Summary: A three-volume course that picks up where most Hebrew instruction leaves off. Designed specifically for English-speaking students in high schools, colleges, and adult education classes. Effective even when students meet no more than one or two hours a week.
The only preparation students need is the ability to read Hebrew characters and to recognize the basic Hebrew words they learned as beginners.
To clear this entry level, an Introductory Pri ...show moremer is now available. Designed for students who have had no previous Hebrew instruction or who require a quick review. Teaches Hebrew phonetic reading and cursive writing. Introduces the Hebrew vocabulary assumed in Level 1 of the program.
Among the many noteworthy innovations: Varied reading selections, ranging from stories with contemporary themes to Hasidic tales, midrashim and biblical narratives. Lessons that begin with a vocalized Hebrew text and end with the same passage in unvocalized form, training the student to read with equal confidence whether vowel points are present or not. Explanation of grammatical concepts through comparative analysis of English linguistic structures.
