Tips for learning a new Alphabet or Language Script? I'm interested in learning Lebanese Arabic, Hebrew, and Japanese... I already have expeience with self - teaching ( as I am currently teaching myself German, and it's going very well), but what freaks me out is the prospect of learing a forgeign script, as I have no idea where to start. Any ideas or recommendations would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi Brandon! I cannot speak specifically for Arabic or Hebrew script, but as a Mandarin teacher, one of the strategies that I use when teaching my high school students is to see Chinese characters in parts rather than just strokes. Of course, when we first start learning how to read and write them, we learn about the strokes, but over time, we aim for finding the different parts of characters that they're already familiar with. If you're aiming to learn Japanese, this could be a helpful strategy, since Japanese writing uses many Chinese characters.
