The Hebrew Alphabet for English Speaking Kids
Hebrew is different from English, not only in sound but also in the way it is written. Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, the first of which are alef and bet. Five of the 22 letters are written a bit differently when they appear at the end of a word and some Hebrew letters have more than one sound. For example, the sound of “P” and the sound of “F” are represented by the same letter, pronounced “Pey” or “Fey” depending on its word. Hebrew vowels are represented by symbols, which generally are not written in texts though they are used in prayer books and children’s and beginner learning books. Finally, the most observable distinction of Hebrew is that it is written and read from right to left.
