1. Common Phrases You’ll Need for a Date

So, you have met your Hebrew love interest. Congratulations! Who knows where this could take you…?! However, the two of you have just met and you’re not ready to say the Hebrew word for love just yet. Great, it is better to get to know him/her first. Wow your prospective love by using these Hebrew date phrases to set up a spectacular first date.

Hebrew Date Phrases

Would you like to go out to dinner with me?

  • רוצה לצאת איתי לארוחת ערב?
  • rotse latset yti learuchat erev?

The important question! In most cultures, this phrase indicates: ‘I’m romantically interested in you’. Flirting in Hebrew is no different, so don’t take your date to Mcdonald’s!

Are you free this weekend?

  • אתה חופשי בסוף השבוע?
  • ata chofshi besof hashavua?

This is a preamble to asking your love interest on a date. If you get an immediate ‘Yes’, that’s good news!

Would you like to hang out with me?

  • רוצה לבלות יחד?
  • rotse levalot yachad?

You like her/him, but you’re not sure if there’s chemistry. Ask them to hang out first to see if a dinner date is next.

What time shall we meet tomorrow?

  • באיזו שעה אתה רוצה להפגש מחר?
  • be’eizo sha’a ata rotse lehipagesh machar?

Set a time, and be sure to arrive early! Nothing spoils a potential relationship more than a tardy date.

Where shall we meet?

  • איפה אתה רוצה להיפגש?
  • eifo ata rotse lehipagesh?

You can ask this, but also suggest a place.

You look great.

  • אתה נראה נהדר.
  • ata nir’eh neheder

A wonderful ice breaker! This phrase will help them relax a bit - they probably took great care to look their best just for you.

You are so cute.

  • אתה כל כך חמוד.
  • ata kol kakh chamud

If the two of you are getting on really well, this is a fun, flirtatious phrase to use.

What do you think of this place?

  • מה אתה חושב על המקום הזה?
  • ma ata choshev al hamakom haze?

This another good conversation starter. Show off your Hebrew language skills!

Can I see you again?

  • רוצה להפגש שוב?
  • rotse lehipagesh shuv?

So the date went really well - don’t waste time! Make sure you will see each other again.

Shall we go somewhere else?

  • רוצה ללכת למקום אחר?
  • rotse lalekhet lemakom acher?

If the place you meet at is not great, you can suggest going elsewhere. It is also a good question to follow the previous one. Variety is the spice of life!

I know a good place.

  • אני מכירה מקום טוב.
  • ani mekira makom tov

Use this with the previous question. However, don’t say if you don’t know a good place!

I will drive you home.

  • אני אסיע אותך הבייתה.
  • ani asiya otkha habayta

If your date doesn’t have transport, this is a polite, considerate offer. However, don’t be offended if she/he turns you down on the first date. Especially a woman might not feel comfortable letting you drive her home when the two of you are still basically strangers.

That was a great evening.

  • זה היה ערב נהדר.
  • ze haya erev neheder

This is a good phrase to end the evening with.

When can I see you again?

  • מתי אני רואה אותך שוב?
  • matai ani roah otkha shuv?

If he/she replied ‘Yes’ to ‘Can I see you again?’, this is the next important question.

I’ll call you.

  • אני אתקשר אליך.
  • ani etkasher eleykha

Say this only if you really mean to do it. In many cultures, this could imply that you’re keeping the proverbial backdoor open.

Valentine's Day Words in Hebrew

You mean so much to me.

  • ata kol kakh khashuv li.

This is a beautiful expression of gratitude that will enhance any relationship! It makes the receiver feel appreciated and their efforts recognized.

Will you be my Valentine?

  • התהיה בן זוגי בחג האהבה?
  • ha`tihiye ben zugi be`khag ha`ahava?

With these words, you are taking your relationship to the next level! Or, if you have been a couple for a while, it shows that you still feel the romance. So, go for it!

You’re so beautiful.

  • את כל כך יפה.
  • at kol kakh yafa.

If you don’t know how to say ‘You’re pretty’ in Hebrew, this is a good substitute, gentlemen!

I think of you as more than a friend.

  • אני חושב עליך כיותר מידידה.
  • ani khoshev alaikh ke`yoter miydida.

