Yup, you read that correctly - FREE! At least, the basic course is free. There are add-ons at a subsidized rate, as well as physical course books that you can buy for a subsidized price to augment the free course.
This course is brought to you by the Digital Israel project, part of the Ministry of Social Equality. You do not need to qualify for services to sign up for the course - it should be open to everyone!
Happy studying and happy savings!
p.s. there are other courses offered as well, such as a spoken Arabic course for beginners, beginning in May. Sign up now if you're interested!
