How to ask "where are you from" in hebrewDo you want to introduce yourself or have a small talk with an Israeli? Learn how to ask where are you from in Hebrew and how to answer when you are asked.

When you ask someone “where are you from” In Hebrew you literally say “from where you?” As simple as that:

From = מ = mi

Where = איפה = eifo

You (masculine, singular) = אתה = atta

You (feminine, singular) = את = att

You (masculine, plural) = אתם = attem

You (feminine, plural) אתן = atten

All together would be:

To a man:

מאיפה אתה? – mi eifo atta?

To a woman:

מאיפה את? – mi eifo att?

To a group of men:

מאיפה אתם? – mi eifo attem?

To a group of women:

מאיפה אתן? – mi eifo atten?

 

Now, let’s see how different people from different countries would answer that question. Before we start with the various countries, let me explain how that works out.

When we say “I am from…” in Hebrew, we say “ani mi…” then we, of course, add the name of the country where we want to say we come from!

I (am) = ani = אני

From = mi = מ

Interesting enough, the name of the country is glued to the word “from”. Let’s see a few examples:
