Course structure and goals
The Ulpan teaching method was initiated soon after the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, using associative learning to teach Hebrew in Hebrew. eTeacher implements the Ulpan method to teach, using basic vocabulary revolving around Jewish holidays, traditions, modern day Israeli culture and current affairs.
The classes focus on speaking, reading and writing. Throughout the course students learn the Hebrew alphabet (Aleph Bet), vowels, and acquire a vocabulary of roughly 500 words in Hebrew, enabling them to conduct a basic conversation in Modern Hebrew.

- Recorded Lessons – All the lessons are recorded and available on demand.
- Q&A and extra practice sessions – A weekly teacher moderated session for Q&A and discussion group.
- Forum – A 24/7 online forum to answer all your course-related questions.
