   2014-10-24 10:29:46    hjenglish.com/CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Han

What is the most common subject people talk about when they have nothing to talk about?

当人们在冷场的时候,最常见的话题是什么?

The weather!

天气!

That’s right, for some reason when people want to start a conversation with a random stranger, the weather is generally such a natural topic to discuss. WHY IS THAT?

对!当人们希望与陌生人开始一段谈话时,天气是一个很自然有用的话题。但是,为什么呢?

Talking about the weather is such a great conversation starter because it is something that affects everyone around you. The weather can determine our mood (the way we feel), it can cause us to call off (cancel) appointments and events, and best of all for language learners, it can be a great ice-breaker(conversation starter).

天气是一个很好的开场白,因为它会影响到我们身边的每一个人。天气能够决定我们的心情(我们的感受),它能使我们取消预约或者其他活动。对于优秀的语言学习者来说,它也是一种打破冷场的很好的对话开场白。

The weather is not only a common subject of conversation in English, but we also have many popular expressions that involve it. These expressions are often used in everyday English and can really help you sound more natural and fluent.

天气不仅仅是英语里面常见的话题,同时我们也有很多涉及到天气的常用表达。这些表达在每天的生活中都会被用到,也能够帮助你听上去更加自然和流利。
