In this free lesson, you will learn how to speak about the weather in Spanish. The best thing you can do to reach conversational fluency in Spanish is to actually speak Spanish with other people (surprise!). It is important to use the few phrases and words that you have learned quickly so you won’t forget them. Implementing what you have learned will help you maintain fluency. Don’t worry though, there are many ways you can implement the language you are learning no matter where you live. Some ways to practice and maintain a language are:
Regular lessons with your personal Rype coach
Watching more free classes from Rype
Watching Spanish movies and shows
Reading Spanish books and magazines (if you are a beginner you could read books for younger children, or reread books you already know the plot of so you aren’t completely lost.)
Listening to Spanish songs
When you are first starting out, you probably won’t be able to lead a heated discussion about politics or other complex subjects quite yet, but it is just as effective for your learning process to speak about simple topics, such as the weather.
So let’s get started with today’s lesson so that you don’t wear jeans on an 80° day or forget your umbrella when it is pouring down rain.
En/ How is the weather?
Sp/ ¿Como está el clima?
¿Qué tiempo hace?
¿Qué tal está el clima?
To describe the weather in Spanish you use the verb “hacer” which means “to make” or “to do”.
En/ It’s cold
Sp/ Hace frío
En/ It’s snowing
Sp/ Está nevando
En/ It’s hot
Sp/ Hace calor
En/ It’s sunny
Sp/ Está soleado
En/ The weather is bad/good.
Sp/ Hace mal/buen tiempo.
En/ It’s raining
Sp/ Está lloviendo
Now that you have described the weather in general, you can express how you feel. You can do this using the verb “tener” which directly translates into “to have.”
En/ I am (very) cold.
Sp/ Tengo (mucho) frío.
Sp/ ¡Qué frío!
En/ I am (very) hot.
Sp/ Tengo (mucho) calor.
Sp/ ¡Qué calor!
The topic of weather comes up everyday whether it be in the morning news, or among conversation with friends. It is important not to skip the fundamentals of a language before moving on to more complex subjects and vocabulary. Want to implement what you learned right away?
