121, 122 Elementary Hebrew
These courses teach modern Hebrew as spoken in Israel and are designed for students who are interested in developing oral and written Hebrew skills. The courses are helpful to those who are interested in deeper knowledge of Jewish culture and wish to improve their knowledge of Hebrew for religious studies. HEBR 121 and 122 are also helpful in preparing students for travel in Israel. HEBR 121 is designed for students with no previous Hebrew background and students who have learned to read phonetically without comprehension. HEBR 122 is designed for students who have completed HEBR 121 or have equivalent knowledge. (Formerly HEBR 101-102.)
