First Sample Lesson — Feedback welcome!

July 16th, 2009 Posted in Hebrew Bible Sample Lessons

Awesome news: Here is a sample lesson for our new course. Please give us your feedback in the comments!

And please, please, please answer the Sample Lesson survey. It only takes about 2 minutes and it will really help us to help you.

Some important notes before you begin:

1) There are two versions below. They are identical, but one is Flash and one is a .wmv. Which works better for you?

2) In the actual course the video will probably be split up into 2 or 3 different parts, so one can do just the reading part or just the translation parts by themselves.

3) Some of the intro remarks are for this sample only to give you an idea what we are doing. We will move most/all of the intro stuff into a separate video in the course itself.

4) We are planning on listing selected grammatical points covered in the lessons in a separate video or file for easy review.

Flash-based (like YouTube; can be sped up or slowed down using the cool MySpeed Plugin from Enounce.com):


Windows Media format (.wmv):

IMPT: Remember to leave your comments and answer the Sample Lesson survey so we can tailor the course to YOUR needs. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi, I think that this is great. Just to let you know, I live in Guatemala, Central America, and I was excited about can learn hebrew through the web. Here the lessons are kind of expensive. So again, I’m looking forward to start the course. Shalom ;).

  8. tzofiya Says:

    I like it! Both versions played well for me. I can read Torah, but I have to look words up, and need to learn grammar, so this helps me too.

  9. legindi Says:


    That was great. I a Hungary based interpreter of some languages and decided to learn Hebrew alone without tutor. The reading is not a real skill of me yet and there are things that were not clear and are not still but this course helped me to understand some of them. The only thing I’d like to know is if there is any possibility to download the lessen for future reference or are they available any time.

    Hello. The flash-based version worked for me. I use a G4 Mac, and currently using Safari to browse. Thank you kindly for sharing this.

  11. sarahbessie Says:


    I like both, it worked by my PC but not by my PDA. Its would be great if I can process by my PDA, so I can connect and learn anytime.

    Thank you…

    One word at a time, a little more animation, some shoreshim, and a one to one linkage from the Hebrew to the english words would help.
    Todah rabah!

    Great job! I would like to congratulate you on this course it’s a great opportunity to learn biblical Hebrew. I am from Colombia and I’m descendant of Sephardi Jews. I’m interested in my roots. Referring to the format I like the WMV version. I’d like you to deepen in some points of Hebrew grammar for instance the verbs tenses. Thank you!
