Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Hebrew Season 1, Lesson 7 - Do You Speak English? In this lesson, you’ll learn how to ask and answer the question ‘Do you speak English?’ in Hebrew.
Body
Eric: Here is how to say 'Do you speak English?' in Hebrew.
Yaara: [Normal] אתה מדבר אנגלית?(ata medaber anglit?)

Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'Do you speak English?'

Eric: Ok, now let's take a look at the same question when asked to a woman - 'Do you speak English?'
Yaara: [Normal] את מדברת אנגלית?(at medaberet anglit?)
Eric: First is a pronoun meaning 'You' when the other person is female.

Eric: Next we’ll look at how to say 'Yes, I speak English.'
Yaara: [Normal] כן, אני מדברת אנגלית.(ken, ani medaberet anglit.)
Eric: First is an adverb meaning 'Yes'
Yaara: [Normal] כן [Slow] כן(ken)
Eric: Next is the pronoun meaning 'I'

Yaara: [Normal] לא, אני לא מדבר אנגלית.(lo, ani lo medaber anglit.)
Eric: First is an adverb meaning 'No'
Yaara: [Normal] לא [Slow] לא(lo)

Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: For those of you who aren’t only English speakers, you can obviously use this question with any language you need. Most Israeli people study other European languages at school, so maybe you’ll get lucky! Just substitute Anglit with…
Rusit for Russian.
Italkit for Italian.
Sfaradit for Spanish.
or Tzarfatit for French.

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
