Survival Phrases lesson 46 - How Do You Eat This?
In Israel, there are many delicious dishes! We've already covered how to order them, but now how to eat them! However, that is not always so straightforward. In this lesson, we'll learn how to ask, "How do you eat this?"
In Hebrew, "How do you eat this?" is Hech ochlim et ze? Let’s break it down by syllable, Hech ochlim et ze? Now, let’s hear it once again, Hech ochlim et ze? The first word Hech means, "how." Let’s hear it one more time, Hech. Then you have Ochlim, which means, "eats." To recap here, we have Hech ochlim. Literally, this means, "How is it eaten." Let's look at the next words Et ze, which means, "this." All together, we have Hech ochlim et ze? Literally, this means, "How is this eaten?"
Finally, we will talk about something that may come in handy for everyone who doesn't like hot things. Israeli cuisine is not known for being spicy, but if you are visiting some areas, you will probably find some typical spicy dishes. The question "Is this hot?" in Hebrew is Ze charif? The first word Ze means, "is this." let’s hear it one more time, Ze. Next, we have Charif, which in English is "hot, spicy." All together, we have Ze charif? Literally, this means, "Is it spicy?"
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.
“How do you eat this?” - Hech ochlim et ze?
“Is this hot?” - Ze charif?
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 Yitzchak,


Thanks for posting!


Very well written! and very true - some restaurants are known for their super fiery schug... One must be careful... 😅😅

I like spicy food, but not very spicy. I have to be careful with the schug!

Hi Tom,


Thanks for commenting on this!


You are correct, 'Eikh' would be the correct romantization here. I'm forwarding it.


Thanks again for helping us improve and keep enjoying to learn Hebrew with us!


Yours,

Hech should be Ech throughout, as the H is not pronounced.

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Thank you for posting.

How do you eat this? Is this Spicy? I like spicy food, but not too spicy.

.אני אוהבת אוכל חריף, אבל לא חריף מדי

?איך אוכלים את זה? זה חריף


Great job! my only change: the word "מדי" is an adverb, and it should come after the word it describes.

Keep up the good work!


Sincerely,

Yaara
