Learning a language is best done when completely immersed in it with no choice but to get on the bandwagon. Living in Israel is ideal for getting to know the country, the culture and the language. But if you can’t get up and leave everything you’re doing in order to move to a foreign country, move to Brooklyn or Los Angeles…just kidding! While there are large, Hebrew speaking communities in the U.S. and other countries, you can learn Hebrew online right from your home computer. Then you can visit some of those communities to practice (and show off.)Learning Hebrew at home has a few prerequisites. Typically lessons are done over the computer through Skype, but if you don’t have access you can set it up over the phone. Outside of immersion, the best way to learn Hebrew is with a private tutor who will teach you, work with you, maximize your strengths, and build you up. Each individual learner has his own needs and way of learning, and a real, live person guiding you through the process is the fastest and most efficient way to get you up to speed.The main thing is the desire to learn and grow. Two sessions a week for forty five minutes each is not a lot of time, but it’s the consistency and the focus that will bring success. And it’s not just a joke; try out your Hebrew with some natives as it’s the next best thing to being in Israel. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Correct yourself and try again, and discuss your errors with your private, online coach.To learn about Ulpan-Or’s options for learning Hebrew in the convenience in your own home anywhere in the world, please click here.Looking forward to seeing you online!
