The many benefits of learning a language early are clear, making the decision to enroll in a language school easy. The more challenging decision is actually choosing which language to learn. Some may think that learning a widely spoken language would provide the maximum benefit, but often the opposite is true: those who learn Hebrew, like our TK-8 explorers, are highly sought after for a variety of global career and community opportunities.
We asked Ronit Ron-Yerushalmi, our Director of Language and Global Studies, to share with us some of the incredible opportunities available to those who speak Hebrew. There is something to spark an interest in everyone in this list:
Business and Commerce: Israel has a strong tech sector and is known for innovation. Companies that operate in Israel or have business ties with Israeli companies may value employees who are fluent in Hebrew for communication and negotiation purposes.
Medical Practitioner: If you’re trained as a medical doctor or healthcare professional and are fluent in Hebrew, you could work in hospitals, clinics, or medical centers in Israel, providing medical care to Hebrew-speaking patients.
Medical Researcher: Israel is known for its advancements in medical research and technology. Being fluent in Hebrew could allow you to collaborate with Israeli research institutions and contribute to medical research projects.
Biotechnology: Israel has a strong biotech sector. If you’re fluent in Hebrew and have a background in biotechnology, you could work on innovative projects related to healthcare, agriculture, or environmental sustainability.
Venture Capital and Investment: If you’re interested in the financial side of innovation, being fluent in Hebrew could help you work with Israeli venture capital firms that invest in groundbreaking technologies and startups.
Consulting and Strategy: Fluency in Hebrew could be an asset in consulting roles, where you help businesses strategize and implement innovative solutions to various challenges.
Diplomacy and International Relations: Proficiency in Hebrew can be advantageous for working in diplomatic circles, especially if you’re interested in Israeli foreign relations. You could work for your own country’s embassy in Israel or for international organizations involved in the Middle East.
