Is British Weather Really That Bad?
In today’s video, I start by explaining the British mentality and attitude towards the weather and I answer the question: “Is the weather here as bad as people say?” I also do my best to share useful expressions and words you can use in small talk when talking English to new people.
- It’s a scorcher today – It’s really hot
- It’s a sweltering day – It’s uncomfortably hot
- Boiling – It’s very hot (most common)
- Stifling – It’s so hot it’s hard to breathe
- Blistering heat – Intense, strong heat
- Heatwave – A period of abnormally hot weather
- To sun-bathe – To relax in the sun and get a tan
- Sun tan – Darker skin because of the sun (I have a tan)
- To tan – To make your skin darker in the sun (She’s tanning on the beach)
- Tanned (adjective) – Describes someone which darker skin from being in the sun
- Farmer’s tan – Someone who has tan lines on their arms, legs and neck because they never take off their shirt outside
- It’s like a sauna in here / It’s like an oven in here – This room is too hot!
Can you tell me about the weather in your country without using “hot” or “cold”?
