The last few weeks have been extremely frustrating for language study.  Part of the problem is that its the holiday season here in Israel (somewhat equivalent to Christmas and New Year’s in other parts of the world). Aa result, most shops and restaurants are closed. Several days of the week the streets are empty with barely a soul in sight as people celebrate with their families.

I have been continuing my Skype classes and keeping on learning the words given there. I’ve also been watching lots of Hebrew youtube videos, trying to follow the dialogue. Its fun — slowly, bits and pieces of the language are starting to make sense.

I’ve been meaning to immerse myself in Hebrew, and some days are definitely better than others in that regard. It’s something I want to keep working on in the next few days.
