Survival Phrases lesson 26 - Riding The Rails 2
In the previous lesson, we covered how to get on the train. Riding the rails is one of the best ways to enjoy your trip and visit as many places as possible, not only at the local level, but for long distance destinations! In fact, traveling by train can be one more way to see all the wonderful things Israel can offer!
You have to ask for tickets for the Rakevet "train" at the ticket office and we can accomplish this by asking, Kartis echad le... and then your destination.
Now of course, we need a destination. So let's use the wonderful city Jerusalem. So how do you ask for a ticket to Jerusalem?
"One ticket to Jerusalem" in Hebrew is Kartis echad leyerushalaim. Let’s break it down by syllable, Kartis echad leyerushalaim. Let’s hear it one more time, Kartis echad leyerushalaim. This sentence is made up of Kartis "ticket," followed by Echad "one," and the preposition "for," which in Hebrew is Le, attached to the name of the destination, Yerushalaim. Let’s break down this wordsand hear the whole sentence one more time, Kartis echad leyerushalaim.
Now, what if you wanted to know how much the ticket was before buying it? "How much is a ticket to Jerusalem?" in Hebrew is Kama ole kartis echad leyerushalaim?
This sentence is so easy and you know the structure thanks to the previous lessons. In fact, we have Kama ole "how much," followed by kartis echad leyerushalaim "a ticket to Jerusalem." Let’s break down this words and hear the entire sentence one more, Kama ole kartis echad leyerushalaim?
Let's now imagine that you are not traveling on your own, but with someone else, so you need to ask for two or more tickets. "Two tickets to Jerusalem please," in Hebrew is Shnei kartisim leyerushalaim. As you can see, it's very easy to understand. In place of Kartis echad "one ticket," you have the number Shnei "two," and then the plural noun Kartisim "tickets." Let’s break down this words and hear the whole sentence, Shnei kartisim leyerushalaim.
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.
“One ticket to Jerusalem.” - Kartis echad leyerushalaim.
“How much is a ticket to Jerusalem?” - Kama ole kartis echad leyerushalaim?
“Two tickets to Jerusalem.” - Shnei kartisim leyerushalaim.
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!

Shalom Shelley Lynn,


Thank you for posting and for pointing out this issue.

We"ll look into it.

I will want to buy a ticket for the train when I will be in Israel. =

אני ארצה לקנות כרטיס לרכבת כשאהיה בארץ


...כש = when

אהיה = I will be (future tense first person conjugated form of the verb להיות - to be)


Happy Hebrew learning,


Lenny
