Modern Hebrew ClassLearning Modern Hebrew is fun!

Meet the class of Sarah Israeli, teacher of Modern Hebrew Aleph Level at the Rothberg International School, Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her co-teacher for this group is Anat Zemel.

I am proud to belong to this class of 19 students from different parts of the word: USA, Korea, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Hongkong, Palestine, Hungary, Italy, and the Philippines.

With Sarah at the helm, learning a language has never been more exciting and enjoyable. This Hebrew language teacher has a gift of explaining well the lessons via examples, songs and guided conversations. She gives a lot of affirmation to the students and this makes them work more diligently. Sarah is a teacher with a heart - the mark of a great teacher.

The photos were taken in one of our last classes in Modern Hebrew this semester: 1) the picture of the class with Sarah and Anat, 2 and 3) examples of role play in a given situation, 4) members of the class in a spontaneous moment 5 to 8) Hebrew lesson with Sarah touring us around the historic places in the Hebrew University Campus.
