ULPAN at University of Haifa

Taking the Winter ULPAN at the University of Haifa was easily the best decision I made for the semester. Being able to learn the language for an entire month without the distractions of other classes was super beneficial, and for some reason the professors who teach the courses teach the course in a way where you learn what you need to survive in Israel, unlike many language courses I’ve taken. Additionally, the professors and administrators are always available for help and really try to get you to learn the language as quickly as possible. I’m not sure if my experience in Israel would have been the same if I didn’t learn Hebrew through ULPAN. Overall, I would highly recommend taking the ULPAN at the University of Haifa. Great value and very effective!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Having to learn an entirely new alphabet in both the written and script forms. Once you get the hang of it though it is very simple!

Hebrew Ulpan

The Hebrew Ulpan is intensive in both time & content covered, but is worth it in the end.
The course was fast-paced, but was easy to keep up with if one dedicates the time and effort to do so. The professors had high expectations for students, but were very patient and willing to slow down to explain something, or stay after class to provide extra help. The class sizes were small (no more than 15 students,) so it was easy to build relationships with professors and get the help and practice necessary to confidently build Hebrew skills.
The social activities and tours of different sites across Israel were an excellent addition to the program, providing opportunities to have fun and easily get out and see different parts of Israel with an organized tour, and sometime practice Hebrew. During the Ulpan, we were able to travel to places such as Tel Aviv, Nazareth & the Galilee, Akko, and others. They were fun outings that allowed us to also see and understand Israel more.
By the end of the Hebrew Ulpan program, I was able to use Hebrew to conduct basic conversations and tasks in Hebrew, and understand what was going on when venturing around Israel.
