Ladino: Alphabet (Alef-Bet)

Shalom a tudos! (Hello everyone!)
I made you guys wait for a bit, eh... it's what I do but finally, here you go... the Alphabet (Alef-Bet) in Ladino! Although most Ladino-Speakers don't use the Hebraic alphabet anymore, it's very important to study it before you dive into Ladino! It gives you a good idea about the orthography and pronounciation of the language! Please keep in mind, the Ladino alphabet has more letters than the Hebrew alphabet.
