A New Blog Full Of Photos From Conversation Corps-Jordan

Have you ever wondered what it's like to live with a family in Jordan, and tutor them in English?  Thought, "What would it be like to join The Conversation Corps and depart for Jordan, live with a family and tutor them in conversational English? We recommend reading Jason's Blog that he published while he was in Jordan as a member of the Conversation Corps.  His Blog, Life in Amman, introduces you to the Corps and to living in Amman with a host family tutoring them in conversational English.  The Blog is full of program details, photographs and video. The very first Blog entry, "First Couple of Days in Amman" gets you invovled in where Jason lives (just outside Amman) and where the sunsets are stunning and "sunrises gorgeous." In the post, "Past Few Days," Jason has gone out to buy black pants so he can attend an Arabic wedding.  He has met a new friend just 5 minutes away, and he gets to practice his Arabic with him. One of the reasons GeoVisions set up the Conversation Corps is the free time tutors have on this program.  Jason writes about his trip from Jordan to Jerusalem and his take on Arabic life outside of Jordan.  The Blog post, "The Game, Madaba, and Jerusalem" also contains a lot of photos.  Jason was able to get involved in the World Cup and watched the Spain vs. Germany match on the roof of a restaurant in Amman. The Conversation Corps exists now in 16 countries, including Conversation Corps-Jordan.  Even if you don't plan to go to Jordan, Jason's Blog will give you some great motivation to make the most of your program and will encourage you to make friends outside your host family and to travel as far as you can.  And if you plan to join the Corps in Jordan...Jason's Blog is a great model of everything The Conversation Corps can be.
