Math and Present Tense in Hebrew… is there a connection between them???

How about if I tell you that Math is a language… Have you ever thought about that. Human beings after trying to discover and understand the world, figure out that they needed a language to do so and they saw this potential in numbers and Math. The first thing that Hebrew and Math have in common, they both are languages.

Math tries to explain and figure out the reality and our world by observing the environment. One of the outcomes of this, is that the mathematicians, philosophers and scientists, through observation, understood that the natural world works through rules and laws so they needed to translate that into numbers and… voila! The logic of Math was developed and the formulas to achieve a rule or a law was fulfilled.  So second thing here, Hebrew tends to have rules, laws and most important formulas. So if you understand, practice and apply these formulas, most of the things that mastering a language needs, you will be able to do.

So, after all these interesting (or maybe not so much… sorry I’m a nerd ) information, I leave here a presentation where you can find the basic laws and formulas to conjugate a verb into the Present Tense.



Basic grammars in Hebrew/Resource

Hello to everyone!

Being a native Spanish speaker  made me realize about some of the challenges that native English speakers can have when learning Hebrew (grammatically speaking, Spanish is more close to Hebrew than English).

Because of that, I want to leave here some cues and resources to your use. Click on the link!

I am very excited to meet you and be your Hebrew teacher. Although we meet through the screen, it does not reduce the excitement and anticipation of meeting you. I’m still in Israel … so, Teacher Tal will replace me until I get to Canada. I’m sure we’ll have a great year of experiential learning and a lot of fun. Wishing you and your families a happy, productive and especially healthy New Year.

Lehitraot my beloved grade 8 class

The year has come to an end and like every year, it is always hard to say goodbye.  It is especially hard to say goodbye after teaching an amazing group of students for so many years. In Hebrew we say “Lehitraot ve Lehishtamea” which means “we will see each other and hear from you” , I hope that this is a Lehitraot and Lehishtamea and that you will keep in touch and come visit us.

I am adding a list of excellent resources for you so you can continue to keep your  Hebrew skills fresh in the future.
