I heard a lot of it is written in Aramaic or a dialect of Hebrew? So if one were to learn Hebrew, specifically modern Hebrew, what percentage of the Talmud would they understand? What percentage of the Babylonian Talmud would you estimate is written in Aramaic? And for those who speak Hebrew natively do you completely understand the language of the Talmud?
Would learning Hebrew help me read the Babylonian Talmud?
