at the bottom right hand of the blog are some further resources worth checking out.

you can download robert d. holmstedt's pdf ancient hebrew: a student grammar textbook f.o.c. (which he co-wrote with john d. cook). it is still a draft copy. clicking on the PDF link on the top leads you to journal articles in pdf form that he has written mainly about hebrew:

and below is another great site for learning hebrew. you can start with the hebrew alphabet sung (a mp3 download of the song is available). they even have audio files and flash files teaching hebrew using allen p. ross's biblical hebrew book. they have flash cards to learn hebrew verbs and hebrew nouns. and you can find the classic piece about abbot and costello (comedy duo from the 50's black and white TV) learning hebrew which i show to students in hebrew class to illustrate the fun of learning hebrew. remember the phrase - 'who is hi? hi is shi!' :

Esther Raizen has put some good stuff on the Hebrew site at the University of Text at Austin.
Also, if you go to Audio Scripture International, there is a free recording of the entire Tanakh in Hebrew.

For teaching vocabulary (whichever textbook or aproach you use) try Biblical Hebrew Vocabularies teachers can select words and output multimedia vocabularies and printable "flashcards" for students.
