Lesson Transcript

Shalom, ani Yana. Hi everybody! I’m Yana.
Welcome to HebrewPod101.com’s “Ivrit be-shalosh dakot”. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Hebrew.
In the last lesson, we learned some words used when apologizing in Hebrew, including Sliha and Ani mitstaeret/mitstaer. In this lesson we are going to learn numbers in Hebrew.
Yes, numbers! Misparim! From one to ten. And you are going to learn them in only three minutes, be-shalosh dakot!
you already know the first number from last lesson and can make a full sentence!!
Do you remember kafe ehad bevakasha??
Ready? Let’s start!
[slowly] Ehad.
[slowly] Shtaim.
[slowly] Shalosh.
[slowly] Arba.
[slowly] Hamesh.
[slowly] Shesh.
[slowly] Sheva.
[slowly] Shmone.
[slowly] Tesha.
[slowly] Eser.
Okay, now repeat after me. I'll say the numbers and give you time to repeat each one.
1. Ehad
2. Shtaim
3. Shalosh
4. Arba
5. Hamesh
6. Shesh
7. Sheva
8. Shmone
9. Tesha
10. Eser
Great job!
What is before ehad? Do you know?
It’s Efes.
[slowly] Efes.
You don’t have any more excuses! You can give your friends your cell phone number in Hebrew!
Let’s try together.
We’ll use the phrase Ha-mispar sheli hu;, which means “my number is:”
[slowly] Ha-mispar sheli hu;
Ha-mispar sheli hu;
Shalosh, shalosh, sheva, ehad, shtaim, shtaim, arba, tesha, shesh, shmone.
Can you read it by yourself?
[short pause] 337 122 4968
Now it’s time for Yana’s Insights.
When you travel in Israel, its a good idea to start paying attention to the bus numbers, street numbers, dates, hours and the local money- the shekel. Its the best practice to remember! You can start now if you are at your home town to practice Hebrew numbers in your daily life!
Do you know the Hebrew word for a hundred? In the next lesson we are going to learn the numbers from eleven to one hundred in Hebrew. Your task now is to practice the numbers we studied in this lesson, from ehad till eser!!
Lehitraot ve-ad ha-paam ha-baa!!

Hi Vicki,

Thank you for posting and sharing your questions ❤️️

As several series were written without Nikud, it seems that the Hebrew spelling is indeed missing from this lesson. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The ending 'esreh' is similar to '-teen' in "fourteen' - used for all numbers between 11 -19. Note that "asara" is the masculine form of the number 10.

We are be dealing with numbers and their different forms in several other lessons, I am sure it will be clearer once you continue your progress 😄

Please let us know, however, if you have any further questions - we're always happy to help 👍

Hi Monica,

Thanks for posting this question!

In Hebrew, all nouns have a gender, which is either feminine or masculine, both in the singular and in the plural forms (4 combinations in total). This topic is discussed advanced lessons... if you want to find more information about this, you can search for the word "masculine" of "feminine" and "nouns" in the search box and browse through the results in the different lessons...

Hope that helps :)

I'm confused... How do you know when something is feminine vs masculine? Is there lesson on this?

Hi Maksim,

Thanks for posting!

You're correct, the number "one" is written here in the masculine form, but this is not a mistake, but rather a common way to count in Hebrew... While all the other numbers are counted in the feminine form (when not counting masculine objects specifically) the number 1 is often said in the singular as well...

That said - there's nothing wrong with counting 1 as "akhat" (אחת), of course.

Please also check out our Hebrew Dictionary, which also shows the word gender:

I thought the female one was axat. It seems to me all of these are feminine numbers.

Hi Alfred Crane,

Thanks for commenting!

This phrase means "and until next time" (written in Hebrew "ועד הפעם הבאה").

Happy to assist, enjoy learning Hebrew!
