Item Description...
Written by the core faculty of the Hebrew Program at Brandeis University, Brandeis Modern Hebrew is an accessible introduction to the Hebrew language for American undergraduates and high school students. Its functional and contextual elements are designed to bring students from the beginner level to the intermediate level, and to familiarize them with those linguistic aspects that will prepare them to function in advanced stages.

This volume reflects some of the main principles that have shaped the Brandeis Hebrew curriculum during the past decade. These include:

* an emphasis on the learner's ability to use the target language in all four skills areas: speaking, listening, reading, and writing

* an effort to contextualize each unit within a specific subject or theme

* exposing the student to authentic and semi-authentic materials (texts written by native speakers)

* exploring different elements from Israeli and Jewish culture in the language drills, reading passages, and in selections of sources from the Hebrew literary canon

The text in this edition comprises a short introduction to the instructor, 11 units, supplementary Hebrew proficiency guidelines, and a vocabulary list. Included is a CD that contains audio material for some of the exercises and an enrichment program linked to the text.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hebrew  Oct 21, 2008
The information is quite good and taught well. The problem is that the book is way too big. It should be several smaller books. I can hardly hold it to study from it.
Awful as a Self Study Guide  Sep 14, 2007
Perhaps this book is worthwhile if used in conjuction with a formal class, but if you're trying to learn Hebrew on your own, it is endlessly frustrating. It introduces words into reading exercises (for which there are no translations) that have either not been previsously defined or defined once 20 pages earlier. Time is wasted looking up words in the glossary in the back of the book. Moreover, vowels are not used after a word is introduced but before the word is truly learned. This gets particularly tricky when trying when a word is used in a differennt form, particularly with verbs.
Best Hebrew Learner Text Out There!  Jun 14, 2007
This book provides a step by step guide for learning Hebrew in a fun way. It is extremely well designed and planned, and was clearly written by someone who is an expert in foreign language instruction, and who also knows how to get learners excited about modern Hebrew. I recommend this book to anybody who wants to learn or teach Hebrew without any reservation. But it! You will learn a lot and fun discovering Israeli culture and Judaism too.
Very Poor  Feb 23, 2005
This is terrible. As previously noted, the book will fall to pieces within a month, so it doesn't even matter much if your copy is one of many which were printed with the spine on the left, as at least one batch has been. The vocabulary in the text is sometimes repeated at the chapter summaries, sometimes absent. The book contains a Hebrew-English glossary that contains about 70% of the vocabulary used, and there is no English-Hebrew glossary. Grammer rules are explained poorly, and there are virtually no redeeming characteristics that warrent a "real" edition. This textbook is wracked with typographical and conceptual errors, and the "pilot" edition should be a testament to its failure.
