Shalom Hebrew

For decoding learning and reinforcement, try Shalom Hebrew. Each of the 24 lessons in this app builds on a foundation of key cultural words, such as mitzvah and shamash, and introduces related letters, vowels, syllables and words, with plenty of practice opportunities. Students learn Hebrew aurally and visually at the same time, hearing the sounds of letters, vowels and syllables. Learners can also record themselves reading and play back the recording, and compare their pronounciation to both Israeli and American voices.

Created as a universal app, it can be used on any PC or Mac desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. For students in the Online Learning Center, the app links to student accounts and allows their progress and recordings to be saved centrally, no matter where they practice—at home, at school, or even in the car.

Sample the first five lessons FREE by visiting the app store or Google play and downloading Shalom Hebrew directly to any iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