Say this if you are not yet sure that your romantic feelings are reciprocated. It is also a safe go-to if you’re unsure about the Hebrew dating culture.

A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you.

  • מאה לבבות יהיו מעט מדי כדי להכיל את כל האהבה שלי אלייך.
  • mea levavot ihiyu meat midai kdei lehakhil et kol ha`ahava sheli elaikh.

You romantic you…! When your heart overflows with love, this would be the best phrase to use.

Love is just love. It can never be explained.

  • אהבה היא פשוט אהבה. היא אף פעם לא מוסברת.
  • ahava hi pashut ahava. hi af pa-am lo musberet.

If you fell in love unexpectedly or inexplicably, this one’s for you.

You’re so handsome.

  • אתה כל כך יפה.
  • ata kol kakh yafe.

Ladies, this phrase lets your Hebrew love know how much you appreciate his looks! Don’t be shy to use it; men like compliments too.

I’ve got a crush on you.

  • אני דלוק עלייך.
  • ani daluk alaikh.

If you like someone, but you’re unsure about starting a relationship, it would be prudent to say this. It simply means that you like someone very, very much and think they’re amazing.

You make me want to be a better man.

  • את גורמת לי לרצות להיות אדם טוב יותר.
  • at goremet li lirtsot lihiyot adam tov yoter.

Gentlemen, don’t claim this phrase as your own! It hails from the movie ‘As Good as it Gets’, but it is sure to make your Hebrew girlfriend feel very special. Let her know that she inspires you!

Let all that you do be done in love.

  • עשה הכל באהבה.
  • ase hakol be`ahava.

We hope.

You are my sunshine, my love.

  • אתה הקרן אור שלי, האהבה שלי.
  • ata ha`keren or sheli, ha`ahava sheli.

A compliment that lets your lover know they bring a special quality to your life. Really nice!

Words can’t describe my love for you.

  • מילים לא יכולות לתאר את האהבה שלי אלייך.
  • milim lo yekholot letaer et ha`ahava sheli elekha.

Better say this when you’re feeling serious about the relationship! It means that your feelings are very intense.

We were meant to be together.

  • נועדנו להיות יחד.
  • noadnu lihiyot yakhad.

This is a loving affirmation that shows you see a future together, and that you feel a special bond with your partner.

If you were thinking about someone while reading this, you’re definitely in love.

7. 15 Most Common Break-Up Lines

Hebrew Break-Up Lines

Instead of moving towards marriage or a long-term relationship, you find that the spark is not there for you. That is a pity! But even though breaking up is never easy, continuing a bad or unfulfilling relationship would be even harder. Remember to be kind to the person you are going to say goodbye to; respect and sensitivity cost nothing. Here are some phrases to help you break up gently.

  • We need to talk.
    • אנחנו צריכים לדבר.
    • anakhnu tsrikhim le`daber.

    This is not really a break-up line, but it is a good conversation opener with a serious tone.

    It’s not you. It’s me.

    • זה לא אתה. זה אני.
    • ze lo ata. ze ani.

    As long as you mean it, this can be a kind thing to say. It means that there’s nothing wrong with your Hebrew lover as a person, but that you need something different from a relationship.

    I’m just not ready for this kind of relationship.

    • אני פשוט לא מוכן למערכת יחסים מהסוג הזה.
    • ani pashut lo mukhan le`ma-arekhet yakhasim meha`sug haze.

    Things moved a bit fast and got too intense, too soon? Painful as it is, honesty is often the best way to break up with somebody.

    Let’s just be friends.

    • בוא פשוט נהיה חברים.
    • bo pashut nihiye khaverim.

    If the relationship was very intense, and you have sent many ‘i love u’ texts in Hebrew, this would not be a good breakup line. Feelings need to calm down before you can be friends, if ever. If the relationship has not really developed yet, a friendship would be possible.

    I think we need a break.

    • אני חושב שאנחנו צריכים הפסקה.
    • ani khoshev she`anakhnu tsrikhim hafsaka.

    This is again honest, and to the point. No need to play with someone’s emotions by not letting them know how you feel. However, this could imply that you may fall in love with him/her again after a period of time, so use with discretion.

    You deserve better.

    • מגיע לך יותר טוב.
    • megi-ah lekha yoter tov.

    Yes, he/she probably deserves a better relationship if your own feelings have cooled down.

