Study classical Syriac, Biblical Hebrew, or Koine Greek in with Polis - The Jerusalem Institute of Languages and Humanities! The institute was established by a group of academics with the shared goal of promoting the learning of ancient and Semitic languages. The founders believe that the best way to understand an ancient or modern text or culture is to become immersed in the language, through listening, speaking, writing, and reading. The Polis Method, which is applied in all language courses, is made up of pedagogical methodologies that mimic the ways in which children are taught their mother tongue.
Using methods such as Total Physical Response and Storytelling, students are constantly involved in the learning process, and are completely immersed in the target language from the first day. This method allows for ancient languages to come alive and be used as a living language. It also creates an environment where students from all over the world can study together and communicate with one another. Students at Polis find a welcoming, warm environment, where they can learn a new language and improve their skills while learning about the cultures and people of Jerusalem and meet people from all over the world.
