My name is Joyce and I am a 65yr old Grandma from the UK. I wanted to learn Hebrew many years ago but bringing up children meant I was too busy. So now they are grown I decided to try again.
My biggest fear was a classroom situation where I thought I would be unable to keep up with other students. I met Gil on a NOW week in Israel and his gentle yet positive manner encouraged me to try skype lessons with Ulpan Aviv. He teaches me at my pace with a great deal of patience and he makes it really interesting with insight into the Jewish culture. I enjoy my made to measure, pressure free lessons.
Learning Hebrew with Ulpan Aviv is a lot of fun (even the homework). I hope others will try this way of learning and enjoy the experience as much as I do. So if you are teetering , jump in, you’ll be glad you did.
