Israel

Israel is a highly urbanized and economically developed society and is therefore best divided for the traveler into its main cities and towns, followed by the regions and other sites.

Hebrew and Arabic are the official languages of Israel. Hebrew is most commonly spoken. 10% of the population are Israeli-Arabs who speak Arabic as well.

Because Israel was a British colony, and also because the United States is now Israel’s closest ally, English is the most popular foreign language. Israelis study English in school from an early age, and it is commonly understood in Israel. Nearly anyone you meet on the street will be able to communicate with you in English. All street and road signs (and many others) have English names, as well as the Hebrew and Arabic names.
