Around the world

1. How is the weather in England? 2. Do you like the weather there?

Around the world

“Other countries have a climate but in England we have weather,” Englishmen often say. This really tells us something about England , which is often true. English people can go through four seasons in one day. The day may begin as a gentle spring morning; an hour or so later black clouds come from nowhere and it may rain heavily. By noon, it can be like winter as the temperature drops by eight or more degrees. And then, in the late afternoon, the sky could clear, the sun shine and for an hour or two before dusk, it will be summer. In England one can go through almost every kind of weather to be found in a year, whether the best or the worst, all in one day!
