Why do Israelis have such a good accent when they speak Spanish?

Every Israeli I’ve met has a near-perfect accent when trying to speak Spanish. Why is that? Is Hebrew at all similar in pronunciation?


  1. When it was reconstructed, Israeli Hebrew pronunciation was based heavily on Sephardic Hebrew, which has a lot of Spanish influence. I’d guess that would explain phonetic similarities.
