Program description

Hebrew Language Semester Program

The Hebrew language semester program, also known as the Semester Ulpan, is designed for those who want to immerse themselves in a language acquisition experience that is personally enriching as well as academically demanding. Instruction is offered at all levels from beginners with no knowledge of the language to advanced classes.The program focuses on strengthening all four major skills: writing, reading, speaking and comprehension. Students who only want to enroll in the semester Ulpan of the International School are considered part-time students (please note that part-time students are not eligible to live in campus housing, nor may they participate in trips and tours). During the academic semesters (September–January and February–June) Hebrew classes meet four days per week, Mondays through Thursdays, for two hours each morning. This program is open to students of the International School, tourists, new and 'old' immigrants, who want to improve their Hebrew skills.
