Day 10: Word of the Day: Die Heimat

Australia is known for its year-long warm weather. Although we have four seasons our winter is not as profound as it is in Germany where it can drop to minus 20. I miss Sydney for its coast. We have over one hundred beaches, Bondi, Manly, Cronulla are the one you have mostly heard of. We are a multicultural land which makes for diverse food and traditions. One of the exercises of your German course is to describe your homeland. It’s weather, food, nature, people. So a tip from me is to build a vocabulary of adjectives (describing words). What would you like your classmates to know about your homeland?

Die Heimat [Hi-Mat] Noun

The land in which where you were born and raised.
