Today's lesson was all about geography. What sort of area do you live in? Are there lots of mountains, or is it near the ocean? Please tell us about it!

Editors, the hebrew expansion sentence under the vocabulary for rain forest is missing the final Hebrew word that is in the audio. Please insert. Thanks.


When the snow melts on the mountain, the cold water flows into the river below.

כאשר השלג נמוס על ההר, המים הקרים זורמים לתוך הנהר למטה


The algae on the lake's rocky bottom made the footing slippery.

האצות על קרקעית האגם הסלעית גרמו לרגלים חלקלקות

Hi Shelley Lynn,


The infinitive form of "to get in" is להיכנס - le'hikanes.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you, Yaara. Everything is clear now. I'd love to see the infinitive in Hebrew for" to get inside"

Hi Shelley Lynn,


I am glad I could help :smile: And just to make the explanation a bit more clear: the word ביקור (bikur) means "a visit", whereas the word לבקר (levaker) is a verb - "to visit".

About the swimming sentence - I used the verb Nichnasti (infinitive form: Lehikanes), that means "to go/get in/inside", as in "to get in the car", "to go into the box" etc. In the swimming sentence it means I went IN the water. you can use the verb "to go", but the sentence will be less accurate:

“I took my clothes off and went swimming in the lake”

הורדתי את בגדיי והלכתי לשחות במי האגם - this means something like "I took my clothes off and went to swim in the lake" - it is a bit weird since it implies I took my clothes off and only then went to the lake. You can fix it by saying:

הלכתי לאגם, הורדתי את בגדיי ונכנסתי לשחות - I went to the lake, took my clothes off and got in to swim.

I hope this was helpful.


Sincerely,

Yaara

Thank you, Yaara. I didn't know the difference that the yud makes in the word " "Visit." Can you also substitute the verb, chalach," to go", for the current verb you used for went in the swimming sentence? What is the infinitive of the verb you used, nichnoseti.?

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Thank you for posting.

"I took my clothes off and went swimming in the lake"

הורדתי את בגדיי ונכנסתי לשחות במי האגם

במי האגם = in the water of the lake. במי is ב (in) and מי, which is a form of the word water (מים) and means "water of". You can also just say באגם - in the lake.

These pictures are lovely. I would love to visit there - אלה תמונות חביבות. אשמח לבקר שם

I changed לביקור (to a visit) to לבקר (to visit).

Please let me know if you have any more questions!

Hello team, in the notes and expansion-in the last sentence-I took my clothes off and went swimming in the lake. Would you please explain the use of the word " bmi" before the word " lake." Thank you.
