Hebrew Conversation Practice

Now you have 13 Hebrew conversation scripts. So, what is next?

How can you get better at speaking Hebrew with these? Here is how.

1) Read out loud and 2) try and speed up your reading. Why?

The faster you can read, the better you’ll get at reading and speaking in general.

Speaking fast is a sign of expertise. When native speakers notice this, they’ll understand that you’re good “enough” and don’t need to stop and think of every word.

3) Review these Hebrew conversations as much as possible. Nobody learns things and masters everything on the first try. If you want these lines to be in your brain, you need to practice them for a few minutes per day. It’s not hard to read a few lines a day, is it?

4) Print this page out. That will make the reviewing easier. I know you won’t be coming back to this website anyway.
