Welcome to the fifth Hebrew lesson about gender. This time we will view a list of people, feminine and masculine, followed by grammar rules, finally a list of expressions in Hebrew to help you practice your daily phrases.
אשה / רעיה
In general, gender is used to distinguish between male and female, sometimes referred to as masculine and feminine. For example: my son and daughter are students the noun [son] is masculine, while [daughter] is feminine. The following examples use gender in different ways and places to demonstrate their behavior.

|my son is a student|
