This course is offered as the fourth semester course of the Modern
Hebrew program. It meets three times a week. It addresses the
advanced-intermediate level. The course is based on topics covered
in the H 100, H 150 and H 200 courses. As such, it is conducted
solely in Hebrew. The course offers a thorough review of the
foundations of grammar in Modern Hebrew. The course offers a solid
review of the verbal as well as nominal systems of the language.
Students work on reading materials from the textbook as well as
other sources, such as Israeli newspapers and internet resources, in
order to practice their reading skills. Students exercise their
writing abilities, by writing essays on various topics, throughout
the semester.

The course offers an introduction to the Israeli media, as students
work on brief excerpts from Israeli tv broadcasts. These provide an
opportunity for students to work on their verbal skills. The class
sessions offer many daily discussions and a few in-class
presentations, both collaboratively and individually. By being
immersed in the language, students prepare themselves for any
special-topic advanced-Hebrew course as well as any literary work in
the language.
