Check out the coming courses starting on 17th APRIL 2023 below!
Want to sing in Hebrew?
When you learn Hebrew with Matan you will not only SPEAK, READ AND WRITE in Hebrew, but also SING beatiful Israeli songs we learn and sing with my guitar!
רוצים לשיר בעברית?
התלמידים שלי לומדים לא רק לדבר, לקרוא ולכתוב בעברית, אלא גם לשיר שירים ישראלים יפים, שאנחנו שרים עם הגיטרה שלי!
Focus on Culture and Politics
I teach in a variety of methods, including speaking, listening, reading and writing. I include music and series in my lessons, and I have special courses focusing on Israeli society, culture and music.
I teach in small groups, and I have really speacial students from different backgrounds, and there's a unique dynamique and bond in each group.
It's important to me to keep the prices affordable to everyone even though the market prices are much higher. 250£ for a 20 hours course means 12.5£ per hour!
I provide discount for students and for those who need it, so please of you need a discount because of any situation do tell me and don't let money impede your Hebrew learning!
In the past, I have taught in many Hebrew schools, including Eteacher (Rosen Hebrew School), Ulpan Kibbutz and the acclaimed Ulpan Bayit in Tel Aviv.
Learn IVRIT not only as language, but also as means to understand the culture, identity, music and politics.
Speak, read, write and understand IVRIT.
לדבר, לקרוא, לכתוב ולהבין עברית.
For people who benefit better from 1 on 1 lessons, I offer privates. It is definitely not as affordable as my groups (which is about 16£ per hour), but for some students it works better: either because you might need Hebrew for a professional reason (research, translation) or you simply want to have privates and you can afford it. If you're a student or need a discount for ehichever reason, I can provide that, of course.
This is the total beginners course for people who have no background in Hebrew. We follow the units of hebrew from scratxh and we learn to speak, read and write - the very first step into your journey in Hebrew!
*price is for online groups of 5-7 students. for smaller groups price

For people who have no background in Hebrew who cannot commit to a weekly lesson and want to learn at their own pace, I provide the first 10 lessons course as recorded videos from my lovely group in 2021. This is following the units of Hebrew from Scratch - the best way to get familiar with the Alef bet and basic Hebrew!
I provide the videos, the material and homework and you send me your progress after each lesson until you finish the course. then, you can join Beginners 2 online!
