(Course level openings dependent on registration)

 

Students interested in learning Modern Standard Arabic are welcome to enroll in the semester course of the International School. During the academic semesters (September – January and February – June), Modern Standard Arabic classes meet three days per week for two hours each morning. Instruction is offered at the beginning through advanced levels. Admission is conditional upon completing an online placement test to make sure the appropriate level is offered. 

As the Modern Standard Arabic classes are relatively small, each student receives a great deal of personal attention and has many opportunities to interact with fellow students and with the instructor. As an integral part of their language studies, all classes have a  weekly two hour conversational Arabic component.

Why Haifa?

I decided to come and study at the University of Haifa because it seemed like a fantastic opportunity to immerse myself in a completely new culture as well as to see the State of Israel, something of importance to me because of my Judaism. 

Favorite Arabic Word?

Yallah

      What do you like most about Haifa?

What I like most about Haifa are the beautiful views from the top of the carmel, you get to see the sea, and the entire city below.  Its especially beautiful at night atop the main building. I also really like being surrounded by different cultures, and being able to interact with Arabs and Druze.
