Seminar on Yiddish Prepositions with

Ekaterina Kuznetsova

All these oyf, bay, keyn, fun… So short but extremely important words that help us put the words in a phrase together. Prepositions usually have many meanings and can be used in different contexts. This seminar, ideal for Yiddish for beginners will focus on the ones that are most of all confusing for English speakers, i.e. the ones that sound like English prepositions but have completely different meanings. Participants will be able to ask questions, and we will do a lot of exercises together!

*Number of tickets is limited to 20.
*You can get the recording of the zoom-session in case you cannot attend live. The recording will be available for three weeks.

Tuition: $30 for this seminar or $150 for the 4 grammar workshops (Prepositions, nouns, adjectives and syntax)

Early Bird: $25 for this seminar or $120 for the 4 grammar workshops (Prepositions, nouns, adjectives and syntax), a great start for anyone new to Yiddish for beginners.
