Hebrew Ulpan at TAU

Intensive Hebrew language courses (Ulpan) are open to students and also to professionals and community members. Hebrew Ulpans are offered as a complement to a longer degree or study abroad program at TAU, or they can be taken as a stand-alone opportunity (not connected to any TAU program or degree). In the case of students enrolled in an study abroad undergraduate semester or year-long study abroad program at TAU International, the first semester is preceded by a mandatory Ulpan for students with Hebrew levels 1-7. Students at Level 8 or above are exempt from mandatory Ulpan. Outside of this, Ulpan is also open for individuals (professionals, other students, adult learners, community members, etc.) who just want to come for the Summer or Winter sessions and learn Hebrew with us. Our Ulpan offers students the incredible opportunity to further develop their Hebrew language skills and prepare them for “chaim” in Israel!
