Questions and Answers

• Who decides what classes to have? The students in the classes are asked what they would like to learn. We try to offer inspiring classes with excellent teachers.

• I am a beginner. Where should I start? There are many classes that fit everyone who wants to learn.

• Do I need to know Hebrew? Hebrew is not a pre-requisite for any class. Although through our Hebrew curriculum, you can learn to read, understand and speak Hebrew.

• Will I have to buy a lot of books? In most classes there is no need to buy any books. Where a book is required for your class text, it would be one that you will enjoy owning.
