> Hi everyone,
> I just signed on to b-Hebrew and I thought I'd introduce myself (I read
> a comment somewhere that this is encouraged). By the way, if anyone can

> My name is Charles Grebe. I recently graduated from Briercrest College

> I'm now working for the school as the director of distance learning.

> Aside from my administrative duties (which seems to take up most of my
> time! :) I instruct a first year Hebrew course for our distance
> students. This course uses lectures that I developed a couple of years
> ago which I host, together with some other Hebrew learning tools, at
> http://www.animatedhebrew.com/ .
> In my MA thesis I looked at the participant reference in 1 Samuel 9-31
> in an attempt to demonstrate that a knowledge of biblical Hebrew PR
> patterns can be an aide in biblical exegesis. I am not a linguist and I
> wasn't trying to advance PR theory in this thesis. I just say that to
> forewarn any DA linguists out there that might have that expectation. :)
> In 2000, my family and I had the opportunity to spend the summer in
> Israel. I took a 6 week biblical Hebrew course at Rothberg (Hebrew U of
> Jerusalem) and then we spent 10 days trying to see the rest of Israel in
> a whirlwind self-tour. It was a wonderful experience and it would be
> great to return some day.
> At the moment, my personal goal is to read as much biblical Hebrew as I
> can. I have just finished reading Genesis 1-11 with a friend who is
> writing his MA thesis on God's interior monologues. If you know of any
> good discussion of this in the literature, please let me know and I'll
> pass it on to him. I know he'd appreciate it.
> Finally, both my wife and I are taking modern Hebrew with
> HebrewOnline.com. We're in the middle of the second level (Level B) and
> are enjoying it immensely.
