Welcome to the Letter-of-the-Week Hebrew mini-course! Bruchim Habaim:)
This course consists of twenty-two lessons. Why twenty-two lessons?
Exactly - Each lesson corresponds to a Hebrew letter - so starting with Alef - the first letter - and ending with Tav - the last letter - there are twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet - the Alef-Bet.
But this course is not just about reviewing the Hebrew Alef-Bet. It’s much more than that! It’s about letters and vowels, pronunciation, reading, writing and plenty of - hamon - vocabulary - ozzar milim.
Most of all, this mini-course is a lot of fun and very rewarding. Here’s why:
Each lesson may be studied in one of two ways - as an interactive presentation on our second Hebrew learning website, Hebrew-Teacher.com, or by watching a video tutorial.
Each lesson deals with one letter. The first lesson is dedicated to the letter Alef, the second to the letter Bet, the third to Gimel, and so on.
Each letter is reviewed with all the possible vowels. You will learn how the letter Alef, for example, is written and pronounced with Kamazz, with Patach, with Segol and with Zzere, with Cholam Male, with Cholam Chaser, with Shuruk and Chataf Patach.
Second step - the letter, with all of the various vowelizations, will be used as the first letter in different Hebrew words. The letter Alef, for example, is demonstrated with the Patach by the word Ahava, with the Segol by the word Efroach, and so on.
Letter by letter, vowel by vowel - we cover all the possible Hebrew combinations of Otiyot-ve-Nikud - letters-plus-vowels.
We call this mini-course - Letter-of-the-Week. Use it as the name suggests - take on one letter per week, use the online interactive presentations and the video sessions, learn all of the vocabulary examples we provide you with, take the video quiz provided at the end of each lesson - and after twenty-two weeks you will not only know all about the Hebrew Alef-Bet, and the way each of its letters is pronounced with any vowel, but also become the proud owner of a beautiful and versatile word bank consisting of more than two-hundred Hebrew words.
