Lesson 3: The Weather

You want to learn some weather vocabulary and here is a simple way to learn about the weather.

Talking about the weather is a great way to continue a conversation with someone.  

For these lessons you will need to know the following vocabulary:

  • Cloud - Is a noun.  It is a collection of water particles or ice in the air that you can see.  You can describe the weather as being cloudy when there are a lot of clouds in the sky.

It's cloudy = It is cloudy.  You can see the clouds over the mountains and the sky is not blue.

When you are inside and do not know what the weather is like, you can ask "What's the weather like outside?".

Describing the weather again, you can refer to the temperature.  It is cool out or it is cool outside.

Rainy Weather
