I've been to Glasgow, Scotland twice. Yes, the weather was changeable but I liked it and I enjoyed it. And even raining, it was not so heavy rain but drizzling, soft rain. Besides, I visited in June this year and it was really cold in Scotland, June in Japan is hot enough to be 30 degrees Celcius! And in my city, the temparature may go up to 41 degrees in mid summer! It is cruel to us.

hello everyone
In United Arab Emirates the same Egypt but the summer a long time begin in March and finished sometimes in October and sometimes in November . It's very hot the degree 45 the top of temperature and in my country the winter is the favorite of people than any season because the winter is a little raining but it's only 3 months( December, January ,February)

I understand you like winter best, but it's a pity it lasts only three months, and the rest is summer? Oh, I hate it, as a matter of fact, I dropped by at your country when I go to U.K, as a stop-over. I remember when I got off the plain, the hot wind was blowing, I asked for iced coffee, but they didn't have it, why? The temparature was so high!

My country has almost all climatic zones which there is on Earth, and in place where I live climate is moderate- summer not so hot, but winter can be pretty cold. Hot day for me is when temperature increases to 28°C and more, but cold day is when temperatur decreases to -5°C and more respectively. Also humidity can impact on the feeling of temperature.

Egypt has four seasons, each one has it's own weather; in summer it's quit hot with no rains. The autumn - my favorite one - the climate is fine, no rain, no wind, not cold and not hot. In winter there is little rain, some wind and few days of thunder and lightening. The spring is characterized by its' marvelous colors but has dusty wind that spoil the joy. I love the country weather anyway.

The summer in Portugal is really nice, we don't have rain most part of the season and is a quite hot (weel, this is also a bad thing for the fires). The summer this year started a little bit later...I don´t know..maybe it´s because the climate changes? Global warming? We will see...and the winter it´s not so bad, the most rainy months are december, january and february and it´s not so cold.

I prefer walking to all kinds of transport. It's healthy and keeps me fit. I don't like train because you should sit long time without any activity. Plane from this point of view is preferable - it takes less time to reach destination and you don't have time to get boring.

series 3 number 3 task 5
Tell us about the climate in your country.
I live in Germany.
I rarely go out so I don't usually realize what the weather is.
Cold weather is for me a temperature below 17 °C.
Hot weather is for me a temperature above 24 °C.
The weather is a bit cold in winter and a bit warm in summer. I think the weather is O.K. It's not very cold or very warm.
Cold weather is never a problem because our houses are heated and I can wear a jacket. I haven't got an air conditioner and I must wear some clothes so in summer it's a bit hot.
The weather is not very changeable. It often stays the same for a few days.

Here in Sudan it's totally different , it was never snowed before and we don't have Spring season . The climate is mostly hot . the temperature is about 45 °C this days
