I agree with the above comments, including the request for an answer key. I frequently return to Ha-yesod to refresh my understanding of certain usages. Also, I would like to know if there is a second Ha-Yesod to carry students to a higher level of study. I totally recommend this book to any student that wants to learn the Hebrew Language.

Excellent text for getting into the mechanics, i.e., the depth of the language while learning it. For the average person not knowing any Hebrew and wanting to just learn basics of everyday simple speech, aka, more so the casual learner, I feel this would be too intense. Also, I would suggest a study companion with tons of exercises to go along with the chapters for reinforcement as well as review.
This text is great for class and self-study. It would be SUPERIOR if there were an answer key available.
I tried many textbooks to teach myself Hebrew and found that this was the best. It was the only one that really built a foundation, as the title suggests. Words that are introduced are used in later chapters, building a solid foundation. I wholeheartedly recommend this text to anyone who wants to learn Hebrew.
My professor at Hebrew College [Boston] used this as an auxilliary text, and I am reviewing Hebrew grammar with it. The brief stories, Q&A about story and exercises are well written. The grammar points are concise. What is missing? a systematic review of grammar [e.g. comparing all the forms of adjectives in one place] and an answer key [desperately needed for self-study!].
