FRESH-5: meaning and examples

Good morning.

This week we have seen that the English adjective fresh can mean:

Monday: recently produced or picked food that is not frozen, dried or preserved in tins or cans.
Tuesday: new or different in a way that replaces something.
Wednesday: made or experienced recently
Thursday: containing no salt (when talking about water)

Today's meaning is: pleasantly clean, pure or cool.

Example 1:
My son is obsessed with Licor del Polo toothpaste. He says it leaves a nice fresh taste in his mouth.

Example 2:
After the meeting, everyone went to the terrace to get some fresh air.

Example 3:
John enjoys riding his motorbike to work because he likes the feeling of the fresh breeze in his hair.

Today's definition could translate to Spanish as fresco (aire fresco, brisa fresca, etc.). But remember, we don't usually use fresh to indicate temperature.  

If you have any questions about the word fresh, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.

Have a good day and an excellent weekend.
