Hebrew Vav & Bet

Hello,

Sorry If this has been asked but I have been looking over the Hebrew tag and I haven't found it so...


How does the transcription of Vav and Bet into English work?

I'm a native Spanish speaker and I learned Hebrew without ever being told that Vav and Bet were pronounced differently from Spanish B. Once I learned English I realised that B = Bet, V = Vav (the wikipedia agrees on this), more or less, as I suppose that they might not be exactly the same. Shana Tovah, though, gets transcribed as "To<em>v</em>a", not "toba" and it's apparently pronounced /tova/ as well (again, wikipedia is my source).

Thanks in advance :)

 EDIT: Thanks, I got as much as I'm gonna get with a basic knowledge of Hebrew :D
