This course is for continuing students who already have some experience with the Yiddish language.


We will keep exploring Yiddish and connecting to the cultural treasures that learning the language can unlock. Whether you are interested in Yiddish as the language of struggle, folklore, literature or your own family, this is a great place to start. 


Some prior knowledge is needed to take this Yiddish course and those who have done a little learning on their own, or heard a bit of Yiddish at home are very welcome. We’ll also explore songs, poetry, and people from Yiddish culture as we unpack some of the history and politics of the language and the reality of learning Yiddish in the present. 


This is a queer-inclusive class open to all, and course topics will be shaped by the interests of the students.


For students who are looking for a more advanced class, get in touch regarding 1-1 sessions or future class offerings.


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.
