They are teaching the alphabet just a few letters at a time while we learn a few vocabulary words. If you want to just learn all the alphabet at once without learning a few words then you can find a lot of resources outside Duolingo. Personally I like the way this course is doing it.
They just started teaching it! Finally!!! (2021/10/06) There is now an Aleph tile next to the house tile on the bottom (in the app), and if you click it, that section teaches the alphabet So Thoroughly. After years of despairing over this course -- this might actually help.
I think that Duolingo wants to help you understand Hebrew as it’s actually spoken. But in the end, the reason doesn’t make much difference because you get what you get with this Duolingo site. They have heard hundreds of times “Please slow down!” and they don’t so they probably won’t. Well, sometimes in later lessons they do, but by then it’s not so necessary.
If you want to hear the words individually pronounced, I highly recommend Duolingo Memrise! It’s fun and effective. I’ve been doing it for a couple of months and I love it.
opticalrio, be persistent!
To help me remember words, I find that it helps to use a notebook and write out all the sentences in Latin letters and review them at least once after I’m done with the lesson. There are those who might tell me that it’s better to get my brain accustomed to the Hebrew letters, but while Hebrew is still new to me, I find it’s best to use the Latin letters for now.
Keep at it and you’ll find a way that’s best for you! :)
During the choosing words portion to form a sentence, the words arent spoken when you pick them. In the japanese course they are. If i pick the kanji character for the words "please" "pass" "water" it says each word in japanese audibly.. it doesnt when you pick the hebrew word.. is that a glitch or is it just taught differently?
