Hi Carlos Fellip,


Thanks for posting!


Great job with writing the Hebrew phrase! You only missed one letter on the word "patient" - סבלני (not סבלי) 😅


Yours,

Roi

lol Thanks Roi, Glad that the translations were good. I can't seem to spell in Hebrew just like my spelling in English.

But couldn't find the first two in the dictionary. Patient to patience and kind to kindness. From your corrections they both must end in "ut". Thank you again.

Important qualities for getting along is patience and kindness. התוכנות חשובות לחסתדרר הם סבלאנית ואדיבות


If you are in the student council then it is preferred that you will be polite. אם אתה במועצת הטלמידים עדיף שתהיה מנומס


I make an effort to wake up and go to work every day. אני משתדלת להתערר וללכת לעבודה כל יום
