Ulpan-Or’s online Hebrew newspaper, E-Tone®, is an innovative, interactive news digest published on a weekly basis to aid with the studying of Hebrew and gaining access to the authentic Israeli media.
E-Tone® comes in three levels: Low-Intermediate, High-Intermediate, and Advanced.
The main objective is to help E-Tone® subscribers to significantly improve their Hebrew in a short time, and eventually be able to access regular Israeli written and broadcast media. The weekly online Hebrew newspaper E-Tone® includes the latest actual news items broadcast by the Israeli media in Hebrew words and Hebrew phrases.
Each item is processed using Ulpan-Or’s unique Hebrew learning RLA – Rapid Language Acquisition methodology, and the items are presented in audio and video files, including accompanying text that highlights specific vocabulary.
A full English translation of each item is provided to help subscribers practice their Hebrew words and Hebrew phrases. E-Tone® items address different aspects of life in Israel and around the world, delivering fresh, up-to-date, relevant news in Modern Hebrew.

Item #1 is usually related to the latest important developments in Israel
Item #2 is usually related to the latest important developments around the world
Item #3 usually covers culture, science, sports and other interesting subjects from around the world
