Intermediate Yiddish (YID 203)


Classroom-based or distance learning course administered through Genesis University. 

Genesis University, Miami, FL; authorized instructional sites, or approved proctor sites.
April 2010 - Present.
Instructional delivery format: 
Hybrid course/exam
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: fulfill the objectives for Elementary Yiddish (YID 103) including increased comprehension and vocalization of Yiddish words; proficiency in translation; further skills with conjugation of verbs, prefixes and suffixes; a vocabulary of a minimum of 500 words; synthesize skills and write brief composition (personal, responsive, etc.); and compose responses to aural exercise using brief, but complete sentences.


This intermediary course is built on the skills of the introductory Yiddish course, where a framework was provided for developing language skills in four areas: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. This next level moves students further along the language line, continuing with the development of the abilities to converse and read more fluidly using vocabulary and grammar skills learned in the elementary courses. There is particular emphasis on verb usage and vocabulary building, and expanding the conversation base. On a cognitive level, intermediate skills include a more detailed study of morphology, syntax and discourse, building upon the basic reading vocabulary and skills acquired in introductory Yiddish.

Credit recommendation: 

In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 8 semester hours in Intermediate Yiddish or Germanic Languages (5/10) (5/15 revalidation) (11/22 revalidation).
