Polis The Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities was established by several academics who shared the vision of promoting the learning of ancient and Semitic languages. For the founders of the institute,the best way to understand an ancient or modern text or culture is to become immersed in the language, through listening, speaking, writing, and reading. The institute applies The Polis Method, which is made up of pedagogical methodologies that copy the way a person's mother tongue is learned, in all its language courses.
