I have had individuals try to teach me to learn to read Hebrew and found that they really had any idea as to what was involved. Right out of gate this book from the beginning it starts with the basics of Hebrew in the first chapter. I learn more in the first chapter than what others thought they new.
I will progress through all 10 chapters and move into the next book called "The First Hebrew Primer third edition by the authors Simon, Renikoff, and Motzkin.
No, I haven't but enjoy the presentation that is with the audio portion that is available with this book through Amazon.
This is a book that teaches the basics on how to read Hebrew and as for me I experience great joy to finally begin to understand what the Hebrew language has to offer.
I was looking for a concise and logical introduction to basic Hebrew before beginning my first year in Seminary. This is just the course! The lessons are brief, well thought out and progressive. You find yourself learning the Hebrew alphabet, pronunciation, and block printing almost without realizing it. There's nothing easy about learning a language, and Hebrew is no exception. But this has to be one of the most most enjoyable experiences I've had. To get the most out of your investment in time, the student should purchase both the book and the audible companion. I am now moving on to the follow up in the series: The First Hebrew Primer, Third Addition. What a joy!
The narrator was good, but should give more time when reading exercises. I prefer Hebrew with the transliteration instead of the characters; it is easier for me and more enjoyable. That's how I have learned 3 Romance languages. Thanks.
First audible should provide these in common formats to down load! Second, there is no easy way to navigate where you want to go in this book.
What has turned me off is that audible.com has not formated these in mp4 or something that will work with other than mac.
Since I don't use mac or itunes, I will never purchase from audible.com again.
