Practicing Hebrew with Jonah

A colleague shared a particularly good website for beginning Hebrew students.  At Animated Hebrew the book of Jonah is printed (and read) in a comic book format.

This is a summary from the site:  “Every word of the Hebrew text is included in this Jonah comic in multiple scripts (square, cursive, paleo-Hebrew) and multiple forms (consonantal, pointed, cantillated). You can also listen to my slow, deliberate read of the Hebrew text, and pause or repeat at any time. At the bottom of the screen you’ll find ancient and modern translations that you can compare with the Hebrew text (Aramaic, Syriac, Greek, Latin, German, French, and 3 English translations). This comic is a great way to learn or practice your biblical Hebrew.”

This is a helpful site where I will be sending my students.  Thanks to those at Animated Hebrew!
