Description

Written by the core faculty of the Hebrew Program at Brandeis University, Brandeis Modern Hebrew is an accessible introduction to the Hebrew language for American undergraduates and high school students. Its functional and contextual elements are designed to bring students from the beginner level to the intermediate level, and to familiarize them with those linguistic aspects that will prepare them to function in advanced stages.

This volume reflects some of the main principles that have shaped the Brandeis Hebrew curriculum during the past decade. These include:

* an emphasis on the learner's ability to use the target language in all four skills areas: speaking, listening, reading, and writing
* an effort to contextualize each unit within a specific subject or theme
* exposing the student to authentic and semi-authentic materials (texts written by native speakers)
* exploring different elements from Israeli and Jewish culture in the language drills, reading passages, and in selections of sources from the Hebrew literary canon

The text in this edition comprises a short introduction to the instructor, 11 units, supplementary Hebrew proficiency guidelines, and a vocabulary list. Included is a CD that contains audio material for some of the exercises and an enrichment program linked to the text.
