Remember ? Well, sounds just like it!
And let's be honest here. To most English speakers, also sounds a lot like you're trying to spit. That's the truth of it. So rather than fight that first impression, let's run with it! Let's imagine a big pink Chaf-monster saying "chaf!" and spitting out the dot...
Now let's try some reading practice again.
(Kachah) - Means like this.
(bocheh) - Cry, weep.
(kauv) - painful - note that the dot makes it a kaf and not a chaf!
(kavod) - Honour
But we haven't seen the end of chaf yet...
