Yesterday I had some great conversations for two and half hours in Hebrew, mostly with a Lexicarry book but also on books and movies- I spoke barely a word of English but my friend sometimes did and sometimes I asked what a word in Hebrew was by referring to the English translation. Part of me feels rather good I discussed books and movies we had been watching in Hebrew, another part of me feels frustrated that I could understand and say so little. I guess practice makes perfect, as they say.

I’ve planned another couple hours of conversation practice tomorrow, but finding people today to talk with will be harder. It’s Shabbat, and almost all buses, stores or cafes are close.
