Each Wednesday, we’ll try to post a word or phrase in one of our new languages (Slovak and Romani) that will give you a glimpse into the place we’re living.
Since we’re officially in autumn now, today’s words will focus on the seasons:
SLOVAK: jeseň [YESS-ehn] – (the last “n” is actually the ñ sound, as in “canyon”)
MEANING: Autumn. The leaves have already begun turning here, and the weather is getting cooler… it’s going to be a beautiful fall!
SLOVAK: zima [ZEE-mah]
MEANING: Winter. As you already know, winter here will be cold!
