“My Hebrew Starter Kit”
I chose this book to get me started on the road to speaking and reading Hebrew. With a thousand words under my belt it has helped immensely when moving onto grammar and sentence construction. I recommend this book as your starting point. My kids were highly amused to be seeing me reading what they thought was a child's book. I got quite a few looks on the London Underground too! Don't be put off by the child friendly appearance. Everyone has to start somewhere. How many words do you know in Hebrew?
Even though I have not purchased this book, I have used it at the house of a friend of mine, and think that it is extremely useful.
