  5. "Yes, this is fun."

"Yes, this is fun."

Translation:כן, זה כיף.

Would it also be proper to say כן, יש כיף


No, that would mean: "yes, there is fun" (which sounds a bit weird I think)


I feel like people would probably be more likely to say, כן, איזה כיף.


how do you pronounce כיף


With nikkud it is spelled "כֱיף". I was taught that that was the "long a" sound like the "a" in "hate" or "bait": kaif (kef for European speakers). But, every recording I've listened to, including here, pronounces it "eh" like the "short e" in "bed" or "wed": kef/kehf, for English speakers. Forvo.com for Hebrew is a good site to hear pronunciation by native speakers, as is this Duolingo site.

Memrise.com, as PandoraaFoxx said, has a Duolingo Hebrew course written by Mazzorano, one of the creators of this course, that works on the pronunciation of all the words in this class.


כן זה כיף.


כן זאת כיף is this wrongbecause fun is masculine?g
