Hi, everyone! Welcome to Top Words. Today, we are going to be talking about the 20 Words You’ll Need for the Beach. Let’s start!
1. Our first word is
güneş gözlüğü, meaning "sunglasses"
Güneş gözlüğümü plajda unuttum. "I forgot my sunglasses at the beach."
No, I never do.
2. Our second word is
plaj, meaning "beach"
Hafta sonları plaj kalabalık olur. "The beach is crowded on the weekends."
Isn’t it? I usually prefer, in fact, going to beaches that aren't really known by everyone because the sea is cleaner and there is no crowd that can bother you. That’s how I do it. What do you do? Do you like going to crowded beaches? I don’t think so.
3. Our third word is
yüzme, meaning "swimming"
Yüzme yarışmasında ikinci oldum. "I won the second place in the swimming contest."
In fact, I have a confession to make okay? Until last year, and I’m telling you I’m 24 years old, I didn’t know how to swim. I always pretend that I was swimming. I always kept my foot touching to the ground and jump in. And when we go out like the depth was 3-4m, of course, I wasn’t reaching, I was like “Oh my god. Tutai can you help me go back to shore? Can you help me back?” They don’t understand. No one really did. Then last year, I did my confession to my friend, “I don’t know how to swim.” They were all shocked. “How? No, you’re swimming, no! You know how to swim.” “No, I don’t know.” But then I learned - then I learned how to swim. It is ironic, right? 20 Words You Need for the Beach, swimming and I don’t know how to swim. I didn’t back then. I know now.
4. Our fourth word is
şapka, meaning "hat"
Güneş altında şapkasız dolaşma. "Don't walk around under the sun without a hat."
Otherwise, you are going to become a lobster. It is in fact, In Turkish, we say the same thing Istakoz gibi yandin! “You became a lobster!” after all the tan.
5. Our fifth word is
palmiye, meaning "palm tree"

Can you believe it?
