New Vocabulary

Okay so I’m going to post a ton of vocabulary in the new vocabulary section.  This section will be for those of you who already know the basics and just want to improve your speaking skills by adding new words.  That said there won’t be any exercises in this section just vocabulary 🙂

p.s  almost all the words in this section will be modern Hebrew, just so you know.

Lesson 5: Tav

The Tav

ת has two forms; one with a degesh תּ and one without ת

The dagesh in this letter does not change the letter’s sound or the letter’s name.

The Tav:

ת ,תּ makes the ‘T’ sound as in Toy.

Again we will not be adding any new vowels at this point.

Exercises: read the folowing aloud. (Remember to practice writing your letters)

תַ   תֵ   תָּ   תֵּ   תַת   תֵּת   תַּתַּ   תֵתָ

שֵׁבָר   תֵשַׁ   שָׂדָבֵּר   תַּתֵב   בַּתָּר   דֵרַב

   רַשׁ   תַּבֵרַ   תָר   רָתּ   בֵּשָׂד

Vocabulary:

Daughter

בַּת

Sabbath

שַׁבָּת

Lesson 4: Shin and Sin

The next letters on the list are

Shin

שׁ

and her twin sister

Sin

 שׂ

The Shin makes the sound ‘SH’ as in Shell.

The Sin makes the sound ‘S’ as in Silly.

Just like the letters Bet and Vet the Shin and Sin are two letters in one.  The dagesh, that sits on either side of the letter makes the sound difference.

One easy trick to remember which letter is which is to always remember that ‘Sin never sits on the right hand of God.’

We wont be introducing any new vowels in this lesson, we’re just going to play with the ones we have already learned.

Exercises: read the following letter and vowel combinations. Make sure to read aloud so you can work on your pronunciation.

שֵׂ   שָׁ   שַׂ   בֵ   בָּ   רֵ   רָ   דָ   דַ

שָׁשׁ   שֵׁשׁ   שֵׂשֵׂ   שַׁשָׁ   שָׂשֵׁ   שֵׁשַׂ

שַׁב   שֵׁבּ   שָׂד   שַׂר   בַשֵׂ   שֵׁדַרֵבַּ

In this lesson we are going to add a few vocabulary words.  These words are from the Old Testament but many are still used in modern hebrew today.

Flesh

בָּשָׂר

Hailstones

בָּרָד

Abundant

רָב

Word

דָבָר

Six

שֵׁשׁ

Lesson 3: the Dalet and the Resh

Now we’ll look at two other letters

the Dalet:

ד and the Resh:  ר                                      

Lets take a moment to review the sounds of these letters.

The Dalet 

דmakes the sound ‘D’ as in Dog.

The Resh

ר makes the sound ‘R’ as in Run.

Now lets add two new vowels

 Qamets  ָ                 and the Petach ַ

The Qamets makes the short a sound as in Father.

The Petach makes the same short a sound: Father.

Okay so lets add the letters and vowels together to see how they sound.

  דַ

 would sound like Dah.

דָ

 would sound like Dah.

רָ

 would sound like Rah.

It’s really simple just keep practicing.

Exercises: read the following aloud then practice writing your own letter vowel combinations.

רָ   דַ   בָ   בֵ   דֵ   רֵ   בַ   בָּ   בֵּ   רֵ

בֵבּ   בֵּר   בַּבּ   בָּבּ   דֵר   בֵר   רָד   בַד

בֵּרָ   בַדֵ   רָדָבּ   דָבֵּר   רָבֵב  בָּדֵר   דָרַבֵבֵּ

Shalom everyone!

Shalom and God bless.

A little bit about myself: I’m a Messianic beliver who has been studying and teaching Hebrew for three years now.  I decided to to write a blog that would allow anyone to have access to free Hebrew lessons.  I know learning a new language can be difficult expesceliy if your like me and you try to teach yourself.  I hope that someone will be able to learn from my many, many past mistakes.  Each lesson will feature a Biblical and a modern hebrew vocabulary list, whether you want to memorize words from the Tanach or you want to be able to ask for directions in israel you’ll be able to move toward your goal.
