I know Hebrew and want to keep up my skills, but Im not really interested in Hebrew literature. Can we just read the newspaper and talk about current events?
A. Journalistic Hebrew is an important register in the language, and several of our courses work to develop the skills necessary to read the Israeli newspapers. However, the goal of the Hebrew Program is the development of critical skills in understanding language, literature, and culture, all of which are important for the academic study of Israel or for extended stays in the country. For the development of critical skills in Hebrew, you need to engage all levels of the language. We make every effort to offer a myriad of topics that will be of interest to the students. But each advanced course focuses on the critical study of its topic. If you can read, write, and talk about advanced concepts in class, you will able to do just about anything in the language.
