STEP 1 English people always talk about the weather
Read the dialogue. Then look at the words describing the weather and match them to their Italian translation.

Amir: Karen, can you help me understand the difference between drizzle and showers. I've been here in England for a couple of months but still don't get it.
Karen: Well, when there is a shower, it usually does not last very long and the raindrops are quite large and fall faster.
Amir: I see … and so drizzle is a lighter rain?
Karen: That's right. It's lighter and the drops are really small but it can last longer.
Amir: Thanks, Karen. I've also written down some other weather expressions which are still confusing. Two of these are balmy and chilly.
Karen: My dad always uses the word balmy! It's for nice days, when the sun is shining but it's not too hot.
Amir: Chilly has nothing to do with chili peppers, has it?
Karen: Nothing at all! It means very cold! Let's rush to class now and wear your coat. There's a gusty wind outside.
Amir: Gusty?! On no! Not another strange weather word!
Karen: It just means that it is strong and comes in separate blasts, Amir. Now, come on. We're late.
