2) Amazon.com for Hebrew Learning Books

  • Type of site: Online Store
  • Strengths: All kinds of books, software and Hebrew learning products

Clearly, Amazon was NOT built to learn Hebrew.

But, if you’re looking to get software, phrasebooks or textbooks, you’re going to end up on Amazon.

As such, it indeed deserves to be on this list of Hebrew learning websites.

4) Hebrew Today

  • Type of site: newspaper site designed for learners
  • Strengths: articles for reading practice

Want to read news articles and improve your Hebrew at the same time?

You can.

This is a popular way of learning that Japanese learners use.

And, you can indeed try it out for Hebrew. More importantly, you read news about Israel and Jewish culture so it keeps you immersed in the language and culture.

This is defintely the most unique entry on my list of Hebrew learning websites.

5) Duolingo

  • Type of site: quiz lessons & app
  • Strengths: game-like way to learn

Duolingo is not a complete language learning program.

You won’t learn to speak.

You won’t be reading simple articles or bibles with it.

Think of it as a… supplementary tool that’s just “one of the things” you do to learn Hebrew and stay on track.

But, it teaches you Hebrew words though Rosetta Stone style quizzes: matching games, fill-in the blanks and such. A lot of people like their game-like approach and that’s good enough.

6) LearningHebrew.Net

  • Type of site: Blog site with beginner articles
  • Strengths: Beginner friendly

This website is kind of like mine. You can discover tons of interesting resources.

And, you get some beginner level articles about the Hebrew alphabet, Hebrew slang and much more.

In my opinion, it’s a nice, first step to read and look around before you sink into an actual textbook or program.

7) www.morfix.co.il

  • Type of site: Dictionary
  • Strengths: Learning new words

Hey, you can’t learn language without having a dictionary, right? You will need to look up all the new and unknown words for you.

So, if I’m going to talk about the best Hebrew learning websites, I need to include dictionaries.

Morfix is one of the fullest and easy to use free online dictionaries out there. You don’t have to switch anything you just type a word in English or in Hebrew press “תרגום” and it will translate it into the target language automatically.

This dictionary is really helpful because it divides the translation into different parts of speech (verbs, nouns, adjectives…) and also indicates the sphere of usage of some special words (colloquial speech, banking, accounting…).

Morfix has both English and Hebrew versions, so that you don’t have to know Hebrew to use it.

8) hebrew.moia.gov.il/Pages/HomePage.aspx
