Recording myself in Hebrew

Postby Hakan D » 2010-12-29, 21:50

Hello dear all,

I've recently taken on to study modern Hebrew. I started around 20 days ago and have studied approximately 1 hour each day since then. I made a recording of myself speaking a bit about myself and how I got interested in languages. You could hear it at the link below:

Any helps, tips, corrections in grammar, rephrasing of a sentence and comments on my accent in Hebrew are well-appreciated.

i am truly impressed, your recording is very very good. your pronunciation is quite precise and i think that with time you might lose your accent alltogether. so here are some corrections of mostly slightly wrong pronunciation and stress in words, but your entire recording was very comprehensible and made a lot of sense.

i will capitalize the vowels that are stressed in words.

00:08- you said “asit” for “i did” but it should be “asIti”
00:14- “sech hakol” should be pronounced “sach hakol”
00:36- etzemi (myself) =atzmI
00:44- safa ha'acherot- safa is the singular, the plural for “languages” is “safot”, so “safot acherot”
00:51- turkIya=turkYA, we stress the last syllable
00:56- nodalti=nolAdeti
01:02- hArbe= harbE
01:10- hayanu (we were) =haYInu- another word :“veled” for “child” is actually “yEled”
01:18- germani(germany)/=germanYA
01:22- we met in the summers- nifgAshnu bakaYItz/ we dont really use the plural here, “lechen” is pronounced lachEn (therefore)
01:39 arabit=aravit
01:47- me'az hayiti veled=me'az she'hayiti yeled
01:49- islandI=Island (pronounced as in icelandic)
01:52- avrAti (moved)= avArti
01:55- asAr shanim (ten years)=Eser shanim
02:02- sentence: siyamti et limuDAY be'handaSAT mechonot (instead of limudI/handEsEt)
02:24- rikod (dance)= rikUd


overall- amazing job! and if this was all off the top of your head, i think you will definitely be quite fluent after 200 hours!!! very impressive, good luck.
^^lol^^

I agree with Siegel. Keep it up and you'll be speaking with a perfectly native accent. A lot of Hebrew learners tend to slip up with their vowels, making them a lot less 'clear' than they should be in Hebrew. I don't know if it's because your native language is Turkish, but your vowels sound perfectly Israeli and I find that pretty impressive. Your intonation is a little off sometimes but otherwise I'd guess you were Eastern European (something about a couple of your consonants) and had been living in Israel for some time. Your grammar is damn good, too.

Shouldn't it be TURkiya and gerMANya in these cases?
