Street interviews. The second part of the video comes with subtitles.

What's the weather like?

You don't need to learn new vocabulary, but if you want to, here are more words:


On this video they talk about the weather, so let s see the words they use to do it:

The word "like" here is a preposition (comparative), not the verb to like!
To answer this question we use: IT’S + adjective (it’s cold, it’s windy, it’s foggy...)

Temperature (from less to more):
chilly - cold - brisk - cool - warm - hot

CHILLY is very cold
BRISK is a bit cold, but nice, you like it
COOL is similar to "brisk", cold but nice, and it’s a more common word
WARM is a bit hot but nice, you like it

CLOUDY= with clouds in the sky
OVERCAST= the sky is completely covered with dark clouds and there’s not much light

DAMP= humid, with a lot of water in the atmosphere
CRISP= very cold and very dry
WINDY= with a lot of wind
DULL= not too bad but not nice. Maybe cloudy and a little windy or something. Boring weather
BREEZY= with a gentle breeze (light wind), nice
BRIGHT= with a lot of light
SUNNY= without clouds, with the sun shining
MILD= just fine. Not too cold, not too hot, not too windy, not too sunny
RAINY= with rain (we can say "it’s rainy" or we can say "it’s raining")

Other useful words not on this video:

FOGGY= with fog (clouds on the ground)
MISTY= similar to foggy but the fog is very light, so you can see quite well except for distant places
IT’S RAINING= drops of water falling
IT’S HAILING= drops of ice falling
IT’S SNOWING= perfect for a white Christmas
IT’S POURING= it’s raining very very much
