Ivrit min HaHatchala (Hebrew from Scratch) is a program developed and taught at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem which is designed for teaching for communicational purposes (Ulpan). The program introduces useful vocabulary, topics and syntax in a gradual sequence which enables the learners to build and expand on their acquired knowledge. Students learn to read and communicate in different contexts. It is an interactive program and uses a variety of methods both for teaching and learning. No prior knowledge is required.
