What ulpan level?

Approximately which ulpan level will I be at once I finish the tree?

I don't know why people have downvoted you.

It is difficult to say what level you will be at. It's possible to go through the whole course and not have retained very much, or you could have studied it and mastered all the material and supplemented it. "Finishing the tree" is too amorphous a standard to say you've got to a certain level.

That's a really good question. I have no frame of reference as I started learning Hebrew well outside of Duolingo, and am only using it for filling in vocab and some sentence usage reinforcement.

It's all too easy to storm through a course without really taking anything in.

I'm currently on Hebrew Level 16, but am just over halfway down the tree because I keep going back to re-do recently completed modules. I think this is especially vital when I encounter a new tense for the first time - I pretty much have to concentrate on that one element till it begins to sink in.

As for your Ulpan level, I'm sure you'll find out in time :)

I am currently in Israel doing ulpan for two months. I had completed about 25% of the tree over a period of three months and had just reached level 13 on Duolingo when I arrived here. At that point, I was not a true beginner (I knew the letters and had already learned several hundred vocab words through Duolingo), but I was not yet ready for keitah bet.

I have now been here for two weeks and am about 30-35% of the way through the tree. I am still in keitah aleph, but I expect to move up to keitah bet in the next week or two. There is no question that being here in Israel in an immersion environment allows you to advance much more quickly in your language skills (not to mention that I am also retaining more from the Duolingo lessons since sometimes now I have already learned some of the words or grammar in class before I see them on Duolingo).

It also goes without saying that you get out of your lessons what you put into them. If you are a person who won't try to speak Hebrew because you don't want to make mistakes, or if you don't put in the time to learn on your own outside of class, then you will obviously not improve as fast as someone who studies and speaks more.

It IS actually possible to go through ulpan in Israel and not learn to speak Hebrew; I've met a few people like that. But when that happens, it's not a lack of intelligence; it's a lack of diligence. So my advice to you is, if you truly want to learn: be diligent about your studies; speak with native speakers as often as possible; and don't worry about "looking stupid" when you make mistakes. :-)

What is an ulpan level?

January 10, 2017

Hi, an ulpan is a Hebrew program they have in Israel. There are different levels such as aleph, bet, gimel, etc. I'm going on one of these programs next year so I was wondering around which level I would probably be at.

I don't know why people are down voting this post :(
