Description

The most unique feature of this program is the way Biblical tense and mood are imparted. The prefix form is the first verb form to be presented, with its wide array of possible translations into English tenses: Students’ attention is then drawn to the clear-cut cases of the prefix form which are preceded by the “ past”1; only then, tenses and moods of the less commonly occurring verbs in the prefix form, not preceded by the “  past”, are discussed with their varied possible interpretations. Students are offered a simplified model for interpreting verb tenses and moods while always considering context. Similarly, other verb forms are presented (suffix form in Vol. I, and the remaining verb forms in Volume II). A considerable part of the   program is dedicated to the qal stem. Much of what is thoroughly learned through the qal is transferable to the other stems, thus allowing for faster and easier learning (Vol. II).
