Julia Blum
"Up to now I have had excellent teachers. My classmates have been very supportive and the atmosphere has been very good. Not always easy but with the right commitment everybody can do it. Good lecture notes and slides and the quality of the software that is used is good."
"I like Ross's way of teaching, incorporating class member questions and opinions during class. Also we do not have anyone who wants to go on and on, as I did in the last class I took. "
"After studying biblical Hebrew extensively through e-teacher, it has been a delight sitting under the tutelage of Julia Blum as she expertly weaves the tapestry of the nuances behind the Hebrew concepts that are totally 'lost in translation' outside of the original language. Not only are these nuances astonishingly rich, they are supernaturally charged like no other language on earth. It is truly a 'holy' - separated, unlike any other!. I can't begin to express how much fun I am having in this course and I encourage everyone to start with the Biblical Hebrew courses so they, too, can dig deep and not miss the true meaning behind so much of the biblical text that is totally lost if you don't have the resources to uncover them. Kudos to e-teacher for preparing this wonderful course and finding such a brilliant instructor!"
