Toda raba! My mother’s family speaks Hebrew and I was raised speaking with them partly in the language. My Hebrew is very basic and conversational, so this adds a dimension of grammar and expands my vocabulary. Thank you!

Great culture connection

A standout among language learning apps/podcasts. This show is so well thought out and put together to efficiently provide a fun blend of Hebrew language instruction and tid-bits about Israeli culture/politics. The format and vocabulary is flexible so that it is doable for beginners. I can hear Guy's love for language and teaching. Great job!

This podcast is simply fantastic. It’s a great way to learn some Hebrew - not just the formal language from books or school, but the way Israelis speak in modern Israel.

I love this podcast. In my car, it’s as if Guy is teaching/tutoring me personally! I’ve learned so much about Israel and linguistics and - of course - HEBREW. He provides just the right amount of stuff at my level as well as tantalizing content to help me stretch my Hebrew skills as well. I’m a full-time student or I would happily donate! I also love the Israeli music! Love it!

I lived in Jerusalem a LONG time ago and have fairly recently wanted to refresh and improve my spoken Hebrew. Guy does a great job of teaching and each lesson is relevant. My only small gripe? I know it must take a lot of effort to produce, but I would love longer segments. תן לי עוד!

תודה רבה!

I started listening to Streetwise Hebrew while exercising, and enjoyed it so much that I ended up exercising more!!! Each episode is organized in a really intuitive way, designed to help listeners learn practical Hebrew phrases and use them in everyday life. Each episode focuses on an interesting topic and integrates musical, cultural, and historical references in an entertaining and memorable way! They are each short enough to easily fit into daily life and are fun to listen to for a quick dose of Hebrew anytime. Kol HaKavod!

I love this podcast!!! I learn so many phrases that one cannot find in an ordinary dictionary, and great musical clips as well.


by Vp124 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Simply stellar! Exactly what I’ve been looking for and couldn’t find anywhere. I love the deconstructing of the word in focus, its multiple permutations, spoken language examples, grammar discourses, translation of the song lyrics, even connections to Arabic and Yiddish. Love the dual language episodes. Just brilliant!

Rating: ★★★★★

A great resource for conversational Hebrew. As someone who's always felt like he's in recovery from years of Hebrew School himself, this podcast has been great at helping me sound less like the textbooks that I studied as a child, and more like a normal person when I'm conversing. Guy makes each quick lesson fun and educational all at the same time.

Loving this ... And learning a lot

These short podcasts provide a terrific insight into modern Hebrew usage and Israeli culture. The “lessons” are enhanced with enjoyable audio clips of songs, radio and TV.


by Beth Kruvant on
Rating: ★★★★★

If you want to learn hebrew in a creative and enjoyable way, this is the answer. Instead of drilling verbs and vocabulary one can absorb the language as if one is living in Israel. Guy teaches the language with intelligence and precision while evincing the latest Israeli cultural experience and phenomenon. A must f or Hebrew Lovers!


by Nachosmama on
Rating: ★★★★★

The podcast of my dreams. I was looking for a podcast to help improve my Hebrew. The host, Guy Sharett, is a passionate linguist, knowledgeable social and cultural historian and vastly curious. Through this podcast I have reconnected with Hebrew, learned meanings of words in various contexts, learned slang expressions, listened to songs I hadn’t heard in years and have been introduced to new songs and videos. I recommend to anyone interested in Hebrew and Israeli culture.

Entertaining and useful

Fun way to learn some new Hebrew or review. Clear and entertaining explanations of expressions and phrases, stemming from a root. I also love the use of music in this podcast as examples of the expressions; turns me on to some great music I haven’t heard before.

What a fun way to deepen my familiarity with Hebrew and Israeli life. Guy is a great teacher and the material is חבל על הזמן! Also his tour in TA is awesome too!

Exactly what I’ve been looking for

by ZookyC on
Rating: ★★★★★

Streetwise Hebrew is something of a dream come true for me. I’ve been an intermediate, advanced-intermediate student of Hebrew for a few years now, and I’ve studied it at a high level in an academic context, but I can rarely find anything that touches on all aspects of my love for the language - both the technical aspects of grammar and philology, and the socio-linguistics and “Street” nature of the language as a living, breathing phenomenon. That is, until now. This podcast is perfect for me. Guy: keep up the amazing work!!!

Love this podcast!

Rating: ★★★★★

Guy introduces you to aspects of Israeli culture that are hard to penetrate without a deep understanding of the language. And he does it in a completely accessible way that improves your Hebrew. Some knowledge of very basic Hebrew is useful to get the most out of this podcast, but really anybody would enjoy it. I love this podcast!
