After rain comes fine weather

Урок 1. Английский язык 8 класс ФГОС

Погода в Великобритании — это тема для ежедневных шуток и обсуждений. У иностранцев вообще сложилось устойчивое мнение, что страна постоянно окутана туманом. Но это не так. С тех пор, как британцы перестали топить печи в домах углём и перешли на газ, смог над городами рассеялся. Тем не менее, погода в Великобритании очень переменчива: дождь и солнце могут сменять друг друга в считанные минуты, так что, выходя на прогулку, не забудьте прихватить зонт. В этом уроке учащиеся знакомятся с лексикой по теме, а также словами и фразами для выражения своего положительного или отрицательного отношения к погоде.

Конспект урока "After rain comes fine weather"

Weather is the best start of communication in the UK. Maybe it is because weather is so changeable on the British Isles that British people used to say that they have weather, not a climate. And there are a lot of poems about the weather and climate.

This is my favourite one:

Whenever the weather is cold,

Or whenever the weather is hot,

We'll be together whatever the weather,

whether we like it or not.

Whenever the weather is hot,

Or whenever the weather is cold,

We'll be together whatever the weather,

Whether we're young or we're old.

Whenever the weather is good,

Or if ever the weather be bad,

We'll be together whatever the weather

Whether we're happy or sad.

Whenever the weather is cold,

Or whenever the weather is hot,

We'll be together whatever the weather,

whether we like it or not.

Whenever the weather is hot,

Or whenever the weather is cold,

We'll be together whatever the weather,

Whether we're young or we're old.

Whenever the weather is good,

Or if ever the weather be bad,

We'll be together whatever the weather

Whether we're happy or sad.

After reading that poem you have already known that the weather can be cold, hot, good or bad. Let’s look at other types of weather.

It can be: rainy/stormy/snowy/cloudy/sunny/cloudy and sunny.

If we look at thermometer we can say that it’s hot or warm outside or cold, sometimes to describe extremely cold weather we can say ‘freezing’ or ‘chilly’.

You should notice the signs ‘fog’ or ‘ice’ on the road and be especially careful if you are driving a car.

Some more examples of weather are here:

-                     when rain drops and snowflakes fall down together we call it ‘sleet’;

-                     when you can see small but rather heavy icy snowballs falling down from the cloud instead of mild and soft snowflakes, we call it ‘hail’;

-                     myriads of tiny droplets of water in the air, which actually looks like fog, we call ‘mist’; when it’s misty outside you can see better, while in fog, when it’s foggy, you can see nothing;

-                     and also after the rain sometimes we can see a rainbow.

There are some more horrible examples of really bad weather. Look. Thunderstorm. We can see lightning and hear thunder. One even much worse example of terrible weather is tornado.

To describe all kinds of weather we use adjectives.

To say about the weather that we like will use such words as: good, great, nice, fine, lovely, beautiful, wonderful, excellent, gorgeous, pleasant; or opposite to say about the weather we don’t like at all, we’ll say bad, awful, terrible, nasty, lousy, foul, rotten, miserable, unpleasant, dull;

British people talk about the weather all the time because it changes all the time. The weather is seemed to be a kind of a national obsession. As weather is an absolutely neutral topic of conversation, it's usually safe to use it to strike up a talk – at the bus stop, in a shop, or with a neighbour over the garden fence. Let’s look how we can start a dialogue:

Lovely day! –Хороший день!

It’s turned out nice. –Опять стало ясно!

It’s tipping down! –Такой сильный дождь!

It’s a bit chilly. Wrap up. – Немного морозит, одевайся теплее.

Terrible weather, isn’t it? –Ужасная погода, не правда ли?

What's the forecast for this day? – Какой прогноз на сегодня?

It’s chucking it! – Льет, как из ведра!

It’s 5 degrees below zero. –5 градусов ниже нуля.

Let’s learn how to answer!

Lovely day! – At least it’s not too hot.

It’s turned out nice. – This is very changeable weather with a high chance of rain.

It’s tipping down! – Nice weather, isn’t it?

It’s a bit chilly. Wrap up. – The air is clean and crisp.

Terrible weather, isn’t it? –It’s cold and dark all the time.

What's the forecast for this day? – Cloudy and windy day’s coming up.

It’s chucking it! – I just hate the rainy season!

It’s 5 degrees below zero. – In winter it reaches minus 35 degrees.

Well, I offer you to learn what the weather is like in Britain today. I’m going to call one of my friends and to ask him about the weather.

- Hi, Luke. How's the weather this morning in Cambridge? What’s the temperature?

- In the morning I think a first thing we are looking at 12 or 13 Celsius, maybe 14 Celsius.

- What's it like outside? What weather will be in the daytime?

- The big story today probably can be the gusty winds in this afternoon. Maybe just a small chance of an isolated shower up and round washing. Well, and some of those showers could contain some hail and thunder in them.

- Wow, pretty cold. And what about the weather forecast for tomorrow?

- And for tomorrow on Wednesday it’s another rather blustery day’s coming up with sunny spells. It won’t be as windy as today. High temperatures 11 to 13 Celsius.

- Thanks, Luke.

- Thank you.

Well, whenever the weather is cold, or whenever the weather is hot, wonderful or miserable, awful or pleasant, we must know that there is no bad weather, there are bad clothes.
