My video, “Painting with the Big Bang of Genesis” won the top prize from Ulpan Or’s Facebook contest. SEE: http://www.ulpanor.com/2011/ulpan-or%E2%80%99s-free-online-hebrew-course-contest-%E2%80%93-the-awards/
The contest asked contestants to answer the question, “Why I love Hebrew”. Watch the winning video below to see the amazing correlations between Torah font Hebrew and elementary physics as depicted in the radical new Post Conceptual UnGraven Image Art.
My first lesson was two days ago, and I am already saying some phrases and answering simple conversational questions. The materials include Ulpan Or’s book, a CD to listen and review what I am learning, plus, a wonderful and patient teacher, Miri, who I will be working with over our Skype connection.
The most difficult subject for me to learn, even just pass has always been foreign languages, in both high school and college. I am so visually orientated that learning to speak and understand another language is difficult. After many years of French studies, I can read French fairly well, but understanding what is said to me is difficult, beyond elementary phrases.
However, I am applying myself diligently, and am finding that the approach of Ulpan Or, through the one-to-one teaching over the phone and the CD quickly gives me more listening experience and also engages my participation.
It is my hope that my mouth will speak Hebrew as well as my hands “speak” Hebrew’s Torah font in my art. To watch that happen, see the video below.
