how to say “to come to a conclusion” in Hebrew

לְהַגִּיעַ לְמַסְקָנָה

To come to a conclusion, in Hebrew, is להגיע למסקנה – literally, to arrive at a conclusion, where מסקנה means conclusion.

But whereas in English this expression sounds a bit stiff and formal, as in:

אחרי חישובים מדויקים הגענו למסקנה חד-משמעית.

After precise calculations we arrived at an unambiguous conclusion.

…in Hebrew the expression can be heard in everyday speech, like the English to realize.

For example:

הגעתי למסקנה שאנחנו לא מתאימים.

I realized (came to the conclusion) that we’re not right or each other.

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.
