Ot Azoy! Yiddish Crash Course, London, UK, Aug 6-11

Ot Azoy! Yiddish Crash Course Sunday 6-Friday 11 August

KlezFest is preceded by Ot Azoy! (6-11 August). Ot Azoy' means 'This is the way' and it really is the way for beginners to advanced students to learn to read, write and speak Yiddish quickly and easily in only one week in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Includes intensive tuition and conversation sessions with expert tuition from Peysakh Fiszman of New York, Sonia Dratwa-Pinkusowitz of the Buber Institute in Brussels and Lily Kahn under the Direction of Helen (Khayele) Beer of University College London. Learn Yiddish also through song with exquisite Yiddish Singer Shura Lipovsky from Amsterdam and through Yiddish films selected and introduced by Barry Davis of London. For complete beginners to advanced students in four levels. Beginners will be taken through the Hebrew-Yiddish alphabet (much easier than it looks), will learn some every-day vocabulary and a generous helping of grammar, so that by the end of the week you will be able to string together your first sentences in Yiddish! Intermediate and advanced Yiddish speakers will be given more challenging texts and grammatical lessons and will get lots of opportunities to converse in this extraordinary language. Who says Yiddish is Kaput? This will be the 5th JMI Yiddish Crash course.
