Each class will focus on a theme(s) – we’ll learn words related to the theme, then form sentences/dialogues with these words. We will take turns conversing with one another in freeform from the given vocabulary words and other words you might know; we will not be reading dialogues, but rather creating them.
This form of learning will enrich your vocabulary and confidence in the most active way of learning: speaking!
We’ll be using different sources such as Brandeis Modern Hebrew, and other advanced modern Hebrew textbooks, some poetry, short stories, and more.
