Details & What to Expect

Morning classes: classes will be held 5 days per week (Sun-Thu), 4 hours a day (with a mid-morning recess). We’ll be reading, writing, singing, hearing stories, playing games, watching videos and more.

Afternoons: Afternoons and Fridays are for studying & homework, meeting with teachers for tutoring if desired, helping out on the campus (your occasional help is needed and very much appreciated while you’re here!), and free time.

Evening activities: one of the best parts of the course are the evening activities, including story hour, Hebrew movie night, worship, and most fun of all – immersion night, where we set up a real-life immersion situation based on a weekly theme like going to a shopping mall or going to the airport to catch a flight!

Housing: our housing on campus is two large, separate men’s and women’s dormitories. Each dorm is one large room with individual beds and storage areas. The closeness of everyone together is a blessing as it facilitates conversations, prayer times and more opportunities to get to know everyone and build friendships. We have very limited private housing, first come first serve, so please contact events@hayovel.com asap if you need separate housing.

Food: all meals are provided and served daily in the cafeteria. Meal time is a great chance to get to know your fellow students and practice Hebrew together! Snacks and special dietary items are up to you to bring.

Levels & Material

New! Children’s Class

This year we are offering a new class for children! Bring your children ages three to ten for a Hebrew immersion experience (Mothers will need to accompany their children for this class). Children have the unique ability to absorb languages easily in an immersion setting. In a fun environment filled with games, songs and hands on activities this class will be 2 hours every morning on all regular class days.

Level 1 (Aleph): Beginning Hebrew

For students who have learned the basics of reading Hebrew, and are ready to begin learning useful words, putting together the basic building blocks of Hebrew grammar (including present tense verbs), and having fun while doing so!

Prerequisites: knowledge of the block and script letters and vowels.
Curriculum (optional): Hebrew from the Very Beginning Book 1 by Joseph Williams. It will be available for purchase on-campus.

Level 2 (Bet): Intermediate Hebrew

For students who have already studied some Hebrew and are ready to build on their vocabulary, step up their grammar (including getting skilled in past tense verb conjugation), and increase their ability to use Hebrew in everyday life.

Prerequisites: basic Hebrew grammar, vocabulary and present tense verb conjugation
Curriculum (optional): Hebrew from the Very Beginning Book 2 by Joseph Williams. It will be available for purchase on-campus.

Level 3 (Gimel): Advanced Hebrew

Prerequisites: strong reading ability, basic conversational ability, and past and present tense verb conjugation
Curriculum: Eclectic. A good Hebrew-English dictionary is recommended but not required (see HebrewFromTheVeryBeginning.com for a list of good options).

Online Hebrew Course


Our internet classes are a great way to move forward in your Hebrew studies for those who have time or budget constraints that make the on-site class not possible. Unlike many other online Hebrew programs, all our classes are live, not recorded, so you can ask questions in real time and practice speaking with your teacher and classmates, making for engaging and effective learning! The family discount makes this a great option for homeschooling families.

Dates & Schedule

  • DATE: December 2, 2018 to January 10, 2019
  • TIME: Sun-Thu, 8-10am CST
  • LOCATION: Anywhere in the world!

Details & What to Expect

Class format: classes will be 2 hours per day, 5 days per week. We’ll read from the Bible in Hebrew, learn, play games, sing songs, and more!

Recorded lessons: recordings of each lesson will be available in case you have to miss a class one day or go back to review something. Please note the recordings will only be available until about a week after the course ends.

Homework: additional assignments will be given at the end of each lesson. We recommend that students complete the assignment on paper and then take a picture or scan and email it to the teacher for grading (we’ll email back a reviewed copy). Completion of homework is encouraged but not required.

What you’ll need:

  • a way to take notes
  • a strong internet connection
  • headphones or earbuds (to prevent echoing for other students from your speakers)
  • a microphone that works with your computer (have someone help you test it ahead of time!)
  • (optional) a webcam – it’s nice and makes the class more personable when everyone can see each other
  • (optional) Hebrew from the Very Beginning Book 1 – the book that we’ll be working through during the course
