All our language courses are taught using The Polis Method, where students interact with their teachers only in the target language. This is in order to create an environment where students learn the most with their peers and get the best understanding of the language. Polis also offers online courses for students who cannot come to our campus in Jerusalem.
There are two academic semesters at Polis's campus in Jerusalem throughout the year - Fall and Spring. Language Courses are offered over a full semester basis and allow students to advance one level over four months. Polis also has summer intensive courses which allow a student to learn a whole level over a shorter period. For lengthier language programs geared towards profoundly mastering a language, see Fluency Programs.
Note about hybrid courses:
- A hybrid course means that some students will be attending in-person while others online. You can choose the in-person or the online modality when registering. We highly recommend the in-person modality when possible.
- Once the courses starts, it is not possible to switch from one modality to the other (from in-person to online or from online to in-person). If a student needs to switch modalities for reasons beyond his or her control, the student can contact the office to request for approval to change modality.
