My favorite pattern of weather is a warm day full of sunlight, which is typical of the summer, and I can’t wait till it starts. Yes, it sometimes gets scorching hot and sultry. But I don’t care. At least I don’t have to fight with bulky overcoats or down jackets.
Summery days mean blue sky, gentle breeze, white beaches, and green trees. I love the warmth, the plenty of sunshine it brings and the sun tanned people. On those days, girls wear cute skirts and lovely sun bonnets. All the beautiful colors go around, capturing our attention and being so eye-pleasing. And you can feel the longing to go outdoors and experience an adventure.
It is the ice cream time as well as of a variety of fruits, such as peaches, strawberries and watermelons. I love those after going swimming or hiking. Plus, it is also a time of great relaxation. You’ll always marvel at how much fun and entertainment can be squeezed into sunny days. There is the time of rest, swimming, surfing, picnics, fishing and boating. There is always something going on and there are always people enjoying nature. I love this type of weather because it is linked to most of my best memories and it never fails to trigger my passion in life.

Oh, this is also my favorite topic, too. Well, I enjoy cold weather which is always such a rare event in my city, you know since our city is near the equator, so it’s hot and humid during a year. Therefore, I always look forward to December when the weather is cool and a little bit cold with wind. It’s my time; then during this weather, I usually prefer lying on the bench in my garden, watching the sky and sipping my hot coffee with joy and pleasure. As I can do what I can’t in the dry season, so I’m always like on cloud nine whenever this cold comes. I enjoy doing all the things under this kind of weather, especially with my mother, such as planting the trees, looking at the sky and going out without having to wear any jackets. I think I never get bored with the cold weather due to the fact that it’s very comfortable to work and study. Besides, when this type of weather turns up, it means that an interesting series of holidays may come around soon like Christmas and New Year, which are the time for family and for you.

QUESTIONS FOR PART 3
What’s the difference between ‘season’ and ‘weather’?
Well the difference is basically that seasons are a time of the year, whereas weather refers to atmospheric conditions such as wind, rain, snow and sun. So it’s a pretty big difference.
In general, do you think people prefer to live in very hot places or very cold places?
That’s a good question, and I’m not all that sure, but I suppose most people probably prefer to live in very hot places, because for example, if you compare the number of people living in the far north of the country, where it gets extremely cold, to the southernmost part of the country, where it gets blazing hot, a lot more people live down south, at least as far as I know anyway. So I think this kind of shows that most people would rather choose a very hot place to live in as opposed to a cold place.
Blazing hot (phrase) very hot
Kind of (informal) rather, to some extent (often expressing vagueness or used as a meaningless filter)
As opposed to (phrase) in comparison with; instead of
In the future, what do you think will be some of the effects of global warming?
Well, from what I’ve seen and read, I think one of the likely effects will be a rise in sea-levels, due to the melting of the polar ice caps. Although I have no idea of how much they will actually rise – hopefully not a lot! So that’s one thing, and as well as this, I think what will also happen is that more rivers and lakes will dry up as a result of global warming, and this has already started happening in many parts of the world. So unfortunately, it looks like the effects will all be pretty adverse.
What do people do on rainy days and sunny days?
Actually it depends greatly on people’s interests. However, generally speaking, people would choose to stay at home and enjoy a good movie if it’s raining cats and dogs outside. On the contrary, they tend to ask their friends and organize a small camping trip or go out and participate in some outdoor activities if there is plenty of sunshine out there.
Rain cats and dogs (idiom) rain heavily
On the contrary (phrase) used for emphasizing that something is true, even though it is the opposite of something that has been said
Has climate change affected your country?
Yes, it has. Recently people have been going though erratic weather patterns over the last few decades. There are infrequent heatwaves and unpredictable floods, which have caused a great deal of damage to people in the central areas of the country. Besides, global warming is having a detrimental influence on my country as well. The temperature is getting higher thus decreasing the quality of lives of many people, especially those living in the South as it’s sometimes scorching hot that all people want to do is to stay home and turn on the air- conditioner.
Erratic (adj) not even or regular, unpredictable
Cause/Do damage to something (phrase) have a detrimental effect on
Scorching hot (phrase) very hot
