how to say “round trip” in Hebrew

הָלוֹך וָשׁוֹב, הָלוֹך חָזוֹר

When you get on the bus in Israel and want to ask for a round-trip ticket, you should say:

כרטיס הלוך ושוב, בבקשה.

A round-trip ticket, please.

“בבקשה” is optional.

הלוך means going, and ושוב means and returning.

But you could also use a less formal term, and the driver will understand you just fine: הלוך חזור . This term also means going-returning, where חזור is the more basic word, more like coming back.

For example:

אני שוחה שלושים בריכות הלוך חזור.

I (a male) swim thirty pools (laps, lengths) back and forth.

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.
