Spanish word of the day: 'Chapuzón'

It's summer in Spain and there's nothing better than taking a 'chapuzón'to cool off in this hot weather!



Today's Word of the Day means to take a dip into water. Let’s see some examples:

  • Después de la comida me voy a dar un chapuzón en la piscina.

      After lunch, I'm going to take a dip in the pool.


  • Si tienes mucho calor lo mejor es darse un chapuzón, el agua del mar es muy refrescante.

       If you are very hot it is best to take a dip, seawater is very refreshing.


  • Al salir de la sauna me di un chapuzón en agua helada.

       When I went out of the sauna I went for a dip in the cold water.



Remember not to mistake it with chapuza ,that is a similar word but means a botched job!


This song called el Verano, talks about the summer, going to the beach and chapuzones!
