Arabic for Life.
Founded in 2005, CGE Jordan is a leading Arabic language institute located in the Midas Furniture building in the Khalda district of Amman, Jordan. For more than a decade, we have been helping students like yourself effectively engage the Arab World and its people in a deep and meaningful way.
We put our energies into two all-important objectives:
In 2005, CGE Jordan started with a simple idea. We wanted to teach serious students how to communicate effectively with Arabs in everyday life. A year later, with only two instructors, a small, three-room office and an even smaller budget, we set out teach our first students.
Now, with over 15 classrooms inside of a 600 square meter space, we are proud to say that this singular vision for Arabic instruction has remained central to who we are. Our humble beginning makes us appreciate what we do even more and it feeds our motivation to be the best we can for our clients.

We are located on the 3rd floor of the Midas Furniture building which is located on Wasfi At-Tall Street (pronounced "at-tell") in the Khalda district of Amman. We offer high quality instruction in both the Spoken Arabic dialect and Modern Standard Arabic.
CGE Jordan has developed its own curriculum for Spoken Arabic and instruction is oriented around the communicative approach, giving special attention to high frequency, task-centered, and topic-based lessons. For Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), instruction is especially geared toward reading, writing, and listening skills.

CGE (The Consortium for Global Education) was founded in 1987 by the leadership of some of America’s finest private universities for the purpose of expanding their international activities and enhancing international partnerships. The Consortium has been steadily growing over the years and currently represents 43 universities in 13 states all across America. CGE's member universities represent the best America has to offer in higher education. Our institutions have established an estimated 240 mutually beneficial partnerships with some of the world’s most prestigious universities in more than 80 countries.
CGE is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia and operates under the guidance of a board consisting of the presidents of its member institutions or their designated representatives. Dr. Carolyn Bishop, CGE’s president, has more than twenty years of experience with international, public, and private schools, government ministries, and foreign educational institutions. Dr. Bishop has served CGE in a leadership capacity since 1997 and travels extensively, speaking at conferences and providing direction for CGE’s many international projects and partnerships.
Our students come from very diverse backgrounds and from all over the world. However, the majority of our students come from the United States, the UK, and Europe. Many of our students are adult, career-minded learners, but we also cater to university students through CGE's intensive Arabic study abroad program.
