This course meets four times a week and is offered as the second
semester course, in the modern Hebrew program. As such, it addresses
appropriate material for the advanced-beginning level. The course is
based on topics covered in the JSTU-H 100 course. The course is
conducted exclusively in Hebrew. Students are exposed to spoken
Hebrew, throughout class; they are expected to communicate solely in
Hebrew, with one another as well as with the instructor.
This course offers a heavy focus on the verbs in Hebrew. Thus, it
offers a practice of the infinitival structures of Hebrew as well as
a solid review of the past tense of the Hebrew verbal system. The
course also focuses on the structure of simple as well as basic -
nested (semi-complex) sentences.

The course uses readings from the textbook to work on reading
comprehension. Students use a set of CDs to work on listening
comprehension exercises. Writing skills are developed as students
write short essays on various topics. Speaking skills are exercised
daily in class. As part of the course, students prepare and present
short presentations on various topics in class.
