My first comment in British Council, here in my city the weather is most of time hot. When the winter comes then is the rain that appears, not the Snow. The landscapes are so beautiful here too.

My favourite part of the year is summer, so from that I like hot and sunny weather all the time. Unfortunately, in my city, (a few years ago) summer was rainy and cloudly most of the time, so I escaped on the south of the country, there you could see rain and heatwaves at the same time, but rain soon wear off and the sun comes again!

I have a problem British English, I can not hear the recordings. I dont´t know why it happens. Help me.

Hello Tossa

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble hearing the audio. I would suggest you try using a different web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Edge) and/or using a different device (e.g. a different phone, or a computer instead of a phone, etc.). The audio is working for me.

If you still can't get it to work, please tell us what kind of device you are using, what operating system it has, and what browser and browser version you are using.

All the best

sunny sky with cool weather is the weather that i like the best because i gives me feel good.for example, i like the first month of spring because you can breathe in a cool and fresh air.

I'd like to know what the difference between 'weather' and 'climate' is, or they are the same.

Good day Cesar, 'weather' refers to the prevailing weather conditions on a short period of time from one day to about a month, and for climate from two months upwards.

Thanks for the definition.

Hello César

When we speak about the weather, we're talking about a shorter time frame -- a day, a week, even a year -- and when we talk about the climate, we're talking about a longer time frame. I'm not sure if there's a specific line, but I imagine climate is thought of at the very least in decades, if not longer periods of time.

Dear Kirk
Thank you so much for your support and the article. I got it right. Responding to discussion question, in my case, I prefer temperate climates, in other words, average temperates of 20°C (without extreme temperatures) and seasonal rains.
