FA 2007
Credits: 3

Welcome to Beginning Yiddish!

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 folksongs that have been sung in Eastern Europe for many, many years, stories from a school book used in our days in some haredi schools in Israel, and more. Games and audio-visual materials will enhance the learning process!

Grading: Classroom Work: 30%, Quizzes & Homework: 30%, and Exams: 40% 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. I am always happy to meet with you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the class, or to give you additional help that you might need with the Yiddish alphabet, reading skills or anything else you feel you would benefit from.
