Hebrew vocabulary learning
has posted about his approach to teaching vocabulary to beginning Hebrew students
. "The idea is rather simple: provide a simple or familiar context for each vocabulary word and one will more easily remember the word
This approach is one we valued in developing דָּבָר Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies
project. Along with the other contextual material: sound, picture, other forms, semantic field... we included a phrase from the Bible that uses the word to be learned. In our version the student can also hear n0t only the lemma, but also the example phrase.
Allan has prepared lists for about 1200 words. We only have about half that "done" so far. But if you notice that "vocabularies" is plural in the name we chose you may also spot that with our system you can produce the vocabulary
you need for whichever grammar book or course you are using. If you need a word we have not yet done you can become a "contributor" and get a login
to add data to the collection to fill in the gap.
Here is what one word would look like
to the student.
BTW if you want Greek flashcards Danny has a system to offer
. Which allows me to mention that דָּבָר Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies
project also allows you to output your vocabularies for printing to use as flashcards. (Actually flash two sheets of paper that slide but that will save trees too!)
