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.  YT has successfully trained students of all ages and abilities, in school and privately, for over 25 years.

YT Memory Clues pair each Hebrew letter and vowel with an English visual and auditory 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 all program materials.
