Spanish Words on the Beach!

What's up guys? It's me again, Phora! In my quest to make the US understand that Spanish is a language that a lot of us should a least TRY to learn, I found an amazing way to help others try it out in a fun way. That way was — Tinycards! I've been making some basic cards for things like colors and animals in Spanish, and so far you guys seem to love them! I've figured out over the years that a really fun way to learn Spanish is by learning what some random, but fun words mean. So these cards are all about words on the beach! I hope whoever tries my cards out enjoys them (and possibly falls hopelessly in love with Spanish? Just a suggestion.) ;)

Have a great day everybody!

Great idea, especially for my next holiday in Tenerife...

But I think that there may be a mistake with regards to "Fish". I understand Pescado to be the culinary word for Fish; which you obviously correctly avoided in your cards. But instead you have used Pescar for your cards, which seems to be the action of fishing. My understanding that a fish that is alive and well, swimming around in the water is referred to as Pez in Spanish.

I checked my facts on Spanish Dictionary:

Fish

I do however apologise now if I am incorrect...

Thank you so much for helping me out on this one! I just looked it up on a few different websites (thanks for the link) and almost all of them agree that fish is pez. I'll fix it right away — thank you so much for not being critical and letting me know in such a nice way! :)

Very nice, thank you for your contribution. The word "lijar" was new to me. I had learned "arena" for sand on the beach or a sandbox. When I looked it up in my dictionary, it appears to me that "lijar" is like "to sand" as with sandpaper for "sanding" to make wood smooth.
