The course aims to further develop skills acquired on LEAP Hebrew 1 & 2. It extends the emphasis on communication and comprehension skills through the use of high-frequency language expressions to describe topics of personal interest, current affairs and specific themes. This will enable students to conduct brief oral exchanges related to limited specific topics or themes or give a short presentation or information about an event. It also further consolidates grammar already acquired, and enhances students’ skills in reading and writing by equipping them with a broader range of vocabulary to enable them to read and write longer and more complex texts

Learning outcome: Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

demonstrate a deeper understanding and knowledge of grammatical rules and language structure;

demonstrate competency in comprehension and listening through accurately extracting key information from written and audio sources on specific familiar topics related to personal interest and current affairs;

recognize and use known expressions and fundamental phrases used in everyday situations and be able to communicate orally in simple, routine situations and handle short social exchanges about familiar topics with reasonable fluency;

independently write short texts on a limited range of familiar topics using a variety of vocabulary and formulaic expressions.

By the end of the course, students should be able to perform at Level A2/B1 of the Common European Framework
