Something you didn’t know about Hebrew

I’m making my first visit to Israel at Easter, so I’m learning Hebrew. The first part of that sentence is true; the last part is of course a joke. But I am always learning from my Jewish friends and something I discovered this week is that written Hebrew – as well as being constructed from right to left and as well as differing somewhat from printed Hebrew – does not use vowels. You can learn more about this very distinctive language here.
