how to say “team” in Hebrew

צֶוֶת

The word for team or staff is צוות , as in:

אני מאוד גאה בצוות המורים שלנו.

I’m really proud of our teaching staff.

Note that although it has a ת ending, צוות is a masculine noun, so that a large staff is צוות גדול .

צוות comes from the Aramaic צוותא – a group doing something together. צוות thus refers to people working together to achieve a common goal. It is not used to refer to a sports team – that’s קבוצה (group) or נבחרת (chosen ones for the team).

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.
