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. The Four Seasons: Hi and welcome back. This section will talk about the weather so you can always make small talk and we'll start with the Four Seasons. Okay, So what are the four seasons we have? Starting from the left Spring, summer, autumn and winter. So spring in Hebrew is called Aviv. I have Eve summaries called kites. Repeat after me kites. Stuff is autumn Sorry. You know that autumn in Hebrew is stuff stuff and winter is whole If ho if Okay, so let's let's quickly revise. So we have Summer is kites. Winter is hall. If summer is kites spring, His Viv quote him is stuff winter is Oh, if spring is Viv Okay, great. Now let's zoom in into the different seasons. So a few common words for every season starting with Aviv. So we have a flower which is called path. And on the left of it, we have a grass but actually meant to God in the garden is Geena in Heber, Geena. And in the spring we know how the flowers bloom and blossom. So that's cold, Lisa. And as you can see again, we have Pere and Lisa which have the same route. Hey, Ray, shed path, which is Pere Erica. So pretty size to bloom to blossom and better fly, which is help our power power. So we have again. Peppa is you tell May Flower. Geena is That's right. It got it. Police, huh? Is the blooming of the flowers and butterfly is about about Okay next season. Summer. So everyone likes to go to the beach in the summer. In Hebrew, That is yum. So if you have a beach, you probably go there. Exam A If it's a nice beach in Israel, there quite a few nice speeches. So it's called Yum yum. Now the sun is called shame ish, Shame ish. Now you gotta be, son safe. So you always gonna take a hat review? And that would be a core va cova. And if you're all set wearing your hat wearing your cova at the young, what would you like to eat? Some Guida. Some ice cream. So that's ugly. Believe that. Okay, So quick test without looking directly at the words that you can just make it out. Cova hat. Janish, son. Yeah. Um, Beach. Guida ice cream. Okay. Lets me one autumn. So in the order, Um we have a lot of leaves, so relief is called away. I let now I want to clean up all the leaves that fall on the ground, so to do, to use the right to do that you'd use a Maghreb mag. So that's a rank and, well, a rainbow. It can actually appear depending on where you live in the world, but it appears from the combination of rain and sun, which sometimes happens in the autumn. So a rainbow is a cash it cash it. It's a rainbow. Cash it. And another word for autumn is full and in Hebrew full is called shall if it Charl f it. Okay, so I'll say the word in Hebrew. And let's see if you can quickly make it out what it is without looking directly at the words. So what's on? I let Ali That's a leaf. What is a cash? It? That's a rainbow. What is a McGary f? It's a rake and what is shallow Yet? She left it. That's full. Okay, last season, winter. So I personally love winter. The summer in Israel is just too hot, so I like it when it's raining and cold. Okay, So let's that from the left this time that is rain. And in Hebrew rain is Gatien Gessen. And if it snows which are rarely does in Israel, maybe one day a year and only in very specific locations, like in Jerusalem and fact, maybe some other places. But it's only for like a day. So snow is shelling, shelling There's a storm in his lightning lightning is called back back and the word Barack also means shiny. So if you say about something that it has black means that it shines. And finally clouds clouds are on a name on my name. Single cloud would be a nun. You could already identify the plural I am at the end of the world. Right? So that's a nanny. Okay, quick or vision? Gessen. Okay, right. Good job on the name. Glad shelling. Shelling snow. Guess him. Rain got you there. You are expecting the last one, which is back Lightning. Okay, great. Well done. So those were the Four Seasons and the next video. We'll learn how to talk about the weather because we all love doing that. See you then 4. Seasons flashcard: Hi and welcome back to the Seasons Flashcards Video. It will practice the names of the different seasons and the season related vocabulary package. So let's go autumn stuff stuff sama, Kites, kites Spring Aviv, Viv Winter whole If ho if son Shame ish Shame Ish Beach yum, young hat Cova clover I screen Yum the leader leader A rake Magarri for mag Refah Rainbow Cash it cash it leaf I let I let full shall if it shall if it grass or a guide in Because it looks like both So grass is dish it And a garden is Geena So it's Desa and the Geena Flower Peta Yeah, blossoming are blooming Lisa policia Better fly Powell Powell How power Rain Gatien gets him Snow shell egg shelling Lightning Bad luck Black Last one clouds on the name on that name. Good job. If you didn't get all of them then watch the video again that by 5. Talking About the Weather: Hi. Welcome back in this video. We're gonna talk about the weather. We're gonna learn to relevant words and practice some Hebrew speaking. So let's take a look. Okay, let's start with some common phrases and words. So obviously we're talking about the weather. The most common question is what is the weather like? Has the weather So in Heber, you would say, if Hamas egg a ville, if that's what Hamas egg a view, What is the weather like? And then possible ends is. Are your edition training you read? Gets him for now? The possible answer. Your red shell leg. It's knowing your red shell leg. Now. If you want to say that tomorrow will be whatever, then you would say how safe we put, huh? Tomorrow Savoy. It's predicted that he ought to be. So it's Maha. It's a fool, he wrote. Then you can complete that with hum, which is hot, um, or cold cow cow. Or you could say freezing, which is cuff full Kefu. Or, if it's humid, why could sometimes is in the Israeli summer? Then you can say LA is humid. Okay, let's practice. Let's do some talking and again this will be only the Hebrew and then old show the translation. So this is a conversation between two people. MMA, Hamas. Ig a Ville Sheva Haba Answer. Call big. Assume your fee and you'll have guessed him being met a knee or have sham ish give shall allegedly, um, Villa hitched as if une metal liam avail any law or have shame ish again if she only auto battle. Okay, so this was a conversation between two people talking about the weather. So let's see what we had here. Mahama Zinc Avila Shove Wahba What is the weather like next week? Answer was cull vigor. Schum cow is cold and assume is rainy. So apparently he's person lacks range because he says your fee great on the or have a vision.

Kiev shall left it, Liam, because you can go to the beach villa hitched as if and sandbag, of course. Une metal Liam. I'm crazy about the beach. Remember the phrase Met Al Ayam? It's slang.
