Multilingual flashcard: Snowflake

Still enjoying the snow? Or has it melted where you are?

As I love snow so much, I decided to do a mini-series of winter-related vocabulary for the multilingual flashcards this week.

Here is snowflake in 10 languages.

Snowflakes are almost always symmetrical with six folds or points, although there are 8 main types with over 8- variants. It is theoretically possible that two snowflakes could be identical but is very rare and has never been observed. Snowflakes look white because the structure of the ice crystals causes diffuse reflection of the entire spectrum of light. Snowflakes change shape after they have fallen and become part of snowpack accumulating on the ground.

Hope your language learning resolutions are all set for this year!
