Quicker way to switch between English and Hebrew Keyboard

Is there some kind of button combination on the keyboard that I can use to switch between English and Hebrew faster? Because having to manually select English or Hebrew with my mouse ruins the flow of the lesson. Thank you.

If you have a hebrew keyboard installed, press Shift+Alt

in addition - to change writing direction: ctrl + shift

On Mac, I configured "caps lock" to toggle between languages via keyboard settings.

Are you asking about the computer keyboard or the phone?

Are you on Windows?

For Mac I created a "Watch me do" workflow in Automator to select the menu item and then assigned a keyboard short cut.
