TTEARROH1E Language Course: Hebrew
The Religious Roots of Europe
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
Teaching: week 36-47. Allowance will be made for the compact seminar in Rome for students in their first term, week 38-39.
Paper is to be handed in January 24; question will be received on January 23.
