Focus on why you want to learn Hebrew

As I say to people who ask me how long does it take to achieve your goal?,  Well, the amount of time one dedicates to the language will eventually determine how quickly (or slowly) it will take to learn the language! It is like with anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it!  It also depends what your why is?

 If you only want to learn to read Hebrew, it won’t take that long. Using the Easy Learn Hebrew program, maybe 2 months if you work on the lessons consistently. However, if you only spend 10 mins a week, it will take a lot longer. If you want to know how to write and how to use Hebrew grammar, then it will take a lot longer.
