Another country, another language

Well here we are again living in another country and faced with the challenges of learning another language.  Although English is widely spoken here in Israel, I always think it is important to make the effort to learn some useful phrases and once fully settled into the country to think about starting formal language lessons.  

Hebrew is taught in language centers/schools known as "Ulpan".   As well as catering for new immigrants to Israel, the Ulpan also caters for tourists and expatriates.

Here is a list of some of the Ulpanim in Tel Aviv:

An ulpan is an institute or school for the intensive study of Hebrew. Ulpan (אולפן, plural ulpanim - 'אולפנים) is a Hebrew word meaning "studio", "teaching", or "instruction".  The ulpan is designed to teach adult immigrants to Israel the basic language skills of conversation, writing and comprehension. Most ulpanim also provide instruction in the fundamentals of Israeli culture, history, and geography. The primary purpose of the ulpan is to help new citizens to be integrated as quickly and as easily as possible into the social, cultural and economic life of their new country.
