שלום לכולם --
Currently in Atlanta -- I have been trying on and off to learn hebrew for many years and have made a few strides here and there but haven't been able to push through to the next level. I've really been pushing it for the past year and while I can get around in Israel, conversations with friends are primarily in English still. Just started doing some reading, listening to podcasts, and have a weekly tutor. Ultimately I wish to be able to talk to my friends and not have to rely on English. Can read and write alright but listening comprehension has been my biggest barrier.
