Weather - Summer and Autumn

In this section, we will learn about the four different seasons along with the difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit.  Also, we will learn about weather in different parts of the world.  In the next session, we will practice more dialog.  But this is a good starting point when learning to hold a conversation about the weather.

Summer:

Depending on the location, summer can be warm and pleasant or unbearably hot and humid.  Although you will describe summer in one particular way, you should be aware of how other people describe summer in different parts of the world.

In Nevada, Arizona, Egypt, or other places that are like deserts, people might say,
"Summer is very hot and dry.  It's not so bad when we are in the shade."
"Summer is extremely hot.  The sun will burn you if you don't wear sunscreen."
"Because it's not humid, it is easy to get used to."

In Seattle, the summer is the best season,
"Summer is the only time of year that it doesn't rain much."
"Summer is like paradise in Seattle."
"If summer wasn't so good here, I would move to a different city."

In New York, Korea, or other hot and humid places, people can say,
"Summer is both hot and humid here."
"I am always sticky because I sweat so much during the summer."
"Without air conditioning, I don't know how I would survive."

Spring and Fall / Autumn

From my perception, I noticed that spring and autumn are generally pleasant seasons for many areas of the world.  I haven't heard enough to say one way or another, so I can only write down what I know.

"My favorite season is autumn."
"The only reason I don't like the fall is due to all the leaves I have to rake up."
"Fall is so beautiful because of all the different color leaves everywhere."
"It rains a lot around here during the fall."
"It gets cold in late autumn."
"In our country, autumn is just like summer.  It's hot and humid."
"My favorite season is spring because of the budding flowers."
"I love the spring because it's not cold nor hot."
"The spring season here causes a lot of people to sneeze due to all the flowers appearing.  Many people with allergies hate the spring."
