In task 3, first sentence, i thought the correct way is "It is getting hot" because my teacher once said, never say "I am hot" since it is the way to express that you are sexy. Please explain it for me, thank you very much.

Hello quoc hung,

It is perfectly fine to say 'I'm hot'. In colloquial language (slang) it can have other meanings (sexy, in good form, having a lucky day), but that does not mean it has lost its original meaning.
