Hebrew courses online – What are we going to learn?
Hebrew, in its classical and ancient forms, has been around for thousands of years. Modern Hebrew embodies the coming together of the cultural and historical richness of the past, with the needs and complexities of modern life. You can choose between group courses and private lessons – we’ll assign you a teacher who will best suit your level and specific needs.
The Hebrew alphabet – Did you know that the word “alphabet” is taken from the name of the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet – “Aleph” and “Bet”?
Basic Hebrew words and phrases – Did you know that the phrase “Mazal Tov” literally means good luck, but actually means congratulations (commonly used at weddings, birthdays, and other happy occasions)?
How to read sentences and basic texts – Did you know that Hebrew sentences are typically shorter than English sentences? The reason for this is that Hebrew is a “frugal” language which “squeezes” as much information into every word as possible.
Basic Hebrew grammar and syntax – Did you know that in Hebrew, adjectives come after nouns, whereas in English they come before nouns? So in Hebrew you would say “yom tov” (“day good”), instead of “good day”.
Basic conversation skills – Did you know that for many ultra-orthodox Jews, Hebrew is considered a Holy Language, to be used only for prayer and not for daily mundane conversation?
