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.
