The curriculum enables students to converse fluently about various topics using:

  1. Authentic Israeli dialogues
  2. All verb buildings of past, present, future and prepositions
  3. Israeli songs
  4. E-Tone news articles and virtual tours

The Goal:

To lead the student to the following achievements:

  1. Learn past, present, future tense in all 5 binyanim (verb buildings), while acquiring a deeper understanding of prepositions and their conjugations.
  2. Acquire the ability to converse freely and accurately in Hebrew about various everyday topics to get along in everyday life in Israel.
  3. Experience authentic Israeli culture through spoken Hebrew and encountering different people and situations in Israel.

The curriculum is divided into 10 units per level which build the different skills (listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing) layer by layer.  Intermediate levels are followed by the advanced levels.

Classes will be held on Zoom.  Because the Ulpan Or curriculum is an all inclusive Hebrew conversation program designed for independent or classroom study, students are able to prepare in advance for classes and in class the instructor will act as a coach.  For example, students will receive their assignments a week in advance, and will study the dialogue and vocabulary using the videos, flashcards and textbook exercises for the week daily.  By class time, the instructor will guide students in a fun and relaxed way in how to use the vocabulary in conversation.  Students will practice their dialogues with partners and will also play games, activities and sing songs in Hebrew.  Students will have time to prepare for conversation and activities a week ahead of time.  Each lesson introduces small chunks of new vocabulary and builds upon vocabulary learned in previous lessons.
