Heblish – Hebrew lessons: Day 63


Free Hebrew lessons – April 2011 – Training – Day 63


In our previous lesson we talked about “you” and “with you,” but only how to speak to a man. In lesson 61 we learned some new words in the future tense, but only how to speak to a woman.

Therefore, today we will learn both genders.
You can also take it as a good refresher for the last two lessons.     

Today’s menu: Completion of lessons 61 & 62.

Attention: The underlined letters represent the accent.

Words & sentences Speaking to a woman Speaking to a man
Close your eyes Tisgeri et ha’einaim shela^ Tisgor et ha’einaim shel^a
Close Tisgeri   Tisgor
Your Shela^ Shel^a
Eyes Einaim Einaim (the same)
And I’ll kiss you Va’ani anashek ota^ Va’ani anashek ot^a

Tomorrow Ma^ar Ma^ar (the same)
I will miss Etgaagea Etgaagea (the same)
You * Elai^ Ele^a

* Here you can see that we have the word “you” twice, but in Hebrew it is not the same word. Don’t try to understand the rules for when to use Ota^ for “you” and when to use Elai^ (speaking to a woman). You will learn it from our examples during our Heblish lessons.


In Hebrew, “you” is expressed using at least four different word. Today we will learn three of them:

Next week we will have an easy lesson. Don’t miss it!
