What You’ll Learn
Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur’s Hebrew Levels 1 and 2.

In the first 10 lessons, you will 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 eagerly, confident of being understood.

In the next 10 lessons, your skills will demonstrate ever-increasing mastery of Hebrew. 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, you’re nearing fluency with agile responses, and a natural sounding, near-native accent. You’re able to utilize the language in subtle ways, and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Self-confidence soars as you no longer experience the language and culture as a foreigner, but as someone with a deepening insight into the Hebrew-speaking world.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Hebrew, to provide vocabulary and improve pronunciation. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Hebrew with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker.

The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few of his “secrets”:

The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts retention, and cements the word in your mind.

Core Vocabulary
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily increase your ability with every lesson.

Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.

Organic Learning
You work on multiple aspects of the language simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a living, expressive form of human culture.

Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no drills, and no memorization necessary for success.

Active Participation
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation = success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words easily, exactly as you do in English.

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.

Tech Talk
- CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player.

Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Level 3 CD:

This is great, so far as it goes. I usually do well with grammar and reading a language, but struggled to speak it. Pimsleur has changed all that. But I've completed the whole course and can't find anything half as good to follow it. It seems to be the only course which forces me to speak. Please, please, please extend this course to levels 4 and 5.

    Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Level 3 CD:

    I used the Pimsleur courses and loved them as it is the fastest way I know to build proficiency in a language. The only ting I find disappointing is that it only goes up to Level 3 while most other languages you learn to a much deeper level. I no longer feel lost or isolated in my second language however my depth of conversation is very limited. I so wish Pimsleur would take Hebrew to the next level soon before I am too old to benefit from it. Past that I can say it is the best method out there for picking up a second or third language.

    Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Level 3 CD:

    Listened to the course in the car about 1/2 hour every day. Needed to listen to each lecture at least twice. It was satisfying to learn new words every day and develop the building blocks for conversation. I found Pimsleur to be more convenient and found the teaching technique superior to other learning methods I tried.

      Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Level 3 MP3:

      My memory retention of aural information is bad. I have to get new information slowly and repetititively. Hebrew Phase 3 did that for me. I know a lot of Hebrew, but I lack a lot of words and I trip up on the grammar a lot. Hebrew Phase 3 helped me on that too. I could replay the conversations so I could pick up on the words I missed, that I knew should be there. The lessions help train my brain to the speed and "slurring" of the language. One word can run into another, and I have to tune in to hear all the words that were spoken. I intend to repeat the lessions again, since 80% fluency is not enough for me.
