Biblical Hebrew likes to reuse the reusage of a verb to emphasize things. The last bit of work for the class was completed earlier this week. What a relief! Just one semester remaining for this Biblical Hebrew sequence which I hope to finish in the summer. Meanwhile, what to do? I picked up some Modern Hebrew learning lessons from Pimsleur that I can listen to while commuting. These seem to be working out quite well. Much of the grammar and many of the words are the same as for Biblical Hebrew. My commute takes 30 minutes one way which is the same amount of time as a lesson. The usefulness of this program is that it forces me to quickly answer questions in Hebrew and work on pronunciation while also reinforcing much of what I already learned. Learning any language takes a lot of persistence.
