I can't help but be curious, why do you think you must learn 
Ugaritic to learn Hebrew? If it is a requirement from a professor 
for class, that makes sense, and the various resources from such 
as Yitzhak are a good place to start.

Yitzhak has some strong beliefs that are not shared by all 
members of this list, and for that reason is a strong proponent 
for learning Ugaritic. What is your excuse?
