It is a lot more easier to learn a language that shares the same alphabet than yours, I've tried to learn the basics in Hebrew by myself and every time I tried I failed. So, I'm going to take advantage of the fact that there are a lot of active members in the forum who know more than one alphabet, how did you start to learn a language that has a complete different alphabet than yours? I found it discouraging, Hebrew has 22 letters (all of them are consonants ) and vowels appear under the consonants as dots. From my point of view, once you learn all the consonants when you combine 2 letters (consonantes) they don't sound like how you would think they would sound.
Do you guys have tips? It feels like it would need exclusive dedication and a lot of practice to at least reach a basic level of understanding.
