Learning to Speak Like a Local
Prerequisite: Bet+ or placement test
This course is designed to help people who have completed some or all of level Bet+, and wish to improve their speaking, reading, writing and grammar skills. The course will improve your mastery of verbs in all tenses. It will be an introduction to the causative form of verbs as well as additional passive verbs.
The Advanced Bet course will also enrich your vocabulary through discussions about current events while engaging with your fellow students on the dilemmas facing Israeli society today (such as LGBTQ rights in Israel and MIA soldiers). We'll also learn about the notable Israeli figures: the Israeli spy Eli Cohen and Miriam Peretz, a bereaved mother to a fallen Israeli soldier. We will also watch a short movie about homosexuality in the IDF.
During the last week of the course, students will be required to take a test in order to qualify for the next level, Gimmel and continue their Hebrew studies. They will be graded on their oral and written work and based on their in-class effort and on the test.
If you feel that a more concentrated course with more frequent classes suits your needs, you can join one of our Intensive courses, taught in a more compact time frame. These run over two weeks, where you will have daily classes to immerse yourself in the language.
*All courses are held at our comfortable and inviting Tel Aviv ulpan, and include a workbook specially developed by Aviv Bertele and access to a vocabulary app tailored to your class level.
Limited to 8-12 students per class
