Academic Program: Seven-week Session

Students at the School of Hebrew will be enrolled in one of five levels according to their proficiency as determined by placement tests and prior experience with Hebrew. Students who wish to take an additional course in classical Hebrew will need to have attained at least the “intermediate- mid” level as defined by the ACTFL proficiency guidelines.

All courses in the seven-week program provide proficiency-oriented instruction in listening, reading, speaking, writing, and grammar. Students will engage in activities that enhance presentational, interpretive, and interpersonal modes of oral and written communication.

Daily activities normally include four to five hours of classroom instruction plus additional work in computer laboratories. Schedules, texts, and staffing are subject to change. All students in the School of Hebrew will engage in extensive reading and listening activities using the texts from the invited lecturers, novels, short-stories, plays, movies, media items, and journalistic accounts.
