Is there any hope of really learning Hebrew in the short time of a regular course? After all, many people study Spanish for years and never acquire any truly usable abilities.

Because of these techniques, Shush… is especially helpful for special-needs and phobic learners; it is built to address different learning styles, and helps ordinary students learn to use Hebrew more effectively.
