Learn Hebrew: Do we drink or eat soup?

hebrew drink or eat soup

It’s winter and time to enjoy a hot bowl or cup of your favorite soup.  What is the correct Hebrew? Do we eat or do we drink soup?  The Academy of Hebrew Learning shared this Hebrew lesson with us.

Like in English, in Hebrew the word drink is most commonly used when you don’t use an utensil. So in Hebrew, you would drink a cup of soup (without a spoon). However if you need to chew some of the ingredients and used a spoon, you would eat the soup.
