Tel Aviv BeachIsn’t it great to play hooky from work every now and then!  In Israel, all along the Mediterranean coast, there’s no better place to do that than at the beach--the warm sand, the cool waves, playing matkot, eating artikim . . . even surfing!

During Lesson 19, Liat tells us such a colorful story about her day at the beach yesterday, it’s almost as if we were there with her.  rak shniya--just a Paddleballsecond!  This story happened yesterday.  Doesn’t that mean we need a different verb tense?  bediyuk--exactly!  Until now, we have been studying Hebrew verbs in the present tense.  Learn Hebrew Pod shiur mispar tsha-esre gives us our first look at the past tense. 

And, of course, we’ll learn the Hebrew words for such wonderful things as taking a day of from work, swimming in the sea, resting on the sand . . . The perfect lesson to listen to while relaxing on the beach!

Come to think of it, it’s gotten a little quiet around here.  Hey . . . Eran?  Liat?  Jonathan?  Where did everybody go? 
le-chof ha-yam, kamuvan!!  Smile
