1. It is a beautiful day at the beach.

아름다운 해수욕장 풍경입니다 .

2. Many people are enjoying the sunshine.

일광욕을 즐기는 사람들이 많이 보입니다 .

3. One small boy is burying his father’s legs in the sand.

한 남자 꼬마는 아빠 다리에 모래를 쌓고 있네요 .

4. Some other children are throwing a beach ball.

비치볼을 갖고 노는 아이들도 있습니다 .

그 뚱보 아저씨는 신문을 읽고 있어요 .

바다로 달려가고 있는 인명구조원을 찍고 있군요 .

9. In the water a girl is waving her arms for help.

물속에서 여자애 한 명이 도와달라고 팔을 휘젓고 있네요

물에 가라앉지 않으려 허우적대고 있는 것 같습니다 .

다른 세 사람은 고무보트를 향해 헤엄치고 있습니다 .
