Rosen School of Hebrew Review
The Rosen School of Hebrew is a part of the eTeacher group, one of the largest online language academies in the world. The School, a prestigious academy specializing in online learning of modern Hebrew, partnered with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to guarantee the quality of teaching.

The sessions take place in small groups of students from all over the world. Interaction is an important and fun part of the learning experience and to do so, participants can share their screen, chat and speak with the teacher and other participating students.
All course instructions are in Hebrew, so you start talking and practicing Hebrew straight from day one.

How it works
Rosen School of Hebrew combines pre-made lesson plans and learning materials with live instructions from certified teachers in an online setting.
Lessons take place at several different times a day during the week and on Sundays. Students can choose their preferred class times when signing up. Groups meet once a week for a 55 minutes long class, for a total period of nine months. Small homework assignments are part of the course; your work will be evaluated and you’ll receive feedback from the teacher. The service also offers weekly enrichment sessions and homework assistance, both of which take place in a Q&A setup. The classes are also available for download which gives you the option to watch or rewatch them at a convenient time.
The teaching method, known as Ulpan, was first used when Israel was founded in 1948 in order to teach immigrants the Hebrew language. The method uses only Hebrew and is directed at teaching basic vocabulary, with a special focus on common words and phrases, holidays, traditions and cultural aspects.

“E-Teacher is an excellent interactive learning program. My teachers have been patient and helpful and encourage me to learn. The recorded lessons are downloadable so you can save them and listen to them and review what you have learned. I have met a lot of interesting people and have made some good friends as well!”
“This is a wonderful way to study Hebrew. The teacher Rochalle Eliyahu is a magnificent one. She helps a lot. If I decide to continue with the next level, I will do it only if she is my teacher again. Keep doing the e- teaching.”
“All my teachers have been very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. I love that I am in class with people from all over the world. Not only can I study and talk with them but thanks to video also see them. It’s been a wonderful experience and I now can speak Hebrew!”
“I always look forward to our weekly meeting with Nurit Aviv and the other students in the class. She is a great teacher and also tries to help us with our technical issues. I would most certainly recommend these courses to anyone who has an interest in the Hebrew language, culture and history.”
“I spoke fluent Hebrew as a young child but then forgot it when we lived in the US. For many years I have tried to re-learn it on my own, but the Rosen program has put my learning on the fast-track. The digital book is very helpful and the Malka has been an amazing and very patient teacher.”
