Néstor H. Petruk
"I would recommend anyone interested in learning biblical Hebrew,or any of the biblical course's here. The teachers,administration and advisors are awesome. Or modern Hebrew, the language is so amazing, it is difficult to learn,but so worth it when you start seeing just how amazing the Hebrew language is "
"I've always learned lessons best with interaction with the teacher and other students, and audio-visual input. I feel this is necessary because you may think the answer is one thing that turns out to be another. The many forms of words in Hebrew or Aramaic, especially in the verbs is so important, outside input is very important for true understanding."
"I have loved every minute of my study time with IBS. The professors are top notch. It has given me a good foundation for further study. Thank you"
