ETeacher: Hebrew Courses Overview

Hebrew is a language spoken by over 7 million people, the majority of which live in Israel. It is one of the oldest languages in the world and was almost extinct until it’s revival as a spoken language in the late 19th century.

With eTeacher, you learn online in small groups (6-8 students) or in private sessions (one-on-one). Classes are scheduled based on students' locations, time zones, and personal preferences. The group classes are based on one of two intensity levels, depending on the needs of the group. For the higher intensity program, classes take place twice weekly, while the lower intensity course is comprised of one class per week. Students may submit homework and learn new words before each class. The private program (one-on-one tutoring) allows students to progress at a pace and intensity suited to their personal skill level.

All of our teachers undergo comprehensive training courses to prepare them for online teaching. After each session, students are asked to rate the lesson, enabling us to maintain our standard of teaching excellence.

The Hebrew program consists of 5 different levels from complete beginners to highly advanced students.
Children age 7-17 can also enjoy eTeacher’s online program, attending specially designed courses. Classes are smaller, more intimate, and grouped based on homogenous age groups only.

A family history of Hebrew tuition

eTeacher Hebrew is the modern continuation of a grand tradition of Hebrew education for non-native speakers. Founders Boaz and Yariv are grandsons of Aharon Rosen, a pioneer of the discipline during the creation of the State of Israel and bestselling author of the Thousand Hebrew Words series.

From student to bestselling author

An immigrant himself, Rosen was a passionate teacher. The Ministry of Education commissioned him to develop an adult-learning system as waves of Olim arrived during the 1950s. His bestselling works are still widely regarded as the definitive Hebrew tuition texts for foreign students.

Continuing the tradition

Still in use today, Rosen's methods are highly effective and based on a deep understanding of language learning processes in particular relation to Hebrew. His grandsons have used state-of-the-art technology to perpetuate his vision of bringing Hebrew to anyone who wishes to learn it, at any age, anywhere in the world.
