eTeacher are one of the leading online Hebrew language providers. Classes are instructed by Israeli professors from the country’s best universities and Israeli certified instructors, who are specifically qualified to teach Hebrew as a second language.eTeacher use an immersion approach to teaching, lessons are in Hebrew only, regardless of the class's level or students' background.

So how do you learn Hebrew with eteacher?

eTeacher’s system gives you all the advantages of classroom-based learning without the hassle of actually been physically present. Lesson content is delivered by voice, video, and "shared whiteboard" technology. Live video enables the student to see the teacher during the lesson, and the teacher can see every student who has a web cam (optional). Teacher and students speak using the microphones on their PC headsets. A typical class has one instructor and six to eight students; you also have the option of 1-1 learning if you don't want to learn with other students.However, I advise that you learn with other students, you will get a lot more from your course this way. 

Every lesson includes assessments, drills, and comprehension checkpoints. After each lesson, students are required to complete pre-assigned homework exercises from the workbooks.

Ease of Use:

Students can login from the comfort of their home, office, or anywhere really, using a unique username and password. Once you attend classes, your online instructor will take care of the actual learning process and the pace of the class. The course structure follows a natural progression, which takes you from beginner to advanced level. However, as with any online language course you have to be committed to attending classes and completing the required course work.

Learning Features:

  • Weekly personal session: a personal online meeting with the teacher during which the student can ask questions or seek clarification about the course material.
  • Forum: A 24/7 Question and Answer forum for students to post inquiries and receive replies about course-related issues.
