    I’m doing some research (and by that I primarily mean watching videos and reading blog posts) because I’d like for this year to be the year I start to learn Hebrew. I had the idea to get some of my favourite books as Hebrew audiobooks to help get a feel for the language while also studying the grammar and vocab more traditionally. I can’t seem to find many audiobooks (of books I’d already know – English literature) in Hebrew, though. Do you happen to know where I could source these things? In particular I’d love to start with Jane Austen. Also, do you think this kind of thing would be an effective tool alongside language learning programs?
