Learning Hebrew

You've spent many hours reading up on the ancient history of the Roman Empire and eventually have decided to visit Israel to see all the monuments and cultural heritage for yourself? Great idea, Israel is a wonderful place and worth a visit no doubt out about it!

The first thing you will notice on arrival is that Israelites speak "surprise" Hebrew! So it would be a good idea to at least get a grasp of what people are talking about. With the ability to speak Hebrew you will enjoy your stay so much more. Tour Guides at important archaeological sites usually speak English well, however if you approach them in their own language (don't worry about not speaking Hebrew perfectly and making mistakes) you will see a different, more positive attitude towards you.

The revival of Hebrew language as a mother tongue was initiated by the efforts of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda (1858-1922) (Template:Ivrit). He joined the Jewish national movement and in 1881 immigrated to Palestine, then a part of the Ottoman Empire. Motivated by the surrounding ideals of renovation and rejection of the diaspora "shtetl" lifestyle, Ben-Yehuda set out to develop tools for making the literary and liturgical language into everyday spoken language.

Hebrew is a fun language to learn and because there are many ways how to do it(by book, course, online, etc.) we thought it might be helpful to collect some interesting and useful information regarding how to learn the Hebrew language.
