Cooper, B. L. (2017). Learning Hebrew From Genesis. Retrieved from

This is a full grammar teaching of "Biblical" Hebrew from a fluent author in a very unique style. The vocabulary words are specifically selected based on the common words in Genesis chapters 1-4, and the words that are used in the Bible more than 500 times, along with all of the prepositions and other necessary grammar words. I do not believe in asking a student to memorize a word that is used less than 20 times in the Bible, just because it is in Genesis. I do not believe in putting lots of exercises for the student to practice or test themselves with, but instead I ask the student to practice with flashcards and to do their own reading and writing before each lesson. This reduces the size of this book because I don't need an answer section or 2 pages of exercises for each chapter. I do not include a glossary because I have wrote a separate free Hebrew Dictionary 'Counting Roots'. Once a student finishes this book, they will be able to continue learning vocabulary from the rest of the Torah until they are fluent.

This is a book to help you teach yourself 'Biblical' Hebrew. All of the grammar, vowels, and important cantillations are covered. Once you finish this book, all you have left to do is learn the remaining Hebrew vocabulary that is used 20-500 times in the Bible, and you can do that by reading and translating the Torah a few verses each day and look up the words you do not know yet.

1.2 Should I learn Modern or Biblical? The first thing you must decide is if it would be “Modern Hebrew” or “Biblical Hebrew” that you want to learn. Modern Hebrew is not the original Hebrew of creation, its not the original Hebrew of the Garden of Eiden, and its not the original Hebrew that Noach, Avraham, and Yaaqov spoke. There are some added and removed grammar aspects, and many added words that are not in the Biblical Hebrew. If you are going to be spending a lot of time in Israel, then maybe you should learn Modern Hebrew to speak it there. If you will be spending a lot of time reading and studying the Tanakh, then you should probably learn Biblical Hebrew. I don't recommend that you learn both Modern and Biblical at the same time. This is because of the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary differences, you will probably confuse the two often. I suggest that you first master one, then start to learn the other. Start with the one that you need the most first. People who speak Modern Hebrew, and who also can read the Bible, do not differentiate the two languages usually. They think of the Bible as being an outdated form of the language. So, if your goal is to speak Hebrew with other people fluently, you should learn Modern Hebrew.
