This course is offered as the third semester course of the Modern
Hebrew program. It meets three times a week. It addresses the
intermediate level. The course is based on topics covered in the
H100 and H150 courses of the program. As such, it is conducted
solely in Hebrew.
Following the first year courses, where basic sentence structures
are mastered, this course introduces the complex sentence structures
of Hebrew, as it focuses on the Hebrew grammar. To do so, it
introduces the conjunct system and its uses. The course provides a
solid review of the verbal present, infinitival and past tense
structures, while introducing the future tense of Hebrew. The course
focuses on the nominal system, by addressing some of its unique
issues, such as the construct state structure.
Students work on reading materials from the textbook as well as
other sources, such as Israeli newspapers, to practice their reading
skills. Students exercise their writing abilities, by writing essays
on various topics, throughout the semester. Students are expected
to present various topics orally, in class. Their spoken skills
continue to develop, when students work in small groups in class,
during most class sessions.
