Similarities in Hebrew and Arabic learning material


Recommended Posts

Has anyone else noticed that in so many courses for Hebrew and Arabic there seems to be a familiar structure. I've noticed that the word for House 'bait', which is the same in both languages is usually the first noun taught.

I know they are both Semitic languages so maybe that has something to do with it.

Both being Semitic languages is the key as to why they are similar. Though most words are different from each other. I've seen most people who are studying Hebrew would often study Arabic because of the similar structures from each other and with what's going on in the world today, they are able to understand/becoming a part of it all efficiently.

That's a great observation though. As someone of Jewish descent who is trying to learn Hebrew, I never think about what Hebrew can be relatively like. :)
