This course provides students with a unique chance to improve their Yiddish speaking, reading, and writing skills. In addition to touching on key grammar points, we explore texts written by classic Yiddish authors such as Sholem Aleichem, S.Y. Abramovitsch, I.L. Peretz, I.B. Singer, and contemporary. The final grade will be determined according to class participation, short essays, and a presentation. This course requires proficiency in a foreign language.
