Lecturers

Esther Adam

Hello! I am Esther, born and raised in Jerusalem. I have finished my studies with excellent marks. I started to study classical music at an early age and I have dedicated my life to music and opera singing. I got my degrees in opera singing and pedagogy. Lately, I finished my MA studies in Biblical Science at ELTE University. I am teaching in ICI for 7 years now. I am also translating and editing books in addition to my artistic and pedagogical work.
Why do I love to teach here? Teaching here gives me a feeling that I am closer to my homeland and I love to share the beauty of the Hebrew language with my curious and motivated students. I have been teaching Hebrew in the last 7 years to more than 200 students, and it makes me happy that I can see their progress and their pure joy.

Darya Agapitov

Shalom! I am Darya, born and raised in Moscow. I worked in tourism and movie production there. At the age of 25, after falling in love with Israel, I moved there to live. I have absorbed anything I could and deeply immersed myself in the culture. I mostly worked with kids that I really enjoyed. I also found my life's passion, which is aerial acrobatics.
I have started teaching Hebrew several years ago. Teaching makes me happy by guiding the way of my favourite language, showing its beauty and secrets - I take it as a present. While I am far away from home, teaching Hebrew is also a way to stay connected to what I love.

Hello! I am Vered, born and raised in Israel. I wrote my PhD in philosophy at Tel-Aviv University, and lectured in Tel-Aviv University and Haifa University. After moving to Budapest, I have engaged in teaching Hebrew as a foreign language and organizing Israeli Cultural programs. As a former director of the Israeli Cultural Institute, I'm now the Head of the Hebrew Language Center and one of their senior teachers, I am keen on sharing my knowledge and passion for the Hebrew language
