Fun and informative

Guy does a wonderful job packing each ten minute episode with lots of information about a specific theme in Hebrew, whether the various forms of a given root or a topic like ordering at a restaurant. What sets this podcast apart is the use of cultural examples for the Hebrew, such as using Israeli songs and politics. What other podcast teaches you the correct intonation to use when speaking Hebrew? Which is important because that is how many intentions are expressed such as politeness. I listened to all of the episodes (over 45 hours of content) in a few months time, and over all of them I got a little sense of Guy’s life changes in those years. I like his taste in music, and was not surprised to learn he worked at כאן קול המוסיקה for a time. I much appreciate the work and learned a lot. Maybe in time I will go back to review the material, as it is hard to remember much in each episode since it is so full of material rather than mindless repetition. Which makes it fun with all of the real life quotes! You definitely should check out this podcast and get a taste of real Hebrew on the streets of Israel!

Outstanding . avoids the drudgery of language learning . Very nice combination of music culture and language . Feels like a close friend is telling you the inside scoop about his beloved mother tongue .

Super

What an original way to get “digestible tasty bites” of a language. Guy is so personable and has a sweet sense of humor. His language skills are great. Highly recommended.
