Lesson Transcript

Hi everyone.
Welcome to The Ultimate Hebrew Pronunciation Guide.
You've made it to the last lesson! Do you feel more confident about speaking in Hebrew now?
In this last lesson, we'll wrap things up by quizzing you on the material that we've covered in this series.
Let's practice!
Make sure to practice out loud with this lesson!
You know all the parts and pieces, but can you speak Hebrew with a natural accent?
If you've been quiet up until now, be sure to speak out loud with (host name)!
Are you ready? Let's go!
You probably knew this phrase before you started this series, but did you know how to pronounce it correctly?
Give it a shot!
בוקר טוב "good morning"
Did you pronounce this sound correctly?
Many learners often struggle with this simple phrase because there's growling R-like sound that is unusual for many speakers. Try pronouncing it again.
בוקר טוב "good morning"
If you still haven't got it, go back to lesson 6 to review the material.
What about this next one?
פרח נוי "ornamental flower"
Did you pronounce the diphthong correctly?
It's identical to the diphthong in the English word 'boy'. We covered this sound in lesson 7.
Listen to it again.
פרח נוי "ornamental flower"
Okay. Let's move on.
Where is the stress in this example?
דבר "thing"
In this example, the final syllable is stressed. Stress will predominantly fall on the last two syllables of a word, with the final syllable being much more likely, so if you had to guess, it's quite likely that the stress is on the final syllable.
דבר "thing"
Here's the last one.
Diacritics aren't normally marked in most Hebrew texts, but could you read the following?
The dot in the center indicates that this letter is pronounced as a B sound like 'buy'.
Okay, last one.
This has a horizontal line segment underneath the letter which indicates that the letter is meant to be pronounced as an A, like in the word 'far'.
How did it go? Do you feel like you have a better accent than you did at the beginning of this series?
What parts of Hebrew Pronunciation are still difficult for you?
Good luck as you continue learning Hebrew! Bye!
