The number of academic hours in each course depends on the level of instruction and framework of study. Students are placed into the appropriate class on the basis of their Hebrew level and academic background. Courses are held in a number of frameworks, mainly regular degree studies and Rothberg International School programs.

  • Each semester extends over 11 weeks.
  • Instruction is available on levels Aleph, Bet, Gimel and Dalet (Beginners – Lower Advanced ).
  • Classes meet 8 hours per week.
  • Two extra weekly hours of oral practice are offered to levels Aleph and Bet (subject to a minimum number of registered students)

Most Hebrew courses at the Rothberg International School are open to External Students who meet the relevant admission requirements. To determine eligibility, please send us an email.
