how to say “tiny little place” in Hebrew

מֶטֶר עַל מֶטֶר

Hebrew has a vivid way of saying that a place is really small: מטר על מטר (one) meter by (one) meter.

For example:

זאת דירה קטנטונת, ממש מטר על מטר!

It’s a tiny little apartment, really a meter by a meter!

על means literally on.

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.
