BEACH: The Word of the Month August 2011

Every month, we take a look at a word in the headlines, in English, for your English. See more at The Word of the Month.


A beach is a sandy strip of land next to the water.

It’s where girls become women, sharks attacks surfers, seagulls steal french fries, and where dreams come true.

Beach Buzz

August is the perfect month to go to the beach! On the other hand, it’s a bad month for anything else. Good luck finding an open pharmacy.

When you’re at the beach, watch out for killer green algae! It’s the number 2 wild boar killer after this guy.

Beach Basics

Nudist beaches are the best place to see German tourists in all their glory.

White sand beaches are a bit racist: they discriminate against black sand beaches.

Baywatch beaches are the best spot to see David Hasselhoff run in slow motion.

Beach vs Bitch

Don’t confuse ‘beach’ with bitch, a derogatory term for females.

Some people, like these French women, have a hard time distinguishing between the two terms.
