Interested in living and studying Hebrew in Jerusalem? Ulpan Etzion will give you the best of both.

Ulpan Etzion Jerusalem is Israel's flagship intensive Hebrew learning program and has served as the model for all ulpanim catering to new immigrants.
Ulpan Etzion is located at the Beit Canada Absorption Center in the quiet, residential neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv. From Beit Canada it is a 20-30 minute bus ride to the city center, universities, and entertainment venues. Within walking distance are a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, health clinic, community center, and banks. Also nearby is the famous Haas Promenade with a panoramic view of Jerusalem's Old City.
Designed specifically for young immigrants who hold college degrees, this program provides a solid academic Hebrew foundation for those who wish to further their studies in Israel. If this is your intention, ask your shaliach about your eligibility for TAKA or other Ministry of Absorption programs.
