Available spots


Each class we'll take a burning issue, a big scandal, a social struggle, or an event or a person that recently made a lot of noise - something that (at least some) people in Israel today care about. We will ask - why is it interesting, and what lies beneath the surface of the issue? Come if you want to know what's going on here, or if you're already updated and want to share your thoughts with others and listen to other perspectives, and most of all come to speak and hear Hebrew about stuff that actually takes place in Hebrew! This course bridges between structured Beginner Hebrew to the less-filtered world of Intermediate, helping you to be creative and improvise with Hebrew even outside of your comfort zone of everyday topics and giving you tools to express ideas and opinions in Hebrew. With discussions, watching video clips, and reading short texts from social media and the news, we will explore complex topics in a way that is still accessible for advanced Beginners/nearly intermediate learners.
