There are a number of options to learn Hebrew, including attending Hebrew school, taking an immersion course, and joining a club. People with an interest in Hebrew may want to consider their needs when choosing a venue to learn in. Some Hebrew students are academics, others are Jewish or in preparations to convert, and others simply have an interest in the language. The best choice may vary on the basis of why a person wants to learn Hebrew and where the student plans to use the language.
One option is Hebrew school. Some synagogues, shuls, and Jewish religious organizations sponsor Hebrew schools. While they are often aimed specifically at members of the Jewish faith and converts, they are open to all. Scholars and academics who would like to study Hebrew and want an environment to learn and practice in can often find a Hebrew school that will accept them. More explicitly religious schools that prepare students for rabbinical practice are also available, for Jewish students who want to become rabbis.
Colleges and universities may also have Hebrew programs that are open to all students. Hebrew clubs are another venue for learning Hebrew. Attendees can meet with people who share their interest in Hebrew and will have a chance to practice writing, reading, and speaking with others. Clubs may have resources like access to broadcasts, texts, and other materials students can use to practice and develop more skills. Many accept members at different levels and encourage members to mentor each other as they learn Hebrew.
There are also software and online courses for students who prefer more self directed study. These students can learn Hebrew at their own pace by moving through a series of course modules. The work will usually include access to recordings and practice scenarios. Some programs also come with printable flash cards and other tools students may find useful for practicing their skills and developing vocabulary.
Another option is a Hebrew immersion course. These can be found all over the world, but tend to be most common in Israel. In an immersion course, students spend numerous hours each day in Hebrew study. One advantage to studying in Israel is a chance to interact with Hebrew speakers outside the classroom. Students can arrange for home stays where they live in environments where Hebrew is used on a daily level so they can practice outside of class and develop a richer understanding of the language.
