Duolingo + XRecorder

I wanted to try learning Hebrew through an app. that is more accessible. So I concluded on Duolingo. I have used Duolingo in the past to help with my desire to learn French. I was taking French as a second language certificate through La Cité at the University of Regina, and we were encouraged to use apps as resources and to continue practicing outside of the classroom. I had a lot of success with it, so I figured would not try it with Hebrew! Not to mention, it is free – forever!

Unfortunately I found it incredibly difficult with Hebrew, as I have not yet learned how to write in Hebrew, since it is not the same as letters in English. I think when learning a new language, if its roots are similar to your native tongue, it will be easier to understand and translate. But when you are going from a language of letters to a language of symbols, it would be highly difficult.

I attached a video which I made on my phone with an app. called XRecorder to provide a visual and audio explanation. XRecorder was easy to use and very straight forward. I would recommend it, as it is free!

  1. I really like that resource “x=recorder”. very useful. I went to Briercrest for four years, and they had a very extensive program on reading Hebrew. You are right though learning the symbols is very important. Good Luck on that journey. Have a great day.


  2. I could definitely see why Hebrew is much more complicated to learn than a language with the same letters as English. Would it be at all helpful to watch a show or movie with Hebrew subtitles? Just a thought! Duolingo is a great app, though and I can’t wait to witness your progress with this tricky project.
