Yiddish, a rich language with Jewish culture and literature, was the spoken language used by Ashkenazi Jews around the world for over 600 years. In the post-holocaust era, and during the establishment of the state of Israel, the use of the Yiddish language was diminished, although it is still used by some orthodox communities worldwide.
Today, the Yiddish language is enjoying its well-deserved resurrection with many activities by cultural centers worldwide, including Israel, who have undertaken to preserve the Yiddish language through lectures, Yiddish theater, Yiddish course and much more.
eTeacher is proud to take part in the important mission of reviving the Yiddish language with two Yiddish language programs that allow students from all over the world to get closely acquainted with the culture, history, literature and unique humor associated with the Yiddish language.
eTeacher’s virtual classes are conducted via live video conferencing technology. Students can see the teacher through a web cam and can talk with the teacher and other class members using a complimentary headset & microphone provided by eTeacher upon registration. Lesson material is presented via a multimedia application on each student’s computer screen.
eTeacher’s Yiddish faculty is made up of highly experienced and certified teachers, academically trained in various Jewish studies and the Yiddish language. All of our teachers undergo special training for online teaching, and ongoing evaluation by our students.
eTeacher lessons are conducted online in small groups (6-8 students) or in private sessions (one-on-one). Classes are scheduled based on students' locations, time zones and personal preferences. Group classes are offered in one of two intensity levels, depending on the needs of the group.
