Hafsika means “break” in Hebrew.
We get a 1/2 hour break from class at 10:00 a.m., and a ten-minute one later at 11:50 a.m.
New classes are starting all the time here at Ulpan Gordon, because you constantly have new immigrants arriving and needing to learn Hebrew. Last week, I noticed a lot of new , hot students during hafsika; it was really packed!
I decided it was worth showing you how jammin’ an environment it is. There are students – new immigrants and just temporary visitors in Israel – from all over the world: including, North & South America, Eastern and Western Europe, Africa and Australia.
A lot of them are younger than me (like, in their 20’s), because if you think about it, it’s more common to make a big step like emigrating when you’re younger. But plenty of people are just as crazy as me my age and even older, too.
Looks fun, don’t it? BTW, here is a good one-pager my friend and fellow blogger Ms. Babble wrote up about what to do before you begin studying in an ulpan. She created the Ulpan Gordon site I linked to above, too.
