These pages are devoted to resources for learning Hebrew. Different folks learn in different ways and require different sorts of help - dictionaries, grammar, phrases, pronunciation. We will give you a bit of each, from resources we have created and from online resources (many of them free and pretty good) as well as books you can purchase. Of course, you will find it EASIER if you have a real live teacher or study group where you can practice - or if you learn a bit and then spend some time in Israel.
