Eretz @ WLS now offer the full spectrum of Hebrew Speaking Events, whether you're just starting out, have been chatting for years or if Hebrew is your mother tongue there's something for you with Eretz.
Note that this Meetup is identical to the other Eretz Meetup, we have to have two because Meetup.com does not support automatic scheduling of a Meetup more than once a month. The only difference is Kishkushim 1 has a leader while Kishkushim 2 is self-lead!
Eretz Hebrew is all about Modern Conversational Hebrew and has three groups:
If you know nothing, or very little (less than 25 words) and have a burning desire to converse in Hebrew. (Absolute beginners must join within the first 3 sessions of a term, see below for more information on terms).
If you are able to make simple present tense sentences, have basic reading and writing skills and know at least 25 words join us for some structured practice with our teacher, Adam.
If you can chat about politics, football or the weather then Kishkushim is for you. The first session each month will be curated by Eli, the second is a cross between a social club and a discussion group. Bring along something to watch or read, and then discuss it in Hebrew with like-minded people.
Of course every session is accompanied by good food, great wine and even better people. We have white boards, projectors, laptops and the Internet available for our use!
The evening works something like this, being informal it changes a little depending on the people present:
[masked]: Chit Chat (in English or Hebrew) and gather something to eat and drink.
[masked]: Break into groups.
[masked]: Break, back together for more chit chat and refills.
[masked]: Back into groups.
[masked]: Clear up and leave so that security can go home! You are welcome to continue to converse in one of the many pubs near by!
Eretz Hebrew is all about you, we welcome your feedback and offer you a chance to make every session what it needs to be for you. Our classes are informal, and you're welcome to switch between the sessions if you're feeling like a bit of revision with Beginners, or if you're feeling epic and want to chat with the pros in Kishkushim!
We run a 5 month term, the aim being that you move up a group each term - so with some hard work and plenty of enthusiasm you'll be in the conversation Kishkushim within a year! As a a bonus, each term ends with a graduation ceremony!
At each session we ask for a £5 donation towards covering our running costs. We don't wish for anybody to be excluded because of financial restrictions, so do get in touch if this is a concern!
