how to say “a sign” in Hebrew

סִימָן, שֶׁלֶט

sign in the spiritual sense is סימן , for example:

חיכיתי לסימן שיהיה בסדר.

I waited for a sign that it would okay.

סימן also means a marker, such as that on a hiking trail:

שימו לב לסימני הדרך.

Pay attention to the path markers. (spoken to more than one person)

Then there’s a printed sign. The word for that is שלט , as in:

הוא כמעט עלה על מוקש, אבל אז הוא ראה את השלט.

He almost stepped (went up) on a land mine, but then he saw the sign.

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.
