  • Hey, guys. I'm Alex, thanks for clicking.

    嗨!你們好,我是 Alex。

  • And man, it is really coming down out there.


  • So, today, you're lucky.


  • I've been inspired to talk about the rain with you guys today.


  • On the board, I have a lot of vocabulary, nouns, verbs, expressions, words associated with rain and talking about it.


  • So, first, we have, "Rain falls from the clouds."

    第一個:「Rain falls from the clouds (雨從雲裡下下來)」。

  • So, here's a picture of a cloud and the rain is falling.


  • Different things we say about the rain.


  • So you can say simply: "Oh, look. It's raining!"

    你們可以說:「喔!看看外面,It's raining (下雨了)!」

  • So "rain" can be a noun, like "rain falls," "rain."

    所以 rain 可以是名詞,就是 rain 加上 動詞 falls 下雨。

  • It can also be a verb, so: "It's raining."

    rain也可以是動詞,像是「It's raining (正在下雨)」。

  • You can say: "I love the rain." or "I hate the rain."

    你們也可以說:「I love the rain (我喜歡下雨天)」或是「I hate the rain (我討厭下雨天)」。

  • You can also just say in general, without the article "the": "I love rain.," "I hate rain." One or the other.

    通常,你們也可以不用冠詞 the,像是「I love rain (我喜歡下雨天)」或是「I hate rain (我討厭下雨天)」。

  • One or the other.


  • You can say: "It's gonna rain.," "It's going to rain."

    你們可以說:「It's gonna rain/ It's going to rain (要下雨了)」。

  • If you're making a prediction, you look at the clouds, it looks dark.


  • You can say: "Uh-oh. It's going to rain."


  • Very common phrase.


  • -"How is it outside?" -"Well, it's a little rainy."

    -「外面的天氣怎麼樣?」 -「嗯,It's a little rainy (有點在下雨)」。

  • So, you can use the term "rainy" to mean there is a little rain outside.

    所以,你們可以用 rainy 這個字形容外面有點下毛毛雨的情況。

  • And you can also talk about rainy days.

    你們也可以用 rainy 這個字形容外面有點下雨的狀況。

  • So: "I love rainy days, on rainy days, I love to stay inside, and read a book, watch a movie."

    像是:「我喜歡下雨天 (rainy days)。下雨天時,我喜歡待在家裡看書、看電影。」

  • Maybe you hate rainy days, because you want to be outside.


  • Now, when the rain gets very extreme, you have a storm.


  • So, this is when you can see lightning.


  • Here's a picture of a lightning bolt, and you can hear thunder.


  • So, lightning is the flash you can see; thunder is the sound you can hear.

    你們可以看到一道lightning (閃電) 發出來的閃光,而thunder (雷聲) 是一個你們會聽到的聲音。

  • And you might say: "Uh-oh, look, it's a thunderstorm."

    然後,你們可能就會說:「哦喔!看看外面,有雷雨 (thunderstorm)」。

  • So there is a thunderstorm outside.


  • Lots of thunder, lots of lightning, lots of rain.


  • So, obviously, when it rains, you need to bring an umbrella, so I have mine here with me today.

    當然,下雨時你們一定需要帶把傘,所以今天我有帶傘 (umbrella)。

  • And during a rainstorm, you also need a raincoat.

    在暴風雨中,你們也會需要一件雨衣 (raincoat)。

  • I don't have a raincoat.


  • I never thought to buy one really, I don't know.


  • A lot of people have raincoats.


  • And you can also wear boots or rain boots, because they are waterproof.

    另外,你們也可以穿雨靴 (boots/rain boots),因為他們可以防水 (waterproof)。

  • Now, "waterproof" is an adjective that you can use in many contexts.

    waterproof 是一個形容詞,可以在很多情況下用。

  • So, you can have a waterproof watch, right?


  • Waterproof boots, waterproof clothing, okay?


  • So, to protect you from the rain or from water in other situations.


  • Below, we have some more intermediate and advanced vocabulary related to rain.


