All of our classes are small and cozy. Students sit around one table, in a lesson which is more of a continuous dialogue between the teacher and the students. Most of the elements inside the Ulpan are labelled with the name in Hebrew – a nice idea to try at home!

We divide our students into six levels (A1 – C2) following the European standard. It takes two to three courses to complete a level.
A1.1 (Aleph): The breakthrough level. Learning the alphabet, cursive and block letters, the present tense, basic conversational skills, building verbal and nominal sentences as well as useful questions.
A1.2 (Aleph+): Expansion of the skills acquired in Aleph – adding the infinitive and learning all verb categories in the present tense. In addition we learn the basics of the past tense and start reading more complex texts.
A1.3 (Aleph++): We continue with the past tense in all verb categories, add more advanced sentence structures, modals verbs and learn how to conjugate prepositions correctly.
A2.1 (Bet): Learning the future tense, expanding the knowledge on prepositions, learning the gerund and adding complex sentence connectors – causal, time, consequential.
A2.2 (Bet+): Introduction to passive sentences, reading more complex texts and learning noun conjugation, nominal verb forms and conditional sentences. By the end of this levels the students are familiar with most of the structures of the language, and can advance to the Intermediate level.
B1.1 (Gimmel): Gimmel is for people who know the basics of the language, but are having hard time expressing themselves. The mission in this level is to become a real Hebrew speaker: accurately express yourself, take part in conversations, extract the main idea from texts and have the confidence to communicate in Hebrew.
B1.2 (Gimmel+): Gimmel+ is for people who know how to speak, but need to make their communication more accurate and at a higher register. The mission is to be able to accurately express your dreams and opinions, take part in complex conversations, extract the main idea from a journalistic text and start reading the paper, and have the confidence to work in a Hebrew-requiring environment.
B1.3 (Gimmel++): Gimmel++ focuses on the more complex tasks asked by an intermediate student such as reading the newspaper, listening to podcasts and being able to express one’s mind fluently and using phrases and complex structures. In this level we are also finishing the main view of the verb system, and have the ability to use most verbs in both active and passive forms in the three tenses.
B2 (Dalet): Diving into academic language, focusing on formal writing and reading high-level texts such as hard news articles, popular science, etc. Students will also learn how to present arguments and opinions in an sophisticated manner. By the end of Dalet, students are eligible to sign up to universities, can speak spontaneously with native speakers without strain.

“To learn Hebrew in Ulpan Bayit was my best choice this summer! The team is amazing, the classes are well-organized and it’s so much fun to learn with those great people who are definitly more than just teachers!
The location is lovely and it’s always a nice atmosphere during the lesson.
I am really grateful about how much I have learned and improved my language skills within this month!
“Ulpan Bayit was one of the best language learning experiences I’ve had. It’s hard to overstate how much I learned and how much fun the learning experience was. Yaron and his crew are are a bunch of very fun, very talented Hebrew teachers, not to mention very friendly people. If you’re planning on being in Tel Aviv for an extended period of time — regardless of your Hebrew level — you should check out some classes, because you will learn a lot very quickly.”
“I learned the whole aleph bet in less than 3 weeks with zero knowledge prior to this class! At first it’s challenging but giving up is never an option. Once you see it all the way through, you will get results with your Hebrew. I am looking forward to continuing learning Hebrew here and I encourage everyone to learn Hebrew in this institute because of it’s fast paced and wondrous teachers.”
“Ulpan Bayit is an amazing place to study Hebrew. Yaron’s teaching style is fast-paced, interactive, fun, and most of all, I’m learning so much SO quickly. Having studied for 6 weeks at Ulpan Gordon, I can say that you can’t even compare”
“Atmosphere is perfect.
Teachers are not only good, but also very interesting, funny, patient and very nice people.
They make everyone participate no matter which level, and I can tell that my Hebrew level has skyrocketed after two months studying there.”
