Detailed Course Description
This hybrid course combines the advantages of synchronous and asynchronous learning formats.
On the one hand, the course allows students to study at their convenience anytime, anywhere, and at any level.
On the other hand, it provides personal, recorded video lesson guidance and encouraging instruction by a live teacher from Ulpan-Or for each unit, emulating an actual lesson.
Students’ experience is similar to participating in a live lesson and being guided by a live native Israeli teacher. Ulpan-Or’s teachers are cherry-picked and extensively trained for delivering a fantastic learning experience to their students using Ulpan-Or’s proprietary methodology, materials, and structured lessons.
Students receive all the required interactive digital materials for the course at their level. These media-rich ebooks include workbooks, quizzes, exams, games, and other fun activities.
The contents and the assignments are delivered during the course using a predetermined schedule, allowing students to practice and internalize the new material.
Ulpan-Or teachers check the submitted assignments and provide prompt feedback.
Significant focus is on the spoken aspect, where students listen to the video and audio recordings.
An interactive guided repetition of new vocabulary – words and phrases, is provided.
Then, students and teachers assume different roles in the essential activity of acting out and practicing dialogues.
This is a great tool to improve pronunciation and the retention of the learned vocabulary.
The teacher on the video lesson outlines the tasks and assignments that the students need to perform daily (~10 minutes a day), assuring the best progress rate is achieved.
In the final step of each lesson, students are required to submit a recorded assignment (preferably video) of themselves acting out an entire new dialogue.
This assignment is checked, and the final score is given to the student.
