Mention that Hebrew is somewhat similar to Arabic, and if you know one, easier to learn the other?

Very good. Along with Greek, Hebrew is at the heart of our own western civilisation. Maybe more mention of learning resources and Israeli bookstores would be helpful.

Knowing Hebrew does indeed make Arabic easier due to similar vocabulary and grammar. The alphabets are very different, however.

There's a lot of good Israeli music and even some Hebrew music by American artists who are Jewish. Some is in the modern alternative style, some rock, some traditional, etc. Some of myfavorites are: Idan Raichel, Yael Naim, and Blue Fringe. There are many others, all of which are very easy to get a hold of abroad through the internet.

There are a plethora of movies you can get in Hebrew. Many were actually created in Hebrew. In addition to Movies made in Hebrew, many Disney and other films are available for purchase online.

My favorite resources are the curriculum created by, the materials listed above, and FSI Basic Hebrew Course.

When can this profile be added?

Good Morning,
Arabic is close to hebrew and there are some shared vocabulary. with a little diffrent there are also words from persian as well. like the number 6 is sound the same in persian and hebrew and also the word for "time"... as I deep into the arabic and farsi I learnd that. Arabic has more sounds in it from the throat : for example the word for "earth" is somehow "ahrd" (It's hard for me to write it down proparly - the 'ah' is like 'a' from the deep throat) this in arabic, in hebrew is "eretz" you see that they transform to 'e' from 'ah' and the 'd' in the end is translate to 'tz' -this is one example on how they borrowed words from arabic to modern hebrew.

another think the word for poor in hebrew is meaning rich in arabic "ani"(hebrew) "rani"(arabic) - again the r is from the throat and translated to simple 'a'. Also the genderes are somehow opposite. 'male' objects in Hebrew is 'female' objects in arabic for most of them.

For conclusion : arabic is close to hebrew and when you master hebrew you can learn arabic and see it's easier. There are only two!! only two!! Times in arabic : Past and Present-Future. By the way the arabic I learn is spoken arabic that popular in Israel and the area ,not the written one !!

Good luck to all with the Hebrew.
