It is very close to the dormitory and there is a supermarket nearby, so it is not difficult to find it, and wherever you go, you easily take bus or taxi. Also important streets like downtown & rainbow is near.
Disliked
Overall, I'm satisfied, but teachers were changed way too much therefore the teaching quality was not consistent and vary depending on the teachers. Because of this, it seems unprofessional.

Teachers are very friendly, and the coordinators in the office are always available for questions and suggestions.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss Plan more days for things like Petra, Wadi Rum or Wadi Dana. Possibly organize it yourself. Jett drives to pretty much everything, including the border to Palestine/Israel (11 JOD to King Hussein Bridge and then by separate shuttle which costs 17 JOD per person including 1 luggage, 10 JOD when leaving the country!). You can eat pretty well almost everywhere in Amman. On weekdays you can have a relatively good and cheap lunch at school.
