My childhood turtle actually ate challah.

What is that?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luke_5.1991

It's a loaf of white leavened bread, typically plaited in form, traditionally baked to celebrate the Jewish sabbath.

אני אוהב צבים

What is wrong with הלחם אוכל את הצב ?

In case you asked seriously, the English for that would be "The bread eats the turtle".

It's not good for him.

When is צב used, versus צבה?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/YardenNB

If we're talking about a female turtle, and informally (eg common people talking about their pet turtle), it can be צבה. If it's biologists talking, I think they'll usually say "נקבת צב היבשה המצוי" or something.

Hi off topic but has anyone ever competed in Duolingo with someone else that is studying Hebrew.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MorlandLaura

No, but I wish that people in whatever League we're in would be doing Hebrew, and not some random language. It would encourage reaching out to form "friendships."

And your suggestion might help with motivation....

I used 'tortoise' instead of 'turtle' and was marked incorrect. However my Hebrew-English dictionary says 'tortoise'.
