Polina will be teaching Yiddish song repertoire and Yiddish choir as part of this course: The Golden Peacock (Goldene Pave) Yiddish Song School will also teach a daily session of Yiddish through song.

Discover JMI’s famous full immersion courses in Yiddish Language, Song and Culture for people of all ages, levels and backgrounds, where even complete beginners learn to speak, read, write, sing and even dream in Yiddish in a week.
As well as hands-on classroom teaching, it also features an extensive cultural programme of music, theatre, poetry and lectures from a world of Yiddish past and present.

Here are a few reasons why this promises to be a week not to be missed this spring:

  • This is the only opportunity in the UK to immerse yourself in the deep and inspiring world of Yiddish culture for man intensive 5 days through language, literature, song and film with interesting and like-minded people of all ages and from all backgrounds.
  • You will have the privilege of working with some of the UK and Europe’s top educators and performers. No matter what your level in Yiddish whether a beginner or a budding linguist, professional singer or amateur enthusiast, you will benefit from the width and breath of programmes on offer through the week, both day and night.
  • The language and song schools run parallel during the week. Yiddish, Yiddish Song and Klezmer courses all run concurrent to each other, making for an authentic immersion in Yiddish culture.
  • The programme is based at SOAS, the heart of Ethnomusicology and the study of world cultures in the UK, at Russell Square in the heart of central London. What better chance to combine meeting an eclectic bunch of Yiddish enthusiasts with exploring one of Europe’s finest capital cities.
  • Any questions? Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the JMI team for extra information about the course, accommodation advice or financial support.
