Learning Modern Hebrew at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Part 4)

IMG_0705שלום לכולם!❤️

I am pleased to announce that I have passed my Ptor / פטור exam (the highest level of Modern Hebrew exam at RIS, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) with an A+ (96%)! Now, if you have any Hebrew works that need to be translated into Chinese Mandarin / English, please don’t hesitate to contact me at lisiqi@fudan.edu.cn. I would be more than happy to help out with that 😀😎🤓

P/S: I still haven’t found time to update the learning materials for Level Vav (Upper Advanced), but I will do so as soon as possible. 😉

 

 

 

 

Israel: Learning Modern Hebrew at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Part 3)

❤️! שלום לכוללללללללם

I have just completed Level Heh with a final mark of 95%. The university is really strict about the attendance. Due to my application for work and residence permits in China, I had to be away from the class for 2.5 weeks, and I have thus lost 2.5% in the final grading 😭😭😭. Another 2.5% are lost in my mid-term and final exams. Luckily, my final grade is still an A+, and I should be happy about it 🙃🙂🙃 I will just work harder in Level Vav (the highest Modern Hebrew level available at the RIS) during the summer~

Anyway, here is an updated version of my Modern Hebrew learning resources: (more…)

Israel: Learning Modern Hebrew at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Part 2)

❤️שלום לכולם!

Here are some resources I have found useful in learning Modern Hebrew up to the Dalet Level (Lower Advanced):

1. Dictionary: Morfix is a free online dictionary that allows translation from Hebrew to English or vice versa.  You can type in any morphology of the Hebrew term, and the search engine will offer you the possible base forms and their meanings.

2. Grammar: Easing into Modern Hebrew Grammar published by the Hebrew University Magnes Press comes in two volumes, explaining almost every nook and cranny of Modern Hebrew grammar in a clear and logical fashion.
