Word of the week - two words this time!

something sweet that you eat after the main part of the meal
- For dessert we had ice-cream and cake.

a large area of very hot dry land where few plants grow
- The Sahara desert is in North Africa.

These two words look almost the same.
You can remember them this way:

dessert has a double S
dessert = something sweet

desert has one S
desert = there's only one S in Sahara
