Ulpan Beit Ha'am is the biggest and oldest Ulpan in Jerusalem.
The Ulpan offers a range of levels for learning Hebrew, from beginners level to Vav level. It also offers several study options: 5 days a week, 3 days a week and 2 days a week.
Classes are held from 08:30 to 13:00
The Ulpan staff give individual attention to every student and try to ease their absorption in Israel, both socially and culturally. The overriding purpose of the Ulpan is, naturally, to help new immigrants learn Hebrew, but at the same time, also to help their absorption in Israel and to make life easier.
The Ulpan provides general information about Israeli society and an introduction to the realities of life in Israel in order to ease the hardships of absorption and facilitate integration in everyday life in the city:
• During the Ulpan, students are taken on field trips and excursions to get to know the city and the country.
• Students learn to listen to the news in Hebrew and to read Hebrew newspapers (each according to their level).
• The Ulpan also offers integration in employment workshops and to compose resumes (curriculum vitae)
• Professional representatives of the Municipal Absorption Authority and of the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption visit the Ulpan periodically.
New immigrants from all over the Diaspora study in the same classes, creating a mix of cultures and the opportunity to converse in Hebrew and to get to know other Olim.
The Ulpan is connected to an on-line learning system supervised by the Ministry of Education.
