Intensive Arabic Semester

Program Description

Want to learn Arabic in a dynamic, immersive environment? The Intensive Arabic Semester offers you the opportunity to learn spoken Arabic on a highly professional level while immersing yourself in the local Jewish and Arab culture. In conjunction with learning the language, you will also explore a wide selection of fascinating courses in various topics relating to Jewish and Middle Eastern studies.
While the program is based on a Kibbutz in northwest Israel, you will have an Arab host family and through regular visits to the local Arab community, will learn about Arab culture and language. Nowhere else in Israel can students learn Arabic in an intense setting and obtain a comprehensive understanding of modern Israel.
The program is for anyone 18 and older and from any background or religion.
