Hello, everyone! I'm Gordon. My hometown is Taiyuan, ShanXi China. This city is in the north of China. And in our country, we have four season(spring, summer,autumn and winter). The hottest season is summer whose temperature is up to 30 degree centigrade in my hometown. And the coldest season is winter whose temperature is up to -20 degree centigrade. I don't like the temperature is too high or too low, I think the temperature which is mezzo(20-28 degree centigrade) is perfect for me. If the temperature is higher than 30 degree ,It is hot for me and if the temperature is lower than 10 degree ,It is cold for me.
