Hebrew

Like any other language, Hebrew is embedded in broad historical, political, cultural, religious, sociological, and even geographical contexts. Understanding these interrelated contexts is needed for language mastery, especially in the more advanced levels where the politics and poetics of language are often discussed. Our culturally- and historically-informed approach to language instruction is indispensable for understanding the histories and cultures of the Jews. Trained in Jewish history, Professor Nizri aims to make the contextual aspects of the language visible and accessible and integrate these aspects into the students’ learning process.
