The sequence MODHEB 201, 202, 203 is a full year of intermediate Modern Hebrew designed to enhance the students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills in Hebrew. In addition, the course enriches the grasp of the fundamental structure of the language, and explores its practical communication via short texts, songs, newspaper articles, movies and more. In fall 2023, we will have hybrid course in which both synchronous and asynchronous formats will be used. Class will meet twice a week in person and once a week asynchronously with content offered online for eleven weeks and will complete textbook Shalom 2 & chapter 2 in our textbook - Shalom 3.

Course Information

The plan is to meet on Tuesdays & Thursdays at 9:30-11:20 am (Seattle time) in person in Architecture Hall room 160. Fridays will be used to review and work on online content or other projects asynchronously. 

Access to Canvas is necessary for completing readings and homework assignments and for earning participation points.
