In America, you go to the mall to hang out or to the supermarket to pick up some things. But when you're in Israel, you take a trip to the shuk. It's not just a marketplace; it's an experience, one that most tour agencies even put up on their list of essential sights. And when you come to study Hebrew in Israel, you'll find the shuk is also a great tutor.
When you'll go, the shuk hits you with the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of another world. There you'll mingle with a flood of strangers from all over Israel and across the globe. Think of it as a sort of Middle Eastern melting pot.
It's also the best place to cut your teeth on a new language. The shuk is an exciting part of the Hebrew immersion program; the classroom outside of the classroom where the language comes alive as you explore the market, try exotic cuisines, and perhaps even learn to haggle just like a local.
