I found this video series a while ago that teaches Esperanto by only speaking Esperanto. It starts with simple phrases and then builds up from there.

Does something like this exist for Hebrew? I searched for it without success but I suppose someone may have captioned it in a language other than English, in which case it wouldn't come up in my search results.

If for free, I would recommend Dr. Bill Barrick's series which is available on YouTube. Here is a link to the first in the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvh8yziVsCE However, I cannot recommend it because you cannot get the book or study materials that goes with the series.

I far prefer Dr. Mile's VanPelt's "Basics for Biblical Hebrew" series. He has the first 3 chapters available for free on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIfLf_ffDyw

The reason I recommend Basics for Biblical Hebrew is that it has every resource that a self-learner would want. Videos, flashcards, cheat sheets, computer flashcards, etc. My copy of "Biblical Hebrew A Compact Guide" is taped together and totally shot because I use it so much.

Once you get the reading/writing down: This series is probably what you want: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr9amXnFRrs

    Thanks for a thorough set of resources. I actually do have BBH and I can do some basic paradigms and parsing etc. But I don't want to go any further with grammar because I find that learning grammar is unhelpful for language acquisition (despite the fact that I'm an amateur linguist). For this reason, I'm very specifically requesting direct-method material (i.e. People teaching the language using only the language).
