Jewish Agency launches free pilot of their on-line Hebrew Ulpan

The Jewish Agency of Israel is introducing a new on-line Hebrew Ulpan, which will be inaugurated with a free 4-week pilot. It is open to individuals age 15 and older, and knowledge of the alef-bet is a prerequisite. According to their literature, the pilot will include:

  • 4 Lessons consisting of 1.5 interactive, live (real time) contact hours each, plus independent study (assignments, review)
  • Acquisition of the full range of language skills - Speaking, Reading,Writing, Listening and Visual Comprehension
  • All lessons contain Vocabulary, Language Structure and Grammar
  • Blended methods of study [ed: I had no idea what that meant, but Wikipedia did.]

The format will consist of four synchronous webconferences on Mondays (at 5:00 PM Israel time), starting July 2. To register, or for more information, contact Sandrine Balloffet.
