Rabbi Richard G. Lampert
Learn Hebrew easily
I wonder to myself how can people learn Hebrew easily. I was fortunate enough to start when I was very young. My father was a Rabbi, so Hebrew was part of my lifestyle. But others who are not in the same position, I was in; need to find ways to learn Hebrew easily. There are a number of ways people can learn Hebrew easily, but it is important to take it step-by-step.
The question I always ask my Hebrew pupils is, “how do you eat an elephant?” and they invariably look at me blankly. The answer is always the same “one bite at a time!”. The same attitude needs to be taken when you are looking to learn Hebrew easily. Do not try and tackle everything all at once. The first step is to learn the Aleph-Bet (the Hebrew alphabet). This in itself can be a challenge. To learn Hebrew easily, you need to make sure that you learn the Aleph Bet in an easy-to-remember way.
For example, Easy Learn Hebrew uses mnemonics, thus making learning Hebrew a lot easier to learn than using other methods.
As with any skill, you need to find out how you learn best. Is through visual aids, listening to an audio/teacher. Or is it through reading the text, or perhaps using your hands to learn? Or it might be all four ways. Whichever way you learn best, make the most of it, and throw yourself into learning this new skill.
Another consideration to take into account is to work out if you prefer to have lessons with a private tutor, in a group environment or if you are happy to learn through an online program, such as Easy Learn Hebrew. Whatever you choose, make sure it is right for you.
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.
