This is a free app that is a user friendly Strong's Concordance! I use it to read aloud our current portion in English, and find it handy to click on the highlighted blue words that pique my interest in the portion for deeper learning. VERY handy. Honestly, I feel like the floodgates are opening with a downpour of YHVH's Holy Language these days.
Here is the link for the lite version: Strong's Concordance Lite. It is designed for both iPhone and iPad.
But if you are looking for a fast way to memorize the Aleph Bet (I learned all the letters in about 20 minutes, if that), you HAVE to check out this next cute app...
I don't know why (considering it's NOT an integral part of the app at all) but the cute little owl on this app is all the motivation I need to stay focused. There are two modes for this app (you'll see what I mean when you download it): Study Mode and Test Mode. Review the letters in Study Mode then switch to Test Mode and see how you do! You will get a grade at the end of the test. Don't worry, you can retake the test until you get an A+! Just remember that the font is slightly different from the actual Torah but you'll adjust. Here is the link for this app: Hebrew Alphabet Study Buddy. (Yes, I am aware it is Aleph Bet, but that's how they named it.) And then, as I found out in my synagogue's Hebrew class in clearer terms....we have...(drumroll please)
Our Aleph Bet with Vowel Points! If you click on the Options button you can select which vowel types (ie. Patach Deck or Shva Deck) you want to review with the flash cards. It will verbally say the proper pronunciation of each letter/vowel combination. Practice makes perfect! (I like the Western Wall in the background too. ::smiles::) So here is the link so you can catch the Aleph Beis buzz: Aleph Beis Cards. This one's compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
And homeschooling wouldn't be complete without a few fun Hebrew learning apps for kids! Check this one out...
And for years now I have checked out the Pimsleur Institute's Hebrew DVDs for children (of course...for my babies' enjoyment...ehem...ok ok...well, mine too I confess). Well, Little Pim Panda has an app for improving Hebrew vocabulary! It is a talking coloring book. Each page has a different word then the child colors the picture. What will they come up with next?! Here is the Little Pim Talking Coloring Book link. I hope you love it too!
Well that's all folks! Those are my favorites...please list yours in the Comments section if you have any others for us to post. Enjoy your studies!
