Hello world!

Shalom.  Welcome to Free Hebrew Lessons by Dolpheena!  Who wants to pay for lessons when you can visit me and get’em free!  Let’s get started.  There’s no time to waste.  You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t anxious to learn.

NEW! I have added an  Alefbet Alphabet page and an English transliteration lessons Page with sub pages containing additional lessons! I am actively adding more to aid learners in a comprehensive way. My pronunciation lesson below can also be found on the Alefbet Alphabet page. Please leave any comments or questions you have! I hope you find my site for learning helpful

VOWELS:

A =ah  as in pod/sod

E=ehh  as in hen/pen

I=ee  as in tea/flee

There are long & short vowel sounds but the difference in pronunciation is so close we can use this guide and learn just fine.
