AlyzaCCC: I mean, the letters, the vowels, and the vocab
Ruth: ok
greg3: Can you please paste the site here? I don't have it bookmarked at home
AlyzaCCC: the logs get placed on there after the class (obviously), but it takes some html editing on my part
AlyzaCCC: Shalom welcome to #IsraeliCafe Hebrew 101! For more information in the class, if this is your first time here, go to l I suggest setting your font size to 16 or 18 for easy reading. Make sure your mIRC is set to a Hebrew web font.
