Description

This is E-Vreet's first course in a series of four beginning Biblical Hebrew courses. We created this course for busy people who don't feel like they are ready for the traditional Biblical Hebrew courses.  If you have this desire to learn Biblical Hebrew but don't know where to begin, this course is for you.  If you want some basic idea on how Biblical Hebrew works, then you will enjoy this course.  If you want more out of your bible study time and want to get deeper into the meaning, then this course will start you on your journey. This course is vital for anyone who will be taking a traditional Biblical Hebrew course.  It will prepare you for the challenges to come.   We don't teach you Biblical Hebrew--we guide you into the world of Biblical Hebrew, giving you a peek into how Biblical Hebrew is constructed using Legos.  We use English to show you how Biblical Hebrew works "under the hood."

Who this course is for:
  • Those who want a quick overview of Biblical Hebrew grammar in English with inspirational Bible verses.
  • You have a desire to learn Biblical Hebrew but don't know where to begin.
  • You need the basics of Biblical Hebrew grammar before you begin a traditional Hebrew course
  • You want to learn about how Biblical Hebrew works but you don't know any Hebrew.
  • You are someone who needs to learn with more modern methods.
