Survival Phrases lesson 4 - Basic Hebrew Greetings
Today, we'll cover basic greetings for the appropriate time of the day. As there are quite a few to cover, let's jump right in.
In Hebrew, we can use the phrase Shalom as a universal greeting. We use it both when greeting and when parting. Let’s say it slowly now, Shalom. Let’s break it down in syllable, Shalom. Now, let’s hear it once again, Shalom.
In Hebrew, "Good Morning" is Boker tov. Let’s break it down by syllable, Boker tov. Now, let’s hear it once again, Boker tov. The first word, Boker means "morning." Let’s say that word slowly now, Boker. Tov, which in Hebrew is "good," follows this. Boker tov.
In Hebrew, "Good afternoon" is tzahoraim tovim. Let’s break it down by syllable, tzahoraim tovim. Now, let’s hear it once again, tzahoraim tovim. The first word Tzohoraim means, "afternoon." Let’s break it down this word and hear it one more time, Tzohoraim. Tovim follows this, which in Hebrew is "good."
Finally, in Hebrew "good evening" is Erev tov. Let’s break it down by syllable, Erev tov. The first word Erev means, "evening." Let’s break it down this word and hear it one more time, Erev. Tov follows this, which in Hebrew is "good."
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.
“Hello and Goodbye.” - Shalom.
“Good morning.” - Boker tov.
“Good afternoon.” - Tzohoraim tovim.
“Good evening.” - Erev tov.
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!