    We should start seeing other people.

    • אנחנו צריכים להתחיל לצאת עם אנשים אחרים.
    • anakhnu tsrikhim lehatkhil latset eem anashim akherim.

    This is probably the least gentle break-up phrase, so reserve it for a lover that doesn’t get the message!

    I need my space.

    • אני צריך את החופש שלי.
    • ani tsarikh et ha`khofesh sheli.

    When a person is too clingy or demanding, this would be an suitable break-up phrase. It is another good go-to for that lover who doesn’t get the message!

    I think we’re moving too fast.

    • אני חושב שאנחנו מתקדמים מהר מדי.
    • ani khoshev she`anakhnu mitkadmim maher midai.

    Say this if you want to keep the relationship, but need to slow down its progress a bit. It is also good if you feel things are getting too intense for your liking. However, it is not really a break-up line, so be careful not to mislead.

    I need to focus on my career.

    • אני צריך להתמקד בקריירה שלי.
    • ani tsarikh le`hitmaked ba`karyera sheli.

    If you feel that you will not be able to give 100% in a relationship due to career demands, this is the phrase to use. It’s also good if you are unwilling to give up your career for a relationship.

    I’m not good enough for you.

    • אני לא מספיק טוב בשבילך.
    • ani lo maspik tov bishvilekh.

    Say this only if you really believe it, or you’ll end up sounding false. Break-ups are usually hard for the receiving party, so don’t insult him/her with an insincere comment.

    I just don’t love you anymore.

    • אני פשוט לא אוהב אותך יותר.
    • ani pashut lo ohev otakh yoter.

    This harsh line is sometimes the best one to use if you are struggling to get through to a stubborn, clingy lover who won’t accept your break up. Use it as a last resort. Then switch your phone off and block their emails!

    We’re just not right for each other.

    • אנחנו פשוט לא מתאימים.
    • anakhnu pashut lo mat-eemim.

    If this is how you truly feel, you need to say it. Be kind, gentle and polite.

    It’s for the best.

    • עדיף כך.
    • adif kakh.

    This phrase is called for if circumstances are difficult and the relationship is not progressing well. Love should enhance one’s life, not burden it!

    We’ve grown apart.

    • התרחקנו אחד מהשניה.
    • hitrakhaknu ekhad meha`shniya.

    Cross-cultural relationships are often long-distance ones, and it is easy to grow apart over time.

    The Top 15 Ways to Say Hello in Hebrew

    Thumbnail

    Lewis Carroll, in the famous book Alice in Wonderland, wrote some of the best advice ever given: “Begin at the beginning.”

    When learning Hebrew, as with any language, there’s no better beginning than learning how to say hello in Hebrew. We say hello to people all the time, every day.

    Whether we want to greet a friend, start a conversation with a stranger to ask for directions, or perhaps introduce ourselves to someone we see from across the bar, knowing the right Hebrew greeting is essential!

    Is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of hello in Hebrew shalom? You’re not alone, as this is the most common and popular way to say hello in Hebrew greetings.

    As in many languages, there are several different ways to say hello in Hebrew. How you say hello in Hebrew depends largely on the situation, setting, and who you’re talking to. Greetings can be formal, informal, general, situation- or time-specific, even imported from English or Arabic!

    That said, how do we boil down the answer to “What’s hello in Hebrew?”

    In the following lesson, we’ll take a look at these different Hebrew greetings so you can learn how to say hello in Hebrew in any situation, at any time, with confidence and comfort. Luckily, this language is generally not very grammar-intensive, so just sit back, relax, and have fun with these! Here we go!

    5. How HebrewPod101.com Can Help!


    1. General Greetings

    Thumbnail

    Let’s begin with some general greetings. These are greetings in Hebrew that you can feel comfortable using in just about any situation. Before we dive in, however, it’s well worth mentioning that modern Hebrew—unlike Biblical Hebrew—doesn’t make very much use of formalities in spoken conversation.

    That being said, it’s best to avoid too much informality with the elderly or people of authority (such as police officers). In other words, the baseline of Hebrew is neither formal nor informal.

