I have to call this goal complete. I can read biblical hebrew (with vowels) proficiently. It was easy. It took practice, but I had a good teacher and my classmates were a joy to be with. I practiced a lot on my own and it paid off.
I love this goal and am happy I did it! 20 months ago
My first language is Portuguese, which is very similar to Latin and, to some extent, to French. Even English, the one to stand a bit apart, was somewhat easy. But Hebrew is quite a challenge. “No” vowels, complete different letters and the writing is not what we are used to. At all. I’m still at that annoying level when you perceive yourself as completely stuck. I hope that changes within a year. 22 months ago
I’m using Welcome to Hebrew as a self study course, it contains 30 lessons. At one lesson per week, I’ll be done in April 2013. Today I started lesson 1. 23 months ago
On vacation in the Galilee, “Israel”, I think this is a good start. I brought along a “learn it yourself” Arabic guide to learning Hebrew 23 months ago
