Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: When introducing yourself, it's a good habit to shake hands in Israel. If you don’t want to worry about using the right word for men or women, just say na'im meod meaning “Nice to meet you.”

Easy to understand and learn. I like that you slow it down to hear the pronunciation.

Shalom,


I appreciate your approach to teaching Hebrew. I was attempting to learn from Duolingo and soon found myself in over my head, having to look up words we had never covered in order to be able to do the translations. I love languages, but I think I need a more straight forward appriach such as you offer.


Lehitraot,

Carol

Thank you so much for this website. I have learnt to introduce myself in Hebrew with the correct pronounciation. I always had an affinity to learn this language and feel chosen by YHWH to learn it. Jehovah bless you and the good work you are doing to promote the language of His chosen people.