  • So if you want to talk about the difference between light rain or heavy rain, here are some words and expressions you can use.


  • First, if the rain is light outside, it's possible to say: "It's drizzling, it's just drizzling." or, "It's just spitting."

    第一個,如果外頭只是毛毛雨,你們可以說:「嗯…下毛毛雨了 (drizzling),只是在下毛毛雨而已。」或是「只是在飄雨 (spitting)而已(spitting)」。

  • So, if you look at "spit," it's the same as the verb "spit," which is to go like this: ptoo

    你們看 spit 這個字,跟吐口水的動詞 spit 是同一個字。

  • Then, think of the rain like spitting down on you.


  • So you can say, "it's just drizzling." or "it's just spitting," okay.

    所以,你們可以說:「嗯…只是在下毛毛雨 (drizzling)」、或是「只是在飄雨而已 (spitting)」。

  • If it's very heavy, you can say: "It's pouring."

    如果是大雨,你們可以說:「It's pouring (傾盆大雨)」。

  • So, you can pour juice, pour milk, pour liquid out of a container, same idea.

    你們會倒 (pour) 果汁、牛奶、或是其他液態,一樣的意思。

  • It's pouring outside, or you can use the expression that I used when I first started the video.


  • "It is really coming down, like really coming down."

    「雨下得非常大 (coming down),感覺雨一直從天空降下。」

  • And when, you know, when you say "it," everyone understands you're talking about the rain, because when it's raining, most people know that it's raining outside.

    而且當你們說 it 時,大家都知道你們講的是雨,因為大多數的人都會知道外頭在下雨。

  • Unless you work in an office with no windows, and then I'm sorry.


  • So, if (it) the rain is very heavy and you didn't bring an umbrella, and you come inside and you have water on your clothes, on your shoes, on your face, everywhere.


  • You can also say: "I am drenched" or "I got soaked by the rain." Okay?

    你們也可以說:「我被雨淋濕了(get drenched / get soaked)」。

  • So, here's a causative sentence.


  • "I got drenched.," "I got soaked by the rain."

    「我被雨淋濕了 (get drenched / get soaked by the rain)」。

  • And here, if you're wondering what we call the little space of water, the little holes of water that appear after a rainfall, they are called "puddle."

    在這裡,你們可能會想,下完雨出現的小水坑要用什麼英文字,它們被稱為「puddle (水窪)」。

  • "Puddles," I'm sorry.


  • So: "Look at that huge, big puddle"—not poodle, which is the dog, but puddle, which is the water.

    所以,「看看那個非常大的水窪 (puddle)。」

  • Not poodle, which is the dog, but puddle, which is the water.

    不是貴賓狗 (poodle),而是puddle,指的是水。

  • So, just to review: "Rain falls from the clouds."

    讓我們來複習一下:「從雲落下的雨。 」

  • You can say: "It's raining."

    你可以說:「正在下雨 (It's raining)。」

  • "I love the rain."

    「我喜歡雨天 (I love the rain)。」

  • "I hate the rain."

    「我討厭下雨天 (hate the rain。)」

  • "It's a little rainy outside.," "I hate rainy days."

    「外面在下毛毛雨 (be a little rainy)」或「我討厭下雨天 (hate rainy days)」。

  • If the rain is light: "It's drizzling/spitting."

    如果是小雨:「在下毛毛雨 (drizzling/spitting)。」

  • If it's heavy: "It's pouring.," it's really coming down."

    如果是大雨:「正在下大雨 (pouring / coming down)。」

  • "I get drenched.," "I get soaked."

    「我被雨淋濕了 (get drenched /get soaked)。」

  • "Look at that puddle."

    「看看那個水窪 (puddle。)」

  • "Bring an umbrella.," "bring your raincoat.," "bring your boots."

    「帶把傘吧!(umbrella)」、「帶著你的雨衣 (raincoat)」、「帶著你的靴子 (boots)。」

  • And "stay dry," Okay?
