Gonen, Illan
[MDES W1510] 1st Year Modern Hebrew and [MDES 1513] 2nd Year Modern Hebrew

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Illan is the perfect combination of knowledgeable and kind, patient, and energetic. He is more than willing to meet with students outside of class, and genuinely wants his students to learn. I have taken Hebrew with him for years. He fosters a sense of community and camaraderie while still maintaining control over the class. It is truly a pleasure to take Hebrew with Illan (both 1st Year and 2nd Year). He is committed and intelligent and has been one of the best professors I've had here.
