The Online Academy: Teaching Hebrew as a Foreign Language
Studies toward a Specialization Certificate in the Online Academy for Teaching Hebrew as a Foreign Language is an online program whose aim is to assist teachers of Hebrew as a Foreign Language in the Diaspora.* Please note this program is conducted in Hebrew.
The program will focus on expanding teachers and students in knowledge of the didactics of teaching the language: grammar (context-dependent), vocabulary, literature and expression;
- Particular emphasis will be placed on the technological aspect and the use of audio-visual and
Internet aids in teaching the language;
- The program will stress knowledge of Jewish sources and values as well as the love of Israel,
and will instill democratic values and knowledge of the country's institutions.
The program comprises of two types of modular courses: Basic courses (mandatory courses); And enrichment courses (electives).
Two main aspects are highlighted in all courses: The theoretical aspect and the practical (didactic) one. The required assignments during the course are designed to assist in practicing the teaching material. For those interested in further strengthening the didactical aspect, it is recommended to sing-up for the workshop "Teaching Hebrew: Tools, Implementation and Experience" as one of the elective courses.
Upon successful completion of eight courses – six mandatory courses plus two enrichment courses (thereby accumulating eight credit points – the equivalent of 224 study hours) and fulfillment of the requirements of the practicum, the student will be eligible to receive a specialization certificate in the didactics of Teaching Hebrew as a Foreign Language from The MOFET Institute's Online Academy.
