Lesson Transcript

Introduction
Eric: Welcome to 3-Minute Hebrew Season 1, Lesson 9 - Using Adjectives. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use adjectives in simple sentences in Hebrew.
Body
Eric: First, we’ll learn how to say 'I’m tall.’ in Hebrew.
Yaara: [Normal] אני גבוה (ani gavoha.)
Eric: First is a pronoun meaning 'I'
Yaara: [Normal] אני [Slow] אני (ani)
Eric: Last is the adjective meaning ‘tall'
Yaara: [Normal] גבוה [Slow] גבוה(gavoha)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'I’m tall.’
Yaara: [Slow] אני גבוה. [Normal] אני גבוה.
Eric: Ok, now let's take a look at how to say 'She’s smart.'
Yaara: [Normal] היא חכמה.(hi khakhama.)
Eric: First is a word meaning 'She'
Yaara: [Normal] היא [Slow] היא (hi)
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'Smart'
Yaara: [Normal] חכמה [Slow] חכמה(khakhama)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'She’s smart.'
Yaara: [Slow] היא חכמה. [Normal] היא חכמה.
Eric: Next, we’ll learn how to say 'We’re shy.'
Yaara: [Normal] אנחנו ביישנים.(anakh'nu baishanim.)
Eric: First is a word meaning 'We'
Yaara: [Normal] אנחנו [Slow] אנחנו (anakh'nu)
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'shy'
Yaara: [Normal] ביישנים [Slow] ביישנים(baishanim)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'We’re shy.'
Yaara: [Slow] אנחנו ביישנים. [Normal] אנחנו ביישנים.
Eric: Finally, we have a phrase meaning 'You’re funny. '
Yaara: [Normal] אתה מצחיק.(ata matz’khik.)
Eric: First is a word meaning 'You'
Yaara: [Normal] אתה [Slow] אתה(ata)
Eric: Last is the word meaning 'Funny'
Yaara: [Normal] מצחיק [Slow] מצחיק(matz'khik)
Eric: Listen again to the phrase meaning 'You’re funny. '
Yaara: [Slow] אתה מצחיק. [Normal] אתה מצחיק.
Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Yaara: If you want to emphasize an adjective in Hebrew, you can use the word Meod.
For example, you can say…
yafe meod, meaning very beautiful.
taim meod, meaning very delicious.
or nekhmadim meod, meaning “very kind” (in the plural masculine form.)

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 and for sharing your translation! very good! Please allow me to correct it where it's needed.

1st - my name is written almost as you wrote - the correct way is "רועי" with a "י" at the end. This is always the case at the end of a word when the vowel is "khirik" (ee) - we must add a "yod" to "close" the word.



Have a try is very important - not a coherent Hebrew grammar - one would phrase it as:

*חשוב לנסות*

Israel has a long and old history

ישראל יש היסטוריה ארוכה *ועתיקה*

"Gave Ten commandments to the world" - this sentence is missing the subject - who did this? this is missing in the Hebrew phrase as well and it's incorrect without...

נתן את עשרת הדיברות לכָל העולם

"In my country, there are many Hebrew names"

במדינה שלי הרבה שמות *עבריים* - a name" is a masculine noun in Hebrew "


Happy to assist :)


Best,

שָׁלוֹם רוֹעִ!

First of all I wonder if your name is well written in Hebrew! Just tried a transliteration.

הַעַבוֹדָה שֶלִי הַיּוֹם

Have a try is very important

לעשות את הניסיון הוא חשוב

Israel has a long and old history

ישראל יש היסטוריה ארוכה ועתיק

Gave Ten comandments to the world

נתן את עשרת הדיברות לכָל העולם

In my country there are many Hebrew names

במדינה שלי הרבה שמות עבריות

like these:

כאלו:

Manuel, Maria, José


I have an Hebrew name

יש לי שם עברי

I am not too old to learn a new language.

אני לא מבוגר מדי בשביל ללמוד שפה חדשה.

Only possible with the help of a dictionary and some exemples
