Hebrew vs English spelling

[Possibly not right subreddit]

To everyone who knows Hebrew here – once you have learned it, is reading Hebrew (ktiv male, without niqqud) as easy as reading English?

Hebrew does not write all vowels but English appears to be no better in written form… it writes more letters than are actually pronounced and writes them in an irregular way so there is, for example, no way of knowing how “through” is pronounced without learning the whole word or that “knight” and “night” are pronounced the same way. How does Hebrew compare?
