Learning the Hebrew Alphabet |
Practicing the Letter Sounds
We will practice recognizing the Hebrew letters we have learned in Lesson One by sounding them out using English words that sound like the Hebrew letters when they are grouped together. We are not learning Hebrew words. We are merely practicing the sounds of the Hebrew letters.
For example, could be pronounced as hal, hall or hell. The first letter, on the right, is heh, the second letter is vav, and the third letter, on the left, is lamed, written below as lamed – vav – heh. So to find the name of the letters, look at the names of the letters starting from the right.
Cover up the second and third columns in the next table and start with each set of Hebrew letters on the left. Say the names of each of these Hebrew letters and then guess what English word(s) would sound like the group of Hebrew letters in the left column.
In Hebrew, the "w" sound is represented by two vavs. Working with the next table will give you some practice in learning this, as well as other letters.
Please keep in mind that none of the above are actual words in Hebrew. The purpose is just to get some practice recognizing the Hebrew letters introduced to us in this first lesson.
