TTEARROH1U  Language Course: Hebrew

Volume 2017/2018
Education

The Religious Roots of Europe

Content

From Scratch to the Bible. The course is a 10 ECTS crash course in biblical Hebrew. You will be trained in basic Hebrew grammar, enough to make you able to read biblical texts such as Genesis and the Book of Psalms by the end of the semester.

The course is taught as e-learning, including weekly conference calls via Skype. It will taught in the 'flipped classroom' style, meaning that you will watch online video lectures as part of your preparation for class. This means that we will not have to use time on lectures in class, giving students more time to having their queries cleared up. The lectures and textbook are found here: http://ehrensvard.dk/?Hebrew

Time period
Teaching: week 36-47. Allowance will be made for the compact seminar in Rome for students in their first term, week 38-39.
