... which renders it HaLechem HaZeh, right? Meaning, I use the article after the noun, lit. "the bread this"?
Usually not. There is the word "ההוא" but we use it less than English use "that".
Is this the same way you would say "that is bread" or "is it bread?"
Is this word equivalent to Russian «это»?
Don't know the Russian, but can be used both for "that is bread" and "is it bread?" (if you inflect your voice to make it a question)
Yes, and that letter, called a zayin, is very easy to get mixed up with a vav (ו), so be careful!
guys, someone knows a way to read the hebrew pronunciation in english alphabet?, just like the russian course?

zeh (זה) is used with masculine nouns: bread (לחם), a boy (ילד), a man (גבר). zot (זאת) is used with feminine nouns: a woman (אישה), a girl (ילדה), a cake (עוגה). That is the point. In Hebrew all adjectives have both a masculine and a feminine form, "THIS" (זה, זאת) is not an exception.
Great explanation and I am somewhat familiar. However, isn't there a way or a shortcut rather to know when a word or every noun is masculine or feminine? Will I, as a native English speaker, come to learn the latter by the mere ending of the word or last letter in the noun somewhat resembling (at least conceptually) masc. & feminine verbs? Furthermore, hypothetically, what if one endeavors to learn new vocab words daily. How will they come to know if this new word is masc. או feminine?
