How is anyone else doing the part that says "write in hebrew?" I don't have a hebrew keyboard...

August 31, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/airelibre

If you're on PC, look in the keyboard settings and add Hebrew. Then you have to either learn to touch type, or buy some keyboard stickers online (very cheap).

Or use the app. Just look in the language settings of your phone or tablet and add Hebrew. That can be a good way of learning the keyboard layout if you're totally unfamiliar with it.

I don't know the letters. I can't even learn how each one is meant to be pronounced and the voice only speaks a couple words aloud. I can't write a word or even begin to figure out how it's spell if I'm not given an alphabet and how it's pronounced. Can I write phonetically with roman letters?

November 24, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Zayin17

Get real good with learning the Hebrew letters and their pronounciations first. That's what I did and it helped me a lot. If you don't know the Hebrew letters then it's like trying to learn how to read English without knowing your ABCs

There is a table of the Hebrew alphabet and an explanation in the overview of the Letters 1 skill.

January 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/airelibre

Here you can find the official Memrise course for the alphabet. However, it is recommended that you simply dive in with the Duolingo lessons, because very many of the letters have more than one pronunciation.

If you're on a mac then you can go to settings, keyboard, input sources and then add hebrew as a language. you can access it by hitting the little american flag that appears in your menu bar but you might have to google the hebrew keyboard to know which keys to press.

September 10, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/DonatoCali

"בא" This one is "ba" and is used when the subject of the sentence is of male gender (grammatical or natural). The other one is for feminine subject.

September 20, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/Rochelle43

The first is Ba-a is feminine and second Ba is masculine

why wouldnt you add םאה here?

January 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/airelibre

For one that word cannot exist because ם is the final form of מ (m). For example the word מים mayim - water.

Secondly, it is ba'a not ma'a.

January 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/TsaddiqBan

I thought "is" was written as האם? Can you only use that at the beginning of a phrase or something?

There is a link: https://www.memrise.com given in some of the notes on Duolingo on the web-page, I think if you scroll down at the beginning. If you use my URL above you will have to cut paste since I did not make it an actual hyperlink, but I am making progress there.
I can't begin these lessons without 1st going through Garden-Memrise. I hope this proves to be the help a lot of you seem to be looking for. It is a good site and all the beginning stuff is free.

April 12, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/airelibre

I'm afraid Hebrew is not English written in Hebrew letters. It's a totally different language. So "mom" is pronounced like this and is written like this: אמא (alef, mem, aleph, are the names of the letters).

I've heard that there are browser extensions. Try a web search for keyboard extensions compatible with your particular browser, or if not, perhaps you could download the chrome browser which I've heard definitely have it. I have a PC that I own & administer myself so I just download the language packs from MS. If you're really computer literate, you might be able to write a program for it or find one that someone already wrote. With enough willingness anything is possible. Vel anyvay, Good luck!

Other courses that make use of alternative character sets allow for the romanised versions of the words.

Since I CANNOT change my computers character sets (this is a thing in some places, acting like it isn't is technologically stupid)... being able to make use of the romanised versions would be more helpful here.

May 31, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/airelibre

Please explain how it is impossible to "change your computers character sets" rather than calling people stupid. I've never heard of such a thing, unless perhaps you live in North Korea.

June 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/KatrinaTheLamia

>Please explain how it is impossible to "change your computers >character sets"

I did explain it.

I CANNOT change my computer's character sets. That is the ENTIRE explanation. It is not something that can be done.

There is nothing else to say. There is nothing that can be done to change the computer's character sets.

> rather than calling people stupid

Dood... I've been reading the comments, and EVERY solution is pretty much a terrible one that does not take into account the issue.

You had one person suggest "learning touch typing for Hebrew" as a "helpful suggestion". Which is on par with telling somebody that "to help not have to deal with the pain of a charlie horse, it helps to have some large biker punch you in the face."

Seriously? "Learning touch typing" is a solution given? Is that person smoking crack and not sharing?

> I've never heard of such a thing, unless perhaps you live in North >Korea.

Okay, then you are just a ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ stupid kid, who has no knowledge of computers, the history of computing, and thinks every computer set up is exactly like your home desktop.

Meanwhile I'm actually grateful I'm not on a computer running EBCDIC.

Hell, this computer, I'm fairly certain, might even understand a couple of the UNICODE standards. Which is awesome--I'm still really use to running systems that have ASCII-7 (possibly even an ISO version of that).

I'm kind of in awe of the future we live in where we don't necessarily have to limit computer based graphic to "web safe colours". Hell, the notion of asking, "what kind of monitor is attached" also is no longer a thing.

I remember setting up software to have to be told if it is working on a Tandy, Hercules, CGA, EGA, VGA or this new special thing called SVGA (which was kind of an ass pull for a name. Just kind of riding on that whole VGA monitor thing. You didn't see VGA calling itself SCGA or anything).

When you say things like, "what you are describing is not possible, because I've personally never observed it"--MAKES THIS MATTER ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ FRUSTRATING AS ❤❤❤❤. As you are talking to somebody whose only reason for not jumping onto various BBS was because they couldn't actually afford the bills that war dialing (or even just using phone lines for data).

I've heard of such things. I've heard of compatibility issues that you'd not even believe were possible.

Luckily, I'm not using any of those systems to jump onto the internet and use this website.

However, the systems I am on do not have that as an option. It is not an option--it is not there. There is no "change character set" ability on these systems. This is from somebody who has thoroughly checked these systems for fun things she can do on them.

>rather than calling people stupid. I've never heard of such a thing, >unless perhaps you live in North Korea.

See... the reason I'm calling people stupid... is you are telling me something doesn't exist. Something that IS IN MY ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ WAY DOES NOT ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ EXIST.

What the ❤❤❤❤ else am I suppose to say to you? What words should I use, when I have an obstacle in my path... and that my issues with the solutions given "do not exist", to describe the person who is saying them?

My computer does not have that option to change language settings. I do not have administrative rights on these systems to install new software packages.

And now I've gone and ranted... as people are being really rude and unhelpful... and then acting like anything they are told for why there help don't work is ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ fiction.

Maybe if I'm not going to be told my issues are fictional, in the various comments, I'm not going to call people ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ stupid.

You guys started the name calling.

>Please explain how it is impossible to "change your computers > character sets" [...] > I've never heard of such a thing, unless perhaps you live in > North Korea.

... how computer illiterate does somebody have to be, to have not heard of such things?

My gog... I'm glad I'm not having to go into x.conf settings to get xlib to put things to my frame buffer in a way that doesn't release the magic smoke.

It is even worse that anytime I jump onto a computer and it doesn't instantly work, I'm accused of being a ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ liar by saying, "it isn't doing what it should be"--which makes talking about it ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ frustrating as all ❤❤❤❤. "I need help" immediately being responded with "you are a ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ liar"--leads to me bracing on the help thing.
