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!

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 make 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
