Learn conversational Hebrew

Israel is a vibrant and dynamic country, home of leading High Tec companies, a leader in industrial and technical innovation, known for its agriculture and for its cultural life. Hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe want to learn Hebrew so that they can experience modern Israeli culture to the full.

Now while being able to read and write Hebrew (with its Hebrew characters going from right to left) is important – being able to ask directions, buy a cup of coffee or just striking up a conversation is undeniably the best way to get under the skin of modern Hebrew culture and meet the people.

Learning the Lingo

There are many ways to learn conversational Hebrew. You could enroll in a Spoken Hebrew course at your local Community College, buy an audio course, listen to podcast lessons or even hire a private tutor. You could sign up for an on-line Hebrew language course that is part of a larger program that, should you choose to, will not only teach you how to speak in Hebrew but will also into the richness of the Hebrew language and give you an insight into Hebrew culture, society and yes, even politics.

Conversational Hebrew – what’s your goal?

Obviously, everybody has a different goal when they decide that they want to learn conversational Hebrew. Perhaps you just want to learn very basic spoken Hebrew so you order a coffee in Aroma or ask for directions to the central bus station? Maybe you want to be able to understand, at least in general, what people are saying around you. Perhaps you want to be able to hold a conversation with a native Hebrew speaker about sport, the weather or the political situation.

So before starting a conversational Hebrew course, you have to be clear about what you want to achieve and select the course that can best bring you to the level of conversational Hebrew that you need. It’s also a good idea to check to see if the course offers other study tracks for Hebrew and Israel related subjects because learning a language without having a basic knowledge and understanding of the society and culture will make understanding the ins and outs of the language more difficult.

Also be sure that the course caters for all learning curves. It’s no good to you if the teachers or the materials cater to those who need extra help while those who learn at a greater speed get frustrated.

Study materials and methods need to be varied and interesting. Gone are the days of simple rote learning or “say after me”.

Check out the course schedule – does it fit yours? Is it possible to take lessons you missed or getter extra help if you need it?

Everybody is different, but we hope that these few tips will help you decide the best conversational Hebrew program for you.

Be’Hatzlacha! That’s Good Luck in Hebrew.
