About This Class


In this class you will learn how to confidently introduce yourself in Hebrew plus a few daily used words, phases and questions. You will practice listening and speaking with an emphasis on pronunciation until you are fully comfortable with these sentences. At the end of the class, for the class project, you will record yourself speaking in Hebrew! 

You should spend 15 minutes a day learning and practicing what you learned. Practice by repeating out loud each new word you learned. Each lesson is very interactive and you will be asked to repeat after the speaker as well as recall the words from memory.

What you will need:

  • 15 minutes daily to practice new words
  • A way to record yourself (voice only)¬†


  • ¬†Introduce¬†yourself in Hebrew and use a least one of the question sentences to ask a question.
  • Upload it for us all to hear you speak in your target language!¬†

This project is designed to help you overcome the fear of  actually speaking in a different language where others can hear. It can be daunting at first but after some practice it will become second nature.

Do not worry if you have absolutely no knowledge of Hebrew or how to go about learning a second language! This class is for you! Along with each lesson I will give tips plus free websites to visit in order to practice and improve your skills further.
