The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn Hebrew
Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, learning Hebrew will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

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. If you’ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn’t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

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.

    My daughter moved to Israel and my conversational Hebrew had not been used in many many years....like 35 years . I needed a refresher but really didn't want to have to put a lot of time daily into it. I put maybe 25-30 mins a day in and am progressing very quickly! I love you guys!

      Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Levels 1-3 MP3:

      My wife and I made aliya last year and to prepare for our adventure we took all 90 lessons of Pimsleur. It was fantastic. When we arrived in Israel, we attended the 5 hour a day, 5 day a week Ulpan classes. We found that while Ulpan was great for reading and writing, Pimsleur was superior for conversational skills. Much of the vocablularly we learned in Ulpan we already knew from Pimsleur. If you are at all interested in learning conversational Hebrew, Pimsleur is a great way to start. We were so pleased, that I've been begging Pimsleur to expand this course beyond the 90 lessons it currently provides.

        Comments about Pimsleur Hebrew Levels 1-3 MP3:

        I've been through all three sets of Hebrew. I've even used it to teach classes with at our congregation. To help those who need visual input to learn, I typed up and printed out the list of words in English and Hebrew. For the Spanish speakers at church, who had to translate it to English and then to Hebrew, I had the word lists translated into Spanish. We used almost the full set of Unit 1.

        Not to brag, but I am able to speak better than others who have been learning and even teaching Hebrew for years. It really gives you confidence to actually speak the language.

          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.

            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.
