Reading some words
Now let’s get some practice reading the Hebrew letters and vowels you have just learned by reading some Hebrew words which you already know. It's true—if you are like most English speakers, you already know (or at least half-know) quite a few Hebrew words. Thus, there is no better place to start reading.
To get the most out of this exercise, do the following for each word.
- Try to read the word aloud before listening to it.
Remember to read the Hebrew right-to-left!
- Click the play button a few times to hear the word spoken.
Try to mimic the pronunciation of the word each time.
- Note the meaning of the word and other words related to it.
Noting these built-in associations is a great way to expand your vocab quickly.
