Hebrew language study:  First semester completed.

My brain is definitely looking forward to slowing down for a little while.  This class has chewed up just about all my free time for several months.

My youngest son has developed an interest in learning languages recently. A man in our congregation was raised in Europe, and speaks many languages as a result. I think that has inspired my son. I was thinking tonight that I should have him try downloading some podcasts for his I-POD.

Is he about to get immersed in Mandarin?

I am glad you stuck to it and have nearly finished---hope you got what you wanted out of this course. I am still just struggling along with Spanish.

Looney said...

Dee Ice Hole, I still have at least two semesters to go. It will be quite a headache!

How good is your Spanish?

Dee Ice Hole said...

Very poor but I am still working on getting better.

Shalom Looney,

Congratulations: you have survived the first semester ;)!

Now you will be able to relax a bit, eh?

Cheers

Max, there is a bit of mental relaxation, but I haven't taken a day off from reviewing vocabulary and trying to read a few verse. I have the summer to push ahead, then the next semester begins in the fall.

I need to get one of those Jewish hats to make the study more effective.

Looney,

You do well to review the acquired vocabulary. You already read a few verses (at the end of only one semester)? Impressive...

"I need to get one of those Jewish hats to make the study more effective."

LOL LOL the black hat (it has a name, which I can't remember right now - I think it is in yiddish) or the kippah?

Have a great weekend, man!

My son will be attending an international school where he will be studying in english, but will have a chinese class as one of his classes. Unfortunately, he isn't happy about the move, and says that he refuses to learn mandarin. I think once he gets there, he will change his mind. Right now he is interested in Russian, Arabic, and French.
