Learn a year’s worth of Hebrew this summer!

Hebrew-FlashcardsPopular Hebrew instructor Hadar Khazzam-Horovitz is back this summer with Intensive Elementary Modern Hebrew (MODHEB 105)—a chance to earn a whole year’s worth of language credits in 9 weeks! By the end of the summer, students will be able to hold a basic conversation about everyday topics and compose and understand simple written materials.

A past student said about the course: “My Hebrew class is the most diverse group of students I have ever had at UW. Yet each student seems to have a personal passion for the language. The class is small, which means that there’s no place to hide—an amazing thing when you are in a language course. Hadar seamlessly tailors the lessons to each student’s strengths and needs, and goes out of her way to be available for questions or assistance. The class has been a great experience for me.”

In 2016, the class meets from June 20-August 19, on MTWThF from 9:10-12:30pm. Find out more about the course here, and visit the UW Summer Quarter webpage for more information on how to sign up for classes as a summer-only student.
