The Hebrew Ulpan was a fun and exciting time for me. I had an excellent teacher and a small class with several interesting people in it. I liked that there were several adults (not college-age students) in my class. A student - University of California - Riverside View Entire Review
You’ll benefit from the advanced methods of our highly professional and experienced teaching faculty of the Division of Hebrew Language Instruction. The focus is on helping you internalize the language and improve your practical usage. In class, you’ll practice the four skills that underpin language competency – reading, writing, speaking, and listening – in a communicative way. The Rothberg International School (RIS) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem offers intensive Modern Hebrew language courses (ulpanim) during the summer and winter as well as semester-long Hebrew language courses during the academic year. We also run a center for training teachers of Hebrew as a second language.
Programs of Study
Summer Ulpan - All summer Hebrew language programs at RIS offer daily classroom instruction, in which the four skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening are practiced in a communicative attitude. Classroom instruction is reinforced with guest lectures, field trips, and cultural activities. Hebrew studies are available on six levels, ranging from elementary (Aleph) to upper-advanced (Vav). Courses are designed primarily for students enrolled in academic programs at the Hebrew University, but are also open to students who wish to learn only Hebrew (OHS), with appropriate academic background.
