Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Hebrew Season 1, Lesson 3 - Manners. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to thank other people in various ways in Hebrew.
Body

Yaara: [Normal] תודה [Slow] תודה (toda)
Eric: Next is the adjective meaning 'much,’ or ‘vast'

Eric: Last is the preposition meaning 'to you'
Yaara: [Normal] לך [Slow] לך(le'kha)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Thank you very much.'

Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: If you’re not sure about whether to use Toda raba lakh or Toda raba lekha, keeping it simple is always your safest bet. Toda can be used on its own with just about anyone, anywhere, at anytime!

Hi Samuel Santos,


Thanks for your comment.


Yes, that sounds a little tricky... I would suggest you to not take the romanization too seriously, as after all it's only meant to be a tool that guides pronunciation and not a real writing system per se... 😅


Enjoy learning and let us know may you have any questions!

Best,

Roi (רוֹעִי) 😉

ערב טוב, רוֹעִ

Learning Hebrew has become a way to get three parallel languages: vowelled Hebrew, romanized Hebrew and modern Hebrew (מודרני עברית)...


Excel software is helping me to have a list of already some 400 words...


תּוֹדָה שֶׁלִּי חֲבֵרִים טוֹבִים

Hi Charly,


Thanks for posting your question!


Correct. תודה לָךְ is the way to thank a female.

A group of women would be: "תּוֹדה לָכֵן" and a group of man: "תּוֹדה לָכֶם".


Happy to help! Keep up the good work 😄

Hi,

i did learn now תודה לְךָ.

If i will say thank you to a lady, would i use תודה לָךְ?

And what about a group of lords and a group of ladies?
