"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
I really like this program and I have tried many because it requires that you stay focused and talk back. I have studied Biblical Hebrew in the past so I am able to catch it quickly but I believe this is the best spoken Hebrew program I have come across and plan on completing them all.
I went through the whole Pimsleur Hebrew (1, 2 and 3) and I it is a very efficient method to unlock speaking difficulties as well as oral understanding.
However the course does not provide with sufficient grammar explanations (especially with regard to the verbs), and the reading material is too poor.
I highly recommend to start by an alef-bet and then go on with pimsleur + a book for reading skills (Ora Band or Ester Raizen are excellent to get familiar with the reading in hebrew).
I took French in high school. I didn't have good study skills and it was very hard. I felt like I wasn't a 2nd language learner. But if you committed to following the instructions. (Listening & repeating). Then you've got it. Go at your pace but do it daily and you'll be surprised as I was how quickly you learn.
Yes. I am learning Biblical Hebrew and have found this to be very helpful. There is a lot of crossover.
"Learning a new language is never easy"
Learning a new language is never easy however this collection definitely helps.
Hebrew was never going to be the easiest for a native English speaker but this collection has me well on he way to exceeding my expectations.
Presented in a way that really does help you understand the structure and methods for creating new phrases and not simply re-iterating what you hear.
