“B’shvil Ha’Ivrit” is a Hebrew language program, bringing Hebrew alive with print and digital media, along with face-to-face and virtual training for Hebrew teachers. The program cultivates all aspects of Hebrew language learning – grammar and content, conversations and literature, poetry and factual information, drills and exercises and topics for lively discussion, songs and moral dilemmas, writing assignments and independent reading, current events and Biblical texts.
Technology enhances and supports learning with audio recordings, interactive technology, documentary films, and more. As students speak, read, write, and listen to spoken Hebrew, they encounter new viewpoints on daily life in Israel, Jewish tradition and history, and general world knowledge.
The “B’shvil Ha’Ivrit” curriculum and materials encourage an ongoing and dynamic interaction between content, linguistics, and skill development. They offer a wide variety of genres – prose and poetry, conversations, interviews, articles, notes, questionnaires and more; opportunities to master the 4 communicative skills -reading, writing, listening and speaking; and a sequential progression of grammar and linguistics.
The curriculum is made up of:
Mechina (fully online module)
Beginners (Bishvil Ha-Ivrit 1 and 2)
Intermediate (Bishvil Ha-Ivrit 3 and 4)
