Ariella is an awesome teacher. I’m only on my third of ten lessons and I’ve already learned a ton. She is patient, kind, very knowledgeable, with a high degree of customized direction to my particular voice. There are so many moving parts to producing a vocal and Ariella’s coaching is geared to helping me recognize and understand them. I’m already looking forward to my next lesson.

Ariella is an incredible teacher! In under an hour, she guided me through just about every area of vocal training: we worked on breathing, vocal positioning, different volumes, and singing across the break. I was amazed by the ease with which she integrated my own goals and her pedagogy. She is a kind, compassionate, professional, and extremely skillful teacher. I hope many people get a chance to study with her!

Rinat is easily the best hebrew tutor on takelessons since she's a native and fluent speaker of hebrew. Most hebrew speakers seem to learn it from a classroom, but you really cannot replace the value of a fully immersed teacher that uses the language every day. This is what you get from Rinat.

My partner is using Rinat as a way to learn hebrew to prepare for future entry into a rabbinical program. This is also helping them to deepen their own jewish identity as a jew from an interfaith family where jewish education and experience wasn't always front and center.

Glad to have Rinat in our lives and happy to see all the progress my partner is making. Lessons with Rinat make them glow with happiness.
Mike Roberts
Rinat is prepared for each lesson and is thorough. I find that she is patient and flexible and can discern whether you are motivated and making an effort. While my initial goal was solely to be conversational in Hebrew, I am working with her on reading in Hebrew as well. After our first few sessions, I am totally confident that she will get me to where I want to be.
Bruce H.
Rinat is a great instructor and an entertaining personality who is ready to help you at any level. She engaged me in real conversation and provided useful and fun slang along the way. As an Israeli with Hebrew as her first language, she was very helpful at easing me out of Language apps and into everyday conversational Hebrew, which is tough and a little scary at first. But Rinat can help you though this.

About my class: It’s very good. The reading part is very interesting (that Ted talk). Before that I didn’t read loudly. When I started Ted talk Odaya she advised me to read at loud, when I didn’t understand something. When I practiced that later at home, I felt the change. I am very much excited for my next class

"I am thrilled to be working with Ariella Edvy in my quest to learn Hebrew. Her approach of using music and video clips to teach make her lessons fun and relevant. But there are two things that really set her apart -- her art of teaching elocution (she makes you feel it!) and her way of modeling her lessons to each individual's learning style."

Learn Hebrew Online and Near You

The Hebrew language is one-of-a-kind, with documents dating back to 1,000 BC that have survived through to today. The deep history of this language makes it a rich and rewarding experience to study and speak for people of all ages.

Just how ancient is it? Some scholars suggest that Hebrew was used as early as 5,000 BC. For a period of over 1,500 years, the language was read but not spoken. This means that many qualities of the language have been preserved throughout history.

Hebrew's major claim to fame is that nearly all of the Old Testament Bible was originally written in the language. For this reason, there's a large demand to learn Ancient Hebrew for the purpose of better understanding these historical texts.

There are a few key differences from English that mak

...

e learning Hebrew a unique experience. For example, Hebrew is written from right to left and has no vowels! This makes it especially important to have a teacher guide you through your efforts to learn Hebrew.

Why Learn Hebrew?

With over nine million native speakers of the modern language, you'll have plenty of opportunities to use your Hebrew skills for work or travel. When you learn the language fundamentals such as the Hebrew alphabet, much of what you learn can be applied to both modern and Biblical Hebrew. Let's look at a few more of the benefits you’ll experience when learning this unique language.

Reasons to Take Hebrew Lessons for Kids

There are plenty of reasons for your child to learn Hebrew. Studying the language can open their minds to new ways of thinking and interacting with the world. Many children enjoy the challenge of learning the Hebrew alphabet, which is entirely different from English. They also love the challenge of writing from right to left. It’s no surprise that learning a second language has been found to strengthen a child's brain.

Regions of the brain dealing with overall functioning see an increase in size that allows for improvement in internal dialogues often used for problem-solving, and the ability to overcome obstacles to achieve a goal. Fluency in a second language like Hebrew will also likely open up more unique career opportunities for your child in the future.

Benefits of Hebrew Classes for Adults Near You

If you're an adult interested in how to learn Hebrew, you'll also benefit from taking lessons. First, you'll be able to read and enjoy ancient documents in their original languages. You'll have a link to ancient civilization by visiting the world-famous Wailing Wall, Tower of David and Church of the Holy Sepulcher. 

You'll also get to participate in Israel's booming, technology-driven economy, or pursue a career in immigration where you can put your skills to good use. Besides this, science has found that learning a new language is good for your health. You'll strengthen your neural networks and increase your brain's plasticity, which has been found to delay the onset of dementia.

How to Learn Hebrew 

When it comes to starting a new language, everyone begins at a different place. Your Hebrew teacher will consider your age, interests, and learning style when deciding on lesson topics. They’ll then present you with a lesson plan which lays out the achievable goals you’ll need to reach your full potential with the language. You'll either start at the beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. Here's a summary of what to expect at each level.

Sample Curriculum in Hebrew for Beginners 

Learning Hebrew for beginners will take you through the fundamentals of the language. You'll develop a solid foundation to build your language skills for years to come. Your teacher will also help you stay motivated so that you can build up your skills in an enjoyable way. Here are some topics you'll explore.

  • Writing the Hebrew alphabet
  • Basic Hebrew vocabulary and greetings
  • Learn to speak Hebrew with proper pronunciation
  • How to form basic sentences
  • Introduction to Hebrew culture

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Hebrew Lessons

If you find yourself somewhere in the middle, this is the level you'll probably start at. There's a lot to look forward to in the intermediate stage of lessons, including the ability to make deeper connections with friends in Hebrew. With some hard work and practice, you’ll soon be an advanced speaker! Here's some of what you'll cover.

  • Irregular Hebrew grammar rules
  • Listening comprehension skills
  • Conversational skills
  • Reading comprehension

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Hebrew Classes

If you're starting at the advanced level of Hebrew, you've already invested a lot of time in learning. Whether you want to learn Biblical Hebrew or simply learn to speak Hebrew more in-depth, your teacher will help you get there. Here are a few topics you might cover at this stage.

  • Reading without vowel points
  • Formal and informal writing
  • Sayings and idioms in Hebrew
  • Differentiating between Ancient Hebrew and Modern Hebrew
