Word of the day – big pond

Have you ever asked yourself how you could say “the big pond” In German? No? Me neither. But I was delighted when I came across it while reading the Norwegian best seller book Die Geschichte der Bienen. Look at the translation below. It’s sweet to know, right? Especially if you already know what Teich means (pond).

der große Teich = the big pond (the Atlantic ocean); über den/dem großen Teich = across the pond / on the other side of the pond
