What If I Already Know Some Hebrew?

During the Ulpan classes, participants will be split into groups according to their level of Hebrew knowledge. Prior to the start of the program, our Ulpan teachers will send each participant a diagnostic test, which they use to place each person in the appropriate level so that everyone should feel that he or she is being challenged in Hebrew class.

In some cases, a participant may speak Hebrew well enough to not require Ulpan at all. This should not discourage anyone from signing up for the program! The Tikkun Olam staff and Ulpan teachers will make decisions on a case-by-case basis to ensure that all participants are using their time wisely. In some cases, this may mean that a participant will be exempt from Ulpan, but only if that participant exhibits a very advanced level of Hebrew fluency. If you think this might apply to you, please ***contact us*** for more information.
