Learn Yiddish online with Millie Garfield's free video blog lessons.
absolutely wonderful.Happy New Year Millie, Steve and Carol..how do you say Chili in Yiddish?We need an explanation of show biz terms in Yiddish for LateNiteMash.
oy, how i love the internet and millie garfield!
What a wonderful dialogue. I was smiling and laughing through the entire lesson. Zayre Gut, Steve, Carol and Millie!!! Zy Guzunt
I love it!I also love knishes!!!
Mazel Tov!!! Love it!
This is a great idea for many reasons. Connection between generations, teaching a language that seems to be disppearing and also bridging a cultural divide. I thought of doing this type of thing with my father-in-law but didn't. Thanks for picking up the dropped ball, Steve and Millie!
ich lib essen knishes
Thank you Millie for your class. I have subscribed. I want a knish now. :) Have a great day Millie.
Priceless! Carol trying to speak yiddish is adorable. beth g
Oh gosh, Millie....you're too much...lolLoved it! But think I'll pass on learning Yiddish. (practicing my French for Paris...so mustn't get confused...lol)
DanYou ask a tough question -The closest I can come to telling you how to say chili in Yiddish is rossel flaysh - that's a dish made with beans and meat, not as spicey as chili -Another challenge - Latenite mash -" Lavouna mishmush" Lavouna in Yiddish is Moon and mishmush - means lots of different things.Have fun trying to say those words. Now I have given you a challenge!SteveI listened to the ipod you did with Zadi and Steve, thanks for all the good words.Oy boy, do you sound good. MarcA shanen diynk! You'll be able to figure out what I am trying to say.Bre and BethI love knishes too.CarlI can see that is going to be a fun experience and very rewarding for all who participate.ShalomMichael, Bill and BethI love knishes too as long as I don't have to make them myself!Good hint for Carol, I'll pass it on.TerriYou are a very wise woman, learning one language at a time is enough. As they say in Yiddish - Mazel -(good luck)
Millie, I'm devastated - the link won't work for me!
How I wish I knew Yiddish betfer! I'm on shpilkes. waiting for Lesson 2!
I love this class and the smiling laughing teacher! Adding the spelled word at the bottom is da'beans! Thanks!When is lesson 2?
Excellent, Millie! That knish brought back memories of NYC & the wonderful deli that delivered 24/7!!!!! heys gezunt! Sid I get that right? Thanks! I'll be back for Lesson 2!!!!
Love it. It's great it because it's helping Millie remember as well as teaching us for the first time.
Pattie and SavadottyYou both have "shpilkes" (ant's in your pants) waiting for lesson #2, well, it's like this -Before I left for Florida Steve and I prepared 5 yiddish classes so I have 4 lessons left. I plan to put up one a month while I am down here so sit tight, next class will be up beginning of February. In the meantime "zy gezunt." (be well)KayLooks like you did your homework - you said it right! "Zayre Gut." (very good)JonnyYou hit the nail on the head. As I'm trying to remember how to say the words in Yiddish, it's a learning experience for me too.
sorry for a bad comment, but I think that the lesson was very poor...especially not being able to say a simple "zayt gezunt" in the end...it is a very good idea to promote yiddish through podcasts, but you should think better how excatly you will do it...
Fun lesson, looking forward to the next one! Hope they get longer as you go... :)
"goodbye" depends on the time of day.try "a gutn tog" (or as you'd say, "a gitn tug" based on your polish? dialect.)
She had a hard time saying good-bye in yiddish because the Yidden never truly say good-bye!there is such a thing as a yiddish good-bye, which is exactly what millie was doing; she took her time usually the average yiddish good-bye takes a good ten minutes and about 7 'ill see you later' and 'be well's!
There is no true term for saying goodbye if anything people will say "agiten" which, in exact translation means good. You can recongnize this term by "agiten tug" good day, "agiten nacht" a good night, "agiten shabbos" good shabbos.. And so on. To say goodbye you would subsitute the word with a blessing such as hatzlucha- which is also Hebrew for good luck. There are pleanty more...
Yammee! More closer, I can't reach to eat it.
Dear Millie,The Yiddish word for Chicken is HEEN.I love your Yiddish lessons
Thanks for the video tutorial. It is the first time that I have watched his video and it is pretty good.
I didn't understand what this woman was doing, well I think she tried to eat that donut, I can see that she knows to open her mouth very well.
Fantastic video, she sure explained very well.
I like it. Good post and great blog! thanks for this working:)
