The meteorologist is the person who observes the sky and forecasts what is the wheather like now and what is going to be like in the near future. I sometimes watch in on Tv or sometimes look it on the internet, in my country they're usually reliable.

Meteoroligist is a person who examines the sky and says what's the weather like.
I'm looking it on Internet.
Yes, they are.

I sometimes watch or listen to weather forecasts. They are usually reliable.

I think Britsh weather is changeable


Thanks a lot for this video, it is interesting and usefull as your website! I'm glad I found it.

Wow! I never thought that Britain has an amazing technology to predict the weather. Hope I can come to the studio someday.

Dear administrator,
I am Jimmie Agustian from Indonesia,
I have been trying to get through most of the videos and lessons here, but I could not find the specific for each season in the UK,
I would like to share it to my kids the explanations of each season, spring, summer, autumn and winter, how that could happen, what people and animals do in each season and specially how is the weather changing and people activities, also what people actually wear in each season.
thank you for your help.

Hello Jim,

That sounds like a great plan to work through with your kids. I'm afraid that we don't have videos on each of the seasons, but I want to recommend our sister sites LearnEnglish Kids and LearnEnglish Teens, which are made especially for younger and older children. If you do an internet search for 'ESL weather seasons', I expect you could find some interesting content that way as well.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

weather in Egypt is quite the same. It's very changeable and you can feel hot in the morning and cold in the evening and at night .we can expect all kinds of weather especially in autumn . In summer, we have very hot weather,almost boiling in the morning and in the afternoon and much better at evening. In winter ,it's very cold .we have patchy rains and sometimes flooding and last year we started to have hail and that is not typical of winter in we struggled when it happened.... In spring we have wind and storm and the weather is much bad .what i like about spring is that the trees starts to be green and flowers is everywhere.... all in all the weather in Egypt is much to be enjoyed during summer .... so much for the weather in Egypt at all seasons :))
