I haven’t really started Biblical Hebrew in earnest (although earlier this year I did a lot of listening of the Psalms). However, later on when I do work on it, I’ll probably follow this guy’s method — making anki decks of sentences from the Tanach (with audio).

Studying grammar first seems like one of the worst ways to study classical Hebrew. And since text and audio are easy to get, it’s mainly a matter of segmenting sections and then reviewing them on anki.

The one sad thing is that I haven’t been able to find audio for the whole Tanach cantilated yet. I really enjoy the cantilated version and I think it should help for memorization as well.
