    The alef-bet access area includes basic files for reinforcing a student's recognition of the shapes and sounds of the Hebrew letters and vowels.  If you are learning the alef-bet, we recommend that you copy the files that interest you into your newSLATE account, and then create several smaller files that focus on just those letters and vowels that you are mastering at any one time. 

    Among the available files, you will find a file of Hebrew names with easily recognizable English equivalents, a file of English words that have been borrowed from Hebrew, and a file of Hebrew words that have been borrowed from English.  Take quizzes with these files to help you transition from just knowing the letters to recognizing entire words.

    To use these files, log into newSLATE by clicking on the "click to enter" graphic at the top left of any regular newSLATE web page. Then,

    To take a quiz,

    1. Click on [take a quiz].
    2. From the "take a quiz" screen, open the shortcuts folder and then the alef-bet sub-folder.
    3. Select the quiz type and file you want to practice, and click [ok].

    To copy and modify the files,

    1. Click on [work on files].
    2. From the "work on files" screen, open the shortcuts folder and then the alef-bet sub-folder.
    3. Select the alef-bet file you want to copy, and click on [copy/move file].
    4. Type in a new name for the file if you wish, and click [ok].
    5. You will now see the file you copied in your my files list.
