Kate: I dislike1 winter. I can’t ski or skate and I am always cold in winter. The days are short and the nights are long. It is dark at 5 o’clock in the evening and my mother asks me to come home early. So I am always at home in the evening. You know, I like different colours: yellow, red, green, brown and blue, but I can only see white this time of the year. Winter is always white.

EVERYTHING IS GOOV IN ITS SEASON
There are four seasons in the year. Each of them brings different weather and different clothes. When it is hot people wear T-shirts and shorts, sports shoes, socks and sandals. Women wear light blouses and skirts. In summer people dress like this in Africa, Russia, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain and America.
In cold weather people usually put on warm clothes: jeans and trousers, sweaters and jackets, overcoats and caps. In winter they wear fur1 coats and fur caps, high boots and mittens or gloves. The proverb says: «There is no bad weather, there are bad clothes.»
Another proverb says: «Everything is good in its season.» Do you understand it? When you think what to wear, choose the right dress. Think what is good on the sports ground and
1 fur 1Гз: ] — мех; меховой
what is good at the party and why a long dress looks beautiful on a woman but is funny on a little girl.
When you buy clothes, try them on. Make sure that they are your size, that they suit you and that you like their colour.
