In my country, the climate is desert.
The best time of year is spring, when the weather is temperate.
The temperature on a hot day reaches 48
And on cold days it reaches 10 or less

Hi everyone, I am Gil. from São Paulo, Brazil. We have four seasons per day here. Now, we are living an extremely hot season, for me the best time of the year is the winter, I prefer to use jackets and walking in the streets when the weather is colder.

I am from Oman and the weather here is really hot all the year, so the worst time in the year is in summer. We can't go out because of the extreme hot. the temperature reaches about 39. While in the winter, the weather comes very cold and for me it's the best time in the year and the temperature reaches 7.

Actually it's reach 50 some days in July . Otherwise it depends on which part of our country .

Hi everybody!

I came from Warsaw in Poland. There have been 4 seasons before climate changed. I remember the snow in the mountains on the South of country in winter. I remember frozen in Warsaw 25 years ago. I was ice skating in the park when I have been child.

Now weather is hotter there. Of course in the mountains are ski resorts and runs in the winter but sometimes they have to use a fake snow.

In the summer temperature reaches 30-40 degrees of Celsius. In 2016 was heat weather through three mount from June to August. It was nightmare, 35-36 degrees everyday in Warsaw. I looked for the shadow on the streets.

I does not like the heat, my favourite weather is 25 degrees in summer and my favourite season is spring. There is short spring now, cold turns into hot quickly. I like weather in London, changeable is better idea. I love long Sprig here and frequency sunny days.

the climate in my city "Abha " is temperate, but also changeable, in winter the temperature reaches 0 c, and in summer it less than 30 c
it rains a lot and it foggy most days of the year
we love it so much.

The climate in my country do change, like the rain it's seasonal.
The best time of year is summer and worst is the raining season, because its affects many activities.
The average temperature for a hot day is between 32-34 °C. While, an average temperature for a cold day ranges from 23 °C below.

I originally from sri lanka, now i am in Melbourne Austalia. The weather here is very similar to Britain. That is one thing i love to be here.All four seasons in one day. Always we looking forward to see the change. That is very possitive. The life is never boaring in Melbourne. I mean never feel tired. Anyway the weather in Sri Lanka is completely different. Very humid. People never talk about the weather unless it is very impprtant.

Hi, in my country we have four seasons, but I like spring and summer the most, because in spring flowers and trees bloom and in summer the market is full of fresh fruits and vegetables. In summer I have my long holiday and I love swimming in the lake.
And about temperature : in winter if the temperature is below 10 degree so that feels really cold in my city, because here the climate and air is wet. In summer , if the temperature is above 20 degree it is really hot. I don't like when it's too hot, because I might start to sweat. Thank you for your podcasts.
