Week Four is Formidable

In the first class of week four we learn about silent letters and a place holder vowel. It’s a whole new category of letter and you did great.

In the second class of week four we learn the Kaf, Chaf and Vav plus LOTS of variations:)

Here are the classes in case you missed one or two:

 

The second pictogram is a great way to review what we learned in weeks 3 and 4:) C U soon!!

Three Down Three To Go!

 

I’m having a great time I hope you are too:)

In our first class of week three we learned the letters Koof (looks like a key and sounds like the English letter K) and the Samech (looks circular and sounds like the English letter S.)

 

In our second class of week three we learned the letter Mem and Final Mem. The Mem looks like a mountain and sounds like the English letter M. We also learned the letter Tet that has a lovely tail and makes the sound of the English letter T.

For me it was super fun to teach the proper pronunciation of the word Mahn (manna.)

There is a typo in the class title on this class. It’s actually Week 3 Class #2

Week four will be the best!

Week #2 We Have You Covered:)

Wasn’t this week THE BEST!?  Two weeks ago we learned the basics of Hebrew reading and used the English word banana as a reading example. And now, at the end of week two we can already independently read the word banana in Hebrew (you say banana in Hebrew too;)
When we read the word banana in Hebrew it was such a fun collective “aha” moment! I just HAD to design this fun t-shirt🙂

The Banana T-shirt is newly available on my Hebrew lifestyle shop EEVREET.com  I can’t wait to see people wearing it. It’s going to be such a great conversation starter!!


Week 2 Class 2 RECAP

In this class we learned the letter Noon (sounds like ‘N’ and looks like a nose.) We also learned about a category of letters called final letters and the Final Noon (same ‘N’ sound and looks like a nail getting hammered into the ground.) Final letters are only found at the end of a word.

We also learned two new vowels. The tzehreh and the sehgol. They both make the same sound as the English letter combination “eh.”

Here’s a cute biweekly summary to help boost your memory of the last two weeks of classes:

Week three is going to be amazing!

xo,

Week 2 of the 6 week course is off to a SUPER start. Yay!

It’s not too late to catch up! If you’re just starting now you’ve missed about an hour and a half of laid back class time. You’ll fly through the replays and you can join us later this week for class #4:) Here’s a link to the replays:
class #1                       class #2                  class #3.

In class #3 we learn 2 new letters. The Hey ה and the Chet ח.

The Hey sounds like the English letter H and looks like a house with a hole.

The Chet looks very similar to the Hey but has no hole. We imagined the smoke from the fireplace in that house building up inside and causing us to choke. The Chet makes a sound not found in the English language. It’s kind of a chokey sound like at the end of the composer’s name Bach. We practiced different ways to get used to pronouncing (choking out) this unusual letter.

I love love love getting to know my students. It’s a real motivation for me to hear more about where you’re watching from and who you are. Please send an email when you have a chance:)

Class #2 was awesome! And it’s still a gr8 time to join:)

In this class we learned 3 letters and two vowels. With a mnemonic trick for each letter and two vowels that both make the same sound I tried to make the process really easy.

We learned the Hebrew letter Bet (ball in a box), Gimmel (guy playing golf) and Daled (door.) We also learned the vowels Kamatz and Patach that both make the sound of the English letter combination “ah.”

Hebrew Letter Gimmel

We were able to start reading simple words that have those three letters and two vowels in different combinations. We were able to correct our pronunciation of a common Biblical name Gad (properly pronounced Gahd) by reading it in the original Hebrew.

We completed the first week with an incredible class energy – shoutout to @hotdogLA and @tulip3650 and Nai for your class input. I’m so looking forward to next week’s classes!

If you missed the class, here’s a replay of class #2

A Super Start to our Hebrew Classes!

Class #1 was awesome. Yay!

In class #1 we learned the two tricks of the Hebrew language.

Trick 1: We read Hebrew from right to left
Trick 2: The consonants are on the line like in English but the vowels hang below the line.

Those are ALL the tricks to reading Hebrew. Hebrew is a perfectly phonetic language. That means you pronounce just what you see. No funny business like in English. Just try to explain to a non English speaker how to read the words through, trough, thorough, and tough. Hebrew is NOT like that.

In class #1 we also learned our first letter! The letter Bet.

Class #2 is TODAY

Wednesday at 8:30pm Jerusalem time! That’s 1:30pm on the east coast and 10:30am on the west coast.

If you missed the first class:
Here’s the replay of class #1.

I’m also going to do a quick recap of class #1 at the beginning of class #2. It’s not too late to join:)

See you there.
