This is the second term of the two-year Yiddish language sequence. You will now continue to improve your speaking, understanding, reading and writing skills, and study more complicated grammatical structures and idiomatic expressions. You will expand your vocabulary and learn to talk about ideas and emotions. We will start reading simple folk tales and modern Yiddish literary texts: poems by Itsik Manger, Kadya Molodowsky, Avrom Reyzen and short stories by Sholem Aleichem, Moyshe Nadir and others. We will continue the class correspondence and you will be required to write weekly compositions, just like last academic term. A project report is due again at the end of the academic term, which can be an individual or a group project, and can vary from a research paper (in English about any Yiddish topic) to a performance of a scene in Yiddish or presenting some Yiddish food along with the recipe in Yiddish.

Grading System: Classroom work: 30% Quizzes & homework: 30% Exams: 30% Project: 10%

As you can see from the grading system, active classroom participation is very important, as are daily homework assignments — always due on the next class.
