how do you say “multitasking” in Hebrew?

רִבּוּי מְשִׂימוֹת

The Hebrew word for task is משימה . It derives from the root ש.י.מ meaning to place or to put: a task is something a person might apply or put themselves to.

For example:

זאת משימה לא פשוטה.

This is not a simple task.

Multitasking is ריבוי משימות , where ריבוי means multiple, deriving from the root ר.ו.ב meaning great or many – the same root as in הרבה – many.

For example:

קשה לעמוד בריבוי משימות.

It’s hard to (withstand) multitasking.

Another way to say to multitask is לעשות כמה דברים במקביל – to do several things at the same time.

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.
