how to say “less” in Hebrew

פָּחוֹת

The word for moreיותר – is among the first 50 words we teach in our program, partly because it appears in the super-useful expression יותר מדי – too much, as in:

זה יותר מדי כסף!

It’s too much money!

The word for less – פחות – is less commonפחות נפוצה , but still important to know.

Here it is in context:

בזמן האחרון הכביש פחות עמוס.

Lately the road has been less busy.

Less than is -פחות מ :

אפשר להשיג את זה בפחות מעשרה שקלים.

You can get it for less than ten shekels.

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.
