Heblish – Hebrew lessons: Day 21

Free Heblish Challenge – May 2010 – Training – Day 21:

Shalom ima (hello, Mom)!

Day 21 and today I won’t bother you with a mountain of words. 

In our previous lesson we read the beginning of Conny’s story, corrected her Heblish and also learned many new Hebrew words such as: yom (day), hayom (today), ^adash (new), kniyot (shopping), kesef (money), etc… If you need a refresher, please go back to the end of lesson 20 and look at the table of new words we learned in that lesson.

Today I planned to continue with Conny’s story – but since Sunday is the Mother’s Day holiday, we will take a break and continue with Conny’s story next week.

Today’s menu: Family
