Intensive Arabic Program in Israel
Givat Haviva has been the leading institute for Arabic learning in Israel for over 60 years. As an institute whose overriding goal is to promote equality and acceptance for all ethnicities, nationalities and religions, Givat Haviva understands that language is often the main barrier between people and cultures. In recognition of this reality, we established the Intensive Arabic Semester - an intensive language and cultural immersion program in which our students learn over 500 hour of spoken Arabic over a five month period as well as volunteer on a regular basis in Arab communities. In addition, our students take part in courses on that deal with Middle East, minority issues and Israel's history and role in the Near East and on the international stage.
Our next semester begins July 14, 2010 and ends on December 15, 2010 while the Winter program starts on January 15 and ends on the 15th of June.
We are now entering the third year of our Intensive Arabic Semester and would be happy to have your students involved in our efforts at peace building through language learning.
