Language is not only a means of communication, but it represents the very fabric of cultural expression, the carrier of identity, values and worldviews. Aware of the critical role that language learning has in fostering cross-cultural understanding among divided groups, Givat Haviva offers language courses that empower individuals and enable them to interact with other communities within Israeli society.
Building on over 50 years of experience as a leader in Arabic language study in Israel, Givat Haviva operates a Language Unit on its campus. This Unit adopts an experiential approach to language study -- exposing its students to different societies through face-to-face encounters in communities and facilitating learning through cultural mediums: movies, songs, holidays, religious texts, poetry, literature, current events, sports and more. A range of courses are offered for both students and adults, as well as learning events for language instructors and administrators.
