how to say “to get along” in Hebrew

לְהִסְתַּדֵּר

If you’ve got some very basic Hebrew under your belt, you know the expression הכל בסדר – everything’s fine.

בסדר means literally in order, where סדר means order. This word, also a three-letter root, forms the basis of the word להסתדר – to get along, both with other people and with what you need to do, to manage.

For example:

לא הסתדרתי בלי משקפיים, עד שעשיתי ניתוח הסרה.

I didn’t manage without glasses, until I did removal surgery.

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.
