Reading 3-Letter Hebrew Words

In the previous lessons, we have seen how to pronounce a Hebrew word by spelling out the word letter by letter and vowel by vowel, starting from the right and working your way towards the left. To get some reading practice and learn some common vocabulary, we looked at simple (short) Hebrew words with two letters, from the Hebrew Bible.

In this lesson, we go further and look at (very) common Hebrew words with three letters. There are lots and lots of these! If you have gone through the previous lessons, this lesson takes you a step further.

This group of lessons accomplishes two things:

  • It gives you practice reading Hebrew, building up your confidence and experience as you go.
  • It exposes you to dozens of very common Hebrew words. Learn these! You will come across these words again and again from now on!

It is best to go through this lesson several times, so that you get as much practice and exposure to these Hebrew words as possible.
