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...
