I spent two hours studying Hebrew today with a friend and teacher. — I was mostly trying to understand a couple articles written in Hebrew. . . but we spent a bunch of time talking about things in Hebrew both while we were studying and before and afterwards.

I haven’t had so much Hebrew speaking practice in a while — and it was very nice to be able to understand and take part in the conversations. (Even though it was at a rather limited level.)

My listening focus the last several weeks has really helped. I find myself suddenly understanding rather long sentences even when I don’t know all the words or exactly what grammatical construction is being used. I want to keep up my focusing on listening . . . Even though it’s nice to feel the improvement, I still have a ways to go. 🙂
