teaching it to myself so i need something that’s pretty good but not too expensive. i want something with a workbook and preferably a dvd.
Hebrew for Dummies is actually not a bad start. It won’t give you fluency, but it will give you a strong background in the spoken words of Hebrew. Also, it is nothing but transliteration, so you’ll know the words, but not how to spell all of them.
Try Rosetta Stone. Or take a class, which will give you a textbook to work with.
Edit: I did quick Google searches. Jack Zeppo and Mary Neeco, if they even exist, did not write any books on Hebrew. And Hebrew for dummies was not written by an Alan Cossa, it is written by Jill Suzanne Jacobs.
Currently I m taking Hebew. We use a book called “Ivrit min Ha’hat’khala” or Hebrew from the Beginning. I don’t recommend it. I know there are better ways to learn Hebrew, and the set up is horrible.
