Sfateinu - A book for learning the Hebrew language according to the natural method by Tzvi Sharfstein and Raphael Soferman, published by Simcha Freund, Przemyśl, Poland, 1931. Pictures and paintings.
A book for learning the Hebrew language for first year school children. Teaching Hebrew through pictures and contexts using a method developed by the authors meant to attract the young student's heart to Hebrew study, unlike previous methods which made learning the language difficult. Impressive Art Nouveau cover.
The natural learning method was part of a broader "Hebrew in Hebrew" movement which advocated teaching the language through the language itself. Its creator was Yehuda (Gruszowski) Gur. Later Sharfstein made the method public domain through illustrations and emphasis on content learned.
