Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Hebrew Season 1, Lesson 20 - Talking about Your Likes. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to ask and affirmatively answer questions in Hebrew.
Body
Eric: First, you’ll learn how to ask 'Do you like chocolate?' in Hebrew.
Yaara: [Normal] אתה אוהב שוקולד?(ata ohev shokolad?)
Eric: First is a pronoun meaning 'You'
Yaara: [Normal] אתה [Slow] אתה (ata)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning 'Love'
Yaara: [Normal] אוהב [Slow] אוהב(ohev)
Eric: Last is the noun meaning 'Chocolate'
Yaara: [Normal] שוקולד [Slow] שוקולד(shokolad)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Do you like chocolate?'
Yaara: [Slow] אתה אוהב שוקולד? [Normal] אתה אוהב שוקולד?
Eric: Ok, now let's see the informal way to say 'Do you like sweets?'
Yaara: [Normal] את אוהבת מתוקים?(at ohevet metukim?)
Eric: First is a feminine pronoun meaning 'You',
Yaara: [Normal] את [Slow] את (at)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning 'Love'
Yaara: [Normal] אוהבת [Slow] אוהבת(ohevet)
Eric: Last is the noun meaning 'Sweets'
Yaara: [Normal] מתוקים [Slow] מתוקים(metukim)
Eric: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning 'Do you like sweets?'
Yaara: [Slow] את אוהבת מתוקים? [Normal] את אוהבת מתוקים?
Eric: Next, we’ll learn how to say 'Yes, very much.'
Yaara: [Normal] כן, מאוד.(ken, me'od.)
Eric: First is an adverb meaning 'Yes'
Yaara: [Normal] כן [Slow] כן(ken)
Eric: Last is the adverb meaning 'Very'
Yaara: [Normal] מאוד [Slow] מאוד(me'od)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Yes, very much.'
Yaara: [Slow] כן, מאוד. [Normal] כן, מאוד.
Eric: Finally, we have an informal way to say 'Yes, I love them.'
Yaara: [Normal] כן, אני מת עליהם.(ken, ani met alehem.)
Eric: First is an adverb meaning 'Yes'
Yaara: [Normal] כן [Slow] כן(ken)
Eric: Next is the pronoun meaning 'I'
Yaara: [Normal] אני [Slow] אני(ani)
Eric: Next is the verb meaning 'Die'
Yaara: [Normal] מת [Slow] מת(met)
Eric: Last is the preposition meaning 'On them'
Yaara: [Normal] עליהם [Slow] עליהם(alehem)
Eric: Listen again to the informal phrase meaning 'Yes, I love them.'
Yaara: [Slow] כן, אני מת עליהם. [Normal] כן, אני מת עליהם.
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: The verb Le'ehov doesn’t necessarily express romantic feelings. It can express love between a mother and child, or between good friends. Moreover, it can be used to describe one’s likes and dislikes. For example "I like tennis" would be "ani ohev tenis". "No thanks, I don't like pizza" would be "lo toda, ani lo ohev pitza". That’s because in Hebrew, the verb "le'ehov" doesn't necessarily have the same strong connotations or intensity as the verb "to love" has in English.

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!
Yaara: להתראות

Hi Samuel Santos,


Thanks for commenting! 😄


Please accept this correction for your translation -

אני אוהב ללמוד וגם לאכול שוקולד, שוקולד מריר!

(In Hebrew, "dark chocolate" is actually "bitter chocolate" = "שוקולד מריר")


Keep up the great work 👍


Best,

Roi

אֲנִי אוֹהֵב לוֹמֵד וְגַם אֲכִילַת שׁוֹקוֹלָד, שָחֹר שׁוֹקוֹלָד :)

It’s very good! זֶה טוֹב מְאוֹד!

Hello, I have written a sentence and asked a question four comments below and it doesn't look correct to me, would someone please correct it?

Also half of your learners are women, It would be lovely to present the feminine verb for die in the present tense, metah, as you have for "love" to prevent confusion. I see in my sentence below that I and Giarda used the masculine form since the feminine was not presented.

Shalom Lena, actually" love" is given in two forms and the gender is not listed in the pdf notes and "you "is given in two forms and listed in the notes but the review does not differentiate which is the proper response and that is what is needed to answer correctly-whether the feminine or masculine is requested. Please make the corrections.

Hello friends-please indicate in the review if the masculine or feminine is the expected response for the words "you and love". Thank you.

כן אני אוהבת ללמוד עברית אבל עכשו אני אייפה. אני מת על שוקולד ולא אייפה מדי בשביל זה. Yes, I love to study Hebrew, but now I am tired. I love chocolate and I am not( never) too tired for it. Can I substitute ( af Paam for lo in this sentence)?
