Learning the Hebrew alphabet and Hebrew words...

Hebrew Alphabet and Hebrew Letters
Hello and welcome to my post on the Hebrew Alphabet.

Find here a collection of videos teaching you the basics of the Hebrew letter sounds and vowel accents.

And, as always, you can find some study materials for Hebrew at my post Hebrew Language Resources.

I will be constantly updating this post, so please Email me if you find more resources for learning Hebrew.

I have searched around quite a bit and this series of videos is definitely one of the best for learning the Hebrew alphabet: Their step-by-step approach to the teaching of the Hebrew letters is so well planned and systematic that you can easily learn to read Hebrew.

If you follow their advice, and study for at least 20 minutes a day (even if you only watch the videos, I suppose), you will be reading Hebrew words in no time.

So here they are:

Hebrew Alphabet: Introduction, letters "aleph", "bet" and vowel sounds

Hebrew Alphabet: letters from "aleph" to "dalet" and vowel sounds

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "hey" and "vav", letter sound "segol":

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "zain" and "chet", vowel sound "sheva"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "te" and "iud", vowel sound "qubutz"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "kaf" and Khaf", vowel "zeyre"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "lamed" and "mem", vowel "chirik"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "nun" and "samech", vowel "cholem"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "Ain" and "Peh"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "tzadeh" and "kuf"

Hebrew Alphabet: Letters "resh", "shin" (or "sin") and "taf"
