Israeli Slang Session with Ella

Thursday, October 14, 10:30 am

Join us for a little culture trip.

An eclectic mix of influences from Yiddish to Arabic can be found in modern Hebrew communication, especially in its slang. Learning slang is a great way to fit in with locals and develop a rapport: for anyone moving to Israel, or for those simply curious about colloquial Hebrew.
