By promoting and teaching a variety of languages, including those that are endangered or minority languages, we aim to raise awareness about the political importance of linguistic solidarity. Yiddish is one of the many languages we teach, and like several other languages, it has become a non-territorial language spoken in various regions across the world, without being limited to a single country.


If you are a working student, or have a non- traditional schedule, you are welcome to learn Yiddish under our one on one instruction mode. The course is designed for anyone who would like to explore and connect to the cultural treasures that learning Yiddish can unlock. If you specially need to to learn in a less distracting environment, this is definitely your course.

Whether you are interested in Yiddish as the language of struggle, folklore, literature or your own family, this is a great place to start. This is a queer-inclusive class open to all, and course topics will be shaped by the interests of the students.

The course is taught by Esther (they/them עז/זים) who is based in Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. Esther completed an MA in Applied Linguistics to learn more about second language acquisition, best-practice pedagogy and language revival and has worked for many years helping people (re-)connect to Yiddish. They know learning a language can be a challenging process and are dedicated to creating fun, creative learning communities that support students to make real progress towards their Yiddish goals. Esther also produces the educational podcast Proste Yiddish.
