Yiddish 2B is an extension of Yiddish 2A. The central feature of both Yiddish 2A and 2B will be the further teaching of Yiddish as a living language, as a tool for both written and spoken communication. The course is designed for students who wish to improve their knowledge of the subject both in its literary and conversational form. The course will include use of non-literary texts and exercises to develop grammatical, syntactic and idiomatic mastery of the language. An additional component will utilise Yiddish literary texts of Australia as well as of other countries. Completion of parts A and B will prepare students to continue to an eventual major in the subject.
Upon successful completion of Yiddish 2 students will:
Short weekly assignments involving written work, oral presentations, dictation, comprehension and short essays - equivalent to 2500 words: 50% of the total assessment. Two hour examination of two hours duration: 50% of the total assessment
3 hours of lectures and 1 x 1 hour language laboratory per week
