and most fun way to learn the Hebrew alphabet The Aleph bet over the next 20 lessons you learn everything there is to know about reading and writing Hebrew by the end you'll even be able to read some portions of the Hebrew Bible are you ready so let's start born at real Hebrew has only one alphabet of 22 letters so it's super easy once you know these a few variations and a simple vowel system you will be ready to read one of the most ancient languages in the world as you may know the Hebrew writing system is written from right to left at first this may seem intimidating or confusing but you'll get the hang of it in no time let's start with the first letter Aleph what sound does a left make in Hebrew the name of each letter starts with the sound you use to pronounce it which means the sound of Aleph is it is handwritten like this now there are always two ways to write a letter the rhythm way which is used in everyday handwriting and the print way which you will see in books and newspapers on signs and so forth this is the written way the print version looks like this when Israeli kids first learn how to write they use this print type writing it's useful and as you'll see later very easy to learn both versions of every letter let's do it again here's the written form and here's the print form you can now write your first letter in Hebrew good let's move on the second character is bet the sound of pet is back and it looks like this pay attention to the be in the middle the print version is like this if you live out the dot bet becomes wet the sound of wet is but we don't count vet as a separate letter in the alphabet so far you've studied two letters of the Hebrew alphabet and you've learned three sounds one right and once again let's do it okay here is Aleph this is handwritten I left in print and now Bette handwritten and Bette in print then vet handwritten vet in print style did you know you can already write a word in Hebrew this is Abba ABBA in Hebrew means father it is the first word every Israeli baby says these are the simplest phonetic sounds tried out Abba in handwriting and now the print style ABBA great job in this lesson you learned the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet The Aleph bet you also practice your first word in both print and writing styles before we move on to the next lesson I want to introduce the Hebrew vowel system among 22 Hebrew letters there are five vowels one of which we learned in this lesson but beside those five there is another vowel system called Nick wood Nick wood a series of dots or points that are used to indicate vowel sounds connected to consonants once you have more experience reading Hebrew you may not see this symbol so often in native texts but if you can master them when you start learning Hebrew it will make learning Hebrew much faster and easier then you could take the form of dots lines and combinations of the two and are written in under on top or beside consonant letters sound complicated don't worry we'll take it slowly and by the end of this series that will seem easy now it's time for Anna's insights have you been writing as you watch hope so there is no better way to master the alphabet quickly than to write them yourself I also recommend that you make flashcards for each letter and study them whenever you get a chance so you know how to write Doug the word for fish in Hebrew it will definitely come in handy when you read a menu in Israel and you learned that and much more in the next lesson Ella he taught Shalom and jnana welcome to Hebrew part 101 comes alef-bet mekka lekka lutz the fastest easiest and most fun way to learn the Hebrew alphabet The Aleph bet in the last lesson we'll learn the first two letters of the alphabet do you remember them in this lesson we'll move on to the next couple of letters and the first new code symbol so let's start Bona trill the third letter of the alphabet is gimel the sound of gimel is good let's first see how to write it by hand gimel in handwriting and it printed looks like this gimel they look quite different don't they but the good news is that you already can write another Hebrew word GOG this means roof in handwriting GOG and in print it looks like this GOG here you may be a little confused if you were to see this word written you might want to read it as good there is no vowel sound in Hebrew the vowels are often not written you would know that this word is pronounced GOG because it has been taught to you before and this is why then you could is so important then you could chose learners of the Hebrew language what vowel sound is used in words but don't rely on them too much as you get more experienced with Hebrew you should be able to remember how to read words even if the new code is not attached now it's time to introduce to you the first Nick would remember Nick cooled our small points and lines that are placed in under on top or beside consonants the first one has the sound up just like Aleph this is comets and it looks like this and it's always written right under the consonant letter that's right roof a couple more times while pronouncing it sound ah so for example GOG in handwriting looks like this GOG and in print GOG also the word Abba has come at under two of its letters Abba and in print version Abha so now you can read and write two words in Hebrew using the full vowel system you can adjust the sound of the lettered gimel by writing a comma right here now it is read G as in the name George first the Gmail and then the comma on the upper left side and in print it looks like this so now let's move to the fourth letter dalet with the sound of dalit that's it just one curve for the handwriting and valid in print looks like this dalit so let's make another word with the letter G mail and dalit here Doug means fish this will come in very handy whenever you are in the restaurant let's write it da good and now in print da good now it's time for Jana insights don't get lost in studying and forget the real world fine Hebrew letters around you don't see any olive but letters around you go to Hebrew pod 101.com and check out the alphabet

