1. What’s the weather like where you live?
Well, I was born and grew up in a tropical country, so it’s pretty much hot and humid year round. However, in Northern cities, we actually enjoy four distinct seasons. In summery months, it can get really sweltering, and by contrast, temperatures can really dip in winter.
Sweltering (adj) extremely hot in an unpleasant or uncomfortable way
Dip (verb) to become less
2. What type of weather do you like best?
I’d consider myself a cold weather person. I love the crisp mornings at the end of fall and the chill of winter. Maybe it’s because we have to bundle up as the weather turns cold, and I love wearing sweaters and overcoats.
Crisp (adj) crisp weather is pleasant because it is cold and dry
Bundle up (verb) to put warm clothes on yourself or someone else, or to wrap someone in something warm
3. Does the weather ever affect what you do?
You know, I gotta say yes, especially when it rains. I mean, I cannot go out and run my errands if it’s pouring outside. The roads get really slippery, so it’s quite dangerous to drive. Besides, you will definitely be soaked if you do decide to go out.
Run an errand (phrase) to take a short trip to do a specific thing
Slippery (adj) tending to cause slipping or sliding, as ice, oil, or a wet surface
Soaked (adj) To make thoroughly wet or saturated
4. Does it rain a lot in your hometown?
Well, it depends on the season. In winter and spring, there is a dearth of rain associated with the arid weather. In contrast, it is usually raining cats and dogs in summer and august, causing loads of troubles for people travelling on the road.
Dearth (noun) a scarcity or lack of something.
Arid (adj) (of land or a climate) having little or no rain; too dry or barren to support vegetation
Rain cats and dogs (idiom) rain heavily
5. Does rain ever affect transportation in your hometown?
Yeah, of course. Traffic is often held up when it rains. All the roads are clogged, and people find it difficult to escape from traffic congestion. I would stay at home and watch TV rather than going out and being caught up in traffic.
