Hi Martín Quiroga,
Thanks for posting and for this feedback!
Yes, we agree that this would have been better... This issue is one of a few that involve the way we handle the feminine/masculine presence and we are actually currently working on making this and other necessary changes in our lessons and avoid such confusion in the future.
Thanks again and enjoy learning Hebrew!
I think you need to include feminine verb forms when they are spoken by a girl/woman. It'll help us learners understand how Hebrew works.
Thank you for all your kind message! It's great you found it helpful! 😎
If you ever have any questions, please let us know. 😉

Approaching someone in Hebrew correctly depends on two factors - gender and number (plural or singular). This is why we actually have 4 ways to ask "how are you" in Hebrew:
asking a female - "ma shlomekh?"
asking a male - "ma shlomkha?"
asking a group of females - "ma shlomkhen?"
asking a group of males - "ma shlomkhem?"
I hope that helps :)
Hi Andrea Eisenberg and Danielle,
Thanks for commenting!
Note that the gender of the speaker and the gender of the receiver are two different topics. Here, there's no problem in the phrase "ma shlomkha?" said by a woman. This is simply how one (woman or man) would ask a man "how are you?"
The gender of the speaker is important when talking about oneself - as in "I'm walking" - here, a man would say "אני הולך" (ani holekh) while a woman would say "אני הולכת" (ani holekhet)
Is this clearer now? Please let me know if a further explanation is needed 👍
