The very beginner at Hebrew most always starts by learning the Hebrew alphabet (or Alef-Bet). Notice how even the English word 'alphabet' comes from Greek in Hebrew (in Greek, the first letter is alpha and second letter is Beta, but in Hebrew, the first letter is 'ALEF' and the second letter is 'BET'.
Students must learn to see a word, and sound it out phonetically. Hebrew is totally phonetic when reading, because each letter (when the dots are present) can only be pronounced one specific way. (Yes, different people groups may pronounce it differently, but we teach the Sephardic style Hebrew as used in modern Israel.) Writing Hebrew can be trickier, because there are two letters that could make the 'S' sound, and two letters the make the 'K' sound.

The songs are 'catchy', and as you sing them over and over, they stick in your mind, and help you to improve your vocabulary.
