Because it's the spirit of the rabbi talking, not the rabbi himself. ;) (The Assimil has
this written down in one of the notes.)

Oh, interesting. It sounds very strange that way haha. Also I forgot to say, I think you meant מבינה, not מוינה.

By the way, I have to say that Assimil is quite nervy with this type of joke. Not many
textbooks would dare throw this one in, it's pretty acid humor with religion.

Actually that is half of their selling point... "how to learn a language through jokes."

I don't know, I think it's more a joke about Israeli bus drivers than about religion. ;)

The comment note is about the struggle between secular and religious Israelis.

But yes, also about the bus drivers X)

Today I spoke some Icelandic for the (second) time in my life. The first being some
scattered words when I was in Iceland a few years ago. The result of three lessons of
Colloquial is the following - I already can form simple sentences. However the downside
is that everything I say is influenced by my speaking Swedish - which means everything I
say is pronounced if it was done by a Swede (not a Dutchman...) I say Strooooohhkur, I
don't make the vowels even enough.

The last couple days I have not focused so much on languages, except enjoying them in
extensive ways; I have read until chapter 13 of Harry Potter ha Maen ar Furien. I have
also covered a lesson of Le Roumain and the Routledge course.

Mostly I have been busy with work and my thesis. However today I also found some time to
practice my spoken Hebrew, but I need to break out of a plateau with that language. I am
doing okay with it, but it's improving only at a very slow rate right now. I have learned
now things. Actually that is the language I really want to practice the most right now;
Hebrew.

If only so I could become an Aviv Geffen groupie...
