I have been learning biblical Hebrew with great pain, sweat and tears but loving it nonetheless.
The only resources I can speak about with any personal experience are:
1.Biblical Hebrew from Yodea on CD for Mac and Windows (available from Accordance in fact). It is essentially a comprehensive method with a native speaker. One problem is that on the Mac it is for the PowerPC chip, not Intel so it wont run with Lion on up now that Rosetta has been removed. I run it under WINXP in a virtual machine (Virtual Box to be exact, which is free). But the pronunciation is great, done by a native speaker and yes, it differs from Pratico in that it is a mother-tongue speaker. That's as pure as you can get. But Pratico does do a good job as far as a native English speaker goes. As for modern Hebrew, it has not changed much in pronunciation as far we can tell. There are, however, no longer vowel markings and the vocabulary has changed. But many things are still in use. I was excited to put some biblical hebrew vocabulary to the test with a man from Israel who sat next to me at a dinner party a few months ago. Sure enough, the few words I spoke to him were still the same in modern Hebrew.
2. Hebrew Tutor, from Parsons Technology. It's quite dated, has a bunch of errors in it, but it does give you a full set of vocabulary, exercises, drills etc, which do really aid you in learning the material. It runs best under WIN95-WINXP, so I use it in a virtual machine on my Mac. Dr. Hildebrandt does a good job but his pronunciation is clearly not authentic. This becomes especially obvious when trying to distinguish vowels compared to the nuances a native speaker will give you. Parsons never released an update and I basically would avoid this particular product at this point.
There are online courses available too, with native speakers as I recall, but I have never used them so I can't say for sure how they are. Nor am I by any means a Hebrew scholar or even an advanced student. But that's been my experience.
EDIT: I see while I was still typing Michael and Dr. Holmstedt posted. Awesome links Dr. Holmstedt, thank you!
