The University of Manchester is offering places on distance-learning undergraduate modules in modern Hebrew.

Level 1 (MEST 10210) assumes no knowledge of Hebrew and will start by teaching the alphabet; some previous knowledge of the language (knowing the alphabet and being able to read a little) is acceptable.

Level 2 (MEST 20210) is a post-beginners’ level language course which builds on the language and skills acquired in Beginners’ Hebrew course. Level 3 (MEST 30210) is an intermediate level language course.

The courses will be taught in a mixed teaching environment for classroom-based students alongside distance-learning students. Course units will run for 11 weeks in Semester 1 (18 Sept 2017 – 28 Jan 2018) with a Winter break (no classes) and 11 weeks in Semester 2 (29 Jan – 8 June 2018) with an Easter break.
