Ulpan FAQs

How Do I Know Which Level I'm in?

You will be placed according to the results of your Hebrew placement exam which you will receive following your registration.

What if I’m Placed in the Wrong Level?

If a student feels they have not been placed in the appropriate level, they may switch classes after the start of the semester in coordination with CY faculty.

Do I Need a Textbook?

All classes, except for the most advanced level, use a digital textbook published by Magnes Press which must be purchased separately by each student. The cost of the textbook ranges from $25–30.

How Many Hours of Instruction is Ulpan?

Each ulpan semester is 10 weeks. For classes that meet twice a week for 2.5 hours there are 50 total hours of instructions. Classes that meet once a week have 25 hours of instruction.

Having been a student for years, I had great expectations which I hoped would be met. To my delight, every one of my expectations were exceeded. I can really feel that my Hebrew reading ability and speaking ability have made a great leap!
