This manual is a brief presentation of the spoken Arabic language and some cultural behaviors in Jordan. With the help of the enclosed interactive language digital audio files, you will be able to hear and pronounce the sounds of Arabic and become familiar with them.
In this 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. 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". These lessons will help you learn normal conversation in Jordan, rather than focusing on formalities.

Jordanian Arabic is a set of dialects of the Levantine Arabic language that are originated in the Jordanian Kingdom and are spoken by Jordanians. Jordanian Arabic has a Semitic language structure, with lexical influence of English, Turkish and French. It is spoken by more than 6 million people, and understood in the Levant as well as the rest of the Arab World. As with all other Arab countries, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan lives in a state of diglossia, where Modern Standard Arabic is the official language used in most written documents and the media, while daily conversation is held in different varieties of Jordanian Arabic. Although there is a common Jordanian dialect mutually understood by most Jordanians, the daily language spoken throughout the country varies significantly through regions and socio-economical origin. These variants impact altogether pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.?
