Lesson Transcript

INTRODUCTION
Sherah: Hi everyone, and welcome back to HebrewPod101.com. This is Beginner Season 1 Lesson 7 - Registering for a Course in Israel. Sherah Here.
Amir: שלום I'm Amir.
Sherah: In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use ההוא to indicate something specific. The conversation takes place at a University.
Amir: It's between Hadas and a clerk in a University.
Sherah: The speakers are in a casual setting, so they will be using informal Hebrew. Okay, let's listen to the conversation.

Lesson conversation

הדס: סליחה, איפה משרד הניהול של האוניברסיטה? אני צריכה ללכת לשם.
איש: בבניין ההוא.
הדס: תודה
(פותחת דלת)
הדס: שלום, שמי הדס בר-לב. אני סטודנטית חדשה בפקולטה למוסיקה.
פקיד: ברוכה הבאה. יש לך ניירת בשבילי?
הדס: כן, הנה הבגרות שלי. מה עוד אתה צריך?
פקיד: אני צריך אישור ששילמת.
הדס: בבקשה. איפה הבניין למוסיקה?
פקיד: זה הבניין השלישי בצד ימין.
הדס: תודה.
Sherah: Listen to the conversation one time slowly.
הדס: סליחה, איפה משרד הנהול של האוניברסיטה? אני צריכה ללכת לשם.
איש: בבניין ההוא.
הדס: תודה
(פותחת דלת)
הדס: שלום, שמי הדס בר-לב. אני סטודנטית חדשה בפקולטה למוסיקה.
פקיד: ברוכה הבאה. יש לך ניירת בשבילי?
הדס: כן, הנה הבגרות שלי. מה עוד אתה צריך?
פקיד: אני צריך אישור ששילמת.
הדס: בבקשה. איפה הבניין למוסיקה?
פקיד: זה הבניין השלישי בצד ימין.

Sherah: Listen to the conversation with the English translation.
Hadas: Excuse me, where is the University's administration office? I need to go there.
Man: It's in that building.
Hadas: Thank you.
(Opens the door)
Hadas: Hello, my name is Hadas Bar-Lev. I’m a new student at the Faculty of Music.
Clerk: Welcome. Do you have some paperwork for me?
Hadas: Yes, here are my matriculation papers. What more do you need?
Clerk: I need confirmation that you paid.
Hadas: Here it is. Where’s the music building?
Clerk: It’s the third building on the right.
Hadas: Thank you.
POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Sherah: Getting a higher education is very important in Israel.
Amir: Most people consider a first rate degree to be essential in finding a job.
Sherah: There are eight different universities in Israel to choose from.
Amir: And many colleges as well.
Sherah: The first three Israeli universities were actually created before the modern State of Israel came to be, during the British Mandate.
Amir: The first University was the Technion, the University I attended.
Sherah: What a coincidence! I believe it was created in 1912, right?
Amir: That’s right - it was pivotal in determining the direction universities would take in terms of the instructional language.
Sherah: Yes, there was a discussion about what language they would use, and it it was between Hebrew and German.
Amir: In the end, they chose Hebrew and that helped encourage the use of Hebrew in general in Israel, and in universities in the future.
Sherah: The second University was Hebrew University in Jerusalem and that was founded in 1925.
Amir: It was followed by the Weizmann Institute in 1934.
Sherah: After the State of Israel was established, five more universities were founded.
Amir: This includes the largest of all the universities, Tel Aviv University.
Sherah: Okay, now onto the vocab.

KEY VOCAB AND PHRASES
Sherah: Let's have a closer look at the usage of some of the words and phrases from this lesson. The first word is..
Amir: ההוא
Sherah: meaning "that"
Sherah: When Hadas asked where the administration building was, the man she asked responded with בבניין ההוא.
Amir: You use this phrase when you’re referring to a specific object.
Sherah: When the object is a feminine noun, you would use ההיא.
Amir: The phrase is made of two parts, the definite article -ה and the pronoun הוא or היא.
Sherah: The two together mean “that”.
Amir: Or “that one”.
Sherah: Can you give us an example using this word?
Amir: Sure. For example, you could say.. הוא אוכל במסעדה ההיא
Sherah: ...which means "He’s eating at that restaurant." Okay, now onto the grammar.

Lesson focus

Sherah: In this lesson, you will learn to register as a new student at a University using the verb צריך.
Amir: In Hebrew, like in other languages, you use certain modal verbs to modify the meaning of a second verb. They can also be used to express some sort of obligation.
Sherah: The verb צריך is used in both ways in our dialogue.
Amir: The first time we see צריך, it’s combined with the verb ללכת in the infinitive.
Sherah: Hadas says אני צריכה ללכת לשם meaning “I need to go there”.
Amir: This is the feminine singular version of צריך which she uses because she is a woman.
Sherah: The second time we see this verb is when Hadas is talking with the clerk in the administration office.
Amir: There she says מה עוד אתה צריך?
Sherah: Here she uses the masculine singular form.
Amir: That’s because she is addressing a male clerk.
Sherah: So let’s go over the four forms of צריך.
Amir: First is the base form, the masculine singular form, which is צריך.
Sherah: Next is the feminine singular form.
Amir: That is צריכה
Sherah: Next is the masculine plural.
Amir: צריכים
Sherah: And last is the feminine plural.
Amir: צריכות
Sherah: This verb is somewhat irregular and follows the same pattern as adjectives.
Amir: The third time we see this verb used is when the clerk responds to Hadas by saying אני צריך אישור ששילמת.
Sherah: Here again the masculine singular form was used.
Amir: That’s because it’s the clerk speaking in first person.
Sherah: So let’s hear some more examples of this verb used in action. Can you start us off with the first one?
Amir: Sure, the first sample sentence is היא צריך מעיל חדש
Sherah: This means “he needs a new coat” and uses the masculine singular form of the verb.
Amir: הילדה צריכה כוס מיים
Sherah: Which means “The girl needs a glass of water”. Here the feminine singular version of the verb is used because it agrees with ילדה a feminine noun.
Amir: And last is הם צריכים לשון
Sherah: “They need to sleep”. This used the masculine plural form agreeing with הם.

Outro

Sherah: Okay, that’s all for this lesson. Thank you for listening, everyone, and we’ll see you next time! Bye!
Amir: תודה

Hi קמילה,


Thanks for posting and for sharing!


I'm 100% sure that you will be! great work! 😉😉😄😄👍👍


A few little fixes -

אני הייתי באולפן לפני כמה שנים.. היה גדול, זה איפה שהתחלתי ללמוד עברית. אולי בעתיד אני אחזור לשם כדי ללמוד עוד הפעם באולפן.. אני מקווה שבפעם הבאה הרמה שלי תהיה יותר גבוהה!

Keep up the good effort!

Yours,

Hi Cassuto,


Thanks for posting!


I'm not sure what you meant here exactly... the correct Romanization for the word "בשבילי" is - 'bish'vili' - as in the lesson.


Could you please clarify your intention, in case I didn't understand you correctly?


Yours,

Roi

I want to reinstate my subscription. However, I do not want to commit for two years. Can I pay month by month or at least for one year at a time?
