A Message from MLC Director Faris Awad


Every year we welcome hundreds of Jordanian students and from four continents and over 40 countries, therefore, we offer a truly international atmosphere. Some come to the Modern Language Center (MLC) to study Arabic for non-native speakers, English, German or Turkish language.
Whether you stay for a short course or for a year, we aim to do all we can to make your stay enjoyable, to help you to achieve your language goals and to provide you with a pleasant and safe place to live during your stay in Jordan.
Our teachers, administrators and accommodation staff are all committed to working hard as a team to meet the needs of our students, and I am proud of the MLC’s friendly and supportive atmosphere.
We look forward to welcoming you at MLC.

About MLC

MLC Director Faris Awad

The Modern Language Center ( MLC ) has a long-standing tradition of commitment to providing high quality education to every student. Our Arabic language program strives to provide comprehensive language skills to non-native Arabic speakers and ultimately prepare students to pass Oral Proficiency Interviews (OPI). Besides, various levels of primary, intermediate and advanced English, Turkish and German are being taught at MLC, the first center of its kind in Jordan. It is noteworthy that over the years the Center has been accredited with continued success and integrity since its establishment in 1970. Most recently the center has become an active member in American Association of Teachers of Arabic (AATA) which aims at facilitating communication and cooperation between teachers of Arabic and to promoting study, criticism, research and instruction in the field of Arabic language pedagogy, Arabic linguistics and Arabic literature and also we hold international exams such as (ECCE) (ECPE) and (MELAB) for Cambridge Michigan Language Assessment, (CaMLA). Locally in Jordan, the MLC is a certified center from the Ministry of Education since 1970.
One of the latest success stories that MLC has achieved is being accredited by the Caucasus University Association (CUA) as a center for students in Jordan and its surroundings to attend the entrance examination ( KUNIB – YOS) for 80 Turkish universities.

99% of our students would recommend MLC to a friend and would also come back to study here again.
