The Hebrew University Winter Ulpan was an excellent and highly enjoyable experience. The intensive month-long program provided me with the opportunity to rapidly improve my Hebrew skills. The lessons were varied, utilising a variety of different teaching methods including lecturers and campus tours conducted in Hebrew. While the lessons were challenging and the pace is rapid, the workload is manageable. The opportunity to live in Jerusalem for a short period of time was an added bonus. The markets, cafes, buses, shops and streets of Jerusalem were a fantastic second classroom!
