How are you? (m.s.)
How are you? (f.s.)
Fine; O.K; all right
(literally, “in order”)
Hello; good-bye; peace
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.
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.
Again we will not be adding any new vowels at this point.
Exercises: read the folowing aloud. (Remember to practice writing your letters)
The next letters on the list are
and her twin sister
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.
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.
ד and the Resh: ר
דmakes the sound ‘D’ as in Dog.
ר makes the sound ‘R’ as in Run.
would sound like Dah.
would sound like Dah.
would sound like Rah.
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.
