Learning a language, modern or ancient, requires that we engage every component of our human language acquisition abilities. For too long ancient languages were taught more like math than languages. The focus was on paradigms and piecemeal analysis. Tools like Scheumanns' According to Their Kinds allow us to break free from the worn out grammar-translation models and engage students with stimuli rooted in research on how we acquire languages. This well-designed visual resource recognizes that memory utilizes sense-based cues to acquire vocabulary. I am sure that According to Their Kinds will serve teachers and students extremely well, resulting in deeper comprehension and longer retention of Biblical Hebrew.

According to Their Kinds is a splendid resource for moving Hebrew learners away from thinking about vocabulary as merely English glosses toward broader cognitive concepts. The integration of words, clauses, and images serves to reinforce better understanding of Hebrew language. Furthermore, the chapter groupings are ideal for conceptualizing the relationships between similar terms and ideas. This tool will help beginning, intermediate, and even advanced students find renewed enjoyment in studying Hebrew vocabulary.

Chip Hardy, Associate Professor of Old Testament & Semitic Languages, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary; author, Exegetical Gems from Biblical Hebrew

If we're not careful, with resources like Picture Hebrew and According to Their Kinds, learning Hebrew vocabulary might actually become intuitive and enjoyable. We, Biblical Hebrew teachers, won't stand for that! For those teachers of the language who, however, want their students to learn more and suffer less, I highly recommend this resource.
