Anyone can speak another language! It's all about confidence.
Israelis love to chat, so don't be surprised - or caught out - if a total stranger starts up a heated discussion while you wait at a bus stop or felafel stand. An ancient language, Hebrew is the lingua franca of this most cosmopolitan of countries. Whether on a working holiday or on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, this book is an essential companion into the fascinating life of Israel.
