I have been a student of Hebrew at Spiro Ark for some 15 years. Our teacher Nitza improves our reading, writing, listening and comprehension skills with a variety of materials – the latest news from Israel, short stories, songs, the occasional film or poem, as well as a regular look at our textbook. We all get a chance to speak in Hebrew and enlarge our vocabulary. My Hebrew has improved to the extent that recently I was able to give a talk to Israeli teachers in the language – it would not have been possible without Nitza’s patience and dedication.
In addition the students in the class have become friends, and we all look forward to seeing each other on a Wednesday morning!
