Before you know it, you’ll be reading Hebrew with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A PDF file containing the combined Reading Booklets to be used with the audio lessons is included.   

About the Hebrew Language

Hebrew, a Semitic language, is the official language of Israel. It was once considered a dead language with no native speakers, although it remained in use for liturgical purposes. Hebrew was revived as a spoken language in the mid 19th century and today is spoken by over 5 million in Israel.

      Comments about Hebrew Phases 1-3:

      I use Pimsleur while doing other things such as long commutes, bike riding or on treadmill. The great part is that it keeps drilling you until you can solidly recall what they've covered. The downside so far are that some of the sounds are hard to hear and it would help to be able to see what it's supposed to sound like and sometimes they answer too quickly.

        I am only on Lesson 10 of Level 1 (90 total lessons) and I feel confident enough to speak and understand Hebrew. The Language that seemed like Chinese to me is finally becoming second nature. LOVE IT!

          Comments about Hebrew Phases 1-3:

          If I had lots of free time, I'd look for a teaching program where no English is spoken because images and perhaps video are used to explain words. Or: minimal English. But I don't have free time so I wanted a program I could listen to while doing chores. Pimsleur has met my high expectations in making a language learnable and memorable even though a lot of translation is needed. I've had one month so far. I find the reading part light but on the other hand since I don't have time that works.

            Can't say a bad word. Very well designed to keep you moving forward and excited about your progress. Actually fun, and not a chore at all. My wife feels the same.

              Comments about Hebrew Phases 1-3:

              I am only on lesson 5, but love how it works. I have many other language tapes that are sitting gathering dust. Wish I had found the Pimsleur system sooner and I wouldn't have wasted my money on those other lessons.

              I look forward to each lesson and the ease of learning new words and pharses each day.
