Ep. 64 Five Weather Terms In English You Didn't Know
Speaking about the weather in English is a common topic of conversation, and this video will help you take it to the next level.  Some of the terms I explain are: muggy, humid, hazy, frigid, foggy, "thick as pea soup," and an easy one, foggy.   I also talk about the terms "hone in" and nuance.   I briefly discuss the past conditional tense, and give you two sentences that would be great for shadowing.   Link to the Facebook page: https://tinyurl.com/tslpash  Podcast Link: https://tinyurl.com/w6jlf3u  Link to other playlists that might be helpful:   English Field Trips: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZJxW7kBsjp9O8DIb-35wuOSEeP4eVt1Z  Videos in which my wife, Jamie, has appeared in: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZJxW7kBsjp-AvQAfnNsc1n7QCNs3Cm2u
