Discussing the Weather
Adam and John are friends at work. Adam calls John to see how his holiday in Spain is
Adam: Hi John! How’s it going on holidays? What’s the weather like in Spain?
John: Hi Adam! I’m having a brilliant time here! The weather has been fantastic since I
arrived! This is my first time in Spain, and I’m really impressed so far…
Adam: Great! You’ve been blessed with the weather then! It’s been pouring here for the last
two days. It’s so wet and miserable…
John: What a shame… but that’s typical weather for October in our country!
Adam: Yeah, I wish we had amazing weather all year round like you’re enjoying now - the
sun makes everything better!
John: You’re totally right - there’s no better feeling than waking to up to sunshine beaming
through the window and it just lifts your mood! That’s why I chose to spend my holiday in
Spain where the climate is completely different to ours. Here, I can enjoy sunny weather, and
even get suntan in autumn!
Adam: Lucky you! Enjoy your holidays!
John: Thanks! I’ll see you in a week at work…
