Our Teachers

All our teachers have the very best training: the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s program for Hebrew Teaching as a Foreign Language. Young, experienced and enthusiastic, our teachers are all passionate about the Hebrew language, be they artists or researchers.
We use the classic Ulpan Method: speaking only Hebrew from day one. This is a world-known method that has been adopted by many countries for teaching any language. No matter what your level or background, by only using Hebrew from the first day you are guaranteed to start speaking after a short amount of time.
