Hebrew is at the core of our Jewish studies program and has been part of the teaching at The University of Melbourne, Australia’s number one university, for more than 60 years.

Our Hebrew language program offers courses in Modern Hebrew from beginners to advanced, so you are bound to find the right level for you.

We keep class sizes small and our students learn not just Hebrew, but the rich cultural heritage and history that accompany this special language.

We are the only university in Victoria that offers Hebrew language.

You can take Hebrew as a breadth subject as part of your bachelor degree or as part of a major in Hebrew-Jewish studies.

If you are not a student at The University of Melbourne, you can still take our Hebrew subjects.

 

Here is a list of our Hebrew language subjects:

 

 

Beginners Hebrew A:

 

This subject assumes no previous knowledge of Hebrew and will introduce you to the skills of reading, writing and conversing in Modern Hebrew. In class we start by learning the Hebrew alphabet, and basic vocabulary items. You will be quite amazed how students start talking from day one and how by the end of the semester students obtain a basic proficiency in Hebrew reading, writing and speaking.

Intermediate Hebrew C:

In this subject students develop and build the skills of reading, writing and conversing in Modern Hebrew. The subject is available for those who did Hebrew at school for a few years but did not continue up to the VCE level or for those who completed Beginners Hebrew. Students begin with a review of vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing and speaking. Students also and read short stories, write at greater length and extend comprehension and speaking abilities. This is the perfect subject if you want to pick up Hebrew after years of not practicing the language.

Students read a variety of the best Hebrew short stories and poetry, look at journalistic pieces from Israeli newspapers and magazines, and watch and analyze some of Israel’s most popular films.
