How to Say “I’ll Know Better” in Hebrew

I'll Know Better

אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חָכָם, אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חֲכָמָה


 “When will the videos be ready?” “I’ll know better once I manage to find all the right images.”In Hebrew, instead of saying I’ll know better, we say, אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חָכָם when a male is speaking and אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חֲכָמָה when a female is speaking.

Broken down:

אהיה – I will be – a form of the active-simple פָּעַל verb, לִהְיוֹת ( listen and repeat) – to be ( listen and repeat)

יותר – more – as in more smart ( listen and repeat)

חכם/חכמה – smart, wise ( listen and repeat)

The above dialogue translated:

“מָתַי הַסִּרְטוֹנִים יִהְיוּ מוּכָנִים?”

“אֶהְיֶה יוֹתֵר חָכָם כְּשֶׁאַצְלִיחַ לִמְצוֹא אֶת כָּל הַתְּמוּנוֹת הַמַּתְאִימוֹת.”
