So I am currently only taking Hebrew classes here at BGU. We have class from 9:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. with a break from about 10:30-11:00. While this might not seem like a lot, learning Hebrew three hours a day at a breakneck pace from a Professor who teaches in Hebrew is definitely rather hard. We also have 1.5-2+ hours of homework everyday.
I am in the 2nd of five levels of Ulpan and my Hebrew is definitely improving. I can understand words in conversations I hear now and am feeling more comfortable with the little bit of Hebrew that I know. Today I asked a question about our homework in Hebrew. It might not sound like much, but I was impressed with myself. The biggest thing I need to work on I think is my vocabulary.
