Bersohn, Nehama Silver_nugget
[MDES W1517 ] Hebrew for Heritage Speakers I

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Bersohn is a FANTASTIC professor. After 12 years of Hebrew classes, I have learned more in one semester than I did throughout high school. Maybe even throughout K-12.

She is deeply passionate about Israel, Judaism, and the subject matter. She cares a lot about her students and is willing to do anything to help them.

She has an edge, which I really enjoy. She keeps class interesting and she keeps students on their toes.

Prepare yourself to actually learn stuff in this Hebrew class -maybe for the first time in your life... that's how it has felt for me.

I feel really lucky to be able to have her again next semester.

Perk: you get class off for Jewish holidays.

Workload:

15-30 minutes per night, and maybe an extra hour or two before a test. Nightly homework and probably 4-5 tests per semester. One final.

Be prepared that the final is during reading week!!
