Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: Since Israelis are very opinionated and always happy to share their insights, the best way to find a good restaurant in Israel is simply asking for recommendations. This is the best way to find the most authentic local restaurants and all the hidden gems.

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!

Hi Ayo,


Thanks for posting!


Good work! Just one note - you accidentally used apostrophes (') instead of "yods" ("י"). They are similar - but there's still a difference ! 😄😄


keep up the good work!

Hi Samuel Santos,


Thanks for posing!


Great work! Note only that you have a little typo on the word "בשבילי" (no "ת" at the end... 😄)


Best,
