Yale University Press is happy to announce that the intermediate-level
Yiddish textbook Yidish af Yidish: Grammatical, Lexical, and
Conversational Materials for the Second and Third Years of Study, by
David Goldberg, is available once again. Published in 1996, the book
was unavailable for the past several years, but is available again, as
of last week.

Written entirely in Yiddish, this innovative and accessible language
text provides opportunities for intermediate level students of Yiddish
to improve their conversational skills, grammar, and vocabulary. It
includes numerous written exercises designed to clarify difficult
language problems, as well as conversational exercises that invite
role play and discussions of readings from Yiddish literature,
folklore, and the social sciences.

The book is available in paperback and has a list price of $44.00. The
book can be purchased through your local bookseller or distributor,
from Amazon.com or other online retailers.
