This course is intended for students who have studied at least one year of college-level Hebrew or its equivalent.

Students will expand their knowledge of Hebrew vocabulary and grammar, acquire intermediate-level communicative competence, and develop skills necessary for formal Hebrew composition. Prior to the start of class, students are encouraged to read Edward Horowitz's How the Hebrew Language Grew. 3 hrs. lect./disc.
