Survival Phrases lesson 57 - It's Tasty
In today’s lesson, we'll introduce you to a phrase you'll use countless times on your journey! For everyone out there who likes Israeli food, this word will ensure you keep getting more of it!
In Hebrew, "It's tasty" is Ze taim. Let’s break it down by syllable, Ze taim. Now, let’s hear it once again, Ze taim. The first word Ze means, "it." Next, we have Taim, which in English is "tasty." To recap here, we have Ze taim. Literally, this means, "It's tasty."
If you want to say that you really like something, then you can use this phrase. In Hebrew, "It's very tasty" is Ze meod taim. Let’s break it down by syllable, Ze meod taim. Now, let’s hear it once again, Ze meod taim. This phrase is essentially the same. There is just one additional word added. That word is Meod. This word is an adverb and literally means, "very." Let’s break it down by syllable, Meod. The meaning of the entire phrase would be "It's very tasty."
In the event that you don't like something, "It's not tasty" is Ze lo taim. Let’s break it down by syllable, Ze lo taim. Now, let’s hear it once again, Ze lo taim. The first word Ze means, "it." Let’s hear it one more time, Ze. Next, we have the word Lo, which means "no" in English. Last, we have the word Taim, which we already know means, "tasty." To build the negative form, you just need to add Lo at the middle of the phrase, and you will have Ze lo taim.
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.
“It's tasty.” - Ze taim.
“It's very tasty.” - Ze meod taim.
“It's not tasty.” - Ze lo taim.

Hi Shelley Lynn,


I put "hen" instead of "elu" because I thought you wanted to say something about candy in general (the English sentence said "candy is"), but you are absolutely right, "elu" means "these" and you can definitely use it in this sentence if you are talking about specific candy.

Keep up the good work :wink:

Thank you. Yaara -a lot of mistakes this time-I must remember that adjectives agree in gender and number. I see that you put chen in place of these. If I wanted to say" these" instead of" they" would you write it the same way? Tank you again.

Hi Shelley Lynn,


Thank you for posting!

Candy is very tasty but vegetables are more healthy.

.סוכריות הן טעימות מאוד, אבל ירקות בריאים יותר

Unfortunately, you are right :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
