    It's funny the reason things can happen.

    The smallest occurences or happenstance lead to big change.

    I'm so glad you understand the question thing.  My parents always said that as well.

    Someone helped me out with the Hebrew today and...

    יש לי עברית במחשב

    Finally!

    Also learned a site that has Israeli TV shows.  So that should help me brush up.  I watched a few clips from their version of American Idol (Cochav Nolad) and the beginning of a political satire show (Eretz Nehederet).

      left off the "שלי" at the end though.

      How difficult is it to switch between languages?

      The double-edged sword for me is that my Hebrew isn't good enough where I can get by without subtitles, but if I have subtitles I don't know if I'd ever learn by watching.  Although, it has led to the situations where I do know the words and the subtitle precedes the line, thereby causing me to say it to myself in my head before it's actually spoken on screen.

        I should've put on the שלי

        It's not that hard to switch between languages, once you've finally got it installed properly (!).  There's a shortcut, you press Left Alt + Shift.  Then press it again when you want to switch back.  

        Yeah, we've got opposite problems in Hebrew sort of.  My typing skills are not there, but my understanding fluency is good.  Meanwhile you're planning to IM in Hebrew?  If I tried that, it would take lightyears especially since I don't know the keyboard and keep having to refer back to the guide.  It'll come though...at least I hope.  

        I think subtitled films do help.  I remember we watched quite a few when I studied French.  It was cumulative.  As we watched more, we had to rely less on the subtitles.  But everybody has different ways they learn best.

          with my iPhone it's really simple because it's just pressing one key and the keyboard switches between American English and Hebrew.  As for when I'm typing on my computer, I have a Hebrew keyboard layout that I printed out, so when I'm typing in Hebrew I look at it (which I can do since I touch type).
