One of the best ways to learn a foreign language is by watching a movie. If you are watching a movie or listening to Hebrew radio stations you are effectively spending time on learning the language and having fun at the same time. Moreover, if you manage to understand what is going on in the movie or the radio you can feel great satisfaction and you gain a proof for yourself that you can use your Aramaic / Hebrew ability in practice.

There are a few Hebrew radio stations online that you could listen to. One of them is Arutz Sheva (Israel National News). Galim.tv by Snunit Center for the Advancement of Web Based Learning, Israel is an educational portal for kids where you could watch video clips online.
Using Hebrew search engines to search Hebrew web sites could help you further improve your comprehension of the language. You can try Israel's major portals like Walla, Nana, Tapuz, Hareshima, and Jewish.net at http://www.ultimasurf.com to familiarize yourself with the language.

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (Deuteronomy 6:7)
It is cool to listen to God's Word in the original language, memorize it, and meditate upon it while you are on the way to work, shopping, jogging, etc.
Listening to Hebrew songs is another effective way to help you to learn the language as you are able to learn how the words are pronounced, memorize the lyrics in Hebrew, and enjoy the songs at the same time. My favourite Hebrew singer is Sarit Hadad. She is my number 2 favourite Israeli singer after King David and the Psalmists of course. She is the contemporary Queen of Israeli music (Israel's Celine Dion). You could try to listen to my favourite Sarit Hadad's song "Shema Yisrael" or visit her web site at
www. sarit .co.il/ (one of the coolest web sites I have ever visited).
