how to say “grades” in Hebrew
Americans call them grades, but elsewhere in the English-speaking world they’re called marks. The Hebrew word for these indications that cause joys and woes, can make or break, is ציונים – while one grade or mark is ציון .
(It’s) not enough that there are good grades, it’s important (to) also (have) personality.
ציון is related to the word מצוין , which today means excellent but in Mishnaic times meant distinguished. Likewise, the Modern-Hebrew word לציין means to point out.
This evening (we) mark a new year. (Have a) good year!
