DU's Hebrew language program offers modern Hebrew language courses on all levels. Emphasis is placed on internalizing the language and practical usage. Teaching methods range from traditional classroom instruction and conversation practice to utilize audio and video materials.
Hebrew language courses expose new learners to a series of comprehensive exercises that move students from the mechanical, to the meaningful, to the communicative. Class sessions are individually designed to introduce and drill grammar and syntax (mechanical), interpret texts and recognize speech (meaningful), and engage in dialogue and written expression (communicative). Through grammatical instruction written and verbal exercise, oral review, and regular homework, students will gradually acquire language fundamentals and increasing language competency. Elementary Hebrew classes offer a clear path towards language acquisition, while intermediate and advanced (advanced courses are offered as Independent Study) tutorials in Hebrew will improve and strengthen basic skills.
