About the Program

Each undergraduate semester or year-long program at TAU International is preceded by a mandatory intensive Hebrew course called an Ulpan. The Ulpan offers students the opportunity to develop their Hebrew language skills and prepares them for life in Israel.

 

There are several options for the Ulpan:

  • summer Ulpan, taught over seven weeks from late July (6 credits)

  • a shorter summer Ulpan, taught over four weeks from late July (4 credits)

  • winter Ulpan, taught over four weeks prior to the spring semester (4 credits)

 

Please check the academic calendar for exact dates.

 

Students who are continuing with the semester program may take additional Hebrew courses. These are taught at different levels, as described below.

Hebrew Studies Courses

The Hebrew studies curriculum is designed to teach language skills and also focus on themes related to Israeli life, such as geography, the environment, history, and current cultural events. We believe that students of this program come to Israel with the expectation of acquiring the language in its cultural, historical, and contemporary context.

 

The program also includes trips to places of special interest, guided viewing of Israeli films, exposure to Hebrew literature, and a focus on Israeli arts, theater, music, and dance.

 

The curriculum can be studied at 11 levels.

  • Beginner's level: This is taught as an intensive course only. The other levels are offered as both intensive and semester-long courses.

  • Basic levels: Levels 1, 2, and 3 are taught as intensive courses or semester courses of 8 hours per week

  • Intermediate levels: Levels 4, 5, and 6 are taught as intensive courses or semester courses of 8 hours per week

  • Higher levels: Levels 6 and 7 are taught as intensive courses or semester courses of 6 hours per week

  • Advanced levels: Levels 8, 9, and 10-11 are taught as intensive courses or semester courses of 6 hours per week
