Listeners, do you like to keep fit, or are you more of a couch potato type? Do you play tennis, go to the gym? Tell us about what you do to keep fit in Hebrew!

Shalom Roi, I understand some of the corrections.

My sentence about swimming. I didn't understand your comments. How would I write that sentence in Hebrew? I am trying to show in what order she swam in the pool and the lake. I wasn't implying a race. She did something first and then something second.

I don't understand why the present progressive of to run looks like the past- oh- my mistake-I think that maybe I was confusing "to want" with " to run" which ( to want) has the vav in present tense-I'll look it up in my verb book. yes, I see

Ahh- some spelling errors- yes and I'll look up swim again-it seemed irregular to me, but tense is very difficult. I did get some of the past tense. Thank you, Roi, I'll keep trying.

Hi Shelley,


Good work, let's go through all your sentences and comments -


First - general note - sometimes in Hebrew, verbs in the third body, male And female, are similar in present and past.

Such cases appear twice in your sample sentences, but it is not a rule and definitely not true for all cases.


1. כרגע אני רוקדת סטפס, עם זאת, נהגתי לעשות הרבה יוגה


2. "The woman is running on the beach" is properly translated... רצה is the past verb in this case, similar to the present verb in third body (he/she).


3. swim = לשחות/ שחייה, He swam = הוא שחה, I'm not sure I follow - where is the irregularity?


4.

A. to read = לקרוא (he read (past) הוא קרא)

B. :thumbsup:

C. tree = עץ

D. בבריכה הראשונה = "in the first pool" to describe swimming "first" in a competition in Hebrew we use "to finish" - לסיים". היא סיימה"

E. moves/moved = זז.


yours,

Roi

Hello Team, In the sentence" The woman is running on the beach" in the notes non-past tense and present progressive tense and in the expansion sentence, the word run is missing the vav which makes all sentences in the past tense.


The verb to swim seems to be an irregular conjugation in the past tense or follows a different rule, you may wish to explain this in the notes. It must have something to do with a root ending in "hay" Roi, would you clarify? Thank you.
