Modern Hebrew is the spoken language of The State of Israel. As such, Modern Hebrew has all the features of a live language and the language is part of a vibrant culture.
The Modern Hebrew program starts from scratch as students gain vocabulary and grammar that enables them to read, write, listen, and converse in Modern Hebrew. Along with language learning, the students are also exposed to Israeli culture. Throughout the courses, a variety of topics will be covered in your classes such as:
Modern Hebrew has its own club, MEDABRIM, which meets weekly to socialize and practice conversing in Modern Hebrew, as well as having fun group activities such as cooking Israeli food and watching an Israeli movie.

MEDABRIM: The purpose of this organization shall be to offer a casual and social atmosphere in which individuals interested in the Hebrew Language can practice their skills, at their level, and learn more. This organization will promote the use of spoken and written Modern Hebrew both on campus and in the community at large. Members will be encouraged to utilize as much Hebrew as possible during organization events, though they will not be obligated to speak exclusively in Hebrew. In fact, Hebrish (or Engbrew) (the mixing of Hebrew and English) will be encouraged. The main point of this organization is not necessarily to learn Hebrew (though a lot of learning will occur) rather to practice and improve the Hebrew that one already knows in a non-stressful and fun environment with a strong focus on communication. We believe that in this atmosphere the participants will improve their Hebrew proficiency
The SILC Attaches Club is a club that brings all languages and cultures from SILC together. People are able to learn about different cultures in a fun way when studying a language. Understanding different cultures is such an important attribute to have, and it is one you can obtain through SILC Attaches. This club creates community events, outreach projects, and plans fun get-togethers.
The ability to speak another language opens up more opporutunities for scholarships and fellowships. Take a look at our SILC scholarships. ASU also offers an extensive database for you to search through and find the right ones to apply for.
