Meanwhile in Israel -- the dove likes wine and the mom likes bread?
mom can be spelled אמא or אימה
that's why I got this wrong...
How exactly am I supposed to know if there's a ה at the beginning of the word when it's not pronounced?
In the discussion, the thing I find most helpful is the pronunciation of the words written out in English, by seeing it and hearing the audio I understand the pronunciation of the words better. That helps me pick up how to speak the words.
