Well, it's a Biblical language........I thought I would like to learn another language and for years had been trying to decide which. Finally I decided I'd love to read the Scriptures in the original - perhaps Greek will be next for me ! I'm learning to read & write Hebrew as well.
I find it is a fascinating and relatively easy language for me to learn. NOT that it's eaaaaaaasy at all!
I speak Spanish, Portuguese and some French - the latter 2 are both very guttural, and in that, I guess I have an easier time than most with the guttural nature of Hebrew.
I find it is a beautiful language and DH and I dream of visiting Israel someday!!!!!!!!!!!!! How fortunate you are to live there!
