Hebrew is spoken by 9 million people worldwide, the majority of these living in Israel where it is an official language alongside Arabic. The United States has the second-largest Hebrew speaking population, and Hebrew is spoken throughout the world. Cactus runs group Hebrew courses in London.
As a foreign language, Hebrew is studied most commonly by Jews and students of Israel and Judaism. It is also useful for linguists and archaeologists who specialise in the Middle East and its civilisations, and for theologians. The Hebrew language found in the Bible is known as Biblical or Classical Hebrew: while Classical Hebrew is still used in prayer, Modern Hebrew is the language that is spoken today.