    This is exactly the way we could describe the most well-known Hebrew word for hello: שלום (shalom). Most of us know that this word means “peace.” However, it’s also the most classic of Hebrew greetings. It’s neither formal nor informal, and you can use it both to say hello and goodbye in Hebrew, to anyone! Let’s take a look.

    Doves in Flight

    • שלום
      Shalom
      Hello / Goodbye [literally “Peace” when translated]
    • שלום! אני מרגרט.
      Shalom! Ani Margaret.
      Hello! I’m Margaret.
    • שלום! נתראה מחר.
      Shalom! Nitra’eh machar.
      Goodbye! See you tomorrow.

    Note that if we use this word twice in a row, it can be used to add emphasis and warmth to our greeting:שלום, שלום. For example, if you want to say “Hello, friend” in Hebrew or even “Hello and welcome,” in Hebrew, this is a great way to go about it.

    • שלום, שלום, חברים. בואו כנסו.
      Shalom, shalom, chaverim. Bou kansu.
      Well, hello, friends, come on in.

    This next one is taken straight from English, so it should be a piece of cake for you!

    • היי
      Hay
      Hi
    • היי, אני שלי. איך קוראים לך?
      Hay, ani Sheli. Eykh korim lekha?
      Hi, I’m Shelley. What’s your name?

    The last common greeting we’ll look at is taken from Arabic. It’s used as a Hebrew slang for hello, so, while it will impress your Israeli friends, it’s best to avoid using it in formal settings.

    • אהלן
      Ahalan
      Hey

    Here’s how you would use this slang word to say “Hello brother,” in Hebrew:

    • אהלן, אחי! איזה טוב שבאת!
      Ahalan, achi! Eyzeh tov she-bata!
      Hey, brother. It’s great that you came!


    2. Situation-Specific Greetings

    Sundial

    Now that we’ve seen some general greetings, let’s have a look at greetings appropriate to specific situations. Just remember that you want to be sure you use them in the correct setting.

    The first one we’ll look at is a greeting that’s commonly used when we’re welcoming someone, for example, as a guest in our home or perhaps an invitee to a party we’re hosting.

    This greeting, ברוך הבא (barukh haba) literally means “Blessed is he who comes.” However, its connotation is akin to “Welcome.” Apart from the uses mentioned above, it can also be used in a more general sense if we’re simply welcoming someone who arrived from somewhere else. Note that it’s necessary to use the correct grammar in terms of masculine/feminine and singular/plural.

    • ברוך הבא.
      Barukh haba.
      Welcome. [speaking to men]
    • ברוך הבא. זה הבית שלנו.
      Barukh haba. Zeh habayit shelanu.
      Welcome. This is our home.
    • ברוכה הבאה.
      Brukha ha-ba’ah.
      Welcome. [speaking to a woman]
    • ברוכה הבאה. זה הבית שלנו.
      Brukha ha-ba’ah. Zeh habayit shelanu.
      Welcome. This is our home.
    • ברוכים הבאים.
      Brukhim ha-baim.
      Welcome. [speaking to men or a mixed group]
    • ברוכים הבאים. זה הבית שלנו.
      Brukhim ha-baim. Zeh ha-bayit shelanu.
      Welcome. This is our home.
    • ברוכות הבאות.
      Brukhot ha-ba’ot.
      Welcome. [speaking to women]
    • ברוכות הבאות. זה הבית שלנו.
      Brukhot ha-baot. Zeh ha-bayit shelanu.
      Welcome. This is our home.

    The next situational greeting we’ll see is used when answering the telephone. You may notice that this greeting is basically just a hebraicized version of “hello” in English. Allow yourself to chuckle at the sound of it, but remember that if you really want to sound like a native speaker, this is the way Israelis answer the phone!

    • הלו?
      Halo?
      Hello? [when answering the telephone]
    • הלו? עם מי אני מדברת, בבקשה?
      Halo? Im mi ani medaberet, bevakashah?
      Hello? With whom am I speaking, please?


    3. Greetings with Questions

    Woman Holding Question Mark

    The next category of greetings we’re going to look at are greetings with questions. Just like in English, there are quite a number of greetings that incorporate questions. These can either be used straight off the bat to greet someone, or can follow one of the general greetings we learned earlier, such as שלום (shalom) meaning “hello” or היי (hay) meaning “hi.” For example, you could use these phrases to say “Hello, how are you?” in Hebrew.

