"This new introductory textbook is far-and-away the most interesting, innovative, and promising development in Hebrew education that I have seen... Its strength lies in its integration of multiple modes of presenting Hebrew to the learner... This variety in modes of presentation helps teach students the range of communicative skills they would need to function in everyday life in Hebrew." -Daniel Lefkowitz, Assistant Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures, University of Virginia

Modern Hebrew is good if you have time to spend. If you want to hear anything, you'll have to visit the website, otherwise you'll have to spend your time deciphering the Hebrew letters from the start, and personally, although I can read some words already, I always like to have some kind of confirmation of the sounds, so English characters to describe the pronounciation would have been welcome here. I don't think I will be using this book now for this reason. Additionally, this book really seems designed and structured to be used in a classroom, but may not be ideal for someone wanting to learn by themselves with no live teacher support.
