FAQ

We specialize in teaching our students how to use their Hebrew out in the real world. Rather than solely focusing on theoretical concepts, we emphasize learning everyday Hebrew and constantly update our curriculum with the most relevant content. Our classes have a high-energy rhythm that mimics real-world dynamics, enabling our students to have plenty of speaking time during each lesson and build the confidence to speak Hebrew in everyday situations. 

Yes! While we emphasize communication skills that will boost your speaking confidence in our classes, we still make sure to teach you everything you need to know in order to read and write effectively in Hebrew. 

Not necessarily. Before you get started with us, we invite you to meet one of our teachers online for a level assessment. If you’ve already learned Hebrew in the past, our teachers may suggest you skip a few levels and start at the level that will give you the best value right now. Sometimes, our teachers may offer you to choose between two levels and provide you with the pros and cons of choosing either level.
