Introduction to the Hebrew Language: Hi and welcome to the lecture the Hebrew language. We'll talk about a bit of the history of the Hebrew language, some pronunciation notes and male and female related stuff. Now, if you want to just get to actually learning conversational Hebrew, then you can skip to the next section. Otherwise, here we go. Okay, so I've been about the history of Hebrew. So Hebrew is historically regarded as the language of the Israel Lights and their ancestors . The earliest examples of written in Hebrew date from the 10th century B C. Today he re spoken by total of 10 million people worldwide. He proceeds to being everyday spoke a language somewhere between 204 100 psi, and in the 19th century it was revived as a spoken and literary language and has become, as of 1998 the language of five million people worldwide. Today, I said it's about 10 million. The United States has the second largest haber speaking population, with over 1/4 1,000,000 fluent Tabor's bakers. Modern Hebrew is one of the two official languages of Israel, the other being modern standard Arabic, while pre modern Hebrew is used for prayer or study, in Jewish communities around the world today. The Torah, the pent attack, the 1st 5 books and most of the rest of the Hebrew Bible is written in biblical Hebrew, with much of its present form, specifically the dialect that scholars believe flourished around the sixth century BC around the time of the Babylonian captivity. For this reason, Hebrew has been referred to by the Jews as LaShawn Cordish, meaning the holy Tongue, by the way, modern Hebrew, pretty modern Hebrew and biblical Hebrew, their old very, very similar. For example, in Israel, you don't study all three languages. You just study Hebrew and by knowing Hebrew, then you can pretty much understand and raid in prayer books, the ones that were mentioned above and in the Bible. Okay, so hey, bru is written from right to left. There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet, and there are five final letters. The five final. It is our letters that when they come in the end of a wood, I read it differently. They're still pronounced the same, but they're just written differently if they come in the invalid. Hebrew has three verb tenses past, present and future and As a rule, every Hebrew word has a three letter route. It's called a shoe wish that creates a semantic relationship between words. Okay, just a few pronunciation notes in Hebrew. There are two letters that don't have an equivalent in English. What? The first letter is the letter yet again. Effect. So sometimes people write it just within H hit and sometimes with a C H, which is not to check, but it's hit. So in this course, all just right. The fete as in hate with an apostrophe. So whenever you see this hate with the apostrophe, that's the letter fit. Another letter it doesn't have an English equivalent is the Hebrew letter. Sadiq Sadiki, sometimes ridden T zed and sometimes just said it's pretty similar to the sound in the word pizza. So that's the Tadic pizza. So it will be reading here as T Z. So if you see these TZ, that's Hebrew Letter Sadiq and finally male and female. Now, unlike English, there a lot of forms of male and female, so in English. If you say I'm going somewhere that would be relevant for both male and female in Hebrew, it would be different you would be a neat hole. That would be a male thing I'm going or a neat hole if it that would be female Sam going now. Most words that are feminine end with a syllable Hey! Or with a letter. Tough. So as an example, Zoellick, which means to throw So Zoellick would be the male form, meaning a male is throwing. And Zoellick it would be the female form. So male will say unease. Aleck and a female will say needs a wicket, which finishes with a tough now singular words are made plural by adding a suffix whose form is determined by the gender of a singular form. Now the plural suffix added to masculine form is in. So if you take the words awake, so if it's a group of guys who were throwing something, then you would say ZOLL Kim with the addition of the I am of the at the end, that's for a masculine form. The plural suffix to a feminine form is what so singular form female singular form will be silicate and plural would be zero coat. So that's the addition of the art at the end. Okay, so in the next section, we're actually going to stop speaking Hebrew. See you soon 3. Meeting up With Friends: hi and welcome back. So by now you can already plan Trick Tell the time you know about directions and numbers. You know, some common verbs. What you like, what you dislike, How you What do you do where you're from and so on. So you know quite a lot by now. Now, let's talk about meeting up with friends so you don't get left behind. This video will actually start with speaking Sam Haber. Okay, So if you want to plan something and you want to ask someone what they want to do today what you would say is Ma Atta, what do you for? A male attack is for male. If you want to talk to a female than you would say that. So again Mata would say What do you want a sort to do home today? MMA Atta, Look there Le assault volume. What do you want to do today? Another variation. Let on at this time for a female land at Watsa. Left it. Where do you want to go, Lan? At Watsa left it. And if you want to ask someone out, say on a date or something, then you might say if shower has mean OTA Or if you're asking a guy out, then you would say Lemme Sadah, May I invite you out to a restaurant? If shall has mean top, Let Miss Adah. Okay, so now that we've got the planning set up, let's see where we can go. So a few common things if you come in places and in order to know where you should meet you would say a phony piggish. Where should we meet? A fortnight? Piggish. So a good place to meet is a buyer. And in Hebrew, bar is ball. So it's pretty easy. If you want to go to a restaurant, then you would say, Miss Adah, Miss Adah, do you