Mi-Po Le-Sham Part 1

A Companion Text for "Hebrew from Scratch Part 1"


Teachers who use the textbook Hebrew from Scratch part 1, have long felt a need for additional exercises and assignments to provide students with more practice opportunities.

Previously, their only options were to either create new supplemental exercises, or adapt existing ones from other beginner textbooks. Now comes to their aid ‘Me-Po le-Sham’ (“From Here to There”), a companion text to volume 1 of Hebrew from Scratch that follows the textbook chapter by chapter, providing a variety of exercises intended to enrich and reinforce the vocabulary and grammar topics that are introduced in each chapter.

Exercise formats range from verb review drills, to completion and selection sentence level tasks, to cloze sections with accompanying word banks to open-ended functional writing tasks.

The practice materials in Me-Po le-Sham have been tried and tested in the classroom over the course of many years, and have been proven effective in developing greater fluency and accuracy in written and oral language. The plentiful and easily adaptable exercises can be used for individual work outside of the class (homework) or, for individual or small group practice in class (where the “flipped classroom” model is applied).

The book includes solutions.

"... The exercises in Mi-poh le-sham are noteworthy first of all for their wide variety, both of form and of content. They include numerous and diverse opportunities for beginners to practice writing in cursive script, along with structured elementary drills in transformation from singular to plural, verb conjugations, noun-adjective agreement, use of numbers, and question formation... Indeed, like Ivrit min ha-hathalah, Mi-poh le-sham stands out for its authentic Israeli cultural feel. This quality is noticeable not only in its use of contemporary language but also in its evocation of recent events, including the 2011 social protest movement [housing protest in Tel Aviv]... Another praiseworthy feature of the book is its attention to differences in word usage between Hebrew and other languages. Particularly notable in this regard is an exercise...that asks students to make distinctions between verbs that beginning users often confuse, such as yada/hikir, amar/diber, and holekh/nose'a." - Higher Hebrew Education Vol. 19, by Ronit Engel (UPenn), May 2017
