Last Sunday, I taught my 1st Hebrew Class as a Sunday School option at my church. I have 6 students who will be taking the plunge into classical Hebrew (The youngest student that I have will be entering the 7th grade this coming September, which is pretty cool). The purpose of this summer class is to provide a basic primer to this ancient language. We will be learning the Aleph bet, vowels, syllabification, nouns (singular, plural, and with pronominal suffixes), some Qal verbs, and doing tons of vocab. The pace will be slow, but I think I will be able to provide a nice foundation to the language this way. Hopefully most of the students will want to continue learning Hebrew at the end of the summer, so that we can really begin to work through an actual introductory grammar come this fall. I am currently planning on using Bonnie Kittel’s text. I am really looking forward to working with this class!!!
