Product Announcement – Davka Corporation of Chicago, Illinois has released Alef Bet Schoolhouse for the Macintosh, an app that introduces Hebrew letter basics to children ages 3 and up. Alef Bet Schoolhouse for Mac is based on the best-selling iOS version, and features four engaging and enjoyable activities that teach pronunciation of Hebrew letters, recognition of letter shapes, the order of the Hebrew alphabet, and the differences between letters of similar appearance.
The ‘Meet the Alef Bet’ section displays each Hebrew letter with a picture of a word that begins with that letter, accompanied with delightful animation and audio pronunciation of the letter and word. The ‘Magical Alef Bet Game’ presents a sequence of Hebrew letters that need to be placed in their proper order. The ‘Unscrambulator’ requires players to reassemble scrambled Hebrew letters into their correct shapes, while ‘Name that Letter’ places different letters of similar appearance on the screen that must be identified and distinguished from one another.
Alef Bet Schoolhouse, with its vibrant graphics, fun audio and entertaining activities, is an ideal Hebrew learning tool for pre-schoolers.
