This is an online quiz called Basic Hebrew Sounds (written) – A
There is a printable worksheet available for download here so you can take the quiz with pen and paper.
Hebrew is largely a phonetic language, as long as you use Niqqud (those little points and lines).
This means that each of the 22 letters has several basic forms, and each of these usually has only one common reading (there are a few exceptions).
So, if you want to start reading, the first thing to do is to learn these basic forms, which represent the basic sounds of the language.
There are five major vowels, just like in Spanish: A, E, I, O, U. Each of the 22 letters, as a consonant, has a typical basic sound. The Niqqud marks tell you which vowel you should add to the given letter's basic sound (ג G + ָ A = גָ GA).
Please note that not all Niqqud marks are included, but these are the most common ones, for each vowel.
Also note that written (cursive) Hebrew is, at times, rather different than the printed form. To address this problem, there will be two separate games for each basic vowel (A, E, I, O, U).
