Hebrew for English Speakers

Yofee Tofee, a Modern Hebrew expression meaning "great" or "terrific," describes our fun, engaging program.  As teachers, we observe students' confusion in pronouncing, reading and remembering the Alef-Bet.  We developed YT to address these issues.  The program is a bridge connecting everyday English to the Hebrew alphabet.  YT has successfully trained students of all ages and abilities, in school and privately, for over 20 years.

Yofee Tofee Flashcards make it easy to build and read Hebrew words!

The Yofee Tofee Hebrew reading program is designed for English speakers.

  • For learners not routinely exposed to Hebrew.

  • Meets the challenge of learning a language that doesn't look like English and is read in the opposite direction.

  • Helps students connect to their heritage, participate in services and prepare for Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

YT Memory Clues pair each Hebrew letter and vowel with an English auditory and visual prompt.

  • Unlike other mnemonic-based programs, Yofee Tofee's visual prompts are familiar objects that closely resemble the Hebrew character's entire shape. The auditory clue highlights its sound.

  • YT  Memory Clues are featured in student flash cards, teacher cards and student workbooks. 

  • Cards are part of each lesson - for word building, reading practice and game playing.

  • Dare to Compare challenges support letter/vowel recognition and retention.

  • Fun game and activities for reinforcement and review.