want to go to a cafe? Then you would say baked coffee, the house of coffee baked coffee. You want to just go for a walk and you would say tune to you. If you're the party kind of person, then you would say Miss Ceiba, Messi, Ba. And if you want to just have a quiet night in your house, then you would say Ally a beta. So if you want about someone to your house, then you would say the question would be. Where should we meet? A funny piggish. Then you can say Bo, come alive. Abita to my house. Okay, now what would you respond? Do you want to go out? Maybe you don't. So these are different options. If you do want to go out, you would say better. Move on big. If so, either Betta Bac if meaning. Sure, I'd love to Or move on big if just the same but literally translates to Of course I'd love to. If you're happy to go out with someone and you want to say I will gladly go out with you then you would say a smart Let's it. The doctor is for female or top for male. A smart Let's it for male or female. And if you're trying to get out of something or if you're really not available then you can just say I'm sorry I'm not available or in Hebrew. If you're a male, you Then you would say meets the l and the law. Pan Louie Mr L. A. Neil openly. That's for a male. And for a female, you would say meets the air. It anillo ouya meets the air. It anillo Perea If you just don't feel like it And you have no problem in saying so then you could just say law limit tragically. Don't that again Low no meat Ha Shaklee toe the And if you want toe get a rain check Then you can just say July Bay Pat Um after it who lie? But I am a hell it. Okay, so now that you've responded and you want to schedule something so you could ask When should we meet? Which is Mukai, Nikpai, Gische? Or you can ask, when are you free? So I'm putting three options here. You female, you male and you plural. So Mattei act Julia Maday at Julia. That's female, Mattei. Atta Hanoi. That's male, Mattei. Atta penalty. And for plural is Mattei a TEM dream. Mattei attempt through him. So what are the different options tomorrow evening, Mahal back Negative, Maha. Meaning tomorrow, but of meaning. Evening Mahal, ev. Or maybe next week. Boesch Evora. Haba. Peshawar is weak about his next bishop of Oaxaca. If you want to be given specific time and location than you can say, Bashar, whatever time there, whatever location. So let's say I want to meet someone um, at 4 p.m. At the at a restaurant. So I would say Bhatia Alba about me said, uh, and if you're not sure you want to check, then you can just say a knee of book. And me if Doc Okay, so in this session, we learned what you need to know in order to have a good social life in Hebrew and season, all right? 4. OK, Let's Order Some Food: Okay, let's order. So you scheduled to go out somewhere? You arrived at the restaurant or the cafe or the bar, and you want to order. You want to get the bill? You want to sit down? You want to ask for some extra cutlery or another plate, So let's see how to do all this. Okay, So when you come in when you leave, there are a few different options, right? You want to sit down and get a menu in order to get the bill? You want to leave a tip? You want to call the waiter or the waitress? So most common stock for the for the sentences would be if shall be of Akasha. May I? Please. So if shall move Akasha of it. Which is why I played Sit down. Do you want a menu? You would say if Charlotte gave Akasha tough fleet Tough fate. Which means may I please get a menu? If Shalva Kasha lay has mean let has mean just to order you want the build And you'd say if shall be vodka Sha one if shall be like a shock fish born now a tip in Hebrew is de shell that's pretty formal, and no one uses it. Instead, they just say tip deep and a waiter or waitress is Mel tell or melts? Are it? Melts are or military? Eight. Okay, so now you sat down, you've got the menu and you want to order. But how do you say different names in Hebrew? Let's see. Okay, So for those of you like pizza, that's easy. Pizza Peter in past is also easy pastor, and steak is also easy. Steak and chips is also easy chips and bread is let him let him. If you want a burger, then you just say Bull girl. If you want some chicken, then you say off both. If you prefer the vegetarian or if you just feel like salad, then that's also pretty easy. It's select if you What else do we have here? A few when a classic Israeli breakfast. Usually Israelis eat eggs in the morning with some salad. Maybe some cheeses. So for an omelet, you would say, ha vita, how vita he fancies, um, pink cake or any cake. You would say yoga, yoga, the fruit. You would say, Hey, what? Pimlott? That's plural fruit Single would be putting so pretty or pay what and vegetables is year court. It's also plural. Single form would be your neck. If you like the cheese, then you would say Xena, Gravina toast is very had. It's toast, toast, and butter is same, uh, him. And if you're gonna order in Hebrew, you can forget about all the above and just order a horse, which is homos. Okay, Now what would you want? A drink. So if you like beer, then you would say, if shall be Russia. Do you prefer wine with your steak? And you can say, Job of Akasha yean ya in. If you want some kind of soda or pop, then you can just ask for musket Uga's my skin. Who? Guys, If you want something specific, well, you know, the brand name is a pretty international, so you could just ask for a specific brand name drink that you want, and they'll probably have. If you like whiskey, then it's pretty much the same. It's whiskey. Lemonade is Nemo. Nada Lima. Nada. If you want water than that's mine main. If you want to get a picture of anything, then you just ask for a Concannon Cancun and another favorite Israeli soft drink would be midst oppose him. Orange juice. Everyone loves the orange juice. Now, if you're eating or is sharing maybe a dish with someone and you need some extra cutlery so you might want to ask for another Onda.
