Language Course

Modern Hebrew Spring 2024 - دورات اللغة العبرية

Overview

Modern Hebrew is one of the two official languages of Israel, used as first language by the majority of its citizens. It is spoken by around 9 million people worldwide, most of whom live in Israel. The roots of the Hebrew language are traced back to the first millennium B.C. which makes it one of the most ancient languages still spoken in the world today! Based on its classical sources (biblical, rabbinical & medieval) Hebrew was revived as a spoken language at the turn of the 20th century by a joint effort of intellectuals, teachers and educators, the most renowned of whom was Eliezer Ben-Yehuda to become what is today Modern (or Israeli) Hebrew, the modern form of the ancient language.

All courses are taught using The Polis Method which immerses students in the target language from the very first class which allows learning in a more natural way. The Polis Method focuses on total immersion and speech fluency and we believe helps students acquire the language quicker than the traditional grammar translation method.
