1. What’s the best season of the whole year? / What sort of weather do you like the most?
I think summer is the best season of the whole year. For on hot summer days, I can drive all the way down to the beach with several good friends, drink beer by the seaside, and enjoy the beautiful sunlight. I just can’t think of anything better than that.
2. What do people normally do in that season?
Well, in summer, people often go swimming with their family members in the sea. Sometimes they’d also choose to spend their weekends somewhere in a mountain, trying to avoid the scorching sunlight.
3. What’s the weather usually like in your country/hometown?
I come from Chengdu, and the weather there is mild and humid all year around, featuring four clear-cut seasons - short and warm spring, long and sultry summer, cool and rainy autumn, and cold and foggy winter. The distinctive characteristics of Chengdu weather is foggy and humidity. There are fewer hours of sunlight per day, and the summer is hotter and the winter is colder than most of its neighboring provinces.
4. Would you say the weather in your hometown is suitable for working?
Well, not really. It’s usually hot and humid in summer and cold and foggy in winter in my hometown. Trust me, you just wouldn’t want to think of going out to work on days like that.
5. Would you like to move to a place with different weather?
Well to be honest, though the weather in my hometown is not that suitable for living, I’d still want to continue my life there after graduating from college. All my family members have long been dwelling in this place. I, as part of my family, also got deeply attached to it, and that’s reason why I choose to stay.
6. Has the weather in your country changed much over the past few years?
Compared to the past, the weather did have changed a lot over recent years. Well, it seems that the summer has been lasting longer than it did when I was little. Plus, the temperature during the whole year is also getting much higher. For example, in Suzhou, a city located in southeast China, the temperature can go up to 40 degrees Celsius in summer. Going out on hot days like that would be a torture to anyone.
7. Do you usually pay attention to weather forecasts?
Yes, I often check weather forecasts the moment I wake up in the morning, so as to decide what to wear for the day. I got couple of weather-related apps on my cell phone, keeping me informed about the temperature, humidity and wind forces of the day. I find them quite useful and like them a lot.

4.Do you think parks should be free of charge?
5.What do people in your country like to do in parks?
The park I visited and really liked when I was young is about five-minute walk from my home. Situated in the center of my community, it is actually a recreation place for all citizens living nearby. If you ever go around the blocks there, you won’t miss this park, because it is always packed with people.
The park, covering just a small area, is yet thickly wooded, with a lot of trees over a hundred years old. It is just fascinating to see that such a ‘tiny’ park could accommodate a beautiful lush green meadow, which I think, is probably the most refreshing part of the park. In fact, the park has several different looks at different seasons of a year, and it surpasses itself in beauty when spring comes because the blossoms of multicolored flowers are so stunning to see.
Since the first day I moved to this block with my family at the age of 12, we have made it our habit to go strolling after dinner in the park every day. The tranquil and peaceful environment in the park really is a good refresher for someone who has just lived through another tiring day of school, like me. As dusk arrives, street lights turn on, and the air gets quite cozy too. Here, let me paint a picture for you. You stroll along a path in a quiet park, enjoying the shading sunlight in sight and having a pleasant chat with your loved ones. Trust me, this is definitely going to wash away your tension and pressure.
Well, to be honest, I am not that type of people who are really into visiting parks, but it couldn’t have been better for someone who has survived yet another tiring day, like me, to take a walk in a peaceful park after dinner. Strolling along the garden-like walkways and appreciating the picturesque views with gentle breezes touching your cheeks is something highly enjoyable. Well, if you get lucky, you might even get to see how the sunset glow gradually tints the sky red. With all these beautiful park views in mind, my memories about it will always be peaceful and warm.
