We have children reading dialogues in Ivrit and even changing up the words in a sentence to make an even sillier sentence that still makes sense grammatically!

The Anafim (2nd – 3rd grade) welcome board read, in part: היום מורה הנדה בישראל (Hayom Morah Hinda b’Yisrael.) – Today Morah Hinda is in Israel. And the rest of the board was in Hebrew, and children read it! They were ready. Anafimers know a lot of Hebrew, which they’ve learned simply by being here at the Jewish …
