Syllabus: Download and read through it carefully (either click the link above, or get it in Blackboard).

 Listen on http://www.animatedhebrew.com:  Lecture on Lesson 1; click here to view the lecture in youtube.

 Reading: 

Textbook: IBH (Ross’s textbook, Introducing Biblical Hebrew): Lesson 1

Course handouts:  [1] Alphabet and Transliteration; [2] Alphabet and Transliteration Practice Sheet (use for memorizing)

Memorization: [1] Hebrew Alphabet (pronunciation of letters; names of letters; order; how to write letters; see my Handout called “Alphabet and Transliteration”). [2] Here is a link to the Hebrew Alphabet Song that I like to teach my beginning Hebrew students (to the tune of “Do-Re-Mi” from The Sound of Music movie). Please listen to this and sing along with it as you study the Hebrew letters in order. Click here.

Written Assignments: [1]  Practice writing the Hebrew alphabet with English transliteration in order.  I suggest doing this at least 5 times or more, until you have mastered it. To do this, use my handout “Alphabet and Transliteration Practice Sheet.”  [2]  Complete IBH 1.8 exercises, sections A (1-12) and B (1-3).

Note:  for your assistance, I have uploaded audio files in WAV format where I read the vocab words, some of the exercises, and some of the grammatical information in each of the chapters of Ross.  Listening to these can greatly help you with your homework. Look above and click on the link called “Ross (IBH) Audio Files.” Note well: I used to pronounce the 6th letter of the alphabet as “wow”; I now pronounce it as “vav.” Please be aware of this, since the recordings reflect my older pronunciation.
