Learn Yiddish

Yiddish Instruction

As an instructor of Yiddish, Dr. Turtletaub has taught the whole gamut of students ranging from a lovely eight-year-old girl to an 87-year old man, whose love of Yiddish keeps him going!

Dr. Turtletaub tailors her classes to the desires and abilities of her students. Examples of past and current students’ goals include learning how to:

Read and/or speak Yiddish in general
Read a specific book or document in Yiddish
Speak Yiddish with a Polish dialect
Become a professional translator

To join Dr. Turtletaub’s class or take private lessons, email her at doctorkf@rcn.com and put “Yiddish Instruction” as the subject title, or call (847) 675-3335.


“Excellent in relating to students!”

“This class should meet twice a week, not once.”

The course was terrific; wonderful teacher: knows so much about language/linguistics/delightful person.

Excellent, enthusiastic; makes learning Yiddish a joy.

I’d recommend the class highly and tell my friends, Enjoy!

Teaches with great enthusiasm.  Excellent, warm, supportive.

The teacher is excellent.  Her knowledge of the subject and her ability to convey it sensibly are evident.  She uses a variety of materials and methods and makes learning enjoyable.  She has a fine sense of humor—a dynamite teacher.

Class and assignments go at a good pace for the class, and the homework is generally enjoyable to do.

We are grateful to you for your two lectures.
