Interesting Fact

Although Hebrew now has over 9 million speakers it was once only learned as a written language. Eliezer Ben-Yehuda was the first person to write a Hebrew dictionary and the first person in ca. 2000 years to revive Hebrew as a spoken language and bring his children up to speak Hebrew.


Hebrew is a Semitic language spoken mostly in Israel where it is an official language alongside Arabic. The USA has the second largest Hebrew speaking population. Hebrew is written from right-to-left but curiously, the question mark is written left-to-right, as in English.

Hebrew is thought to have nearly died out between 600BC and 400 AD after it was displaced by Aramaic and other languages, through a series of conquests of Hebrew-speaking lands. It enjoyed a revival in the 19th century.
