about me

Hi, I am Irit!      It is nice to meet you (:
I was born in Israel, so basically, Hebrew is my mother tongue. I speak four other languages,
 I can tell you
I am enthusiastic about the Hebrew language, about the people, their culture, and I’d love to share with you the richness of my native language.
 I really love Hebrew therefore I have decided to teach it.
I also took Strategy Knowledge classes. They taught me to establish powerful methods of teaching. Taking Hebrew courses with me will be your best investment! Not only will you enjoy our classes, but you will easily learn the language as well.

 

 

My methods:
Through the courses, you will speak, read and write. From the beginning you will be able to have dialogues and will be developing your listening skills. You will get use to the language and gain confidence to use it. That is basically how we learn any language. By studying with me you’ll have more fun. It will also help you memorizing the lessons.
The program is built according to your needs. You’ll learn only what you want to learn. The vocabulary, the exercises, our exchanges will be focused on what is important to you. We will not waste time in areas that you don’t want to discover.

 How will you learn Hebrew?
Well, have you noticed how babies learn to speak? They don’t need extra thick books or super long tapes. They do so by imitation. This is the main reason all the lessons are basically in Hebrew. 

We will use pictures, signs and songs. 

We’ll play roles and real life situations. 

We’ll include the Bible as well, 

learning the stories of the Holy Book will help you understand the history of the Hebrew language.

 

 

 I will teach you the use of the ‘Biblical vocabulary’ in the everyday life conversations.
So that is how we are going to proceed: learning by imitating, assimilating the concepts by examples, and so on. 

I can assure you that with this method, you will be able to have a basic conversation in a short period of time.

You will benefit from learning the system of ‘family words’ in Hebrew and will use the ‘music’ and the ‘rhythms’ of the language. 

All this in order to enlarge and expand your vocabulary. 

What an exciting way to learn a language, don’t you think so?
The lessons’ environment is friendly and the atmosphere is light an supportive. 

During the courses, I’ll make sure to give my students full attention. 

I’ll give you my best to help you to speak my language and to discover how fascinating Hebrew can be.
My method help student be more confident. 

Learning a new language is never easy if you feel not sure about your own skills. 

Well, it appears that anyone can learn Hebrew, especially with me J I always encourage my students, no matter in which level they are. 

Cheering boosts confidence: you’ll find it easier to speak and to express yourself with an encouraging teacher like me.

 

Now, why do people fail in learning Hebrew?
Because they tend to translate every word to their own language. Trust me, I speak four other languages, and I had the same difficulty at the beginning! But I found more agreeable methods to master all these other languages, and I’m sharing them with you. You will learn Hebrew step by step: one step forward, and two backward, like Tango! We’ll practice, we’ll speak, and we’ll practice more, in order to anchor the vocabulary and their pronunciation.
I firmly believe that language is one way for a nation to identify itself. By using Hebrew daily, the learner will understand the people of Israel culture, how they communicate, what their values are, what they dislike, etc. Practicing day after day is a good way to learn, but practicing with method and fun is much better! So, if you want to learn Hebrew and speak this antique language like any modern one, join my courses!

I finished my first degree at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and here I am, fully skilled and more deeply in love with Hebrew.

Who else can teach Hebrew better than a native speaker who adores this language?

My method

The studies include speaking, reading and writing. I build special programs according to the students’ request, and that with a lot of attention to the vocabulary and area of studying they require and are the most important for them.

The lessons are only in Hebrew. Students are learning to speak by using a lot of imitation (like a smell child), to provide them with basic vocabulary (or enlarge their vocabulary) so they can converse and to interact with their surroundings.

By showing the rhythm and music of the Hebrew language it gives you, the student, a system which wider your vocabulary.

Your requests and needs are in the center of the studying. It adds to your study experience creativity, interest and joy.

I’m building special programs according to the students’ request, with a lot of attention to the vocabulary and area of studying they require and are the most important for them.

Every lesson is special for you, according to your needs and demands, your purposes and your abilities.

During the studies I’m definitely giving undivided attention to any special needs you may have with a lot of attention and in a caring way.

You study the theory and grammar rules with an emphasis on interpersonal communication, dialogs and conversations.

My way of teaching gives you a lot of self – confidence and is the right way to express yourself freely in Hebrew

In all the levels, different taxes will be used as an active and interactive basic. So every student will be receiving encouragement to activate his personality and imagination.

Every language has specific difficulties related to Hebrew. Therefore there is a specific attitude to difficulties that are caused by comparing and trying to translate from one language to the other. (Although I recommend no translation from your native language while speaking Hebrew, we can’t avoid the need).

Thanks to many years of experience, I know exactly how to cope with those difficulties, so that the Hebrew Studying will become much more easy and enjoyable.

I will walk you through the paths of learning a new language step by step. One step forward and two backward, tike tango, in order to practice, to refresh and remind you what has been already taught.

We study by using a lot of signs and pictures, simulation of real life and daily situations, text self edited and songs.

During the learning process there are references to the history of the language, which include The Bible.

I believe that every Language is one of the identifications of every nation. By emphasizing the daily use of functional language, it enables the learner to acquire the skills needed for communicating in the Hebrew language. My special concept and method make the student to become familiar with the new language and its culture and behavior codes.

Hebrew is a very ancient language. In my opinion, it’s important to get some explanations about the connection between the modern and the spoken language to The Bible or historical events.

I teach and encourage to study the colloquial language’ and slang by comparing it to the ‘classic language’.

Strategy Knowledge and different teaching methods for those who have learning difficulties and need reinforcement.
