From New York to Timbuktu, you can study Hebrew easily through a personalized method tailored to your preferences and your individual learning-style.
The age of 60 and beyond in Hebrew is referred as “The Golden Age” – גיל הזהב
We, at Ulpan-Or recognize that this age can be very creative, productive and entertaining, especially when one learns languages.
Experts say, one is never too old to learn a new language, especially now with all the advanced technology easily available.
In fact, many seniors have mastered new technology during the coronavirus pandemic. They now enjoy the benefits of online learning and communicating.
Seniors, who learn a new language have even an advantage over younger people.
Because seniors are equipped with larger vocabularies, they can learn more words that are included in the arsenal of a native speaker.
Through video conferencing, study materials, and private communications, you can learn Hebrew online from a computer or telephone in your home, office or on the road with your own personal, native-Israeli coach.
The Golden Hebrew program was designed to allow students to take Hebrew-speaking lessons wherever they might be while maintaining their regular activities in place.
One, three, six and twelve month programs are available now.

According to researchers at Edinburgh University, learning an additional language is beneficial to brain health.
After examining medical records of 648 patients with Alzheimer’s disease in Hyderabad, the researchers found that monolingual patients developed dementia earlier than those who spoke two languages.
York University and the American Academy of Neurology also conducted their own studies about bilingualism and dementia. Both institutions found that switching from one language to the other activates areas of the brain responsible for executive functioning.
According to the studies, utilizing this part of the brain often can decrease cognitive decline and can delay the initial effects of dementia.
Neurons developing through language learning
Even for multilingual individuals, learning a new language when you reach the age of 50 is a good way to improve brain health.
Learning another language does not only help in keeping your brain active, it can also increase your social interactions.
A new language can open a whole new world for seniors because they get to learn about a new culture at the same time.
If you think you’re already too old to learn something new, it’s time to prove yourself wrong.
Start learning Hebrew today and take the advantage of getting its long-term benefits.
