| Do you have them distinguish all the begadkefat letters as well?  
| e.g. non-dagesh Tau as "th," non-dagesh daleth as voiced "th" and 
| so forth?  In college I had one prof who did and one who didn't; the 
| one who didn't only distinguished beth, kaf and pe and kept the 
| others "hard" all the time.  I've picked up that approach myself, but I 
| sometimes wonder if I should have.

I'm the same, Dave. No I don't distinguish them, though I often wonder whether I should.

Best regards,
