Find out what six people think about the rain and rainy days.


Marion, Ireland
         speaker    Well, in Ireland we always have a lot of rain. It tends to rain for most of the year so I’m quite used to rain, but it’s a soft rain, so I quite like the soft rain. I don’t like really, really hard rain that stops you from doing things. On a rainy day, I usually stay inside and if I’m in Ireland, I’ll curl up by the fire and read a really good book.

Kate, New Zealand

          speaker             On a rainy day, I just love to sleep in, until about 11 or 12 o’clock, because I can feel, I feel more calmer and I feel more relaxed, and then I might watch some TV, watch a movie with my friends at home, cook some popcorn, and generally for the whole day, we just relax at home.

Jeyong, Korea
speakerI don’t like rain and that’s because rainy days make me very sad and depressed so most of the rainy days I stay at home, not, I try not to go outside and at home I would just get a cup of coffee, turn on the air-conditioner, turn on the internet and chat with friends whose online.

Jeannie, America
           speaker               Ah,the rain! I like rain. I like the sound of it. I like being alone in my room and just looking outside at the rain. Sometimes I like to walk around in the rain, with or without umbrella, depending on my mood. I just feel really good about rainy days.

Barbara, Australia
        speaker                 How do I feel about the rain? Actually, I don’t mind rainy days at all. It’s fine by me to go out in the rain. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest. You can go for a walk in the rain. It can be quite romantic when you’re with someone you love. That’s a good thing. Actually, I prefer cooler weather to warm weather and if the rain is part of that, that’s no problem as far as I’m concerned.

Ruth, England
       speaker     Rain! I absolutely love rain. You know it always makes me laugh. People go outside and it starts raining and they start running like they’re going to catch a disease from the rain or something. I think it’s only water. I really love the rain. Obviously I like sun too. I think everybody likes the sun and I love snow but if I were asked what is my favorite weather, I would have to say the rain because I just love getting wet outside.
