In the first 10 lessons of level 2, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex, and informal speech is introduced. Conversations become fuller, and learners are able to discuss business and social activities, manage shopping situations, and express their interests. As you progress, vocabulary is expanded, and fluency increases.
The next 10 lessons of level 2 allow you to further combine and build upon known elements and produce longer and more complex sentences. You learn to bargain with shopkeepers, deal with business situations, get and give medical information, and discuss the weather.
In the final 10 lessons of level 2, you've doubled your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You'll gain experience asking for assistance, finding a location that is some distance away, and using relative structures - faster, slower, etc. Sports and leisure activities are explored as well as shopping, changing money, and future travel plans. By the end of level 2, you're speaking at a midintermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.
Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Hebrew and to provide you with some insight into Hebrew culture, with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at some of the things you'll see when visiting Israel. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

Great for continuing beginners
Would you consider the audio edition of Hebrew Phase 2, Units 1-30 to be better than the print version?
Any additional comments?
I find they don't repeat statements as they do in Phase 1 as much, so it moves a lot quicker. I've had to listen to some classes twice to understand everything. But it's probably the best Hebrew course I've found. I wish they would leave more time to say the Hebrew phrase though, I find myself half way through a phrase when they're already onto the next!
