About the course

This course is ideal for those who are at the advanced beginner level. Employing textbooks written entirely in Yiddish; Khanan Bordin’s Mit vort un maysim and Yidish af yidish by David Goldberg, the class will focus on more complex grammatical structures as we read and discuss texts by classical authors. Watching videos about famous figures in Yiddish culture will further develop listening competence. All course materials will be provided digitally.

Price:  $25 per class or $230 for the full 10 weeks.

U.S. residents have an option to pay by check to avoid digital transaction fees. If you are interested in this option, please email: info@yaaana.com
