Aviv writes: “The teaching experience I have in the Ulpan helped me overcome some of my fears and to understand the nature of how I express myself and how I can pass my love for the Hebrew language to my students. I used to stutter as a kid, so I have some understanding about the difficulties in expressing yourself and how overwhelming and challenging in can be. Verbal communication is basic for being part of society and I try to pass on my knowledge and confidence in overcoming this obstacle.” Aviv holds a degree in statistics and philosophy.
