Topic – Summer:
Q. Is summer your favourite time of year? [Why/Why not?]
Answer: I like the summer season when it is not too hot, but I can not say that it is my favourite season because I like Autumn over any other season. During mild summer, which lasts for just a month or two, the weather is just perfect for outdoor activities and visiting beach areas. But the rest of the summer is too hot and too humid for my liking. In our country, the sun often shines mercilessly and the temperature reaches around 40 degree Celsius.
Q. What do you do in summer when the weather’s very hot? [Why?]
Answer: I am extremely lucky that I own a house that has air coolers, and I work in an office that has a central air conditioner. I even have my own car. So I can mostly avoid the fierce hot weather and stay cool indoors. Sometimes when I go out without the comfort of the car, I can feel the heat and perspire profoundly. This is extremely annoying but this is the reality for millions of people in our country. During summer, I try to drink plenty of water and go out during the evening time after the sunset to avoid direct sunlight.
Q. Do you go on holiday every summer? [Why/Why not?]
Answer: Yes, I enjoy holidays during the summer season, when I get one or two weeks’ leave from my office. I either choose a sea beach or a location near a river or a lake in summer to enjoy the view and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Q. Did you enjoy the summer holidays when you were at school? [Why/Why not?]
Answer: During my school days, the summer seasons were not as hot and humid as they are today, or at least this is what I think now! So I was not too concerned about the extreme weather during summer seasons back then. And of course, I loved the summer holidays as it meant a long leave from school, visiting grandparents’ house and doing fun activities with family and friends. Those were magical days.
