Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

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.

The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to nearnative fluency. Hebrew Phase 3 includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completion of Phases 1 and 2.

  • The beginning lessons of Phase 3 offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You’ll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You’ll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and most importantly, you’ll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. You’ll be able to join in conversations effortlessly, confident of being understood.
  • In the next 10 lessons of Phase 3 your skills will show everincreasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you’ll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you’ll find yourself responding effortlessly, and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
  • In the final 10 lessons of Phase 3, you’re nearing fluency with agile responses, and a naturalsounding, nearnative accent. You’re able to utilize the language in subtle ways, and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Selfconfidence soars as you experience the language and culture; no longer as a foreigner, but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Hebrew and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Hebrew with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

      Comments about Hebrew (Modern) III, Comprehensive:

      Learning a new language is definitely improving my memory and thinking. I am on Level 3 with my chosen language and it is great to be easy to use daily during long car commutes to and from work. It makes the trips tolerable. I just have a plain radio in my car and would rather reinforce the learning of my chosen language than be bombarded by the same pop songs all the time. My only complaint is regarding the short conversation at the beginning of the lessons, that are rarely completely translated, even by the end sometimes. Most of the time all of the words are taught by the end of the lesson.I suppose they are used to keep us anticipating.

      Sometimes I am not able to discriminate subtle sounds in the words that are similar, such as (m/n),yet friends have told me that my accent is quite good.

        Comments about Hebrew Phase 3, Units 1-30:

        This course is very suitable for slightly advanced students of modern Hebrew. It is clear, organized and self-contained; a listener doesn't need to do anything else than to listen and repeat/answer questions (no book is necessary). All new words are repeated so many times that you will remember it, no matter if you have a good or bad memory. I used to go for 30 minute walks in the evenings with headphones, listening to the units and learned quite a lot. Furthermore, it was a nice time and I really miss it now when I am finished.

          Comments about Hebrew Phase 3, Units 1-30:

          I can't believe how well these CDs work. I'm really increasing my comprehension and my speaking! It's incredible. I listen and repeat on my 40 minute commute to work and back, often daily. Whatever the science behind Pimsleur is, it works. They've figured it out. You really feel like you can string together sentences and you are given the opportunity to learn to speak exactly like a native, as the enunciation is so clear, and they alternate a man and woman's voice on each CD so you hear the same phrases with two different voices at times, which is also helpful. I love my commute now!

          I reviewed several language instruction recording systems before settling on Pimsleur as the most enlightened, most effective. I am now on Hebrew III. I listen in my car.

          Comments about Hebrew Phase 3, Units 1-30:

          Very good at teaching grammar and correct sentence structure. Very helpful in learning to pronounce Hebrew words.

          I am about half way through level 3. The conversations however are very limited and narrow in their scope, for example telephone conversations, ordering in restaurants and business meetings.

          I also wish that more vocabulary was taught in each lesson.

          The readings for level three are too simple.

          I really like the fact that it is complete in itself and you can do it anywhere you go and at any time.
