Primary Instructor:


The course, which builds upon HEBREW 102, focuses on the acquisition of proficiency and communicative skills. This course requires significant investment of time outside the class and assuming an “inverted classroom” environment where classroom time is dedicated exclusively to the activation of skills. The acquisition of cultural literacy will be an integral part of the curriculum throughout the semester, and students will write short compositions daily.

Translated into plain language: You will be expected to do a lot of learning on your own, in preparation for class, where we will practice and activate what you have learned. At the end of the course you will be expected to feel reasonably comfortable in every-day situations and in any environment that is defined by native speakers of Hebrew, be it in conversation, watching TV, reading newspapers, surfing the web, texting, chatting, writing letters—anything you can think of. You will have some difficulties, and will not express yourself perfectly, but you will be able to get by in most situations.
