What Is An Ulpan?
Hebrew is taught throughout the city in schools called ulpans (which literally means "studio").
We believe that learning Hebrew in an ulpan is a critical component of the absorption process.
The language skills acquired at ulpan are beneficial throughout every phase of absorption - including finding a place to live, looking for employment, advancing in you career and building relationships with local Israelis. In addition, ulpan courses often discuss Israeli society, politics, and culture, and thus familiarize participants with various Israeli institutions, authorities and agencies.
Lastly, often, your fellow classmates in ulpan often become your life-long friends.
