Difficulty: 0

let's learn how to correctly pronounce

some difficult English words related to

the temperature and the weather talking

about the weather is such a common topic

we talk about the weather in social

situations and even with strangers for

example in the supermarket there are

some difficult English words related to

talking about weather and maybe you make

these mistakes too but after we learned

these words we will practice saying them

in natural sounding sentences the first

word is thermometer that's a difficult

word to say be careful we have the word

meter we stress the first syllable me

meter but we don't say thermo meter it's

very different it's thermometer

thermometer we have some other similar

sounding words that have the word meter

in them we have speedometer that tells

you how fast your car is going Oh dah

meter that tells you how many miles or

how many kilometers you've traveled and

you notice I didn't say kilo meter

I said kilometer kilometer be careful in

all of those words the O is pronounced

as an AA thermometer kilometer

speedometer odometer but of course

remember we say meter the next word is

temperature temperature we don't say

temperature it's not four syllables it's

only three syllables and we stressed the

first one also that tu R is pronounced

as sure sure it's not tore other

similar-sounding words are nature

picture future creature moisture

remember it's sure temperature some

people pronounce the R some people say

temperature temperature and some people

don't pronounce the R and they simply

say temperature it's more proper to say

temperature but not everybody does it

many people just say temperature which

instrument do you use to measure the

temperature you use a thermometer the

next two words are related to how we

describe

the temperature depending on where you

live in the United States we use a

different measuring system from most of

the rest of the world probably in your

country you say Celsius that's a

difficult word to pronounce we're going

to say sell see us and we will stress

the first syllable Celsius if you tell

an American it was thirty five degrees

they will think it was cold because

thirty five degrees in Fahrenheit is

completely different and Fahrenheit is

what we use in the United States let's

pronounce that Fahrenheit Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit Fahrenheit so thirty five

degrees Celsius is actually ninety five

degrees Fahrenheit and when it's 95

degrees Fahrenheit or 35 degrees Celsius

how do we keep the house cool

we use an air conditioner air

conditioner we stress the first syllable

an air conditioner is one unit but if

we're talking about a building that has

a whole system or maybe a house that has

a system installed

that's called air conditioning air

conditioning I hope they have air

conditioning in that hotel and if you

want to say it is an adjective you can

say air conditioned I hope the hotel has

air conditioned rooms

I hope the rooms are air conditioned

let's stress the first word air

conditioned and often people just say

the AC the AC please turn on the AC you

don't have to say please turn on the air

conditioner you can say please turn on

the AC and maybe you know that Americans

love air conditioning and when Americans

travel they frequently complain that

it's not cold enough inside and if you

travel to the United States you might

feel cold all the time

because the air conditioner is turned on

a lot and now let's practice talking

about the temperature in the following

sentences listen and repeat what's the

temperature today what's the temperature

today

it's 90 degrees Fahrenheit today and

notice in American English we don't say

90 we say 90 that T Y is actually

pronounced as dy 90 let's say that again

it's 90 degrees Fahrenheit today number

three what's the weather forecast for

tomorrow weather forecast is a compound

noun so we stress weather what's the

weather forecast for tomorrow it'll be

35 degrees Celsius which is 95 degrees

Fahrenheit and let's say it'll be it'll

be and let's say 95 we don't say 95 we

say 95 95 degrees Fahrenheit number five

would you mind turning off the AC it's

freezing in here

we don't say that AC we say V AC and we

stress see more than a the AC and it's

freezing in here is another way to say

it's very very cold in here it's

freezing let's say that again would you

mind turning off the AC it's freezing in

here number six

I work in an air-conditioned building

and in this sentence there are many

things to link in an air-conditioned all

of these can be connected in an

air-conditioned let's say that again in

an air-conditioned building

I work in an air-conditioned building

and number seven we place the outdoor

thermometer in the backyard to measure

the temperature we're going to say

backyard and we stress yard in the

backyard and outdoor thermometer is

another compound

noun so let's stress outdoor outdoor

thermometer and we connect the and

outdoor we say the outdoor we don't say

the because outdoor begins with a vowel

sound the outdoor and let's say the

whole sentence again we place the

outdoor thermometer in the backyard to

measure the temperature if this video
