Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Christmas may be over, but winter still has a firm grip on most of the Northern Hemisphere.

If, like me, you’re sitting by the fire and waiting for spring, how about getting some mind work done by learning some words and phrases appropriate to the season?

Talking about the weather

The weather is a common topic in Ireland (as they say, if you don’t like it, wait ten minutes… it will change!). Here are some ways to talk about wintery weather in Irish (Bitesize Grow and Explore members will also want to take a look at our lessons on the weather in Module 9 of the beginner’s course Tús Maith).

What season is it?

What kind of a day is it?

Insert the appropriate word into the sentence below:

What’s it doing?

What do you think about it?

Insert the appropriate word into whichever sentence suits you:

What would you rather be doing?

You know the drill:

Or, if you’re like me:

Stay warm, everybody!

  1. The more time I spend reading the daily emails the easier it is for me to read posts like this and more quickly assimilate the information. I like how these phrases are relevant and provide context (and a little humor…). Keep it coming.
