Hebrew - Ivrit - עברית
I think this week I am going to make drill cards. I really need to get some of this memorization and sentence placement (on the spot) down. I wish someone in my family spoke Hebrew. It would make a big difference to practice with the vocabulary I have learned so far.
Tonight we started learning how to say things like "Good teacher, the good teacher, the teacher is good" as well as "Where does the (male) student learn? He learns in high school. Where does the (female) student learn? She learns in middle school. Where do the students (males) learn? They learn in elementary school. Where do the (female) students learn? They learn at university." Then we substituted teacher with student in the former and student with teacher in the latter. Sound easy? Yeah...I am sure by the end of the week, I will agree. But tonight...it was a little difficult.
I am, though, enjoying the class and have stuck it out longer than my Hebrew class at Hebrew University (I think I lasted 4 classes and I was lost all four classes). I must say that Gratz has a wonderful online Hebrew language program and I highly recommend it.