    1- More Formal

    • מה שְׁלוֹמְךָ?
      Mah shlomkha?
      How are you? [speaking to a man]

    • מה העניינים?
      Mah ha-inyanim?
      What’s going on?
    • היי, שלומית! מה העניינים? יש חדשות לגיי החתונה?
      Hay, Shlomit! Mah ha-inyanim? Yesh chadashot le-gabey ha-chatunah?
      Hey, Shlomit! What’s going on? Any news on the wedding?
    • מה המצב?

      Mah ha-matzav, Ayelet? Lamah lo bat la-shi’ur?
      What’s up, Ayelet? Why didn’t you come to class?


    4. Time-Specific Greetings

    The final category of greetings we’re going to see today are greetings that make reference to the time of day. Just as in most languages, it’s very common to greet people in such a time-specific way. Just as with the greetings that use questions, you can use the following greetings either by themselves or after using one of the general greetings we saw at the beginning of the lesson.

    The phrases we’ll go over in this section include things like “Hello, good day,” in Hebrew and “Hello, good morning,” in Hebrew.

    • בוקר טוב.
      Bokher tov.
      Good morning.
    • בוקר טוב! בא לך קפה?
      Bokher tov! Ba lekha kafeh?
      Good morning! Would you like coffee?
    • צהריים טובים.
      Tzohorayim tovim.
      Good afternoon.
    • צהריים טובים לכם. המונית שלכם מחכה בחוץ.
      Tzohorayim tovim lakhem. Ha-monit shelakhem mechakah bachutz.
      Good afternoon to you. Your taxi is waiting outside.
    • ערב טוב.
      Erev tov.
      Good evening.
    • ערב טוב. אני מקווה שתנוחו, ונתראה מחר!
      Erev tov. Ani mekaveh she-tanuchu, ve-nitraeh machar!
      Good evening. I hope you rest, and see you tomorrow!

    Note that, much like in English, לילה טוב (laylah tov) or “good night” is used not as a greeting, but rather as a farewell.

    How to Celebrate April Fools’ Day in Hebrew

    How to Celebrate April Fools' Day in Hebrew!

    Most everyone is familiar with this day, as it is celebrated nearly everywhere the world. Yet, when exactly is April Fools’ Day? And where did April Fools come from? April Fools’ Day is observed on April 1st every year. This day of jokes and pranks is believed to have stemmed from the 16th-century calendar change in France, when New Year’s Day was moved from April 1 to January 1. This action was taken due to the adoption of the Gregorian calendar.

    However, a few people were resistant to the calendar change, so they continued to observe New Year’s Day on April 1st, rather than the new date. They were referred to as the “April Fools”, and others started playing mocking tricks on them. This custom endured, and is practiced to this day around the world!

    Choose your victims carefully, though; the idea is to get them to laugh with you, not to hurt their feelings or humiliate them in front of others. Be extra careful if you choose to play a prank on your boss - you don’t want to antagonize them with an inappropriate joke.

    3. Some of the Coolest April Fools’ Pranks To Play on Anybody

    Choose Bad or Good

    Right, now that you know the top million April Fools’ words in Hebrew, let’s look at some super pranks and tricks to play on friends, colleagues and family. Some April Fools ideas never grow old, while new ones are born every year.

    Never joke in such a way that it hurts anyone, or humiliates them badly in front of others - the idea is for everybody to laugh and enjoy the fun! Respect is still key, no matter what day of the year it is.

    Cockroach prank

    1- Infestation

    This trick is so simple, yet so creepy, it’s almost unbelievable. Take black paper, cut out the silhouette of a giant cockroach, a spider or another insect, and stick it inside the lampshade of a table lamp. When the lamp is switched on, it will look like a monstrous insect is sitting inside the lampshade. Or, get a whole lot of realistic-looking plastic insects, and spread them over a colleague’s desk and chair, or, at home, over the kids’ beds etc. Creep-factor: stellar.

    2- Which One Doesn’t Fit?

    Put the photo of a celebrity or a notorious politician in a frame, and take it to work on April Fools’ Day. Hang the photo on the staff picture wall, and wait. You’ll be surprised how long it can take for people to notice that one picture doesn’t fit.

