In the spring of this coming year (2007) I plan to sign up for an introductory Biblical Hebrew class.
I speak English (native language) and German (used to be more-or-less fluent, now I’m losing it from disuse).
I am wondering who here has studied Biblical Hebrew and what were your impressions.
One thing that concerns me is that I have dyslexia. Writing a script “backwards” (right to left) and without vowels scares me.
Also, since I’m taking the class in the spring, do you recommend any beginner books that might help me get a head start? I specifically ask for books because I learn better from them than websites.
Thanks so much!!!
