The following is what we are aiming at constructing for the free side of the site:
- Greetings, Questions, Confusion
- Learn how to ask simple wh-questions (“what?” “where?” “who?” “how much?”), how to tell someone that you don’t understand, that you speak only a little Hebrew, how to ask him to speak English. Learn to say you’re sorry and tell someone thanks.
- Numbers, Time and Appointments
- Learn to count to 100 and above. Use those numbers to express times and set appointments. Ask someone to meet you at a specific time and confirm the details.
- Going to a Restaurant
- Telling the host that you need a table for five. Learn to ask for a menu, to ask to speak to the manager, to tell them that the food was not very good – and request a refund!
- Clothes Shopping
- Learn the names of various garments and words you might use in a shop. Ask the attendant in the store to replace an item or bring it in a different size or color.
