Hebrew Adults Level 1
Duration: 45 minutes
Level 1 is intended for non-Hebrew-speakers, who do not know how to read and write in Hebrew. The sessions will be held once a week for 45-50 minutes and will focus on acquiring and developing the following language skills: reading and reading comprehension, writing, grammar, listening comprehension, and conversation.
During the course, participants will learn:
*To recognize sounds (vowels & consonants)
*To recognize and write the letters of the alphabet in print, nikud, words, and short sentences.
*To read simple words and short sentences.
*To converse in Hebrew using new vocabulary learned in class.
*** Conversation in Hebrew will be presented in transliteration until students acquire the Hebrew alphabet. Participants will be given homework assignments to reinforce material learned in the classroom. Join our class today to develop your Hebrew skills and together we will learn to read, write, and speak in Hebrew.
The OFEK program offers Hebrew classes with certified Hebrew speaking teachers in small groups, immersed in a warm, supportive, Israeli atmosphere. At OFEK we view Hebrew as a gateway to Israel and the Jewish culture and people. During classes, the students will engage with the Hebrew language by studying a variety of topics related to Israel and the Jewish people: History, Geography, Israeli Identity, Jewish Identity, Music, Art, Holidays, Games and more. The diverse, interactive, online curriculum is aimed at delivering a personal learning experience for the students.
At OFEK, we place a special emphasis on creating and building an Israeli-Jewish online community through a social platform, where students are invited to strengthen their Hebrew speaking skills with each other. Ofek is a unique platform that lets learners develop and preserve the Hebrew language and Israeli Jewish culture in an experiential and communal way.
