Lesson Transcript

Hey, everyone! Welcome to Hebrew Weekly Words. I am Yaara, and today we’re going to learn about “Mammals”
(arie) “lion”
(arie) is actually also a Hebrew name though we usually pronounce it
הלוואי שהיה לי אריה מחמד
(haleay shehaya li arie machmad)
“I wish I had a pet lion.”
Though not really because I’m sure it would have been really cruel.
(arnav) “rabbit”
ארנבים הם חמודים אבל מסריחים
(arnavim hem chamudim aval masrichim)
“Rabbits are cute but smelly.”
And so it’s true if you ever had a rabbit.
(dov) “bear”
(dov) can also be a name.
לסבא שלי קראו דוב
(lesaba sheli kar'uu dov)
“My grandfather was named Dov.”
(kelev) “dog”
יש לי כלב קטן ורועש
(yesh li kelev katan ve'roesh)
“I have a small, loud dog.”
Is it true that small dogs are usually loud? It feels like it.
(chatul) “cat”
I love cats and I love the word - the Hebrew word for “cat”
I feel it really conveys the essence of being a cat. And now I have a surprise!
זה החתול שלי
(ze hachatul sheli) Mmm-mm.
“This is my cat.”
Smoopy - his name is Smoopy, yes.
So that was the grand finale of this episode. We were talking about Mammals. Thank you so much for watching. Leave us a comment below. Don’t forget to check out the site and see you next week. Bye!
Psst, meow, pssss,psss, psss.

Hi Jeffrey Sacks, Marcel and Mary Vavra,

Thanks for your comments!

@Jeffrey Sacks - haha yes he's cute! do you have a cat too?

@Marcel - sorry - I don't understand French, can you repost that in English, please?

@Mary Vavra - Thanks for sharing this... interesting. It true that when we create links in our mind to stories and memories information tends to "stick" better... a ginger cat in Hebrew is: חתול ג'ינג'י - Chatul gingi ('g' as in "ginger")

I like the sound of the sentence about the black cat walking over the screen....my favourite of all is a few weeks ago...the tiger prowling round in the wood. But the Hebrew sound for R is very difficult for a foreigner to make. Lehitraot

Dear Yaara.....For some reason I have been able to remember the words in this lesson better than in almost every other one (getting train tickets for Haifa being the other...maybe that’s because my husband is train mad and escaped Czechslovakia when the Russians invaded in 1968 with one pound in his pocket and a suitcase full of model trains,!!!) Shmooky is the star of the show. What is ginger cat in Hebrew.?

Hi Shelley,

Thanks for your answer :)

Yeah it's a common problem figuring out the "corrections"... I guess we just have to take more care ?

Actually I'm also not so sure where "dinner" came from, but I'm glad you got my meaning right!
