I Really Need to Learn Hebrew

I've started on on-line Tanakh study class. The lectures are for the most part in English. But some of it's in Hebrew. Like when he uses an anagram for Miriam and how by just changing the Hebrew vowelization it changes the meaning and then ties the Tanakh portion we are studying to earlier portions. He also used the example of two Hebrew words that were very specifically used in the portion being studied that tells us there's more than meets the eye. We need to explore why those specific words were used instead of the more common ones. It was a good way to spend Shabbat yesterday. Rashi was even used.

So far, this is fun but I think I would enjoy it more if I knew Hebrew.
