Heblish – Hebrew lessons: Day 30


Free Hebrew lessons – July 2010 – Training – Day 30:


I hope that our American and Canadian friends enjoyed their Independence Days. Next Wednesday it will be our French students’ turn.  Hooray, here comes Bastille Day. Now I need to figure out what I’m gonna buy my wife, because Bastille Day, July 14th, is also my anniversary…  😉

Today we’ll continue to enrich our vocabulary. 

In our previous lesson we learned the words for: flower (pera^), plastic bag (sakit), stem (givol), vase (agartal) and bouquet (zer).

Today’s menu: Vocabulary

Attention: The underlined letters represent the accent.


For flight you should say “tisa” in Hebrew.
   – My flight number is 714 – mispar ha’tisa sheli 714. (number – mispar, my – sheli)
   – (Talking to a woman) What is your flight number? – ma mispar ha’tisa shela^?
     (“Your,” when talking to a women is shela^, when talking to a man, it is shel^a.
      We learned “mine, your, his” and “her” in Lesson 21).
   – My flight number is the same – mispar ha’tisa sheli hu oto davar. (“my” or “mine” is sheli, “the same” – oto davar).



For airplane or plane you should say “matos” in Hebrew.
   – This is our planeze ha’matos shelanu. (our – shelanu)
   – Our plane is very big – ha’matos shelanu gadol meod. (big – gadol, very – meod)


Luggage and suitcase

For suitcase you should say “mizvada” in Hebrew, but for “suitcases” or for “luggage” you should say “mizvadot,” which is the plural of mizvada.  
   – Hey, where is my red suitcase? – hey, eifo ha’mizvada ha’aduma sheli? (red – adom (m), aduma (f))
   – Oh, sorry, I took your suitcaseoh, sli^a, laka^ti et ha’mizvada shela^.
   – Thanks very much – toda raba.
   – (talking to a taxi driver) Hi, here is my luggage – shalom (or hi), hine ha’mizvadot sheli.
