    英语口语练习——怎样谈论天气How to talk about weather


    English speakers love to talk about the weather. It is a way of breaking the ice (starting a conversation). People talk about the weather on the phone and in person. Friends and family talk about the weather before they discuss what's new. Co-workers talk about the weather before starting a hard day of work. Even strangers discuss the weather. Learn the proper vocabulary and expressions, and you will find it easy to start a conversation anytime and anywhere with anyone you meet!

    Common questions and responses about Weather

    ——What's it like out? ——It's miserable out.
    ——How's the weather? ——It's ten below. (-10 degrees)
    ——Do you have rain? ——We haven't had a drop of rain for weeks.
    ——What's the temperature there? ——It's 22 degrees Celcius.
    ——It's snowing here, what's it doing there? —— It's pouring outside. (raining heavily)
    ——Beautiful day, huh? ——We couldn't ask for a better day than this.
    ——What's the weather forecast? ——They're calling for blue skies all week.

    One common mistake learners make when talking about the weather is mixing up the noun, adjective and verb forms of weather words.

    Example 3: What's the weather like?
