To some people the term “basic Hebrew language” is a bit of an oxymoron. To the novice, Hebrew appears to be a very difficult language to learn. The characters are completely different to the Latin characters that are common in English and other European languages. It is also read from the opposite way we read most other languages, from right to left, instead of left to right.
So, it can be obvious that the term “basic Hebrew language” may not make sense to “newbies”. However, like any language, one needs to start with the absolute basics. The first step is to learn to read the consonants and vowels. Once you have mastered this skill, the next step is to learn to read words by breaking them up into syllables. That sounds more like “basic Hebrew language”.
How to start learning “basic Hebrew language”
The first step to learn basic Hebrew language is to find resources to help you. One type of resource can be an online program, like Easy Learn Hebrew. another option for a resource to help you learn is through a face-to-face classroom, with a teacher. There are pros and cons to both options.
Another, but extremely expensive way to start learning the language is to go and live in Israel! You will most definitely learn the language by simply living in the country where the language is spoken. However, this option is certainly not for everyone, and the first two options are far more accessible and realistic.
Making a decision
It can be difficult to decide which is options is best for you to start with your learning. The best way to tackle a problem is write down the pros and cons. Making lists will help you see things more clearly, and will make the decision easier.
