Online Courses

The Polis Institute began offering online courses in March 2020, after our spring semester was interrupted by the situation regarding the coronavirus and we needed to move all our classes online.

While this was challenging for us, Polis successfully moved all our 70 Spring semester classes online – both language courses, and theoretical courses from our Academic Programs - and Polis teachers have since gained thousands of hours of online teaching experience. The academic staff at Polis have adapted The Polis Method to an online format and students have reported their satisfaction at the online classes.

The knowledge we gained in transferring our spring semester online has given us confidence in our ability going forward. In April 2020, Polis launched our first dedicated online classes in Latin and Ancient Greek and we have so far seen how students are steadily acquiring the language through these classes. Our summer intensive semester and September intensive courses in Ancient Greek, Latin, Biblical Hebrew, Spoken Arabic, MSA and Modern Hebrew were also run online.

In the Fall semester we will be offering all these languages plus Coptic and Classical Syriac and in addition opening theoretical courses to the general public for the first time. You can register for the fall courses here.

All classes will be taught through The Polis Method - which you can read more about here - following our Total Immersion and Dynamic Language Development principles. In our Fall courses, language classes will be held two times per week and students will have the ability to advance an entire level - around 80 Academic Hours - in their chosen language over the course of the four months.
