A first of its kind innovation for the frum community: Learn one language and teach the other chavruta match.
Modern technology makes it so easy to find and access just the right partner match mutually beneficial to both sides. Perfect for those who’ve made aliya and want to boost their Hebrew vocabulary for their job, or just in general. Also, for those living in the U.S. who want to improve Hebrew skills, this is an easy, fun, inexpensive and effective way to do it. This innovative method allows those wishing to improve their Hebrew or English, to be matched up with someone who wants to improve their own skills in the opposite language.
Thus, a native Israeli who himself would love to learn English can help you make serious progress with a one-on-one learning program, tailored to the specific learning objectives and speed that you set. In return, your chavruta will benefit from your assistance by speaking to him in English! All this is at no cost, except for the initial chavruta-matching charge.
You’ll receive guidance and tips as to how to set up this dual learning/teaching process.
We believe that the best way to learn a language is by simply talking to each other about things going on in our life, conversation style. That’s the way we learned to speak when we were growing up, by speaking to our parents and friends…
That’s why a good “shidduch” between a Hebrew speaker and an English speaker, just talking to each other (or even writing to each other), can be a great platform for language absorption, without the need of doing any hard work! When you’re each learning, and each helping each other, the feeling of embarrassment from making a mistake- vanishes, as well as that feeling of “I’m causing him to go out of his way to help me”. Since you’re helping him, too!
The responsibility of monitoring the learning pace best for you, and keeping to the goals you set for yourself, is up to you. However, you’ll receive a questionnaire every few weeks, reminding you how to properly check whether your joint progress is satisfactory to both sides.
That’s a good question. We can only answer it if we know what kind of motivation, time and money resources are available to you. What we can tell you is that learning with a partner as part of an enjoyable sharing of experiences, conversation style, rather than learning in a strict framework, brings about quicker results with less input of time and effort
It may turn out that you feel your first partner isn’t ‘on your wavelength’. That’s why we offer 2 more chances, at an extremely low price, to switch chavrusas. We want to make sure you’ll be able to find the partner you’re looking for.
