Conversational Hebrew

Past students have raved about the course saying:

"Gerdy Trachtman provides the ideal opportunity to become conversant in Hebrew in a matter of months. She fast-tracks our learning by providing phonetic transliterations of all vocabulary that we learn, so that we can focus our time on speaking the language rather than wrestling with an unfamiliar alphabet...I can't wait to take the class again!"

"I personally learn by hearing rather than by reading so this class was right for me. It was also a great way to meet new and interesting people who also sometimes enjoyed laughing together at ourselves!"
