Keilu- כְּאִלּוּ

Pronunciation: Ke-ilu

Literal translation: as if, as though

You know how like a lot of English speakers like add like to every like other word?

Ke-ilu is the Hebrew version of the word “like”. It is a helpful word to string sentences together and will make you sound more Israeli.

Ke-ilu can also be used as a way to say “I mean”, so you wouldn’t be wrong to start an explanation with this word.
