I just finished Level Two. My favorite chapter story was #7: "Saving Lives". This is a good series, but has two drawbacks: 1)the glossaries do not contain all the words used in the book. 2) there are no answer keys to the exercises. This is OK if you have a teacher, but for those of us studying on our own, it can be a problem. Recommend students who use this book have a Hebrew dictionary on hand, and also a good verb book like Bolozky's "501 Hebrew Verbs". The verb book will help greatly with the exercises. After a short break, I plan to start Level Three.

This is a text book that kept me interested at all times. Each unit begins with a story - each one is warm, funny, and/or touching. They involve everyday life, as well as bible stories. The book is alive, and if you put in only a few hours per week, you can finish it in three months or less. After finishing the first book -Level 1- and this one, you will then be able to read Hebrew text from the Chumash, and it will change your sense of the Five Books of Moses
