Welcome to Flyertalk, Amoola I am going to move your query to the Germany Forum. There are many people with experience transiting through Frankfurt.
Good Luck

Welcome to Flyertalk, Amoola.

We try to help you, but may I ask, where your transit it?

I read you post, as if you fly Amman - Frankfurt (nonstop) and fly back instead from Franfkurt from Paris to Amman (nonstop). In this case, if would not be a transit but you are arriving in Frankfurt.

If you fly Amman - Frankfurt - Paris and Paris - Amman - Frankfurt, could you please tell us on which airline(s) and at which time you arrive? It this all on one ticket or have you booked two separate tickets, e.g. one ticket Amman to Frankfurt and return and a separate ticket from Frankfurt to elsewhere?

Thank you

You will receive all boarding passes in Paris, and if your flight is not heavily delayed out of Paris you won't have any trouble making your connection. As soon as you arrive in Frankfurt find a screen with the gate information for your onward flight and follow the signs to the correct letter. Frankfurt airport is big but it's not hard to navigate.

Since France and Germany are both in the Schengen zone there is no immigration between Paris and Frankfurt. Once you get to Frankfurt you will be leaving from a different set of gates that are known as non-Schengen. You will have passport control in Frankfurt as you are leaving the Schengen zone.
I like FRA airport. It is big and messy but lots of shops and fun places. You need to walk a lot between areas so make sure you have enough time.
When you check in for your flight in Paris make sure you get both boarding passes and also make sure your luggage is checked through to Amman

Most likely scenario is that your incoming flight from Paris will arrive T1A and your Amman flight will leave T1B.

It can be a bit of a walk depending on which gate you dock at/depart from.

The Golden Rule at FRA is "follow the signs" - as you emerge from the airbridge from your Paris flight, there should even be an indicator on the screen up above you telling you which way to turn and which number gate to go to.

There is also a Guide to connecting at FRA thread on the Lufthansa forum which you might find useful to refer to.

Is the flight FRA-CDG-AMM on one ticket?
