The Rosetta Hebrew Explorer
Ages 6 and Up

Now you can learn a new language with the award-winning method used by the U.S. State Department to train diplomats. Proven effective by NASA astronauts, Peace Corps volunteers, and millions of students worldwide, the Rosetta Stone Language Library teaches new languages faster and easier than ever before.

We all learn our childhood language by associating new words and phrases with the world around us. The Rosetta Stone method replicates this process by presenting vivid, real-life images to convey the meaning of each new phrase. Instead of translating, memorizing, and studying rules of grammar, you actually learn to think in the new language. Vocabulary and grammar are integrated systematically, leading to everyday proficiency. It's the natural way to learn.

The Rosetta Stone Explorer contains 22 lessons for beginning learners with nearly 900 real-life images and phrases spoken by native speakers. It develops all key language skills--listening comprehension, reading, speaking, and writing--while its systematic structure teaches vocabulary and grammar naturally, without lists and drills. Includes previews, exercises, and tests for every lesson, with automated tutorials throughout the program. (Ages 6 and older)

Vocabulary Builder:
EuroTalk's interactive flash card system is perfect for helping beginning students and children (ages 3 to 10) learn basic Hebrew language and vocabulary skills. Language games create a fun education environment, while the program's recording tool lets students record their own words and sentences. Instruction is provided in more than 40 languages by a talented talking tiger.

Description from Publisher

This is the follow on to Prof. Raizen's Modern Hebrew for Beginners. Like the first book, it uses reading exercises, videos, verb practices from the Web. However, she's made some changes that make the book easier to use. Vocabularly lists are now in alef-bet order. Units start with a reading selection and reading comprehension questions where before it could have been either the reading selection or a video.
