  • Hi, is it hot enough for you?


  • That's one of the phrases we use in English to jokingly talk about hot weather.


  • Right now, in Ontario, Canada, we're in the middle of a heat wave.


  • It's going to be over 30 degrees for about three or four days straight, and we call that a heat wave.

    接連三、四天的氣溫都會超過 30 度,我們稱之為熱浪。

  • I know for some of you, that probably sounds like really nice weather, but for us here in Canada, that's very, very warm.


  • So, right now, I thought it would be a great time to make a lesson about how to talk about hot weather in English.


  • Well, welcome to this English lesson where I'm going to help you learn how to talk about hot weather in English.


  • The sun is kind of beating down on me right here, and it certainly is a hot day.


  • Usually, I'm inside, working on my computer in the air-conditioned house, and Jen is outside, working in the heat of the day on the farm.

    通常,我會在開著空調的室內用電腦工作,而 Jen 則在室外、炎熱的農場裡工作。

  • And sometimes she'll come in and she'll say, "Wow, it's a hot one out there."

    有時她會進來跟我說:Wow, it's a hot one out there(哇,外面真是炎熱的一天)。

  • This is a very common phrase in English.


  • When someone comes in from the outside and has experienced extremely hot weather and wants to tell someone else that it's hot,


  • you will often hear English speakers come into a nice air-conditioned place and say to someone else, "Wow, it's a hot one out there."

    你經常會聽到英語母語人士走進一個有空調的舒適室內並對別人說:Wow, it's a hot one out there。

  • Another phrase we use in English to describe a hot day is to say, "It's a scorcher," or we might say, "It's a real scorcher."

    我們在英語中用來描述炎熱天氣的另一個短語是 It's a scorcher,或者我們可以說 It's a real scorcher。(真是炎熱的一天。)

  • It's certainly a real scorcher today.


  • The sun is very intense, and it's also a little bit windy, which is a good day for making hay.


  • There is another English phrase, "You need to make hay when the sun shines."

    還有一個英文勇與:You need to make hay when the sun shines(你得在出太陽時曬乾草)。

  • If you look across the river here, you can see that my neighbor is starting to make hay.


  • I'll get another little clip to show you in a sec.


  • But because it's a real scorcher today, the hay is drying quickly and it's a great day to bale some hay.


  • Another phrase we might use on a day like this is to say, "It's a cooker," or, "It's a real cooker."

    在這樣的日子裡,我們可能會使用的另一個短語是 It's a cooker,或者 It's a real cooker.。(真是很熱)

  • If you look behind me, you can see some of these plants are starting to wilt a little bit.


  • "It's a cooker out here today."


  • It's like they're being cooked in the sun.


  • The sun is so hot that the plants can't take up water fast enough.


  • So, if you wanna describe a hot day where you see plants wilting, you could say, "It's a real cooker."

    所以,如果你想描述一個炎熱的日子,你看到植物枯萎,你可以說 It's a real cooker。

  • Another similar phrase that we use to talk about hot weather is to say, "It's baking hot."

    我們用來談論炎熱天氣的另一個類似短語是 It's Baking hot(熱得像在烤箱一樣)。

  • It's baking hot out here today, and I'm happy that I'm in the shade.


  • You'll notice sometimes we say "cooking hot" and "baking hot".

    你會發現我們有時會說 cooking hot 和 baking hot。

  • We often use the same terms we use for cooking and preparing food to talk about hot weather.


  • So, once again, I'm really happy to be in the shade of this tree because it's baking hot out there in the sun.


  • Oh, and just for a quick review, that is my "shadow", and under the tree there is "shade".

    哦,快速回顧一下,那是我的 shadow(影子),樹下有 shade(樹蔭)。

  • That's my "shadow", that is "shade".

    這是我的 shadow、那是 shade。

  • We also sometimes just say, "It's boiling outside," or, "It's a boiling hot day today."

    我們有時會單純說:It's boiling outside 或 It's a boiling hot day today(熱到像滾燙的水)。

  • We use the word "boiling" to describe the hot day.

