Posted by The Jerusalem Report on Tuesday, March 25, 2019 07:30:56When I was four years old, I left my family’s home in Tel Aviv and walked from my parents’ house to the university campus in Jerusalem.
As I walked, I had a strange feeling that my parents would come back to the house to meet me.
I thought I would be the last one to arrive at their home, because my parents were very active on social media and I had never seen them before.
As I walked towards my parents’, I thought to myself, “they are going to meet their children.
I want to see them.”
As I approached their home on the street, I was shocked to see a group of young women waiting for me.
They stopped me from entering the house, and I looked at my parents and they said, “What are you doing?”
My parents were shocked.
I asked them, “Are you going to come and see us?”
They said, yes, and that is when they started laughing.
I don’t know if they thought I was a crazy child, but they were right.
I was living in a different world, and they told me I had to learn Hebrew.
I didn’t know how to read Hebrew, but I was learning.
I wanted to learn.
When I reached the university, I began to learn Arabic and Arabic fluency, and at the time, I wasn’t doing well with both.
I didn’t understand why my parents told me, “Do you want to learn?”
I just wanted to get a job and learn English.
As an undergraduate student, I started to study French, Italian, German, Russian, and Spanish.
I knew it would be a long road.
It wasn’t until I got into graduate school that I started studying Hebrew.
But I still didn’t speak Hebrew, so I tried to find a way to translate texts in Hebrew into English.
I learned Hebrew, and now, I speak it fluently and I read it on the subway, in the supermarket, at the airport, and in the park.
I’m trying to teach myself English, and as a result, I have become a better person, too.
I think it’s important for students like me to get exposed to new ways of learning, especially when we live in a place where there are a lot of restrictions.
It is a matter of education and it is a way of life.
You have to be open to new ideas and new ways to learn, and if you can’t, you should consider changing your career, because there is no money in Hebrew, no opportunity to learn it.
It’s a difficult thing to change your life, but learning Hebrew is part of life and there are lots of opportunities.
You can’t just leave it at home, so learning Hebrew has become a way that I have to explore.
