I have a Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich OS installed, and I write emails and text messages in Hebrew and English.

The English keyboard has as-you-type word suggestions that appear (in blue) bove the keys while typing.

The Hebrew keyboard does not have that feature (it only suggest to complete contact names). How do I add word suggestions to my device?

Are you using the stock keyboard, or a 3rd-party replacement? – Chahk Mar 15 '12 at 20:14

Try using a 3rd-party keyboard replacement app.

I've previously used AnySoftKeyboard, and can confirm that it does show word suggestions on other languages. For Hebrew you would need to install the corresponding language pack as well.
