UPDATE: We have a winner, Ken Brown. Congratulations!
I’m inspired by some fellow bloggers to get a contest going on this blog (and no, Ros, I haven’t forgotten that you won the prize for posting the first comment on the “new” blog. I’ve got your surprise ready for SBL). I’ve had several people comment or contact me about the Hebrew letter magnets for the ‘fridge. So, I’ve decided that I will offer one set of these magnets as a prize. Since this is the first time I’ve done this, I’ll run the contest for 2 weeks (ending October 10th).
Here’s how it will work. I want to gather a list of as many Biblical Hebrew vocabulary resources as possible. So, to enter, you need to list ONE vocabulary resource (like a specific flashcard program) in the comments of this post. Be specific, give a URL or detailed information where the resource can be found. You should also give a brief description (and maybe whether or not you have used the resource yourself). You can enter more than once, but each time has to have a different Hebrew vocabulary resource. AND YOU CANNOT USE A RESOURCE THAT HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY POSTED FOR THIS CONTEST, so be sure to read the comments first. I am particularly interested in finding computer apps, online programs, and iPhone type apps. Basically, I want to find anything that will help students learn vocabulary (besides the obvious task of reading the Hebrew Bible!). I will randomly choose a winner from all valid entries. Be sure to include your email address (it won’t be posted) so that I can contact you if you win.
I’ll put all the resources together into a master list and post it on my Hebrew Resources page for future reference.
