How to complain in hebrew

how to complain in hebrew Complaining in Hebrew, like in any other language, requires a combination of appropriate vocabulary and a sense of cultural nuance. Here are some phrases and expressions that you might use to express dissatisfaction or make a complaint in Hebrew, along with their English translations:

  1. I have a problem with...: יש לי בעיה עם... (Yesh li be'ayah im...)

  2. I'm not satisfied with...: אני לא מרוצה מ... (Ani lo merutze me...)

  3. This is not what I ordered: זה לא מה שהזמנתי (Zeh lo ma she'hazmanti)

  4. It's too cold/hot: זה קר/חם מדי (Zeh kar/cham midee)

  5. I've been waiting for a long time: אני מחכה זמן רב (Ani mechakeh zman rav)

  6. This is unacceptable: זה לא מקובל (Zeh lo mekubal)

  7. Can I speak with the manager, please?: אפשר לדבר עם המנהל, בבקשה? (Efshar ledaber im ha'menahel, bevakasha?)

  8. I would like a refund: אני רוצה החזר כספים (Ani rotze hachzarat kesafim)

  9. It's too noisy here: יש רעש רב פה (Yesh ra'ash rav po)

  10. I asked for this without...: ביקשתי את זה בלי... (Bikashti et zeh bli...)

Remember, the tone and approach matter when making a complaint. Being polite and respectful, even when you're unhappy with a situation, can often lead to a more positive resolution. Using phrases like "please" (בבקשה, bevakasha) and "thank you" (תודה, toda) will also help you convey your complaint in a courteous manner. If you're not sure about the right words to use, or if you want to make sure you're understood, you might also consider explaining the problem in English, as many Israelis speak and understand English, especially in urban and tourist areas.
