Combine a proven curriculum with a pure language environment.
The immersion program is for beginner to advanced students who want to improve language proficiency as rapidly as possible.
Students have the option to study 7-weeks on-campus (9-credits) or 6-weeks online (6-credits).
All courses provide proficiency-oriented instruction in listening, reading, speaking, writing, and grammar. Students engage in activities that enhance presentational, interpretive, and interpersonal modes of oral and written communication.
Students are enrolled in one of seven levels according to their proficiency as determined by a placement test and prior experience with Hebrew. If you wish to take an additional course in Classical Hebrew, you need to have attained at least the Intermediate Mid level as defined by the ACTFL proficiency guidelines.
