The BENEFITS of participating in this activity

Practice Hebrew by speaking! 

Your motivation is the key to your success in Hebrew. Talk in Hebrew about things that interest you. We will learn together a new vocabulary in order to understand the films and talk about them.

The course will allow you to practice your conversation skills in Hebrew. 

Learn in a small group! 

You will learn in small group, 6-10 students per class. The intimacy of a small group makes it possible to learn in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, where you feel comfortable to make mistakes and try again.

Our approach will allow you to rapidly improve your Hebrew skills.

Discover Israeli society and culture!

The films curated for the courses deal with key issues in contemporary Israeli society such as: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, immigration, the inter-Jewish ethnic divide, the Holocaust, and more.

During the class we will us the films as a basis for a broad discussion about those subjects.  

Discover Israeli society by watching and discussing Israeli documentaries.
