More Details

Basics of Biblical Hebrew 2 is the second part of a two-course series designed to introduce you to the Hebrew language of the Old Testament.

Using the best inductive and deductive approaches to classical language, Basics of Biblical Hebrew uses actual examples from the Hebrew Old Testament rather than made-up illustrations and emphasizes understanding the structural pattern of the Hebrew language rather than rote memorization.

Designed for self-learners and academic students looking to refresh their knowledge of Hebrew, this course is supported by the best-selling textbook Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar: Third Edition.

All course material—instructional videos, readings, practice exercises, quizzes, exams, and vocabulary review—is available online for study at your own convenience.
