The Nerd has known many students who studied Hebrew in other programs and did not learn the names of the vowels. When the Nerd explains to his students why the names of the vowels are a convenient and useful thing to learn, they rarely complain. As with the consonants, the Nerd recommends using flashcards to memorize these markings, their names, and the sounds they make. An audio file at the end will help you pronounce them correctly.
