how to say and use “pleasant” in Hebrew

נָעִים

The Hebrew word for pleasant is נעים

. But whereas in English pleasant isn’t such a common word, Hebrew’s נעים appears in all kinds of common expressions.

For instance, you may recognize נעים from the equivalent of nice to meet you – literally, very pleasantנעים מאוד

. Another common phrase is לא נעים לי
– it’s unpleasant for me, or I’m uncomfortable with this. For example:

לא נעים לי להגיד, אבל סגור את הריצ’רץ’.

It’s awkward (unpleasant) for me to say, but zip (close) your fly.

The opposite is true as well, so that נעים לי

means I feel comfortable.

For example:

יש חימום וצבעים יפים – נעים לי פה בחדר.

There’s heating and pretty colors – I feel good (it’s pleasant for me) in this room.
