Exercises and Grammar for Advanced Students
עברית סוף הדרך
This book of exercises is designed for advanced students studying for their proficiency test in Hebrew according to the curriculum at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
In section 1 you will find exercises that combine syntax and verb conjugations. The goal of these exercises is to combine all that was learned in previous levels, with the addition of new and different topics and vocabulary that is learned at the highest level. At this level of learning, the focus is integrating previously learned topics in the context of articles and texts (adapted from newspapers and journals), rather than on, reviewing previously learned topics in isolation, as is done in lower levels.
In section 2, you will find exercises organized according to topic. In this section, we guide students in a systematic deeper concentration of the grammatical topics (complicated syntax and highly irregular verbs) that are most challenging for most students and require further practice.
In section 3 we introduce “unseens”, articles or texts with missing words for students to add; the primary objective of these exercises is to for students to hone their ability to understand the larger context of the text, rather than to focus on vocabulary or grammar per se. These exercises invite an integration of all that the student has previously learned, both actively and passively: everything from vocabulary to grammatical technicalities.
All exercises in the book are adapted from newspaper articles and texts on a wide variety of diverse and current topics – from the arts to history and technology – carefully selected to engage the advanced learner and acclimate them to the Modern Hebrew writing style.
The book includes answers to all the exercises (including suggested answers to the unseen passages), making it ideal for self-study as well as classroom use.
