advanced level of acquisition, for Modern Hebrew. This course is
based on topics covered in the first two years of the Modern Hebrew
program at IUB as well as in the H300 fifth semester course. The
H350 course covers the essentials of Modern Hebrew grammar, and
offers skill practice for conversation, composition, and reading
comprehension. The course readings prepare students to work with
advanced literary and academic Hebrew texts.

This course is conducted solely in Hebrew. It offers reading
selections from a variety of advanced-level textbooks as well as
some Modern Hebrew literature, Israeli newspapers, Modern Hebrew
poetry and other materials. As such, students are familiarized with
various writing styles including slang, journalistic, poetic, and
academic writing genres. Listening comprehension skills are further
practiced and developed by exposure to Israeli media. Written
assignments, long term projects, and in-class presentations allow
students to master their Hebrew abilities while developing well-
rounded linguistic skills.
