The Big Felafel

So you think you know Hebrew, watch this


After ulpan, the real Hebrew proficiency exam should entail watching funny TV shows like Hayisraelim and Ktzarim and seeing if you laugh at all the right places. No scantrons. No multiple choice. Just laughs. You can practice for this non-existent exam by checking out the Reshet Video Machine. This all-powerful video machine has many many Hebrew TV shows to choose from and loads incredibly fast. The best part – if you don’t get the jokes the first time around, you can watch an episode over and over and over again, and no one will know.

A little explanation about HaYisraelim. The show is composed of 5 or 6 skits that appear in every episode, but with a new twist. My favorite ones are the skits with the prime minister, the arsim in the mall, the worker who talks trash about her coworkers, the felafel stand, the couple with the baby, and the psychologist. The show has 3 main guys who play a variety of roles. I like to figure out which one is which character, but they are so good it’s hard to keep track.

If you come across more funny shows on the video machine, please share.

(Thanks Miriam for telling me about the site)
