English for Hebrew speakers

Hello, I want to open a new course to teach English to Hebrew courses. Duolingo opens new courses based on demand and willingness to contribute, so I want to know how many of you are willing to help me in this endeavor :).

Hi Itay, the current course will be reversed once it's stable. :-)

June 25, 2016

When you do start working on the reverse course, please inform me, as I would really like to contribute

June 26, 2016

It's not a "new" course, just the interface is being translated.

June 27, 2016

So, any news on when the "reverse" course will be done or how someone might help to make it sooner? I see Israeli children around me using Duolingo's Hebrew course as a way to learn English, which is better than nothing, but sometimes silly (e.g., they don't get to hear any English pronounced - and sometimes they get exercises like typing a Hebrew phrase they hear ;-)). Would have been so much better if they could use the reverse course. Since all Israelis learn English, the reverse course could have a large number of users.

No, it's up to Duolingo, not up to us. Probably not before the current course is stable.

im learning the english course for japanese speakers to learn japanese!

September 1, 2017

So now it is stabled. Will you make a reversed one?

As a native Hebrew speaker who unsuccessfully tried to complete the 'Hebrew for English speakers' course, i would highly recommend against reversing the course over creating a new one.

The reason being that current Hebrew course content is simply not up to par with other DL courses;

The words and sentences aren't well curated/planned for a HSL/ESL course, Uncommon, even obscure words are taught instead of the ~2000 common ones, sentences are badly chosen, which leads to misleading/unhelpful learning experience and overall isn't a good implementation in the Duolingo platform.

I agree to some extent. We rushed to release it into beta. We're working on removing/adding sentences and words. Don't forget, this is the 2nd longest course on DL, so naturally it was the most difficult to compile.

I'm really hoping for a hebrew for russian speakers. ^_^

June 25, 2016

I'd love a Russian for Hebrew speakers one, you absolutely need some Russian knowledge in Israel

June 26, 2016

thats true

September 1, 2017

Than request it.

It might be done if enough people vote for it.

March 16, 2017

This can really happen. Lots and lots of Russians reside in Israel, you just need 1 to pick it up

I volunteered two days ago, i sent a request for the incubator.

June 26, 2016

What is the status on this? Can we help make this happen? We have many Hebrew-speaking kids yearning to use this to ramp up their English skills. Thank you.

In the meantime, if your kids can read English already (e.g., are in 4th or 5th grade), you can tell them to try the reverse course (Hebrew for English speakers). My kids love it. But of course, it would be better to have the non-reversed course.

February 27, 2017

I can't help with the course since I'm a total beginner in Hebrew, but I would definitely like to take this reverse course once it's available. So תודה רבה in advance to those of you offering to create it.

February 25, 2017

is there an estimate when English for Hebrew course will be available?

December 25, 2017

Is there any update on this course? I would love it for my kids...

June 12, 2018

Not even sure how to work process here works but it can be super cool to add some stuff here for sure for english for hebrew speakers!

June 25, 2016

On the flag next to your profile you can go to add a course, then at the bottom of that page there is an option to contribute to a course

June 25, 2016

Hi! I'm more than happy to dedicate my time and mind to this endeavor! I think that there's a lot of Hebrew speaker who will enjoy learning English using Doulingo.

How can we make it happen?

February 7, 2017

I would like to help you build this course

March 5, 2017

I too would love to contribute to the Hebrew to English course. I tried applying for it in the incubator I think around two years ago, and never received feedback. I also tried to follow the guide to request it but either the forum structure in Duolingo is very convoluted or I'm out of touch with the times. Even getting to this thread/forum took googling even though I tried navigating beforehand (maybe because Hebrew isn't a language I'm learning/learning from?).

May 18, 2017

I will gladly help.

July 15, 2017

When you say when the current course is stable, what does it mean?

September 14, 2017

Happy to help supporting English for Hebrew speakers!
