Watching a movie is as close to immersion as it can get! It's like being magically teleported to Israel for an hour!
How will we learn?
We pick an Israeli movie or series for you, and...
While you watch...
You watch an episode during the week before the lesson, at your pace, with English subs - you do your best to listen in, recognize some words, share them and ask questions in the course chat, and do other assignments prepared for you aimed at practicing your Hebrew.
After you watch...
You do some language games in Hebrew we have prepared for you based on what you have watched, and then you do another assignment - you are about to retell what you've seen - in Hebrew!
The paramount moment of the week! Six days after we started working on the episode, we meet for a speaking practice lesson in Zoom, discussing what we have watched!
Where do we watch the movies?!
We are very lucky to have IZZY as our official course partner!!! Hurray! Izzy is the best online streaming service, like Netflix, for Israeli cinema. If you aren't subscribed to it yet - you are in for a treat! :)
