Flashcard Friday: German Beach Vocabulary for Summer!

Hello everyone, and happy Friday! In a couple of weeks we’re going to be traveling to the North Sea here in Germany. The North Sea is located in northern Europe, and from what we can see from the pictures, it’s a really beautiful place! You can check out more about tourism at the North Sea here. We’re really excited about our trip, we’ve never been before and think it’s going to be a lot of fun. To get ready we’re trying to learn some German language beach vocabulary words, and we’ve made a list of some we think might come in handy! Here’s what we have so far:

Beach=der Strand 

Sand=der Sand

Vacation=der Urlaub 

Fish= der Fisch

Sea= das Meer

Swim= schwimmen


Starfish= der Seestern 

Sun=die Sonne 

Vacation house= das Ferienhaus

Sea horse=das Seepferdchen


Sand castle=die Sandburg

Bathing suit=der Badeanzug

We hope at least a few of these will be useful, but even if we don’t get to try them all out, at least they were fun to learn! Traveling in a foreign country is a great experience, but it can be challenging. What are some of the ways you prepare yourself when traveling somewhere that speaks a language that isn’t your native language? Do you like to learn specific vocabulary words ahead of time, or just wing it? Here’s to wishing you great travels and lots of nice weather to enjoy this weekend, no matter where in the world you happen to be at the moment. Until next week!
