Hebrew Lessons

Taking Hebrew lessons can open up an entirely new worldview. Hebrew is a difficult language to learn but, when you do take the time to learn it, you will have access to a great deal of information about Hebrew culture that you simply cannot get without learning the language. Some of the challenges you’ll take on when you study Hebrew include learning how to write an entirely new alphabet and how to read in a different direction.

Generally, your first Hebrew lesson will consist of learning basic phrases. Learning Hebrew accents is one of the most challenging parts of taking any Hebrew course. People who first come into the Hebrew class who speak English will generally hear the guttural sounds in Hebrew in a very exaggerated way. This tends to make new Hebrew speakers pronounce things with too much emphasis. Over time, your Hebrew class will give you information and insight into how to normalize your speech a bit.

Taking Hebrew lessons does require commitment. This isn’t one of the languages where you will start noticing that many of the new words that you’re learning are very similar to words in your own language. For example, if you were to take a Spanish class, you would start figuring out very quickly that many of the words in English and Spanish are closely related. This is unlikely to happen when you’re taking Hebrew lessons. In fact, everything about this language, from its script to its syntax to the way it is read will likely seem exotic and interesting to you. If you’re looking for a way to really branch out, taking a Hebrew class is a great way to do it.

As you start to get a good mastery of the Hebrew language, you’ll find that learning new material comes more naturally to you. When you’re learning any language, the learning you’ve already accomplished feeds into learning more and more. As you progress with your Hebrew lessons, you should find yourself able to participate in conversations and able to read road signs and other basic information in Hebrew. Once you make this breakthrough, it should become a lot easier to pick up more and more of the language. Of course, the best way to pick up the language is to go to Israel and to immerse yourself in the language, the history and the culture of the Jewish people.
