Welcome to the Aleph-Bet level of Learning Hebrew!

This level is aimed at junior-high students and older, and can be used by anyone with firm foundations in the English language who wants to begin to learn the Hebrew language or any language that uses the Hebrew alphabet (Yiddish, Ladino, Aramaic etc.).

The goal of this level is to make you capable of reading Hebrew. Any vocabulary or grammar information you may learn in any of the lesson is given to you to enhance your reading and interpreting skills. You will re-learn them anyway in the next lessons. This is also true for the vocabulary exercises.

The lessons are cumulative, which means that they are based on the presumption that you know the material learned in the former lesson.

Lesson Layout[edit]

Every lesson is structured in the following way:

  • Centred title in which you are given the chronological position of the lesson and the letters you will learn in it.
  • A brief introduction that states what letters and niqqud symbols you will learn.
  • Each letter will be written using the Hebrew-Huge template.
  • Under the letter will be the letter's name and position in the alphabet, its pronunciation, IPA equivalent and example from the English or closely-related languages.
  • Some further notes will be given about the letter's final and "soft" form (if it has any).
  • Niqqud symbols would be placed under either Ħet, Vav, Shin or Bet, though the standard is on Bet.
  • Under the niqqud symbol would be the symbol's name and sound, as well as some extra notes if there is need of any.
  • Grammar notes if any.
  • Vocabulary that can be put together from the letters and/or vowels you've learned. Again, any vocabulary or grammar information you may learn in any of the lesson is given to you to enhance your reading and interpreting skills. It is of no importance in regards to your knowledge of the Hebrew language, and you will re-learn it anyway.
  • Summary of what you have learned in the lesson.
  • Link to the corresponding exercise page. Each exercises page would include letters and niqqud exercises, vocabulary exercises and reading-without-vowels exercises, at the end of which you would be directed to either the corresponding lesson or to the next lesson.
  • Link to the next lessons.
  • Every five lessons there would be a review of what you've learned in the past five lessons.

Good luck!
