Mashritho: Syriac Summer Course 2014
August 4–29
Beth Mardutho: The Syriac Institute
Venue: Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center, New Brunswick, NJ

Beth Mardutho (The Syriac Institute) in collaboration with Rutgers University (Department of African, Middle Eastern, and South Asian Languages and Literature) will be holding two intensive Syriac summer courses from August 4–29.

Course I: Introductory Syriac.  Students with no prior experience in Syriac will learn introductory reading, writing, grammar, and should be able to translate introductory texts by the end of the course. A hybrid method of teaching will be used drawing from both traditional reading/writing and immersion (conversational) models. Classes will be held Mon–Thursday, 3-4 hours per day. Students are expected to spend the rest of the day doing homework and preparing for the next day lesson.

Course II: Intermediate-Advanced Syriac. This course is geared towards students who have already done Syriac and would like to dig deeper into the grammar and nuances of the language. A hybrid method of teaching will be used drawing from both traditional reading/writing and immersion (conversational) models which will allow the student to get a better command of the language. Intermediate-advanced texts will be read.
