A twelve-week course to learn to read and understand Hebrew.  Beginners will learn the fundamentals of Hebrew, its alphabet, vocabulary, and grammar.  If you know basic Hebrew, you can start at an advanced level.


In this introductory level course, you will learn to read Hebrew fluently and acquire a Hebrew vocabulary and a knowledge of Hebrew grammar.  Options to learn to write and converse in Hebrew are not available at this level.  The goal is to complete the first eight lessons in the textbook.  At the end of the course, you will be able to read and comprehend Hebrew sentences, use a Hebrew-English dictionary, and be familiar with many rules of Hebrew grammar.
