I'm going to apply for a scholarship to go to Israel to study Hebrew this summer. There are two options available, Biblical Hebrew, and Modern Hebrew. From what I've understood googling a bit, Modern Hebrew is still quite similar to Biblical Hebrew. To what extent is this true? Are you able to read and understand Biblical Hebrew if you're fluent in Modern Hebrew? Does it go the other way round, i.e. can I get by in modern Israel if I only learn Biblical Hebrew? Sorry for possible repost.
