img_0221For the first time, BLC is excited to offer 8 consecutive weeks of biblical Hebrew–BOTH beginning and intermediate Biblical Hebrew classes at Jerusalem Hills Inn in Abu Ghosh, Israel this summer 2017.  Come join us for 4 or 8 weeks of Hebrew fun!

“My four weeks in your ulpan was the highlight of my summer.  I wish I could have done that for the entire three months I was in Israel.  I actually got a comment from one of my Hebrew professors yesterday that I’m reading Hebrew like I just got back from Israel.”Shawn F.

For beginning students:  The classes are designed specifically for students with little or no background in Biblical Hebrew.

For advanced students and instructors:  Though these are beginning level courses, more advanced students as well as professors who have taken them in the past have found them to be a most effective way to develop the oral fluency necessary for implementing the latest pedagogies in second language acquisition.  Additionally, they report that seeing the pedagogies in action was most valuable for learning how to implement communicative language instruction in their own classrooms.  We encourage anyone with such goals to register for these summer courses.

“After spending the summer in Israel in the intensive Biblical Ulpan, I came back to the States to begin a biblical languages based exegesis graduate program at Wheaton College.  Although I had only had 6 weeks of Hebrew in my life, I thought I would try the Hebrew proficiency exam ‘just for fun,’ and to see how well my studies there had lined up with other students here.  I tested out of the first full year of Hebrew!  My roommate, who studied 3 years of biblical Hebrew at an American Bible school, is amazed at how much vocabulary I know and can use easily in various situations–she is now using my Living Biblical Hebrew CDs and textbook to see if she can catch up!  The more I sit in Hebrew class here, the more thankful I am that I received such a strong foundation internalizing the language in Israel.”
