Section: 01  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster and Certificates: Christianity Studies

In the second part of the Beginning Hebrew course, students will continue their journey to studying the Hebrew language, an old language that was dead in the 19th century and then revived into a modern language. Students will be introduced to all aspects of reading, writing, and speaking along with an emphasis on enlarging vocabulary, learning new grammatical concepts, writing short compositions, and further developing all language skills. Multimedia resources will be used to enhance listening and comprehension. Exposure to cultural material will also be explored through participation in the 18th Annual Ring Family Wesleyan University Israeli Film Festival 2025, which brings to campus film premieres of the most diverse and contemporary films. In addition to attending film screenings, students will meet and converse with Israeli film directors, cinema critics, and professors who are also native speakers over Lunch and Learn meetings. Participation in cultural events account for the additional 0.5 credit with a total of 1.5 credits for this course. This course counts toward the minor in Jewish and Israel studies.
