HEBREW (F17)10A  LANG MENTOR PROGRAMCLAXTON, C.
The HLLP Hebrew Peer-to-Peer Language Mentor Program is designed both as a supplement 
to more formal language learning within the classroom and as a means for students not 
enrolled in language classes to maintain their language skills. Each language mentor will be 
paired with one to three mentees. Mentor and mentee(s) will meet for at least one hour each 
week and will engage in various activities conducted in Hebrew. These activities may include 
(but are not limited to) conversations in the target language; watching a film, television show, 
or news program in the target language; cooking a meal or snack that is typical of Hebrew 
culture; attending an appropriate cultural event, museum exhibition, or performance; 
producing a creative work (including dance) that is appropriate to Hebrew culture; listening to 
Hebrew music; going to an ethnic grocery store or restaurant, etc. All conversations revolving 
around these activities should be in Hebrew to the greatest degree possible. Weekly journal 
entries. One P/NP unit. Application required (see http://www.humanities.uci.edu/hllp/). 
Mentors are expected to have High-Intermediate to Advanced-level language skills 
(particularly oral language skills) in Hebrew. Mentors will enroll in Hebrew 10A after 
acceptance into program.
