Hebrew I Online provides an interactive and fun introductory experience for students who have had some beginning exposure to basic decoding and writing in Hebrew. Students will meet twice a week for a live online session to learn and review the material. In addition, a special website will be available for students to log on at any time for learning and review. The course focuses on the development of all language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). Students will learn grammatical terms and principles such as pronouns, adjectives, gender and number agreement, prepositions, roots, numbers, special expressions, and the different categories (Gzarot) of Bynian Pa'al in the present and past tense. Students will read texts that reflect Hebrew and Jewish culture, including a weekly selection from the Siddur (prayer book). Topics will include: home and school, food, family life, and the daily schedule. Live webinar sessions take place on Sunday and Thursday evenings, 8:00-9:00 PM, EST. Make up sessions due to the Jewish holidays will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm EST: Sept. 5, Sept. 19, Oct. 3, and Oct. 10. (This course provides 6 Undergraduate credits)
