Here is a list of sites I found helpful in learning both Biblical Hebrew and Modern (conversational) Hebrew. I hope that this list will aid you in exploring more of the Hebrew language, both Bibical Hebrew and Modern Hebrew. Of course, this list is in no way comprehensive. Many more websites exist. These are ones that I have reviewed and found useful.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE SITE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO MY LIST?? EMAIL ME, MORAHIVRIT@YAHOO.COM, AND I WILL REVIEW THE SITE AND CONSIDER INCLUSION ON THIS USEFUL LINK PAGE! TODAH RABA!
A well-ordered video class is Mark Jacobs on YouTube
His beginner's class is particularly nice, presenting letters, vowels, and giving examples of words containing them each time. The advanced is simply a continuation of the intermediate.
Here is a very useful site for finding line by line Hebrew-English-Strong's concordance numbers of each word in scripture. I use this site continuously. Click on interlinear OR Hebrew and have fun exploring!
Machon-mamre is an online interlinear Bible for quick look-ups of verses. It includes an audio, so you can follow along while the text is read. Audio opens in a seperate window, which makes it a bit awkward, but doable.
This site has a basic overview of the alef-bet, history of Hebrew, and translator's challenges. click here Mr. Benner also takes a look at the various Semitic roots that Hebrew springs from. click here
His word of the day is here.
This following site, cartoon Hebrew, is a fun way to learn the Hebrew letters and vowels. Great for kids. If you are visual and like to have word-pictures for mnemonic devices, it is great! This creator of the site only got though fey sofit, though....
Canadian Charles Grebe's site: animated Hebrew. It has video, charts, and much more.The lectures are particularily useful in explaining details of Hebrew. It follows the Ross text.
The University of Texas has an extensive site, the Biblical Hebrew section is here.
Especially for children, Akhlah not only has Hebrew, but also facts about Israel, the Parashiyot, puzzles, coloring sheets and more.
Modern, Conversational Hebrew
If you are interested in beginning to learn some Hebrew words, the next site is sure to be of some help. These are generally Modern Hebrew Pronunciations. The main difference is that the tsere will be pronounced as "eh" like in the word " them". When you take my class, we will discuss this in full.
If you like to hear the Hebrew, this site is fun. There is no translation, but they speak very slow and clear so it is very easy to listen and follow along in these videos.
This site contains a search for all verbs. It gives the tenses for each, if you choose that option. I find it VERY handy for looking up how to say something.
Zigzag world contains several pages with Hebrew interactive pictures. There is a VERY challenging alef-bet game also that you could check out. It won't work unless you have Java installed.
This Hebrew dictionary site has audio and pictures to help you learn Hebrew vocabulary (modern Hebrew).
This site below has a search engine for words in English to Hebrew., transliteration to Hebrew OR Hebrew to English. they include Hebrew letters on the bottom of the page. It is very awkward to use, however. A good Hebrew-English dictionary in book form would be more useful. On my resource page, I have Hebrew-English/English-Hebrew by Ben Yehuda.
This site has quite the selection: Alef-bet, Hebrew phrases, survival terms (all Modern Hebrew). Drawbacks: the Hebrew transliteration doesn't explain how to really pronounce the words. The examples are all in the masculine gender.
For those interested in learning more conversational Hebrew, I re-visited an old site (where I purchased some of my many headcoverings) and found that the owner had expanded her conversational Hebrew section. Again, there is no way to listen to the pronunciation. At least she gives both masculine and feminine gender on the second person. First person is still all masculine, though.
Finally, this last site has 3 free lessons, and you can sign up for 10. There is membership and payment involved, but the presentation is clear and useful if you plan to travel to Israel. Survival Phrases.
New addition: I found this: click here! in my various internet wandering, and found it very useful. This is the BEST for truly learning and understanding practical Modern Hebrew phrases!
