This course emphasizes skills necessary for proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and conversational Hebrew. It presents new grammatical concepts and vocabulary through texts about Israeli culture and tradition, as well as popular culture and day-to-day life in modern Israel. In addition to the textbook, course material includes newspapers, films, music, and readings from Hebrew short stories and poetry. The course starts a transition from simple/simplified Hebrew to a more literate one, and sharpens the distinction between different registers of the language.
