The best part is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning.

What You’ll Learn
This program includes all of Hebrew Levels 1, 2, and 3. With this program you start from zero, first learning survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to a high-intermediate level of speaking and understanding Hebrew.

Every lesson contains an introductory conversation and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension. By the end of the program, you’ll have gained 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.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Lesson 30 for each Level. These lessons, which total about three hours, are designed to give you practice sounding out Hebrew and then to help you progress to reading for meaning. They also provide extensive additional vocabulary. 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 Levels 1-3 MP3:

    An amazing method of learning a language. My wife and I both used all three levels of this course and were very impressed. My wife went from zero experience with Hebrew to being able to get basic tourist type needs met after just 90 days of study with Level I. We have since done all three levels and our Hebrew is very good. I've even had native speakers who were stunned that we learned our Hebrew with Pimsleur Courses on CD's. The only thing that I would change is to off more than three levels of Hebrew. It would be nice to continue studying with the Pimsleur programs beyond Level III.

      Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Levels 1-3 MP3:

      I've listened to the entire program - the more advanced lessons, at least twice each. I find this an effective method and hope they decide to continue the series. I'd especially prefer having the advanced lessons with less English, gradually fading in more directions in Hebrew.

      Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Levels 1-3 MP3:

      This is a great product, but not a stand alone product. You must also have some sort of written text material where you learn a fair amount of words and structure. But book learning never seems to teach you how to speak. Having the pimsleur program as a compliment really cements one's skills with the language and helps with the musicality of speech as well as with (and more importantly) the understanding of the spoken word.

      Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Levels 1-3 MP3:

      We have had our Pimsleur program for a little over 2 months now, and going through the lesson at least once a day. My hope is for a lesson mastered each week.

      There are many things to love about this product...the constant review, the practice to lose an accent, and the speed with which you learn to respond. I can also open Pimsleur on my phone, my tablets, laptop and computer, making it very portable.

      Yes, it's expensive, and I wish it was less...but you can't say it doesn't work if you apply yourself.

        The packaging is vastly improved over that of 10 years ago. The recordings are uniformly of very high quality and the speakers are clean in their presentation. I can find nothing to critic.
