Welcome to the exciting world of improving your Hebrew on the Internet! For your educational pleasure, we have set up several types of interactive exercises. In order to get the maximum benefit from these exercises, you must have on your computer the following:
1. Download Hebrew fonts now (at no cost) from http://www.snunit.k12.il/heb_new.html#fonts. This site is a service of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the site is secure, so you are not jeopardizing your system in any way by downloading the fonts from this site. Fonts are available for all different kinds of systems (e.g., Macintosh, PC, etc.), so when you get to this website read carefully so that you follow the instructions that are appropriate for your computer system. Downloading the fonts can sometimes take several minutes, so please be patient! When you have finished downloading the fonts, follow the instructions provided with the fonts for installing them onto your system. Once you have the fonts installed on your system, you do not need to go through this procedure again.
2. To use these fonts with your Web browser, you will have to select one of the Hebrew fonts as the default font under the Fonts preferences or options setting on your browser. Some character fonts work better than others for certain sites; if you are having trouble reading the text for certain sites, try changing to a different Hebrew font.
