Happy New Year may it bring you all your heart's desires.
Thanks for the link.
PS. I went to the link and was surprised to read several opinions were one doesn't have to memorize all those thousands of characters/letters (which is a relief to me).
For my uncles, aunts when teaching them English I used a method that was easier for them. They were too old to learn writing and their education level was primary level school. What I did was write in Spanish the way the words in the alphabet sounds and make them memorized them. After they memorized the alphabet I showed them the picture and told them to write in spanish what it was. They at least can communicate now in English, and I get a break from going everywhere with them to translate for them.
This is an example
in spanish you write like this yói (joy)
I use the same method for Hebrew, Korean and Japanese
In Korean: I do this: Gracias (Thank you) Gúmawo (pronounce as this) gomawo (correct writing)
In Japanese: I do this Gracias (Thank you) Árígato (pronounce as this) Arigatō (correct writing)
In Hebrew I only learned 2 prayers bc it was what I wanted to learn, how to pray in hebrew. So far I Know Our Father in Hebrew (is too long to write here) and a blessing. ''BARUCH ATAH HASHEM ELOKEINU MELECH HA OLAM. BLESSED ARE YOU LORD OUR G-D KING OF THE UNIVERSE.
If anyone here has other shortcuts, can you share them here too?
