how do you say “to consult” in Hebrew?

לְהִתְיָעֵץ

People like to give advice – not many like receiving it unsolicited. The Hebrew word for advice is עצה , while pieces of advice are עצות .

For example:

יש לי כמה עצות בשיבלך.

I have a few pieces of advice for you (a male).

But solicited advice is fine. In Hebrew there’s a word for to solicit advice or to consult: להתייעץ .

For example:

אתייעץ עם המנהלת ואחזור אליכם.

I’ll consult with the (female) manager and I’ll get back to you guys.

להתייעץ is a reflexive-intensive verb of the root י.ע.צ .

After having studied literature and linguistics on the bachelors level and psychology on the masters, Ami decided to draw upon his hobby of learning languages, his understanding of human thought processes and his skill of explaining complex ideas in simple terms, to found a program that enables people to speak Hebrew with confidence.
