6 Briar Lane
Newark, DE 19711 USA
Israeli Hebrew for Speakers of English is a series of Hebrew
language textbooks designed by a group of linguists and Hebrew
instructors at the University of Illinois. The books are
by extensive audio materials and a "computerized workbook", both
available for free download from this website.
The series is designed with the following goals in mind:
- Instruction in Hebrew as the language is really spoken in
- Introduction of contemporary Israeli culture
- Gradual and highly controlled introduction of grammatical
- Inclusion of very extensive practice material
- Reading passages should have a highly controlled vocabulary
- Very clear summaries of grammar and vocabulary will appear at
end of each chapter
- Material will be suitable for college, adults and high schools
The series, published by Duben Books, consists of three
covering elementary, intermediate and advanced-intermediate
as well as a booklet that introduces the Hebrew alphabet. The
textbooks are used at major universities around the country, as
as in high schools and adult education programs.
