Your cursive H looks a little off to my eyes... in some places it's easy to misread it as a CH. But then again, I haven't studied Hebrew for what, two years?

Why did you start studying Hebrew?

There's supposed to be a space between the two, I know. I haven't written Hebrew much
for a while now, so reverting to old failures :)

I started learning Hebrew for the same reason I started learning Romanian a long time
ago. My first words of Hebrew I learned from an ex-girlfriend and her family. (The same
girl also spoke Romanian). Since then, I learned more Romanian (was of more use) but I
did hear Hebrew spoken occasionally, especially if there were visitors around. I have
been to several birthday parties where people spoke Hebrew amongst each other, and also
went to a Pesach dinner (which was mostly Hebrew and also some French).

I never learned much Hebrew during this time (Romanian I remember more of) but I got
interested in it, and when the time came some years later after the split I returned to
Hebrew. I love the language, it's mythical to me and I want to travel in Israel one
day.

To tell you the truth, many of the languages I have learned (with a few exceptions)
have some origins in whom I met or whom I loved or something like that :) Or I knew
somebody who...

For Swedish and Russian I originally didn't know anyone who spoke them, but for Russian
that's changed enormously and for Swedish somewhat less. Russian I speak regularly.

That said, Hebrew is a language I really want to speak well. In some languages I know
I'm doing it for the hell of it (Korean comes to mind) but not for Hebrew...

Same for me, actually - I besically started Hebrew when I dated an Israeli, although the studying lasted longer than the dating :D While I really like the sound of Hebrew, unfortunately I just don't have much use for it nowadays. I still listen to a lot of music in Hebrew, though. Just love some of these artists/bands. אלג'יר is great, for example, as well as some of אברהם טל and אפרת גוש.

Well, no love stories in my case, but actually if not my friends, I wouldn't probably like to start with Dutch, Slovene, Persian and Georgian... Probably with Italian too.

Coincidentally, Lacuna Coil is the the last English-language music I purchased before
switching to "Korean-only" mode for music (which was about 4 years ago now). I've never
heard any of their Italian stuff (though I knew they were an Italian band). In fact, I only really
learned they existed in the first place via the Guitar Hero / Rock Band series of games.