    我們用 boiling 這個詞來形容炎熱的天氣。

  • You could also use this to describe yourself.


  • If you were really hot, you could say, "Oh, I'm boiling today," or you can say, "I'm just boiling up today."

    如果你感到真得很熱,可以說:Oh, I'm boiling today 或是 I'm just boiling up today。

  • And you do know what boiling is, right?

    你知道什麼是 boiling,對吧?

  • When you put a pan on the stove with water in it, eventually the water will boil, or maybe if you put a kettle on for tea, eventually the water will boil.


  • So, again, we do use a lot of the same words and phrases that we use in the kitchen when talking about cooking and baking to talk about hot weather.


  • So, it's definitely boiling hot out here today.


  • So, I don't have a sidewalk to show you, because I live out in the country, so I'll have to put a picture of one up here.


  • But sometimes, in English, when it's really hot, we'll say, "It's so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk."

    但有時,在英語中,當天氣真的很熱時,我們會說:It's so hot you can write an Egg on the sidewalk(熱到可以在人行道煎蛋)。

  • Now, of course, we're exaggerating; I don't think it ever actually gets that hot.


  • But there are certainly some days in the summer where people probably wonder, "Is it hot enough that I could fry an egg on the sidewalk?"


  • Because if you walk on a sidewalk with bare feet in the summer, it certainly is really, really hot.


  • So, we talked about using cooking and baking to talk about hot weather.


  • We also say things like this, "It's like an oven out there," or, "It's an oven out there."

    我們也這樣說 It's like an oven out there 或 It's an oven out there(外面像個烤箱一樣)。

  • I know a few weeks ago, we had a heat wave as well, and I came in and I was "sweating buckets".

    我知道幾週前,我們也經歷了熱浪,我進來時正 sweating buckets。

  • When you're "sweating buckets", you're just sweating a lot.

    當你說你 sweating buckets,就是大汗淋灕。

  • And I said to Jen, "It's like an oven out there."

    然後我跟 Jen 説:It's like an oven out there。

  • It was so hot.


  • I think on that day it was 33 degrees Celsius.

    我想那天的氣溫是攝氏 33 度。

  • That's a little too hot for Bob the Canadian.

    那對加拿大人 Bob 來說有點太熱了。

  • We sometimes describe a hot day by saying, "It's burning hot."

    我們有時會用 It's burning hot 來形容炎熱的一天。

  • "It is burning hot today."


  • On a burning hot day, things like the steering wheel on my tractorbecause they are blackget hot to the touch.


  • When I touch the steering wheel, I feel like I should go put gloves on, because the steering wheel is hot to the touch.


  • On a burning hot day, if I was to say that today is burning hot, things like my steering wheel get really, really hot to the touch.


  • When we talk about hot days, besides heat, there's also "humidity".

    當我們談論炎熱的天氣時,除了炎熱,還有 humidity(濕度)。

  • "Humidity" is water moisture in the air and it can make it kind of uncomfortable.

    Humidity 是空氣中的水分,它會使人感覺不舒服。

  • Because I live close to the Great Lakes, and because there are lots of bodies of water in Ontario, we have very humid weather in the summer.


  • So it's just very "muggy" and "sticky".

    所以它非常 muggy(悶熱)且 sticky(黏)。

  • Those are two more words we use to describe a hot day when the humidity is really high.


  • "It's kind of a muggy day today."

    It's kind of a muggy day today(今天有點悶熱)。

  • "It's a very sticky day today."

    It's a very sticky day today(今天有點黏)。

  • It's just not very enjoyable.


  • And then there's a little phrase we say jokingly to each other on a hot, muggy day.


  • We'll sometimes say, "You know, it's not the heat, it's the humidity."

    我們有時會說:You know, it's not the heat, it's the humidity(不是熱氣,是濕氣)。

  • And it's just kind of this funny phrase that we use to bug each other or to make each other smile or laugh when we're talking about days like this one,


  • where the humidity is really high and where the temperature is reaching almost 34 degrees Celsius.

    這裡的濕度非常高,溫度幾乎達到攝氏 34 度。
