Talking about weather in Spanish

Talking about weather in Spanish will be easier if you have the vocabulary you need!

An advantage is that all of the nouns and verbs used for this purpose are the same across Latin America and Spain. That means you can use them knowing that you will always be understood!

In such a rich language as Spanish, that’s not something that always happens. You can read the list of clothes in Spanish as an example of the variations among the different Hispanic countries.

This vocabulary is also useful for small talk, to start a conversation or when you don’t know what else to talk about, so you had better learn it, haha!

Are you ready? Let’s go!
