Keeping up with the news in Jordan

Hello everyone,

Living in Jordan provides countless occasions to browse local newspapers, listen to local radio stations or watch local TV shows. As everywhere else in the world, local media play a key role in informing the public.

What are the major media in Jordan? Which one do you use on a regular basis?

How do you keep up with international issues (newspapers, radio, TV, Internet)?

Thank you in advance!

i keep up on news through the internet some times i read the jordan times

Radio... in the car

I hardly listen to the radio or watch tv so from the local news gathering perspective I listen to the radio while I am driving and sometimes I catch the news.
But I found it very ignoring how they read the news with sometimes a very heavy Arabic accent. When I have time i read the online version of the newspaper Jordan Times.

What i do every day is to follow the news from my home country to read the online newspaper. Just to stay in touch and to know the opinion of my countrymen about some issues.

what you heard in the Radio especially the news, is not an accent or dialect... it is the Fusha language, which means  Modern Standard Arabic...

it is better to learn this, than other dialects or accents, if someone want to learn Arabic.

Nope,  they speak English with a heavy accent.  :)

I know the difference between Fusha and colloquial or Amiyah.
