Hello again Natasa Tanasa,

The sentence is fine. We can use throughout to mean 'from beginning to end', which is the meaning it has in your example.

The weather I like most is drizzle, cloudy and wet days, because I usually sit down in my favorite couch of my house, reading a novel and drinking tea.

I like the cold weather. I live in Bogotá, Colombia and I love the weather here because is not hot although sometimes drizzle I like that. Here we have heatwaves but is not usual, the most days are rainy days or with little sun

Actually i preffer Sunny weather. I love it

I like sunshine the best, because in sunny weather I enjoy and feel happy.

What an interesting sounds did I hear while I was listening the recording ?

Do Britishcouncil record lesson on the kitchen ?

Hi lean,

Actually, you're almost correct! The text is a weather forecast which people often listen to in the kitchen, so there are background noises from a kitchen. When I listen to it I feel like making myself a cup of tea!


More seriously, we often have background noises in our recordings. After all, the world is full of sounds and noise, and we think it's important for listening in the classroom to be in as similar as possible to listening outside the classroom.
