SPEAK WITH CONFIDENCE
A PROVEN PATH TO SUCCESS
Imagine the perfect combination of feedback, instruction, and language learning technique. Once we identify which speech patterns need work, we discuss exactly how to change them. We make this super easy through a unique spelling system that utilizes English phonetics to help you sound native in Hebrew.
FEEDBACK THAT WORKS
While kids pick up accents easily, adults need clear and thoughtful feedback to improve their pronunciation. I'll show you where your tongue goes, how to think about producing the sound, and everything else you need to master Modern Hebrew pronunciation.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
I really enjoyed the class. Ruben is a great teacher, enthusiastic, very responsive, incredibly knowledgeable in the field of linguistics. To find a Hebrew tutor is fairly easy however to find one that speaks Hebrew, U.S. Native English, and understands linguistics is a rare combination which allows him to make connections between the two cultures and languages to help you better understand what is actually going on without having to wade through all the books, theory, etc. For the expertise you are getting the course is well worth every penny or shekel as it were. Thanks Ruben. Nhyeh Bkesher Ahi!