    3- Something Weird in the Restroom

    At work, replace the air freshener in the restroom with something noxious like insect killer, oven cleaner or your own odious mixture in a spray bottle. Be sure to cover the bottle’s body so no one suspects a swap.

    Or paint a bar of soap with clear nail polish, and leave it at the hand wash basin. It will not lather.

    Or, if your workplace’s restroom has partitioned toilets with short doors, arrange jeans or trousers and shoes on all but one of the toilet covers, so it looks like every stall is occupied. Now wait for complaints, and see how long it takes for someone to figure out the April Fools’ Day prank. You’ll probably wish you had a camera inside the restroom. But, unless you don’t mind getting fired, don’t put your own recording device in there!

    Funny Face

    4- Call Me Funny

    Prepare and print out a few posters with the following instructions: Lion Roar Challenge! Call this number - 123-456-7890 - and leave your best lion’s roar as voicemail! Best roarer will be announced April 10 in the cafeteria. Prize: $100. (Lion’s roar is just an example; you can use any animal call, or even a movie character’s unique sound, such as Chewbacca from Star Wars. The weirder, the funnier. Obviously!) Put the posters up in the office where most of the staff is likely to see them. Now wait for the owner of the number to visit you with murderous intent. Have a conciliatory gift ready that’s not a prank.

    5- Minty Cookies

    This is another simple but hugely effective prank - simply separate iced cookies, scrape off the icing, and replace it with toothpaste. Serve during lunch or tea break at work, or put in your family’s lunch boxes. Be sure to take photos of your victim’s faces when they first bite into your April Fools’ cookies.

    6- Wild Shopping

    At your local grocer, place a realistic-looking plastic snake or spider among the fresh vegetables. Now wait around the corner for the first yell.

    7- The Oldest Trick in the Book

    Don’t forget probably the oldest, yet very effective April Fools’ joke in the book - smearing hand cream or Vaseline on a door handle that most staff, family or friends are likely to use. Yuck to the max!

    8- Sneeze On Me

    Another golden oldie is also gross, yet harmless and utterly satisfying as a prank. Fill a small spray bottle that you can easily conceal with water. Walk past a friend, colleague or one of your kids, and fake a sneeze while simultaneously spraying them with a bit of water. Expect to be called a totally disgusting person. Add a drop of lovely smelling essential oil to the water for extra confusion.

    9- Word Play Repairs

    Put a fresh leek in the hand wash basin at home or work, and then tell your housemates or colleagues this: “There’s a huge leak in the restroom/bathroom basin, it’s really serious. Please can someone go have a look?!” Expect exasperation and smiles all around. Note that this prank is only likely to work where people understand English well.

    10- Scary Face

    Print out a very scary face on an A4 sheet of paper, and place it in a colleague’s, or one of your kid’s drawers, so it’s the first thing they see when they open the drawer. You may not be very popular for a while.

    11- Wake Up To Madness

    Put foamy shaving cream, or real whipped cream on your hand, and wake your kid up by tickling their nose with it. As long as they get the joke, this could be a wonderful and fun way to start April Fools’ Day.

    Computer Prank

    12- Computer Prank

    This one’s fabulous, if you have a bit of time to fiddle with a colleague, friend or your kid’s computer. It is most effective on a computer where most of the icons they use are on the desktop background itself (as opposed to on the bottom task bar).

    Take and save a screenshot of their desktop with the icons. Set this screenshot as their background image. Now delete all the working icons. When they return to their computer, wait for the curses when no amount of clicking on the icons works.

    13- Monster Under the Cup

    This one will also work well anywhere people meet. Take a paper cup, and write the following on it in black pen: “Danger! Don’t lift, big spider underneath.” Place it upside-down on prominent flat surface, such as a kitchen counter, a colleague’s desk or a restaurant table. Expect some truly interesting responses.

    Door Prank

    14- Prank Door

    Write in large letters on a large and noticeable piece of paper: PUSH. Tape this notice on a door that should be pulled to open, and watch the hilarious struggle of those clever souls who actually read signs.

    4 Reasons Why Hebrew Slang Words Will Make You Fluent

    Learn 4 honest reasons you need Hebrew slang words and why they are so vital to truly learning and mastering the language.

