The U.S. Foreign Service Institute came out with it in 1965. It comes with a workbook and forty units on 'cassette'. (Remember those?)
Two interesting things about this course. One, their transliteration is unique. For instance, the letter chet is transliterated with the letter x. And two, it's modern Hebrew, but...old modern Hebrew. Like how your grandparents talked. It's a hipster Hebrew course!

Mayeen is a member of the Holy Language tribe, and - this is different - she doesn't follow Yeshua, and is learning Hebrew! Here's her story.
Hi there! I'm just going to follow the format laid out to me in the "tell your story" section at holylanguage.com.
1. How did I start following Yeshua? I actually don't follow Yeshua, in the most commonly thought-of sense. I am Muslim and regard him as one of many prophets but I do not consider him the son of god or the messiah. 2. How and why you started learning Hebrew: I began studying Christianity in detail in the fall of 2013. I flew through the basics and even the New Testament but the Old Testament really fascinated me. Being fascinated with the Old Testament obviously leads to a healthy interest in Hebrew and I started to think about studying Hebrew seriously. 3. How you found us and what you've been learning: I am seriously studying the Old Testament this summer and began by listening to the recitation of the Masoretic text in Hebrew. I was listening to a recitation on Youtube when I came across a video talking about holylanguage.com 4. I just graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BA in Biology and will be attending medical school in the fall. I have a free summer before medical school and so am using it to pursue my academic interests: comparative religions, philosophy, and the Old Testament.
Have a good one!
You have a story too, and the tribe would love to hear it! Share here?
This is your chance to read Genesis 3 in Hebrew with me, and learn the words for cunning, crave, desire, intelligence, girding on weapons and armour, bruise, rule, and toil!
