Why Learn Hebrew?

Learning a language is about expanding your horizons and getting to know different cultures around the world. Hearing other languages spoken can be a pleasant experience that will make you feel different, almost exotic. It also gives you an opportunity to learn about other people’s experiences without having to travel around the world themselves.
Hebrew, which is one of the most ancient languages in use today, is an ideal language for those who are looking to learn more about their own culture. Hebrew is the mother tongue of many Jews and has been spoken for thousands of years. Learning Hebrew can help you gain knowledge on Jewish history and understand what life was like for Jews in Israel before the State of Israel was established.

Best Way To Learn Hebrew

The best way to learn to speak Hebrew is through immersion. But, what does that mean? It means you should have a goal set in mind that you want to accomplish and you should be able to achieve it by studying all day long. In order to gain proficiency in Hebrew, you must study the language on a daily basis. The most effective method of studying is using a language learning program like Rosetta Stone or similar programs that are available online. Another good method would be having an instructor teach you through in-class sessions or one-on-one lessons at your home. Here are some other methods:

* Spend time with people who speak Hebrew (like friends)
* Listen to a lot of Hebrew music (YouTube is great for this)
* Watch Israeli TV shows and movies (in any media format)
* Read Hebrew books or literature

Getting Started

With Hebrew

1.
The first step is to decide if you want to learn the language for professional or personal reasons. If you want to learn the language for professional reasons, you will need to find a teacher and get certified by that teacher. An often-recommended course is Rosetta Stone, which will teach you the grammar rules of Hebrew along with the vocabulary necessary for conversational fluency. However, some people prefer other options such as self-study methods like flashcards or online courses. There are also many free online Jewish learning resources available on YouTube and Twitter that offer lessons in both English and Hebrew.
2.
Know that learning Hebrew takes time and patience. The average time it takes to become fluent in a new language is around six years, so don’t be discouraged if it takes you a little longer than this–everyone learns at their own pace!
3.
You need input on what resources to use in order to develop your skills in Hebrew before you can start speaking it fluently, so make sure to ask around a little before committing yourself to one particular method of studying!

Tips for Newbie Learners

The first and most important tip for learning to speak Hebrew is to start out slow. Don’t try to learn everything at once. Your brain won’t be able to process large amounts of information at one time, so it is best to take your time and learn new words gradually, rather than all at once.
Another piece of advice that you should consider before you start learning the language is that it is okay if you don’t know where your Hebrew will lead you. There are so many ways that this language can benefit people in their everyday lives. Learning a language like Hebrew can help bring peace and harmony within yourself, as well as with those around you who speak this language.

Language Learning Strategies for Hebrew Learners

There are many strategies that you can use to learn a language. One of the most common ways is to use a language school. However, if you have time constraints or your budget doesn’t allow for tuition then digital learning apps like Duolingo and Rosetta Stone might be right for you.

FAQ’s

What is the Semitic language family?

The Semitic language family includes languages such as Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic. Languages in this family share some common features, including a complex system of prefixes and suffixes, a large set of pre-compounds (compounds that are used before a word), verb-initial word order, and grammatical gender.

Because this is a complex language, I will only give you a brief overview of the Semitic language family. If you’re interested in learning more about this language and the many other languages in this family, check out Wikipedia.

What is the number of speakers of Hebrew?

The number of Hebrew speakers is not an exact figure. In Israel alone, the Jewish population (including secular Israelis) – 9 million
– and the Arabic speaking population – 6 million
– make up a combined 11 million Israelis. Among them, there are hundreds of thousands who speak Hebrew as their mother tongue and only use Arabic in their daily lives. So among Israelis who use Hebrew as their mother tongue, there are millions who only use it in their daily lives, but do not consider it their mother tongue.
The Israeli government adopted a policy that requires the public administration to provide services in Hebrew only with the use of translators (according to article 10 of the Order ). Still, plenty of places offer services in Hebrew without translators including: all public transportation (excluding buses), many national, municipal and regional public institutions (except for some genetic services), schools, universities and army service.
It is estimated that among Israelis who speak Hebrew as their mother tongue but also use Arabic in their daily lives, there are between 11 and 12 million people (according to a survey by the Central Bureau of Statistics). Since most Israeli who only use Hebrew in their daily lives are of Jewish origin (there are no real statistics available on this subject) we can assume that among these people combined between 1 and 2 million is fluent in both languages (according to their knowledge of Hebrew). As for Israelis who only speak Hebrew with family or friends, it is estimated that there are between 5 and 6 million people. The total Israeli population numbers around 8 million people so we can assume that among these people combined between 1 and 2 million is fluent in both languages. This means that among all Israelis combined between 4 and 5 million Israelis are fluent in both languages.

How is Hebrew written?

It depends. There are a few ways you can write Hebrew texts. The most common is using the Qal/Niqal writing system, which is used in Israel and in the diaspora. The Qal/Niqal system is used in all modern forms of written Hebrew except in religious books, where the Ashkenazi Siddur is used. A second way of writing Hebrew is called the Tiberian or Geonic, which is used mostly by ultra-orthodox or Haredi Jews. The Tiberian or Geonic system was widely used until the early 20th century in the diaspora and was widely used until about the 1970s in Israel. A third way of writing Hebrew is called Mlahvel (“hebrew letters”); this system was traditionally used by linguists and scholars who were interested in Hebrew grammar, morphology, or lexical studies. Finally, there are common geometric figures found in all Hebrew scripts that were not required to be written down on paper; they are called Garbshug (literal translation: “incorrect letters”), and they are considered “bad letters” that should never be used. The rules for writing mlahvel Garbshug vary a lot between different schools of kabbalah or rabbinic literature and also between different communities within Judaism- such as ashkenazim, sefaradim and Sephardim, among others.- I hope you can enjoy learning all of these phrases…
