Rabbi Richard G. Lampert
Learn basic Hebrew
I realised the importance of having to learn basic Hebrew when I was fourteen years old. I travelled to Israel with my family for the first time as a teenager. At passport control, the man behind the booth said, “boy”,. I said I’m a “girl, not a boy”. He kept saying “boy” until he realised I had no idea what he was saying! Eventually, he said, “come here”. I was later told that he was saying “bo-i”, which means “come here” in the feminine form. At that point, I realised that I did not learn basic Hebrew when I was learning Hebrew in primary school.
Before you go to any country, it is vital to try and learn a bit of the language. Going to Israel is no exception. Therefore, it is crucial that you learn basic Hebrew before you land! Therefore, I suggest that you either buy an online Hebrew learning program or enrol in face-to-face or online Hebrew classes to help you learn basic Hebrew.
Imagine you go to Israel, and you need to find a bathroom urgently, or you are really hungry and want to order some food; two very common scenarios. If you have not had the opportunity to simple Hebrew, it will be challenging to navigate what I consider to be ‘the basics’ of everyday life.
When I lived in Israel when I was twenty-four years old, I found that learning the language provided me with a deeper understanding of the Israeli culture and mentality. Indeed, taking the opportunity to the basics of this ancient language will definitely give you an insight into Israeli culture. For example, I found that the language used was used in the imperative, such as “sit”, “stand” and so on; many Israelis do not say “please”; it is their culture.
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.
