Culture is embedded within and transferred through language, and at IAA, language is extremely important. IAA offers an international education within a Jordanian context, and as such the Arabic language is central to the IAA experience. While the primary language medium used at IAA is English, Arabic is strongly integrated throughout the curriculum from Pre-K to Grade 12. It pervades the curriculum in many ways, including through Religious Studies, the Social Sciences, Athletics and the Arts. The impressive IAA Libraries also promote and preserve both Arabic and English as integral components of IAA culture, while simultaneously housing a vast collection of books in other languages, including Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, Chinese, Mandarin and more. Spanish is also formally offered as a third language as part of the Secondary School language curriculum. The study of language, then, is part and parcel of IAA"s commitment to its Pillars of Acceptance and Pride in its rich Cultural Heritage.
