I learned the basics of biblical Hebrew in just about 3 days, and now after three weeks, am faring even better using the book "Learn Biblical Hebrew" by Rev John Dobson. Of course, my vocabulary is tiny, but I know grammar/sentence structures of Hebrew, and can tell whether a verb is feminine, masculine, or plural.

But I always thought there was just one type of Hebrew until recently. I originally wanted to SPEAK hebrew, so is that still possible after learning how to read/write biblical/ancient hebrew or are these two separate projects?
