обрадоваться /ɐˈbradəvət͡sə/ verb, perfective – to get excited, to rejoice, to be glad, to be happy

Я так обрадовалась, узнав, что ты возвращаешься. I was so happy when I heard you were coming back.

Prefix о(б)- shows, among other things, that the action naturally reached its peak. Without this prefix, the verb would be imperfective and mean a lasting emotion, not a spike of happiness.

Today I was reading The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury and one story was called The Veldt.

I’ve never heard of that word! I looked it up and it refers to the South African grassland. Veldt comes from the Afrikaans word for “field”.

Spanish translation: Sabana, pradera, or simply veld

Example of use: A pride of lions appeared in the veldt / Una manada de leones apareció en la sabana

I had pigeons decide to build a nest my bathroom today, so while searching for those spikey things people put on buildings to keep birds from landing there, I found out the German word is called “Vogelabwehr” or “Taubenabwehr” which literally translates to “bird defense” or “pigeon defense.” I couldn’t tell you what the English word is, but the German one made me chuckle!
