A Level Modern Hebrew at Hasmonean High School

Course description

Studying A Level Modern Hebrew will enrich students’ knowledge of the language beyond GCSE level. Learning Modern Hebrew will enable students to converse in Ivrit and is very practical for those that want to visit, study or live in Israel. Many of our A Level MH students who go to Yeshivot and Seminaries, are able to enter the ‘Hebrewspeaking’ streams.

Course content

AS level students learn reading comprehension and translation (Hebrew to English) texts in Jewish and Israel related topics such as society, history, the environment, health and lifestyle. They write a structured short essay / response to a problem presented to them.

A2 level students continue to learn additional higher level comprehension texts and translate from English to Modern Hebrew. They read material from Hebrew literature as well as learn about the Jewish and non Jewish communities in Israel. They will also learn the system of Israel Democracy.
