This is the first term of the two-year Yiddish language sequence. This course offers you the opportunity to learn the basics of Yiddish grammar and to acquire basic reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. You will learn to talk about yourself and your interests, surroundings, friends, and family. You will also learn about the history, sociology, and culture of Yiddish and how Jewish life of the past centuries is reflected in the language. You will become acquainted with simple Yiddish texts from various times and places - a poem from a Yiddish children's textbook published in New York in the 1930s, Yiddish folk songs that have been sung in Eastern Europe for many years, stories from a school book used in Haredi schools in Israel, and more. Games and audio-visual materials will enhance the learning process.
