Survival Phrases lesson 21 - Internet Café
In this lesson, we'll learn about a place crucial to your travels in this modern age, the Internet café! Normally, you find Internet cafés in the big main cities. However, if you are in a very small town, there is a possibility that you will not be able to find one.
Let's imagine you're at the reception desk and you need to ask how much the connection costs and for how long. Slicha, kama ze lesha'a? This literally means, "Excuse me, how much is it an hour?" Let’s break it down by syllable and hear it one more time, Slicha, kama ze lesha'a? This sentence is made up of Slicha and then Cama ze, which we have already seen in previous lessons, followed by Lesha'a. In this case, the word Sha'a, means, "hour," in English. Please note that attached to the word Sha'a, we need the articled preposition Le, which in English means, "to." Another way of asking this is to replace Le with the Hebrew word Achat, which in English means, "one." However, please note that in this case the word Achat will appear after the word Sha'a. Thus, we have Slicha, kama ze sha'a achat?
They will probably answer you with something such as the price of the connection per hourand then...Lesha'a.
This sentence is very easy to understand and it has the same meaning. In addition, the price (a number plus the word Shekalim) will always come first. Let's imagine for example that the clerk says, "5 Shekels per hour." Chamisha Shekalim lesha'a. Let’s break this words down and hear them one more time, Chamisha Shekalim lesha'a.
Ok, to close out today's lessons, we would like you to practice what you have just learned. I’ll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you’re responsible for shouting it out loud. You’ll have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so Behatzlacha! which means “Good luck!” in Hebrew.
“Excuse me, how much is it per hour?” - Slicha, kama ze lesha’a?
“Five Shekels per hour.” - Chamisha Shekalim lesha’a.
Jessi: Alright! That's going to do it for today. Remember to stop by HebrewPod101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment!

Hi Juliana Michelle,


Thank you for posting!

אני גולשת באינטרנט כל יום מלבד שבת

I changed "כל היום" ("all day") to "כל יום" ("every day").

Regarding your questions - you're right, חופש means holiday and can also mean freedom:

לבחורה יש חופש לדבר בכנס (the woman has the freedom to speak at the conference).

קוראים means "call" but can also mean "read":

אני אוהבת לקרוא את הספר הזה (I love to read this book).

Good observations!


Sincerely,

Yaara,
