Learning at Ulpan Or has been one of the highlights of my month-long trip to Israel. I felt my Hebrew improving on a daily basis. Rachel B. Massachusetts, USA
Rachel B. from Massachusetts, USA, did a 2 weeks Mini Israel course in Jerusalem. Here’s what she had to say about her experience: ” Learning at Ulpan Or has been one of the highlights of my month-long trip to Israel. I have been wanting to learn Hebrew for quite some time and am so excited that I finally had the opportunity to do so. I felt my Hebrew improving on a daily basis, especially at the hospital (I have been working at Hadassah Har Hatzofim in the mornings) and when talking to friends/family who speak only or mostly Hebrew. I feel that I now have a strong base in Hebrew to return to the US and to continue studying and practicing. The learning method was very different from how I have learned languages in the past. While those methods were much more grammatically focused, Ulpan Or really focused on conversation, which is what I need most. It was very practical, and I was surprised by how much faster I learned by listening and speaking as opposed to reading and writing. Ulpan Or’s method also encouraged me to just speak and not to worry about making mistakes, which I think was most helpful in improving my conversational skills.
Finally, everyone at Ulpan Or has been incredibly generous, welcoming, and kind. I looked forward to seeing everyone in the office each day. Thank you for everything!!!”
