How do you write that? Posted by Sean Young on Dec 27, 2013 in Exercises, Learning Hebrew, Writing
In this post, I’ll be showing you how to do something that I haven’t written about since this blog began – writing Hebrew in the cursive style.
Looking at the alphabet here in handwritten Hebrew, can you see how similar the letters look to their printed counterparts? This is the style you’ll most likely find in school copybooks or language courses.
Let’s take a look at them in groups and practice writing them yourself (you can download a worksheet at the end of this article):
As I mentioned above, these forms are a formal, copybook style. In actual handwriting you will find some variations of how they’re written depending on who is doing the writing. For example, here’s a sample of my own handwriting:
If you want to compare and see if you can discover which letter is being written, you can click on any one of the pictures and it will open in a separate window.
Always keep practicing
From now on, whenever you see words in Hebrew, either in real life, or in this blog, write them down in your notebook to keep yourself in practice. And do a search for Hebrew handriting images online to see how others write.
