Vocabulary lesson / lección 2: In this class we will talk about the weather and how to describe it. We will learn how to use the question: “What is the weather like?”

Vocabulary Weather

Before we start it is important to study what question we use to ask for any type of description in English. In this case we would refer to the weather but this question is used to ask about any type of description.

The question is the following:

What is the weather like?

What –> Question word ; Is–> verb (to be) ; the weather–> Subject ; like –> preposition

Note: Like is also a verb (gustar) but for descriptions it is a preposition (como)

Entonces entendemos que esta pregunta: “What is the weather like?” no tiene nada que ver con el verbo gustar. Esta pregunta se usa para preguntar sobre la descripción de algo (en esta lección, el clima) La pregunta se entiende como: ¿Cómo esta el clima? Es confuso puesto que como es how tambien en ingles pero como siempre digo, UNO TIENE QUE APRENDERSE LAS ESTRUCTURAS EN INGLES.

Es decir, like significa gustar (verbo) y también como (de comparación).

Ejemplo: (de like -> como y no gustar)

Jorge is likehis father.
Jorge es
comosu papa.

Remember that the subject “the weather” changes depending on what you want to ask for to be described

Examples:
What is Sonia like? — What is Fabiola like? —- What are they like? —- What are you like?
