“hour”
שעה

Hi Christina Feriadi,


Thanks for posting about this.


As you probably know, there is an option to play the lesson at a lower speed (using the x1 button on the video). I do agree that some of the example phrases, however, might be a little fast... I will forward this to our team 👍


Enjoy learning Hebrew, and a very happy new year!

Best,

Roi

I wish the phasing was more distinguishable and not so quick to utter.

Hi Jason,


Thanks for commenting!


In Hebrew, we don't differentiate between "child" and "boy", and we use the same word for both - "ילד" (the feminine "child" is "yalda" - ילדה).

The plural "children" is - as explained by Ya'ara on the lesson - "ילדים" - yeladim. 😄😄😄


Happy to help,

Roi

A boy is ילד,yeled. In the video this is said to be "child", but Yaara pronounces and romanizes "child" ילדים, or 'yeladeem'. (ילדה or, yeldah, is girl for those so inclined).


This should be corrected.

Hi Louis Boer,


Thanks for posting.


Did you listen to the example under the vocabulary word 'friend'? There you can hear very clearly that the word "הולכים" is pronounced as it should be: "hol-khim".


Yours,

Roi
