Lesson Transcript

Hi, everyone! Welcome to Hebrew Weekly Words. My name is Yaara and today, we’re going to talk about New Year's resolutions, those decisions we make every year so that we can feel guilty afterwards when we don’t follow through, yeah. So let’s learn 10 of this. Let’s start!
1.
לאכול בריא
(le'echol bari)
"to eat healthy"
I make this decision once a week and then I go celebrate it with a pizza.
2.
לבלות יותר זמן עם המשפחה
(levalot yoter zman im ha'mishpacha)
"to spend more time with the family"
This is always a good resolution.
3.
להוריד במשקל
(lehorid bamishkal)
"to lose weight"
We also say
לרזות
(lirzot)
which means to lose weight, but it literally means “to get thinner”
לרזות
(lirzot).
4.
להפסיק לעשן
(lehafsik le'ashen)
"to quit smoking"
My best advice for you is don’t start, but if you’ve started, it’s never too late to stop.
5.
להתעמל בקביעות
(le'hitamel be'kviyut)
"to exercise regularly"
You really should do it and you don’t have to do something boring like running. It can be something fun.
6.
לחסוך כסף
(lachsoch kesef)
"to save money"
Well when you learn Hebrew, it’s a bit hard to say
לחסוך כסף
(lachsoch kesef)
but you should try it, come on! Practice.
7.
ללמוד משהו חדש
(lilmod mashehu chadash)
"to learn something new"
Like hula hooping, no I’m kidding.
8.
לקרוא יותר
(likro yoter)
"to read more"
השנה היחלטתי לקרוא יותר
(Hashana hechlatety likro yoter)
“This year, I decided to read more.”
We do it a lot, don’t we? Well like yeah, I want a vacation, I’m going to read so much and then spend most of your time with your phone.
9.
לשתות פחות
(lishtot pachot)
"to drink less"
Yeah, I’ll drink to that!
10.
ללמוד עברית עם Hebrewpod101.com
(lilmod ivrit im hibrupod101.com)
"to learn Hebrew with Hebrewpod101.com"

Shalom Tiago,


I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean by "second English course."

This is the HebrewPod101.com, not EnglishClass101.com.

Hi Shelley,


Well, unfortunately no, there isn't a direct parallel in Hebrew to the ing present tense, and the continuity is expressed in different ways.


Yours,

Shalom Roi, I like your phrase. Eating is not in the present tense in your phrase. How is an ing word formed from a verb? Do you use the root and add a hay at the end? The Yud seems to replace the vav as well. Is there a lesson that shows this?

Hi Shelley,


Excellent work! thanks for sharing your translation :)

Small correction - it's better to phrase as "על יד אכילה בריאה" - al yadei is referring to a mean of action, (אכילה) not a verb (לאכול)
