See What People Say About
Hana Rotman
"Rosen School of Hebrew provides comprehensive learning experience in reading, writing, and speaking modern Hebrew."
"Level 5. After trying everything Hebrew I could get my hands on, I registered for this class and my wife registered for a different one. I’m very impressed with our instructor חנה/Hana Rotman. She keeps the class interesting and fun with Hebrew conversations about the topics, asking our opinions, and keeping everyone involved and up to speed. I also like the pressure of a final exam and potential credit through Hebrew U, because it’s 40 years since I’ve been in college. I’ve recommended this course already to several people."
"Our teacher Hana is excellent and the students all participate. It’s encouraging to see several like-minded people working toward the same goal, fluency in Hebrew."
