There are four very distinct seasons (계절) in Korea are Spring (봄), Summer (여름), Autumn (가을) and Winter (겨울).
Today we'll learn some basic Korean words and phrases used in the summer season.
~ 봄이 지나고 벌써 여름이 왔어요. - Spring has passed and summer is already here.
So the weather (날씨) during summer is very hot (더워요) because of the immense heat (더위) and the temperature (온도) may reach it's highest.
You can say :
~ The temperature has risen to 45°C. - 온도가 45°C까지 상승했어요.
~ The weather is very hot these days. - 날씨가 요즘에는 너무 더워요. OR,
~ The weather has turned hotter. - 날씨가 더워졌어요.
Because of heat people may sweat (땀) and sit in front of the fan (선풍기) or air conditioner (에어컨) inside home.
After a few hot days. The temperature may fall down a little and country may experiences sudden shower (소나기) in between hot days because of which the humidity may increase.
