Lesson Transcript

Hi everybody, Idit here. Welcome to Hebrew top words and today, we are going to talk about Top 10 Most Popular Train or Bus Stations in Israel. Let’s start.
1.
התחנה המרכזית ירושלים
(Hatachana hamerkazit yerushalayim)
“Jerusalem Central Station.”
תמיד לחוץ בתחנה המרכזית בירושלים
(Tamid lachuts batachana hamerkazit yerushalaym.)
It's always busy at Jerusalem Central Station.
Luckily, I have never been.
2.
שדה התעופה בן גוריון
(Sde hateufa ben gurion)
Ben Gurion Airport.
שדה התעופה בן גוריון הוא הגדול והחשוב בישראל.
(Sde teufa ben gurion hu hagadol vehachashuv beisrael.)
"Ben Gurion Airport is the largest main airport in Israel.”
It is also named after the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion. So Ben-Gurion airport is supposedly in Tel Aviv but it’s not really. It’s close. And it’s in a city called Lod.
3.
האוניברסיטה
(Hauniversita)
“University”
הסטודנטים ירדו בתחנת האוניברסיטה.
(Hastudentim yardu betachanat hauniversita.)
“The students got off at the University Station.”
That’s a very important train station in Tel Aviv and one that was actually the closest to my house. So it is called the University station because it’s just right next to Tel Aviv University. So it makes it convenient for students from all over the country to get there.
4.
העיר העתיקה
(hair ha'atika)
“Old City”
אנשים מכל הדתות מתגוררים בעיר העתיקה.
(Anashim mikol hadatot mitgorerim bayr ha'atika.)
“People from all religions live in the Old City.”
When we say the Old City, we mean the Old City of Jerusalem which is right down in the center of Jerusalem metropolitan I guess today. That’s the old city that existed for thousands of years.
5.
שוק מחנה יהודה
(Shuk machane yehuda)
“Mahane Yehuda Market”
שוק מחנה יהודה הוא כמו שני מקומות שונים במשך היום והלילה.
(Shuk machne yehuda hu kmo shney mekomot shonim bemeshekh hayom vehalayla.)
"Mahane Yehuda Market is like two different places during the day and during the night.”
It’s actually very true like during the day, it’s just a market with you know, people selling vegetables and fish and meat and whatever and at night time, there are many nice restaurants there and bars and all of young people hang out. So it’s not just for like old grannies to go shopping for vegetables for soup, but it’s also like very hip kind of an area for young people to hang out. It’s kind of cool.
6.
רכבת סבידור מרכז
(Rakevet savidor merkaz)
“Savidor Railway Station”
אנחנו צריכים להחליף רכבת בסבידור מרכז.
(Anachnu tsrikhim lehachlif rakevet besavidor merkaz.)
“We need to change trains at the Savidor Merkaz Station.”
So yes, usually this is the station when you usually have to change trains when you are going from the north part of Israel to the south. It will happen in Tel Aviv which is the center and that will be the station that you will change it in.
7.
מרכזית חוף הכרמל
(Merkazit chof hacarmel)
“Carmel Beach Central Bus Station.”
אף פעם לא הייתי בתחנה המרכזית חוף הכרמל.
(Af pa'am lo haiti batachana hamerkazit chof hakarmel.)
“I have never been to the Carmel Beach Central Bus Station.”
I actually have many, many times. My boyfriend used to live. A long, long, long time ago, I had a boyfriend Haifa and I used to go there all the time.
8.
השלום - עזריאלי
(Hashalom)
“Azrieli”
אחר הצהריים יש המון חיילים באיזור השלום - עזריאלי.
(Achar ha-tsoharayim yesh hamon chayalim be-ezor ha-shalom - azrieli.)
“In the afternoons, there are lot of soldiers around Hashalom-Azrieli area.
This is again a very big train station in Tel Aviv. And it’s right next to a big shopping mall called Azrieli and that shopping mall is very close to our military base.
9.
תחנת הרכבת בית יהושע
(tachanat harakevet bet yehoshua)
“Beit Yehoshua Train Station”
אני תמיד עולה בתחנת הרכבת בית יהושוע.
(Ani tamid ola betachanat harakevet bet yehoshua.)
“I always take the train from Biet Yehoshua.”
I have to admit I don’t know where that is. I think it’s up north. I don’t know.
10.
שער יפו
(Sha'ar yafo)
“Jaffa Gate”
שבוע שעבר הלכנו לאכול חומוס במסעדה על יד שער יפו.
(Shavu’a sha’avar halakhnu le’ekhol chumus be-mis’adah al yad sha’ar Yafo)
“Last week, we ate hummus at a restaurant near Jaffa Gate.”
I like hummus.
Okay everybody. That’s it. Those were top 10 popular train and bus stations in Israel, not the most sexy of subject but please let me know in the comments below what do you think about it and how do the train and bus stations look like in your country and I will see you next time. Bye bye.
