Why leave off the vowels in beginning Hebrew?

Why on earth would you leave off the vowels in beginning Hebrew? The vowels are not commonly removed until a reader becomes advanced.

Trust me,it's better to learn Hebrew without vowels! It can be hard at the beginning but it forces you to learn the words without vowels. Good luck!

I guess I should have been clearer. I am writing to the developers. I have experience in biblical Hebrew.

Hi Lisa, see my response here.

Hebrew has always been written without the niqqud. The niqqud are used for special cases like Jews learning Hebrew and foreigners visiting Israel. Once you know how to pronounce a word in Hebrew, vowels aren't necessary, in fact, it's a bit of a hassle to type with niqqud. Hopefully you found this to be helpful

Yes. Learn without the vowels. It is a challenge but will pay dividends later!!
