Hebrew / Ulpan

Students come to Pardes with a wide range of Hebrew skills—from the most basic to very advanced and fluent. Most students find that a basic grounding in Hebrew is all that is needed to begin studying at Pardes, though stronger Hebrew provides a distinct advantage.

A summer ulpan (Hebrew course) is required for beginner and intermediate students to improve their Hebrew. Most students come to Israel and begin ulpan in July or August.

Pardes students over the years have taken advantage of the following resources to improve their Hebrew before arriving at Pardes or during their time at Pardes.*
