Hebrew Phonetics Chart Free

A great variety of Hebrew learning texts are available today, however they all differ in how they transliterate the pronunciation of the Hebrew letters and words. We use the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) in all our Hebrew lessons. This allows for the Hebrew pronunciation to be standardized and people of different cultures, languages and backgrounds to pronounce the letters with confidence.