    Teachers may normally cringe at the thought of their students learning Hebrew slang words. After all, slang words and phrases are typically defined as being grammatically incorrect. So why would your teacher want you to spend time learning the “wrong way” to speak Hebrew? Here are 4 of the top reasons why you should study slang words and expressions when learning Hebrew or any new language.

    reasons to learn hebrew slang words

    Create Your Free Lifetime Account and Start Learning the whole Hebrew Language from the Beginning!

    1. Native Speakers Use Slang Expressions in Everyday Conversation

    If you are going to study a foreign language and plan to use it to speak with native speakers, then you have to learn slang words and expressions. Otherwise, just using formal expressions and grammar may alienate you from native speakers and make it more difficult to establish a real connection. So it is best to at least learn some common slang words and expressions if you’re planning to meet or speak socially with someone.

    2. Slang Words Are Used All Throughout Hebrew Culture

    If you turn on any popular Hebrew TV show, listen to any song, or watch any movie, you are quickly going to see the value of learning Hebrew slang phrases. Just like everyday conversations between native speakers, Hebrew culture is filled with slang phrases and expressions. Without at least some knowledge of the more common slang phrases, popular culture and most conversations will be very confusing and potentially alienating.

    Want to Amaze Native Speaker? Be a Good Lover? Our Vocabulary Lists are Made for You!

    3. Slang Expressions Help You Better Express Your True Thoughts and Feelings

    Only relying on formal grammar and vocabulary is very limiting, especially in social situations. Just like in your native language, using the appropriate Hebrew slang words can help you express a broader range of emotions, thoughts, and feelings.

    4. Proper Use of Slang Makes You Sound More Natural

    We’ve all met foreigners who technically used formal language perfectly but still sounded odd and well….foreign. But when you use the right slang words and expressions, you will sound more natural and like a true native speaker. If you notice, even most politicians include a sprinkling of slang expressions and words throughout their speeches to help them sound more natural and to better connect with the audience.

    The Dark Side of Slang Expressions

    Learning Hebrew slang words can indeed help you sound more natural, better understand the people and culture, and make integration much easier. However, there is a dark side: using the wrong slang expressions can also make you look foolish, uneducated, and potentially disrespectful.

    But how do you know which slang words or phrases to use and when?

    The truth is that you can’t learn the most modern and appropriate slang words in textbooks or formal classroom settings. By the time the information gets incorporated into a formal curriculum, it’s already outdated and no longer in use by actual Hebrew people. And while you can learn current slang expressions from Hebrew TV shows, movies, songs, and games, you may not understand the context. If that happens, you may use the right Hebrew slang words but in the wrong situation and still look like a fool or possibly even offend someone.

    Step out from the darkness and Get Your FREE PDF eBook to Start Learning Hebrew!

    So where can you learn current slang expressions and the right context in which to use them?

    At HebrewPod101, native speaking instructors create audio and video lessons that can include slang expressions and words. Our instructors provide context and examples for all the Hebrew slang words used in any lesson to make sure students understand the right time and place to use them.

    Hebrew slang words and expressions may be grammatically incorrect but they are vital to truly understanding and immersing yourself in the culture. In fact, it will be very difficult to fully understand any movie, TV show, song, game, or even 1-on-1 conversation without knowing a few of the more common slang expressions.

    However, it is important to learn the proper context and use of even popular slang expressions or you may come across as confusing, disrespectful, or uneducated.
    At HebrewPod101, you’ll learn how to use slang phrases and words to draw the right attention and avoid these problems.

    You can learn every day at your own pace
    One of the best approaches for learning a language is little by little and often. It’s not efficient to take in a huge amount of information at one time. What you need is to study on a regular basis – a little bit of Hebrew every day. You commute several days a week, and that is all time you can take advantage of!

    You have the freedom to choose the lessons and podcasts you want to focus on, at your own rhythm. You may want to do a little revision or discover how to talk about a new topic. And if you’re wondering what to learn next, you can use the new Learning Paths, which is our customized pathway feature that gives you a step-by-step way to learn Hebrew without getting lost!

    If you don’t have a car and commute by another method, these tips are still valid! Learning Hebrew is no longer limited to the classroom or your house; there are so many benefits to learning in your car or elsewhere. Reaching a conversational level will take you less time than you could ever have imagined! Don’t forget to sign up for your Free Lifetime Account and enjoy our content!
