Learn Hebrew Writing 1 - Hebrew Alphabet Made Easy: Alef and Beit with English subtitles  

Shalom and jnana

welcome to hebrew pod 101 comms alef-bet

Bekele khalood the fastest easiest 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 ah it is

handwritten like this now

there are always two ways to write a

letter the written 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 butt and it looks like this pay

attention to the dot it has to 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 then once again let's

do it okay here is LF this is


Alif in print

but handwritten and bet 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 try it out Abba in


and now the print style ABBA

great job in this lesson you learn 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

Yanis 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

do 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 learn that and much more

in the next lesson like he taught
