This is my first shot at writing a blog! I’m looking forward to learning how to blog well this semester so I can keep you all updated on what life is like in Amman, Jordan.
My name is Dana, I’m from Gig Harbor, Washington and I’m studying Middle East Studies/Arabic at Brigham Young University. I’m in my third year at BYU and even though I love Provo, I’m spending this semester on Study Abroad in Amman, Jordan. I’ve been studying Arabic for almost two years and I’m here participating in a 3.5 month intensive language program put on by our wonderful Arabic directors at BYU. This is my first experience in a foreign country and I absolute love this new culture! This blog is my attempt to share some of that culture and experience with all of you. I hope you enjoy 🙂
