Learn Hebrew Across Israel - What is it?
Few years back, we had an idea of combining our love to Israel with our love of spreading the Hebrew language.
So we went out, and started recording random Hebrew conversations around Israel.
Conversation after conversation, in places such as Jerusalem, Hermon mountain, Kinneret and The Dead Sea.
We had almost 1 Terabyte of content in video, we knew we got to stop and edit this content, make it available to the world.
Making Conversations Accessible
Editing was exhausting, took us a few months to understand how exactly we want it to be, and we've decided to translate every conversation like that:
- Hebrew translation with Vowel Signs, in the middle of the screen.
- English translation at the bottom of the screen.
Also, every conversation has a script that also includes English transliteration.
We were very happy with the results, but we knew that it's not enough to be the best online Hebrew learning experience out there.
We "built" a studio:
2 light projectors.
And Itzik started to dissect every conversation we took - sentence by sentence, word by word, giving tips and adding extra knowledge to every sentence he dissects, the lessons were so long that we knew we can't cover all the materials inside one online course.
After almost 9 months of work, adding colored scripts, quizzes, explained intros to every location, and so much more, we came up with "Learn Hebrew Across Israel - Part 1", and the last lecture was uploaded on May 25th 2018.
We watched the entire course non-stop, to make sure there are no mistakes, and requested Udemy to review the course on May 26th 2018, and hopefully publish it on June.
In Part 1 we included conversations from:
- The Dead Sea
- Ein Gedi
- Ben Shemen Forest
We are already working on part 2, which will take place in
- Hermon Mountain
- Golan Heights
And places nearby :)
We are waiting for your feedback on part 1 before we dive into editing dissections and making materials.
