Fun and excellent

A suggestion: can you please add at the end the written Hebrew for the short monologue you give at the end? This helps greatly as we adjust to the rhythm of spoken Ivrit, to check if we caught the words. תודה.

Best Hebrew Language Podcast There Is

Well organized, focused, with a touch of humor and plenty of eclectic musical accompaniment.

Fun way to learn Hebrew you’ll actually use

I moved to Tel Aviv 10 months ago and took a good ulpan. But Hebrew is hard and it’s easy to get by in English. Plus, I was embarrassed by my bumbling Hebrew. Then I started listening to Guy’s podcast. In a breezy way that covers a lot of ground, he makes learning Hebrew natural, gradual, and so much fun, I finally started speaking it. With actual Israelis. With all my mistakes and awful accent. (Those r’s? Impossible!)
Maybe it’s how he pulls it together —slang and grammar, sense and sentences, popular culture and linguistic insights—but I enjoy each episode.
Streetwise Hebrew is helping me speak Hebrew on the street. Imagine that.

Oh, and the biggest difference between the podcast and my childhood Sunday school? It’s NOT BORING!
