Let's learn how to learn Hebrew (or any other language you wish).


Maybe you have already thoughor even wondered about learning a language, but due to your school bcakground you failed or do not believe that you can really learn a language. You are right, YOU CANNOT, following your past experiences you will only learn about the language, schools are good places to teach "things", i.e. you can learn about Geography, History and even the Grammar of your own language, but you can't learn another language that way, at schools you can learn about Spanish language, but not speak Spanish, afterwards you didn't go to school to learn your mother tongue, why shoul you do so with a foreign language? Nonsense, isn't it? 
Am I stating that Foreign Language Schools are useless? Nope! There are good teachers who can bring back this atmosphere and help you to aquire the new language. There are plenty of good books about such topic and for sure each one will give you some priceless tips and strategies, if someone can do something you can reproduce the strategy. There's no such a thing of mixing methods, there are only whole methods which must be followed as they are, as for instance if you choose The Pimsleur Method go through it till the end, or Benny Lewis' Day One Method follow it, in other words methods will work providing you stick on them until the end, not necessarilly till master the language, but till the end of the chosen method. Trust in each method till the end of the method, most of them will take you to A2 or B1 level, and an important point to be aware is that, even with only one method it can be focused on 1 or 2 skills, and thus you should have other ace on the sleeve. As for instance Pimsleur is focused on listening and speaking, so maybe Assimil can complete the other 2 skills. 
During this paper I will share with you some strategies to learn a brand new language for me, Hebrew, despite being the author of several teaching books, I cannot use it (at this very moment) to learn Hebrew just because there is no Mello Method Hebrew available, so even being exprerienced on learning languages I'm a complete beginner in Hebrew, including the brand new alphabet. So, let's start from 0 and reach A2-B1 level following this method/strategy. 
It's like a cake recipe, follow and you will get your cake, oops, your new language.
Recipe to learn Hebrew:

- Learn the alphabet: watch this video three times, each time practicing activelly, with the intervals of 2 or 3 days among them.
Done? Are you sure? Ok, now let's move on, but just to ensure and give yourself time to practice, the next step will be availabe in 3 day's time. 

Best wishes!
