Swimming season started in Berlin – level 2

Swimming season started in Berlin – level 2

03-04-2013 06:00

It is still cold outside but that hasn't stopped brave swimmers in Berlin from swimming. Yes, that's true. The swimming season has started in the German capital and something like a little bit of snow didn’t stop some people from swimming.

One man says that it was like ice swimming but without ice. He hopes that spring will arrive one day. The brave men went to the sauna for free after swimming.

And if you think spring is coming soon, you're wrong. Weather forecasters say that there is going to be more snow in Berlin at the weekend.

Interesting words: ice swimming (swimming in water with ice), sauna (room with very high temperature where people sit).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
