The International School is happy offers all our students both Hebrew and Arabic Language Study options, which can either be made the central course of study as with our Intensive Summer and Winter programs, or as an accompaniment to the student’s main studies during semester time.


Hebrew Ulpan


The Intensive Hebrew Summer and Winter Ulpan brings students from over 40 countries to the University of Haifa to study Hebrew in one of the most effective language learning programs in Israel.

The Ulpan is designed for those who want to immerse themselves in an intensive language acquisition experience that is personally enriching as well as academically demanding. Instruction is offered on all levels from beginners to advanced.

There is also the option for all students to engage in semester-long Hebrew language instruction in addition to their core studies.
