About Our Products:

 

What are the advantages of your teaching method?

There are numerous advantages to our newspapers, including:

  • Anyone can learn Hebrew; the newspapers are suitable for children and adults.
  • Our newspapers are great teaching aids for Hebrew teachers or for the independent reader.
  • As opposed to conventional Hebrew study books, our content is fresh and relevant to current affairs, holidays, etc.
  • Learning Hebrew with Bereshit or Yanshuf is fun, interesting and highly effective.
  • You learn Hebrew while staying connected to Israel.

 

What is the best way to learn Hebrew with your newspapers?

We suggest you begin with “Bereshit,” our very easy and unique Hebrew newspaper. Nothing like it is available anywhere else in the world. “Bereshit” will teach you the Hebrew basics (the alphabet and punctuation) you need in order to continue improving your Hebrew skills.

Start with the short and easy articles (see the text level indicators inside “Bereshit”) and use the dictionaries to learn new and more challenging words.  Then, read the newspaper again using the accompanying CD.  Repeat this process a few times while looking at the newspaper. Afterward, try listening to the CD without the newspaper. Soon enough, you will begin to recognize words and understand the Hebrew you are hearing. At your own pace, you will learn to read, understand and pronounce Hebrew properly!

 

What is the difference between “Bereshit” and “Yanshuf?”

“Bereshit” is geared toward beginners who want to learn Hebrew from the most basic level. It includes English translations alongside the Hebrew text. “Yanshuf” is geared toward more advanced readers, with the English translations provided on a separate dictionary sheet. Easy-Hebrew articles and exercises are included in each issue, and the CD narrator reads all of the articles slowly. Both newspapers are accompanied by dictionaries for new and difficult words.

 

Who writes the articles for your newspapers?

Our newspapers are written by experienced journalists, skilled Hebrew teachers, and linguists.

 

Are there Hebrew language exercises in “Bereshit” and “Yanshuf?”

Yes, you will find a selection of challenging and entertaining exercises in both newspapers. Visit our website to see samples.

 

Does a CD accompany each issue?

If you order a subscription with a Print + Audio CD, you will receive it with each issue. Our online edition also includes audio files.

 

Are “Bereshit” and “Yanshuf” politically or religiously aligned?

What am I likely to find in your newspapers?

What does the CD include, and is it mandatory to purchase it?

The CDs offer an article by article narration of the entire newspaper. Reading at a reasonable pace, Israeli narrators emphasize correct pronunciation. It is not mandatory to purchase the CD subscription; however, if you are interested in speaking Hebrew correctly and want to understand Hebrew-speakers and improve fluency, it is highly recommended.
