Bit at a Time Bible Hebrew -- Subject Review II

I’m sorry, I changed my mind.  I figured it was better to do a subject review here, and then the lessons about  using  a dictionary to look up verbs.
After that I’ll do  an overview of the  binyanim and how to tell them apart.
Then I’ll give you a list of the 30 most common verbs in Genesis and possibly in all of Torah.  Memorize their conjugations and you’ll cut your dictionary time. 
Finally, there will be about 50 lessons on Biblical Hebrew grammar that I only learned about after reading a doctoral dissertation I found online in 2014.  It dovetails with other things I’ve learned in the last 15 years and it will really turn your head around about what Torah says, but at the same time it tells you things that lead directly to some midrashim and some halakhah.  It doesn’t get much better than that.
