Frequently asked questions

How do I learn?

Learners are introduced online to grammatical topics and vocabulary through texts and videos.

They immediately test and deepen their understanding through exercises on the Hebrew text.

They can also keep track of their progress and observe, on a daily basis, how well they improve their skills as language learners.

Learners become highly motivated by engaging with the Biblical text from day one.

They begin right away to learn to read the first chapter in the beginning of the Hebrew text of Genesis. They get instant response on their practice from the text. When their answer is not correct, they learn from figuring out what they did wrong.

They monitor their own progress and can compare with the performance of others. They decide how well they want to master any particular subject. The Bible can offer unlimited practice through thousands of exercises.

It’s like a gym. Or a game.


It is up to you! The outcome depends entirely on the practice of each individual learner. The more you practice, the more you learn!

Many Bachelor students have passed a test on reading 30 chapters from the Hebrew Bible in only 4 months.  However, most learners will use a year or two to reach the Advanced level.

The best results are achieved if you study and practice at least a couple of hours a day.

You should try the Hebrew course for free. It is the only way to learn if you are able to learn through online practice.

Reduced rates are available for potential instructors in Africa or in collaboration with Partners.

We offer a Certificate of Performance for learners at a small fee if they want to document their level and achievement in Biblical Hebrew.

You can of course use this new learning method in addition to courses in a Hebrew programme at your university, seminary or academy.

In classroom settings all students have got average to top scores when they practiced well.

We hope to offer an online accredited exam for the Advanced level (40 US Credits/20 ECTS), but we depend on accredited institutions. We seek Partners who will collaborate with us to guarantee valid credits for local settings, especially in Africa.

Of course you can!
