Naama Harel

Dec 2016

Professor Harel's class is a really interesting look at the world of Hebrew literature through various forms of media. She is a very kind person and really wants you to do well in the class. As someone who has not been in a formal Hebrew class since graduating middle school, she provided me with an opportunity to continue developing my language skills through a humanities approach to language. I loved reading all of the selections and watching various TV shows and movies. My skills as both a writer and critical thinker (in Hebrew) really improved throughout the semester. The pieces covered a range of interesting topics that both expanded our vocabulary, and gave us some more insight into Israeli culture. Professor Harel was also an incredibly approachable professor who was always willing to answer any questions about the course, be it about content or fixing grammar mistakes for the exams. I highly recommend taking this course, even if you have placed out of Hebrew or have finished the initial 4 semesters. There is still a lot you can gain from this class.
