Private Aramaic Coaching Program

What is the Private Hebrew/Aramaic Coaching Program? is, by far, the biggest and best website in the world dedicated to learning Aramaic in the context of the Holy Scriptures. We provide a wealth of resources to help you learn Aramaic, including Aramaic and Hebrew Bibles, a range of DVDs, Audio CDs, Workbooks, Study Guides and books. We have literally HUNDREDS of video lessons arranged in categories including the History & Background of Aramaic, the Aramaic Alphabet, Biblical Aramaic, the Aramaic Peshitta Old and New Testaments, and the Aramaic Targums.

These resources are comprehensive and ideal for those who are self-motivated and self-directed, and who want to systematically study Hebrew and/or Aramaic at their own pace, in their own time, and at reasonable cost.

On the other hand, some people desire to learn Hebrew and/or Aramaic at a much faster pace, under supervision, being motivated, and are able to put in significant time and effort to achieve their goals in a MUCH shorter time period than usual. Other people may have specific needs (such as wanting to learn certain passages of Hebrew and/or Aramaic in the Holy Scriptures) but they do not know how, or do not know where to start, or do not have the resources available to help them.

Other people may be interested in Aramaic, but they also have a strong interest in Hebrew.  In fact, over the years we have found that Hebrew and/or Aramaic together are often where people's interests lie. Some start with Aramaic, but then become more interested in Hebrew. Others start learning Hebrew but become more interested in Aramaic. Or maybe your interest lies only in Hebrew, or only in Aramaic - or a combination of the two, with some Modern Hebrew as well!

This is where the Private Hebrew/Aramaic Coaching Program can help! If you want to learn Aramaic only, or Hebrew only, or a combination of the two in a blend that you decide, then the Private Hebrew/Aramaic Coaching program may be exactly what you are looking for. If you need help achieving your goals, or if your goals are specific, and if you are willing to put in time and effort to make faster progress than you ever imagined possible, and if you know what you want to achieve, then we can help!

The creator of this website, Ewan MacLeod, will PERSONALLY work with you to define your goals and desires in connection with either Hebrew or Aramaic (or both). Ewan will understand where you are now in terms of knowledge and experience, then design a highly personalized and custom study program tailored JUST FOR YOU. Ewan will then PERSONALLY work with you to help you achieve your goals. There is nothing like it available, and it may be exactly what you need to attain your dreams and goals. Can you imagine how exciting it is to read the original languages of the Holy Scriptures and truly understand them? This can be a transformational and life-changing experience!

If you choose to participate in this Private Hebrew/Aramaic Coaching Program, Ewan will work closely with you each week to give you new resources as and when you need them, even if that means creating resources especially for you, to help you reach your goals, dreams and ambitions faster than you ever thought possible.

TracyDear Mr. MacLeod~ My name is Tracy and I have been wanting to learn Aramaic for a few months now. First, I wanted to learn Hebrew, especially since my second fave singer of all time is Ofra Haza. I heard the way she sings in Hebrew and I LONGED to speak it and sing in it like she did! :) Beautiful person and singer, I'm sorry I became a fan only a year after she passed. I watched a documentary on Aramaic on youtube "Is the language of Jesus becoming endangered?" and I fell in LOVE with the way Aramaic is spoken in Maaloula. So, I found on Memrise a lesson that teaches Maaloula Aramaic. I would one day like to be able to go from this Aramaic to Galilaic Aramaic ( the ACTUAL) dialect Jesus spoke AND I believe it's Steve Caruso that has the Website of Galilean Aramaic ( He recommends having an "aramaic" course background BEFORE getting into Galilean Aramaic as it's more difficult. So, I've had my mind set on learning the Assyrian Aramaic of Maaloula, then start to get into Galilaic Aramaic ( I bought his book in it "the Three Little Pigs" from Amazon as a motivator) . Then, I still want to learn Hebrew I would like to learn Syriac ( Syriac Aramaic) as well. I would love to one day visit Maaloula and speak in their Aramaic language! I'd love to visit Israel as well. I know Galilean Aramaic is more in the Palestinian region but just to learn the ACTUAL language of Jesus is motivating. :) I'm VERY much into Ancient Languages and I'm looking for Teachers for Ancient Egyptian and Ancient Babylonian.The latter came before Aramaic. I LOVE all these languages and hope to one day sing in them as I'm going to be starting up singing lessons again soon, perhaps the beginning of next year. Steve Caruso also has 2 other books coming out "Elementary Galilean Aramaic" with Exercises in reading and Comprehension and "The Galilean Aramaic Lord's Prayer" and the fate of the language of Christ. I'm looking forward to those. :) I'm on a fixed income so, I look on Memrise or other sites for classes that aren't out of my league to pay for. I just thought I would ask to see what your thoughts were on all this. Would you suggest Study Programs to start? I want to thank you for offering your services to people that REALLY want to learn Aramaic and Hebrew! there are so few teachers. Thanks so much for taking the time to read all of this. I just wanted to give you an overview of where I'd like to go with these languages. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks again! :) Tracy
JasonI am seeking to learn how to speak the language Jesus speaks to be able to talk to him in his language.
