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!
