A man came into a little village inn and sat down at a table near the window. It was war time, and food was hard to get.

«We’ve got only soup today, sir,» said the waiter to the man.
«ОК, bring me a plate of soup,» said he.

The waiter nodded and left the room. Soon he came back with a plate of soup. He put it on the table before the man and looked through the window, «It looks like rain, sir,» said the waiter.

The waiter was thinking of the weather, but the man was thinking of the soup, which he had just tasted. «Well,» he said, «and it tastes like rain, too.»

Text №2. Talking about Weather

In Britain, it is considered rude to ask personal questions. At the same time silence is also rude. So the weather is a very convenient topic ‘to fill the gap‘ (заполнить паузу).
  • on the Continent [kontinant]  — везде, кроме Британских островов
  • should it hail and snow — пусть идет град или снег
  • uproot — вырывать с корнем
  • fair chance — прекрасный шанс
  • to pass as  — сойти за, прослыть
  • witty — остроумный
  • sharp intellect [ʃɑːp ‘intilekt] — высокий интеллект
  • keen observation [ˌɔbzə’veɪʃ(ə)n — потрясающая наблюдательность

This is the most important topic in the land. On the Continent, people usually say, ‘He is the type who would discuss the weather with,’ to describe someone who is very boring. In England, this is an ever-interesting, even thrilling topic, and you must be good at discussing the weather.

There is a very important rule: you must never contradict anybody when discussing the weather. Should it hail and snow, should hurricanes uproot the trees from the sides of the road, and should someone say to you: ‘Nice day, isn’t it?’ — answer without hesitation: ‘Isn’t it lovely?’

Phrases For Good Weather
‘Lovely day, isn’t it?’ ‘Isn’t it beautiful?’ ‘The sun…’ ‘Isn’t it gorgeous?’ ‘Wonderful, isn’t it?’ ‘It’s so nice and hot…’ ‘Personally, I think it’s so nice when it’s hot, isn’t it?’

Phrases For Bad Weather
‘Nasty day, isn’t it?’ ‘Isn’t it dreadful?’ ‘The rain… I hate rain…»I don’t like it at all. Do you?’
‘Just think — such a day in July. Rain in the morning, then a bit of sunshine, and then rain, rain, rain, all day long.’

Learn these phrases by heart. If you are a bit slow in picking things up, learn at least one conversation, it would do wonderfully for any occasion. If you do not say anything else for the rest of your life, just repeat this conversation, you still have a fair chance of passing as a witty man of sharp intellect, keen observation and extremely pleasant manners.

Text №3. How to Predict Weather

  • tip — подсказка
  • to predict — предсказать

Here are some tips for weather prediction.

Watch animals. They are very sensitive to atmospheric pressure and they are very good as weather predictors. For example, insect-eating birds usually fly higher in good weather, but they often fly lower if a storm is approaching.

Watch a fire. If fire smoke rises steadily, the weather is going to be fine. If it turns or comes closer to the ground, a storm or snow is approaching.

Watch nature. When wet weather is on the way, sounds are heard more clearly. The smell of flowers and other plants becomes more distinctive before the arrival of rain. A grey evening sky means that rain is going to happen.
