Lesson Transcript

Hi, Hebrew learners! Welcome to Hebrew Weekly Words. My name is Yaara and this week’s theme is Direction Words. Now, this can be a bit tricky so pay attention!
1.
צפון
(tsafon) “north”
תראו, זה כוכב הצפון!
(tir'uu, ze kokhav ha'tsafon!)
“Look, it's the North Star!”
2.
דרום
(darom) “south”
דרום הוא הפוך לצפון.
(darom hu hafukh le'tsafon.)
“South is opposite to north.”
3.
מזרח
(mizrakh) “east”
השמש זורחת במזרח.
(ha'shemesh zorakhat ba'mizrakh.)
“The sun rises in the east.”
מזרח
(mizrakh) can be easy to remember because it’s similar to the word
[זורח]
(zoreach) which means “shines”. It may be a bit easier to remember.
4.
מערב
(ma-arav) “west”
הייתי רוצה לחיות במערב הפרוע.
(haiti rotsa likhyot ba'ma-arav ha'paru-ah.)
“I would want to live in the Wild West.”
I wouldn’t know because it sounds scary, but you know, for the sake of the sentence.
5.
פנים
(pnim) “inside”
איפה את? אני כבר בפנים.
(eifo at? ani kvar bifnim.)
“Where are you? I'm already inside.”
So
[בפנים]
(bifnim) literally means “in the inside”.
So this is the end. We were talking about Direction Words. Thank you so much for watching. Leave us a comment if you have any questions and don’t forget to check out the site. See you next week. Bye!

Thank you, Roi. Every once in a while I wax poetic. I noticed a few misspellings that you found and a verb agreement fix.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Shelley,


Thanks for commenting and for your beautiful sentence :)


השמש זורחת במזרח ושוקעת במערב. שניהם יפים, כמו גם קשת בגשם עדין. בצפון ובדרום ישנן נפלאות קפואות. הטבע מדהים מצוי בכל הכיוונים על פני כדור הארץ


Note:

west - מערב

there are (plural) = ישנם masculine ישנן feminine


Yours,

Roi

Notes are on the suנject of furniture for the direction words.


The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Both are beautiful, as well as a rainbow in a gentle rain. In the North and the South, there are frozen splendors. Awesome nature is found in all directions on Earth.
