Language Learning Plugged-In: Online Hebrew Lessons with WizIQ
To have another language is to possess a second soul.
They are calling it a ‘paradigm shift’ but I prefer ‘inevitable transformation’. The internet has had a tremendous effect on the way education is imparted and received. We have access to more resources than ever for each and every aspect of learning and teaching. But Language Learning is perhaps one of the most deeply metamorphosed dimension of education. Numerous apps, umpteen videos, a sea of blogs and a multifarious list of languages to choose from; language learning has become more of a ‘need in vogue’ than just a petty hobby.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
One language that you might be interested in learning this year is Hebrew. The official language of the State of Israel, Hebrew is possibly one of the most ancient languages still spoken in the world. The original language of the Holy Bible, Hebrew has come a long way from a Classical version, to being almost dead for many years, to a recovered Modern version, spoken today by Jewish communities around the world.
Although it could be a little difficult to learn Hebrew, but with Lori Forman Jacobi and her online course on WizIQ, it becomes surprisingly easier to learn the language.
Lori is a native speaker who has been using WizIQ to teach Hebrew for the past year. She chose WizIQ because “unlike other online conference platforms like Webex or GoToMeeting, WizIQ is built for educational needs ”. Lori’s organization tutors 3rd-8th grade students one-on-one. She particularly admires the whiteboard and all its useful and easy-to-use tools, that facilitate her classes.
WizIQ is a virtual paradise for delivering online Hebrew lessons. Here is why:
1. WizIQ Virtual Classroom’s Whiteboard offers a flexible, feature-rich experience for visual teaching, a key requirement for teaching Hebrew, since the Alphabet (Aleph-bet) is pictorial.
2. Since WizIQ supports over 12 languages including Arabic and Hebrew (right to left script), teachers can easily write all they want in Hebrew.
