I love they understand how hard it is to learn a semetic language as a romance/germanic language speaker, and they're just so encouraging.

And in Yiddish it changed to "Mazl tov". What happened to the Yiddish incubator by the way?

To whom it may concern: My translation reads as follows according to the practice sample: 《Good luck, you speak Ivrit. 》 Can't I say: "Good luck" instead of "congratulations"? Thank you for your co-operation.

I have read in another thread that although this phrase (mazal tov) literally translates to "good luck", it's a fixed expression for congratulating someone. And actual "good luck" is בהצלחה (be-hatslacháh)

That is right. In Hebrew, when they say "good luck", it means you already had good luck, whereas in English it is a wish that you will have good luck.

I think that in Hebrew, too, the original intention was future-looking. They say מזל טוב in weddings and child births etc., wishing you good luck in the future. Then, since it got attached to happy occasions, they started using it for happy occasions even if they only celebrate recent-past achievements.

This verb מדבר is funny in Arabic, "ana mdabber" means "I'll manage//get by" - i.e. "je vais me debrouiller" in French.

It' s written Ivrit. I translate עברית with Ivrit what is not wrong in comparison to Hebrew, or?

It is an accurate transliteration, but an inaccurate translation. Hebrew is the word you should put into your answer.
