In this course taught mainly in Yiddish, you will build on the grammatical knowledge acquired while attending YAAANA’s Intermediate I Yiddish class series or a similar Yiddish course. This class is for experienced learners who want to deepen and enrich their knowledge of the language. Each class will have time dedicated to conversation, reading, and grammar. We will review basics and learn advanced grammar topics such as periphrastic verbs, conditional mood, passive tense, momentary aspect of verbs, complex syntax, and more.
