Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes - with Pimsleur it's that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. Hebrew Level 1 Lessons 21-25 builds on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension and on learning to speak Hebrew.
This is a wonderful course. It takes you by the hand and guides you slowly but surely all the way not only to understanding, but also to mastering everyday conversations in Hebrew. The method focuses on the spoken form of the language. You do not learn the Hebrew alphabet, and you do not read or write in the language. But you do get excellent training in listening and speaking. You acquire those skills by practising half an hour each day. You do not need to go to any pains to repeat the new words. You just pick them up from conversation fragments that keep repeating themselves in a well calculated pattern so that you memorize everything effortlessly. You come to the stage when you practically engage in conversations without realizing you are speaking a foreign language. I recommend this course with all my heart.
Of course, once you master the oral aspect of the language, you have to find the resources for developing your writing and reading skills elsewhere. When I find out for myself what the best way to achieve that is, I will ... let you know.
