each Kibbutz is different. basically, you have to divide israel into north, south and central, in terms of its education system. fi you want to learn hebrew, you stay away from the central part at all costs because that is where israelis are fluent in english and will want to practice their english on you, no matter what you do. the south is second place, but the weather is so nice and being from LA, i am biased in favor of that weather. and of course, i think the people from there are very good too. lastly, in the north is where people tend to know english the worst. so that is your best bet to learn english there. the ONLY ways you will learn english is (1) being forced to speak, read and write hebrew because you have no choice and (2) having the support of fluent israelis from time to time to translate words that are difficult to translate in terms of phrases we take for granted.
