Hebrew and Arabic are the two official languages of the country. Hebrew is considered the primary language of the state, which is widely used by the major part of the population in their everyday life and Arabic is usually used by the Arab minority and is taught in the Arab schools. English is also widely spoken on the territory of the country and is also used in various television programs, educational systems of local universities and even in the daily conversations. Due to the mass immigration from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia, such languages as Russian and Amharic are also widely spread.
