Tachles Conversational Hebrew

Have you always wanted to learn conversational Hebrew but didn’t have time for Ulpan?
Or maybe you are simply planning a trip to the country and want to “get by”?

Tachles is the program for your community!

Tachles is a conversational Hebrew program that will teach practical, modern Hebrew for everyday
life in Israel. Sessions are taught in fun, game based, and interactive role play methods. Participants
will learn Israeli slang, how to ask questions and understand the answers, and acquire basic
vocabulary! The program is an exciting alternative to the classic classroom style of Hebrew teaching.

"What was really cool is that I now have a foundation for speaking Hebrew. When we go to Israel, we'll be able to use the words we learned when we talk to people around the country. They can also be used if we have to introduce ourselves or buy food and other stuff.” (Kim Wolfshout, a participant in the program from Toronto, Canada)

The sessions are suitable for beginners and intermediate levels.
Ages: grade 7 and up, ideally for adults.
Cost: online: $100 / in class kit: $200
