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…
