Hebrew Letter Chet

Hebrew Letter Chet: H in the name fool you - doesn't make the "ch" sound you're used to in words like choo-choo, children, or chocolate, nor even in chrysamthemum or chivalry. In fact we just use CH because there IS no such sound in English! It's a slightly stronger H that sounds to many English speakers like you're getting ready to spit.

Israeli Movies
A number of Israeli movies have received international recognition. See if you can pick up some new words watching films in Hebrew, such as Summer of Aviya, Under the Domim Tree, and the controversial Kodesh!

Luckily there is such a sound in some other languages.
