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. JSTU-H 150 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, matching
each such verbal form to its present form counterpart. The course
offers an introduction of the past tense of the Hebrew verbal
system, and focuses on the structure of simple as well as basic-
nested (semi-complex)sentences, covering the word order options that
such structures allow in Modern Hebrew.

The course uses readings from the workbook, in order to develop
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 in class, on
various topics.
