The last few months I’ve been outside of Israel and focusing more on other languages so I haven’t been able to work as hard on Israel as before.

However to and from work I’ve regularly been listening to Hebrew songs. At first I could barely understand anything but after a few months of listening to them almost every day for forty minutes I’ve been surprised how many words I can pick out and understand. Even the words I don’t understand I hear as individual words instead of some run together gobblygook. This is encouraging.

I’ve also written some diary entries.
