HEBM 3100 - Beg Hebrew Lifelong Learners      

Hebrew for Lifelong Learners
This three-week course combines a curriculum designed specifically for Lifelong Learner students with the rigorous immersion environment of the Middlebury Language Schools and the Language Pledge. Our focus will be on all four language skills. The immersive environment allows learners to strengthen their speaking abilities, as well as encourages rapid mastery of Modern Hebrew grammar and the foundation of the language. By the end of three weeks, it is anticipated that students will be able to create a short narrative about themselves as well as ask questions so they can learn about other people. We will document each student’s journey and share it with them. This level is for students with very little or no previous classroom instruction in Hebrew.
