Give the alphabet course on Memrise a try. Here’s how:

  1. Click here to download Memrise from the Google Play store. Click here to download Memrise for an iPhone. Click here to visit Memrise on your computer.
  2. Start an account and log in to Memrise.
  3. Now click here to begin the alphabet course in the app or on your computer.

Once you’ve begun the lessons on Memrise, here are some things you should know:

  1. You will first be introduced to the letter name and see the letter (which you have already done on HearHebrew.com.
  2. Then you will be quizzed on the letter by hearing one of multiple letter names and then being required to pick the letter that you hear.
  3. You will only learn a few letters at a time.
  4. Take a break in between learning sessions for 5 to 15 minutes to do some mindless task that you can complete while letting your new Hebrew knowledge bounce around in your mind. You could also take a nap or simply rest your eyes for a few minutes for this step.
  5. Come back and begin the next session.
  6. Repeat as many times in a day or week as you have time for until the letters seem familiar to you and until you are consistently completing the review with minimal mistakes.

Note: You will be prompted by the Memrise app/website to pay for additional features. Paying for these features is not required in order to continue. If you can’t get past a screen asking you to subscribe to a membership, simply click to get out of the course and restart the course when you’re ready to move on.
