, will continue to be posted on the ALC Facebook page, in addition to select events also published on the Embassy’s social media platforms.

We invite our current and previous English students to join us in making this transition a success.  Please register with the ALC program at AMIDEAST, and we look forward to continuing our friendship and engagement.

As part of the US Embassy in Jordan, the American Language Center facilitates understanding between the people of the United States and other nations by providing:

  • high quality English language education;
  • an informal setting to practice English and learn about American culture using a variety of onsite resources;
  • ongoing opportunities to participate in free cultural programs; and
  • outreach to organizations such as schools and nonprofit centers to promote cross- cultural exchange.
