Some herew tips - Hello to the hebrew-speakers
ma shlomchem? (How are you) pl.

I find with a lot of people who are learning Ivrit, that quite often they place the stress of the word on the wrong syllable.
so therefore heres a short list of a few basic terms and the correct pronounciations:

1) shaLOM - hello
2) ma shloMECH - how are you (f)
3) ma shlomCHA - how are u (m)
4) beSEDER toDA - fine, thank you
5) ma hashaAH- whats the time?
6) bat KAma at? - how old are you (f)---->(aTA = m)
7) koRIM lee... - my name is....
8) aNI gar beh - i live in.. (m) ----> (gaRA =f)
9) EYfo at GAra? - where do u live (f)
10)ma hamaTZAV - whats up (both m+f)
11)ma koREH- whats up (very informal)
12)haKOL tov - its all good.

Anyway i hope these basic phrases help in some way.
feel free to e-amil me with queries about hebrew
