English Speaking Lesson – Summer Vocabulary  (Improve your English)


Hello everyone. I am Niharika, well it’s
a scorcher today as it means, it’s extremely hot. And probably you guessed it right. Today
we are gonna look at some summer vocabulary. Well, yes summers probably, it’s a many
people’s favourite season, not mine. However in summers its sunny, it’s hot. Many people
like to go to the beach and many people go on a holiday. But now in this lesson today,
we are gonna look at some summer vocabulary. So we are gonna begin with some adjectives
that would help you to talk about a hot day. Because in summer there are many days that
are extremely hot. So how would you talk about it? Well, that’s what we are gonna learn. So here in the black we have some adjectives and we are gonna begin with the word, Boiling.
So when it is extremely hot, rather than just saying, Oh it’s so hot today. Well, add
an adjective. You can say its boiling hot today, so boiling is, it means, it is extremely
hot. The next one is, Scorching. Now scorching is another adjective. You can say, it’s
a scorching weekend, so I’m not gonna step out of the house, but if you wanna use this
word as a noun then you would say, Scorcher. Like I said, it’s a scorcher today, it means,
it’s extremely hot today. So that’s the way, you would use this word. Then the third
one is Searing. Now searing is of course very hot and intense, pretty much similar to the
words that we learnt above, so searing is another adjective that you can use, when you
are talking about a hot day. So searing means hot and intense. Let’s look at the forth
word here Sweltering. Now sweltering is because of the heat, when you feel extremely hot and
you start sweating and you feel extremely uncomfortable too. Now of course, when it’s
hot and you’re sweating, you’re not gonna enjoy your day, you’re gonna be very uncomfortable.
So rather than just saying I’m sweating, it’s too hot. You can say, it’s sweltering
today, so sweltering means that it’s hot, you’re very uncomfortable, you feel a little
sick and you are sweating, you’re sweating and you’re very uncomfortable. Now you sweat
because of humidity, because when the air is extremely humid that’s when you sweat.
And what is humidity? For your information humidity is the water vapour that’s present
in the air that makes you sweat. Then here another word is, Stifling. Now stifling means
you are probably in a hot room or in a hot area and it’s too much of heat, so that
room is making you feel very uneasy and you know, you feel very suffocated because of
the heat, because of the hot air, so that is stifling. So you can say , Oh my god I
have to get out of this room. This room is extremely stifling, so which means that there’s
too much of heat in the room and you’re very uncomfortable and you get a little breathless,
you’re suffocated, so you wanna step out. So stifling means a hot room or a heated room.
That causes difficulties in breathing. And then the last adjective that I have for you
is, Roasting. I am roasted or, it’s roasting outside, you know I would suggest not to step
out. So roasting is used when the weather is hot, very hot. The sun is out and it’s
very hot and it’s very dry, so it’s hot and dry. Now in many cities or in many countries,
there’s not much of humidity and that makes the air very hot and dry. Many people do get
sun burnt also, because of the dry heat; it just hits your skin so bad that you are sun
burnt. So this is the right word to use, so there’s a difference between roasting and
sweltering. Now in sweltering people sweat and they feel very uncomfortable, because
of the heat, but when you use the adjective roasting. It means that it’s extremely hot
and the weather is very dry, there’s no vapour in the air, it’s very dry. So hope
these adjectives are helpful to you. Now let’s look at some words that would help you to
talk about the summer. So the first one is, Heat wave. Now what is a heat wave? Well,
heat, wave is a prolonged period of extreme high temperature, so the temperature is way
too high and it’s extremely hot and it’s accompanied by humidity or I would say prolonged
period of hot weather. So you know in summer, you face heat wave, it’s pretty common and
it’s not nice, because it’s very very hot. So heat wave there are few days in summer,
wherein the temperature are so high, it is so hot outside that, you really can’t even
step out. You just feel like jumping into the pool or you feel like just dipping into
a bucket full of ice, because of the heat wave. So it’s hot and of course, it’s
accompanied by humidity. So that’s heat wave for you. The next one is, Heat Stroke.
Now heat stroke is severe heat illness. It is
pretty much flu like condition, when you are
exposed to high temperature. In fact if you are exposed to temperature more than 40 degree
Celsius or 105 Fahrenheit, so there are chances that you would suffer from a heat stroke.
So because you are exposed to these high temperatures, you would fall sick and this kind of illness
needs immediate attention. So if you see someone suffering from a heat stroke, please help
that person, because it is a very severe heat illness. The third one is Sun Burn. Well sun
burn is wherein your skin turns pretty red, so it’s reddening of the skin, so it’s
reddening of the skin and in severe cases, because there are so many people, who are
exposed to these harmful UV rays, that’s the ultra violet rays, which are very harmful
to your skin. It damages your skin to that extent that you know, you form blisters on
your skin and I have come across some girls, who are so badly sun burnt that they have
blisters on their skin. So it’s not just reddening. In severe cases, you might also
damage your skin terribly. So that is sun burn. Now to protect yourself from getting
sun burnt, you end up using sunscreen lotions or sun screen creams. Which I will get to
that, but before going to this word, we will look at Sun Tanning. Sun tanning or just tanning.
It is a process of darkening your skin, especially for white people. They like to get a little
darkened. They like to darken their skin, so they end up going for sun bathing. So sun
tanning or tanning is a process of darkening your skin by exposing yourself to the sun
or in fact in today’s world we also have artificial sun tanning, which means that there
are tanning beds available in the market that helps you to darken your skin artificially.
But yes when the sun is out, people like to go sun bath and they like to darken their
skin, that is tan their skin. So that’s sun tanning for you, its darkening of the
skin. Now let’s get to the word, Sun Screen. You would always find sun screen and it’s
always written as SPF 15 or SPF 40, so these are the things that are written on sun screen
lotions or sun screen creams. And they are used on your skin to protect you from the
harmful UV rays. So its protection
from harmful, so this summer make sure that you invest in a good sunscreen lotion or a
cream, so that you protect your skin from those harmful UV rays and of course you will
not be sun burnt. So please do that and then the last one is, Shades or also called as
Sun Glasses. So that’s dark eyewear helps you to protect your eyes from the harmful
UV rays. So many people call it as shades or they call it as sun glasses, so it protects
your eyes from the harmful rays. So when you step out in the sun. You end up putting some
sunscreen lotion, you use your shades and of course you can also use a hat to cover
yourself from that hot sun. So these are some words that you can use for this summer, so
be prepared and enjoy the sunny days. I’ll be back with a new lesson. Till then you take
care.
