Course description
  Amharic is the official language of Ethiopia and most Ethiopian Jewish immigrants in Israel. Even though Amharic is the official language and also a language which has preserved some of the original Semitic features, it diverged very much from most sister Semitic languages because of the influence of Hamitic languages. The course begins with the revision of some of the salient grammatical features of Amharic. Within the framework of the course the phonology, morphology and syntax of the language will be taught at an advanced level. Likewise reading of intermediate and advanced level texts and audio and video recordings in spoken Amharic will also be included.
Knowledge of basic Amharic including its script system is a prerequisite for this course.
Prerequisite: Completion of the course “Amharic for Beginners”
