It'd really, really help with learning the language if more of the sentences/prompts had audios, because it helps put the vocab to memory. I'm way more likely to remember the word for soup and how to pronounce it than the word for beer (which I've already forgotten), simply because the prompt for soup has audio and the prompt for beer does not.
Thanks to a hint from dieprinzessin I am now using this website for listening to the correct pronunciation: http://de.forvo.com/search/%D7%91%D7%99%D7%A8%D7%94/
Even though in Hebrew you do literally say you drink soup the correct english translation would be I eat soup.
I hear this as "aNI shoTEM aRAK." Is this how Israelis typically say this sentence? Is there a rule that explains this? thanks :)
Israelis generally say this sentence, correctly, as it is written: "aNI shoTE maRAK". However, as with all languages, when speaking quickly words sometimes run together, and it might sound the way you wrote it.
"I'm having a soup", althoug it isn't the literal translation, should be accepted as well.
Im a sfaradic jew and i speaks hebrew, in my house we used to say in Hebrew i drink soup. and now im married to someone who doesn't speak Hebrew and when i asked him if he wants to drink soup he corrected me to eat soup.