roof in this lesson we will learn how to write the word for love in Hebrew are you ready so let's start Bona tree the fifth Hebrew letter is hey hey sound is ha but it can also sound like ah you will see how it changes in a second let's first write it in handwriting hey the print version is very similar hey make sure to keep hey curved while handwriting but use sharp angles in print so as I mentioned hey can sound like both ha and AH the word Ahava uses it in both ways whenhe appears in the end of the world it will always sound as ah Ahava is love in Hebrew let's try to write it down ah pronounced ha remember the sound here is so we don't need a dot of bet pronounce ah let's do it once more in handwriting I have ah ah ha ha isn't it a beautiful word with a beautiful curved shape now let's do it in print ah ha ha so if you want to add the full new code for this word we need to use an Unicode symbol but ah just like comets from last lesson pata has the sound of ah now remember when you write in modern hebrew you don't need to use the new code system it is there mostly for you to read especially when learning new vocabulary or if you want to study the Hebrew Bible now let's spell Ahava with the phony code Ahava ah ha ha Ahava here's the print version here you saw how the letter hey can sound in two different ways so you already know five u letters and several words don't forget to practice the characters in both handwriting and print now it's time for Yanis insights doesn't hate from this lesson sound like hey in English when you say hello to your friends that's exactly the sound for the Hebrew letter hey now you can think of the letter hey when saying hello to your friends and memorize it better in the next lesson we will see how one word can be pronounced in three different ways in Hebrew it may sound confusing but remember you have many could to help you see you next time legatus Shalom and jnana welcome to hebrew pod 101 comms alef-bet mekka lekka lute the fastest easiest and most fun way to learn the Hebrew alphabet The Aleph bet in the last lesson we'll learn to ride the most important word in Hebrew I have the word for love do you remember the knee code for Ahava if you're not feeling confident about it review the last lesson before continuing on from here in this lesson we will learn one new Hebrew letter and three money good are you ready so let's start Bona tree the sixth letter is love the sound of valve is V or o or o and it's written like this that's it valve has only one stroke from top to the bottom the print version is the same for valve with only a small difference in Hebrew valve is not only the name of the character it's also a world by itself it means a hook doesn't valve look like a hook like this it's just a letter valve to times if you want to Edna could it will look like this now we move on to the next Nick good symbol lyric with a sound e like in C it's just one dot under the letter e now you can write a very common name one that belongs to the second and perhaps most famous king of the ancient kingdom of israel dahveed it's written with two ballot and one valve then it could hear is important otherwise it can have different pronunciation and meaning let's write this word the vid and now in print the vid the next knee code for this lesson is shook with a sound ooh this is how you make valve sound like ooh for example if we take the same letters from the vid and instead of click we add choke it will be dude electric water heater perhaps now you can appreciate the power of learning than you could when you first start in Hebrew let's write this word dude and now in print dude notice how shook goes to the left of the valve sink complicated don't worry we will review them all at the end of this lesson but not before we will learn the last nick code for today column male with a sound of oh this is how you make valve sound like Oh let's write this oh the dot and now in print daaad notice that holla male appears above the valve now shoo and holla male are only written with a letter valve and not with any other letter farik however will appear below other letters now let's see all the last three examples together and make sense of them first we had the vid don't and Dodd now let's have a short quiz I'll show you the new code symbol next to a letter and you have to pronounce it sound ready ah ooh II Oh ah now it's time for Yanis insights since you will not see any code in modern readings in Israel you will have to guess by the context of the sentence which pronunciation and meaning it has it all comes with experience of studying Hebrew vocabulary another tip is when writing the letter valve it is important to keep the length of the stroke inside the frame otherwise it becomes a different letter but that's for later so in this lesson we study the letter valve and three knee code in Hebrew Pyrrhic shook and challah male in the next lesson we will learn two more Hebrew letters sign and head see you then bye Shalom and jnana welcome to Hebrew patois no one comes alive with the Kalika lute the fastest easiest and most fun way to learn the Hebrew alphabet The

handwriting yes you're right there are the mirror images of each other but don't get confused between them gmail faces this way sign faces this way okay how about the print version fortunately this one will be hard to confuse with the print version of Gmail even though they are pretty different in print make sure you don't write sign and valve into similar away let's see the difference valve zine voof is a fly in Hebrew Veuve and in print you Veuve you can easily remember this word since the fly makes this sound let's move on if you write sign with a comma on the left side it will sound like Shaz in the word journal or collage first you write sign and then add the comma on the upper left side in print usually the letter G is used for foreign words like jacket a jacket journal a journal and so forth now we move on to the eighth letter read this has the sound of and it is written like this for the handwriting keep the corners round and in print Hut almost the same right always
