This site has a transliteration of the original Hebrew that will allow you to study the original language. I have to say.. it's really really interesting to speak and hear these verses in their original linguistic context. http://biblelexicon.org/genesis/1-1.htm Here is a link to a Hebrew course.. it's modern Hebrew so it won't be directly applicable to the OT but it would help you read modern Hebrew books and analysis of the OT. The Hebrew Basic Course is designed to teach spoken and written modern Hebrew that is the ordinary, informal speech of educated native Israelis. It is not intended as a text for the study of the Old Testament or other Hebrew literature. http://fsi-language-courses.org/Content.php?page=Hebrew The teacher in this short tutorial reads directly from Genesis 1:3 so you can follow along with the first link and learn pronunciation.
