Extraordinary!

First time ever leaving a review. The breadth and thoroughness of each podcast is quite remarkable. However, the best thing about it is Guy’s (the host) respect for the learner, you can sense it in the way he speaks and teaches.

Magnífic

El millor podcast per aprendre hebreu modern i de passada descobrir la música israeliana. Píndoles perfectes de deu minuts al voltant d’una arrel i els seus derivats, combinant explicacions de gramàtica, vocabulari i pronúncia amb exemples musicals de tots els gèneres. Imprescindible!
