4.0 out of 5 stars Hebrew made interesting, 20 Jan 2004
This review is from: Modern Hebrew for Beginners: A Multimedia Program for Students at the Beginning and Intermediate Levels (Paperback)
I, like most Jews, learned to read Hebrew for the purposes of prayer and could read Hebrew reasonably comfortably but could not understand what I was reading. Having made some trips to Israel it was soon apparent that while I was comfortable with my prayer book Hebrew, actually speaking it and understanding it are totally different! This book reminded me of the basics of the language (basic grammar etc) that I had learned at a young age but also introduced me to phrases and words that you hear in everyday Hebrew. If you have access to a PC and the Internet then you can access resources over the net (including videoclips etc). This made things a lot more fun and I feel that I have actually learned something via this book. Have I learned to speak Hebrew fluently? No, but I have developed more confidence and feel that I could handle a day-to-day exchange without too much embarassment!
