Modern Hebrew

Level 4

Learning Hebrew isn't as hard as many think, not when you learn slowly and consistently using the "Hebrew in Hebrew" method used in Israel.

Course Description

During this intermediate course, you will begin to be exposed to interesting elements of Israeli culture, by reading about different historical places, figures and communities. You will also learn:

  • 300 new words
  • Verbs in future tense
  • Increase knowledge of syntax: adjectives, conditionals, complex prepositions, developing complex sentences

We will expand your understanding of Israeli culture by reading literature, including poetry. These topics will then be used to expand your speaking ability as we use them as fascinating discussion points to increase your ability to express yourself.
