Ulpan and other Hebrew learning options for Olim and individuals currently overseas can be found at: www.nbnbusiness.co.il (Please see the category called “Hebrew Education.”) For a further listing of online resources for Hebrew study, please see: http://www.hebrew-language.com Taking an Ulpan class and improving your Hebrew skills, both before and after making Aliyah, improves your marketability in the Israeli workplace and helps you integrate more successfully into Israeli society. Whether you have fairly good Hebrew or are just beginning the learning process, there are things you can start to do even if you are several years away from your target Aliyah date. This listing offers you several options for studying Hebrew, either in an Ulpan or in another learning format - for adults and children - both before and after you arrive in Israel.
If you cannot fit an Ulpan into your weekly schedule, or if there are no Ulpan courses in your area, there are many e-learning options that you can use at home. These programs offer you the opportunity to tailor your Hebrew language education to your schedule as well as your personal educational needs. If you’re just starting the process - don’t be overwhelmed! Learning Hebrew online is no different than sitting in a classroom to learn any other subject. This time the classroom happens to be virtual, making it easier for you to fit it into your schedule. The course that you are going to design for yourself progresses just like any other course; you are not expected to learn the whole syllabus on the first day. Take it slow, and remember - persistence is key!
