Kibbutz Ulpan is a 5-month multi-level language program.
meeting amazing people from all over the world and having a unique experience of becoming part of a rural Israeli community, living and working alongside locals on a kibbutz.
The goal of the Kibbutz Ulpan program is to provide participants with a working knowledge of conversational Hebrew, the ability to read simplified texts and newspapers, as well as build a foundation for further study of five months.
The Kibbutz Ulpan program is recognized by the Ministry of Education of the State of Israel (Adult Education Department) and participants will receive an official certificate after completing the course.
Each Kibbutz Ulpan has its director and staff, who are at all times responsible for the participants, their behavior, and general well-being. Ulpan teachers are licensed by the Ministry of Education (one of our partners), and trained in teaching Hebrew as a second language to adults.
Classes generally consist of 20-25 students and meet for a total of 18 to 24 academic hours (1 academic hour = 45 minutes) a week. Most Ulpan teaches the first two levels of Hebrew, while some also offer more advanced levels (up to FOUR!). The Kibbutz Ulpan program includes lectures on Israel and Judaism and one-day seminars on current Israeli and Jewish events.
Guided tours and hikes to historic and scenic sites that happen once a month are also included in the program.
Another aspect that makes the Kibbutz Ulpan Program unique is that the participants belong to two distinct groups – tourists who come temporarily, and young Olim Chadashim (new immigrants), who are at the beginning of their journey to make Israel their new homeland. The participants are regarded as one group by the Ulpan staff and are treated equally. The Kibbutz Ulpan program has been running like this successfully over the years, giving the participants wonderful opportunities to make friends from all over the world.
