The Revival of the Hebrew Language
As a Jewish school with orientation to Israel the Hebrew language has an integral part of King David School.
Modern Hebrew studies are part of a whole complex consisting of various experiences from the days in junior school, through visits in Israel and up to the high school
Hebrew studies develop the language skills and give the student tools to read, listen, write and speak language. Hebrew studies are divided according to levels in order to allow better support for each student at their level.
The Modern Hebrew department is offering a range of levels in Hebrew.
Most of our students already have the knowledge of basic reading and writing at the end of primary school, However we offer support from the basic learning of the Alef – Beit , through acquiring the grammar and the use of the language, to GCSE and A-level courses.
