B is for beterschap and badkamer

Beterschap means get better soon – literally it’s betterness. I quite like the idea of wishing people beterness.

I asked the children if they had any suggestions for Dutch words I should write about. Rocket boy insisted that I included badkamer, which means bathroom. As in English it’s a combination of the word for bath (bad) and the word for room (kamer). When I asked rocket boy to explain why he explained that he liked the fact that it was two words that you could combine into one. He’s very fortunate that Dutch includes lots of those!
