Hi, apart from other
people told you
I want to suggest some
I’m a Spanish speaker and
not exactly a young dude, I’m 35 years old and started
learning English on September 2015, that would be two years
ago and now I read books, listen up podcasts and even I’m able
to speak with a native speaker English on whatsapp.
So, I would like to know I
did something right on my learning process.
Of course, on internet
there are so much English learning material than Hebrew,
that’s a fact and something you should be aware, besides, I
don’t want to discourage you but you should know Hebrew is not
exactly, what we would say, into the 5 top ten easy languages
to learn, even por people who speak many languages, however it
is not one of the most difficult languages either.
You can contrast this
information by doing a search on the web.
I suggest to use many
synthetizers as you can, listening up different synthetizers
gives you a better understanding, of course try to find a good
podcast, a basic one at first and eventually look for an
Ask for any Hebrew native
speaker for connecting you with a mailing list for chatting so
you can see how they use the vocabulary on a daily bases.
If you use windows 10,
great!, this OS brings you excellent synthetizers that in my
opinion are more efficient and and understandable for a
beginner, so all you would have to to do is download the
Alt + shihft taggle
between keyboard languages.
Find on internet webs with
your prefer topics and copy them into word, then slowly read
them and look into a dictionary every word you
do not understand, at first, only do this with specific words
repeated on the text again and again, important to determine
if it is an article, a noun or a verb.
Later on your learning
process I suggest start reading books, specially biographies
or memories, this is because language contained on this books
is so much closer to a vocabulary use on a daily bases than
any other genra.
As I said before, I do not
want to discourage you, but do some more research on internet
and try to find where are the wick points for
ang English native speaker to for learning Hebrew, this way
you would be clear about where exactly to start and what
For instance, for me as I
native Spanish speaker I quickly discovered pronunciation will
be my wickness, so I do not pay so much attetntion to this but
I will have to do it later because I want to sound natural or
something closer at least when speaking with a native.
But if I would have started for this objective, as you
would suppose, I would have abandone the whole learning
English process, so I focused on reading that is what suits
Anyways, good luck!

Jeremy, I'm sure that someone can help you with the audio end of
things. However, I would strongly suggest that you explore
learning Braille and Hebrew Braille in particular. I don't know
much about this but if you're wanting to learn both Modern
Hebrew plus leturgical Hebrew, contact The Jewish Guild for the
Blind in NYC. They will have info for you
<smiling> I don't know if 'liturgical' is the right word
for Hebrew used in religious services and for the Bible, but
it's the only word I know. There is a difference between the
two, I think.
Howdy all and hope that everyone is
doing well. I had a few questions
about the process of learning a language, my example being
which I've become interested, that hopefully one of you kind
be able to point me in the right direction.
While I've had wonderful luck in being
able to find materials,
lessons/videos and such that are designed to help in learning,
finding that I know next to nothing about the process required
the written part more accessible. It's my understanding that
to actually read the language is controlled from within the
speech engine, but I'm guessing that the screenreader also
support the ability to auto switch between languages, else
you'd need to
change back and forth manually depending on the language you
If I am correct in my thinking and this
is how it works, might someone
be able to give me some ideas/advice on whether Talkback on
this ability and what TTS would support both English and
also like to be able to read both on the computer and I seem
seeing an option inside NVDA for auto-language switching, so
mean I just need a TTS that supports both languages here also?
In as far as being able to type the
language for practice, on the phone
at least, I'm guessing that perhaps Google's default keyboard
could support it. I'm also hoping that it's not too difficult
my keyboard type on Windows, for the few times I'd be wishing
those characters, but I'd love to be corrected in anything I
missing. haha :)
The being able to write the language is sorta secondary
though, as I
have to be able to read it first. lol
Anyways, hope that all of you have had a wonderful holidays so
are staying safe and warm and a happy new year coming up, too.
