Swimming season started in Berlin – level 1
It is still cold outside. But it didn't stop swimmers in Berlin. Berlin is the capital of Germany. People started to swim outside in Berlin. The snow didn't stop them.
There was no ice in the water. But the water was very cold. One man who swam in the cold water hopes that spring will come soon. The swimmers went to sauna after swimming. The sauna was for free.
Did you think that the spring is coming? No, spring isn’t coming. There will be more snow at the weekend in Berlin.
Interesting words: capital (the most important city in the country where a president lives), sauna (room with very high temperature where people sit).
