I am a senior citizen, not a child. This may be a good way to start. I have been using books, computer, and people to learn, not so easy. I have always been good, fast learner in languages. Latin languages are easy, this is far more difficult for me. I love little Mosche and Leah. Thank you. Oh, how many lessons are there, just the 3? Toda raba.

Hi It is important to put the script next to the phonetic English word and Hebrew word. I made this mistake when first learning Ivrit and consequently never mastered reading at all! This time I am only writing the phonetic version when absolutely necessary. Jackie
