Hebrew reading for beginners
Hebrew reading for beginners is a very popular topic on Facebook in certain “learning Hebrew” groups. Too be honest, it may be the same on other social media platforms, but I don’t follow them, so I cannot comment. Regardless of what social media platform people follow, if a person is searching the phrase “Hebrew reading for beginners”, one needs to be choosy which direction they follow.
Some programs that target Hebrew reading for beginners provide much needed clarity around how to learn Hebrew. This is extremely helpful, as Hebrew reading for beginners can be hard. It is a matter of finding the right program that suits the needs of the student. One such program that teaches Hebrew reading for beginners is Easy Learn Hebrew. What is helpful is that there is no assumed knowledge of any Hebrew whatsoever.
It is important to explore all options of Hebrew reading for beginners. It might be that a person who wants to learn the read Hebrew, prefers a one-on-one tutor. This might be preferable to an online program. However, the student might prefer to utilise both an online program and a tutor. It is always beneficial to have choices when exploring options.
Students also need encouragement, with the online program or a tutor. For example, having a certificate of completion to print out, and instant quiz results are important for the online line option. If learning with a tutor, then a very encouraging tutor.
Some basic pointers for people starting to read Hebrew: find the right pathway to learn, be it online or with a face-to-face tutor. Whatever pathway you choose, make sure you have the right encouragement. Most importantly, make sure you reach your goal of learning Hebrew reading. If it is something that will inspire you, or something that you need to do, make sure you learn to read Hebrew!

The Easy Learn Hebrew story began in 1986 when I became involved with Rabbi Lampert's teaching methods as a tutor in the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' course.
This course took students, who could not read a word of Hebrew at the beginning of the day, and by the end of the day they could read Hebrew, slowly, but correctly.
In 1999, I completed my Bachelor of Arts majoring in Hebrew, and, as part of my degree, spent a year in Israel studying Hebrew at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. In 2008, I became the primary instructor for the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' course.
Whilst conducting these face to face courses it occurred to me that this unique classroom-based method could be transferred to an online format to make it accessible to people all around the world, and so the Easy Learn Hebrew program was born!
The Easy Learn Hebrew program is the 'Learn To Read Hebrew In One Day' classroom course 'online', however offering much more in terms of being able to revise the 'classroom' content online repeatedly via the videos, take the online quizzes and being able to print out the associated hard copy learning materials as required.
I am very excited to make this program available and look forward to welcoming you as an online Easy Learn Hebrew student.
