Vocabulary: we’re freezing!

The weather is always referred to in conversation. Many expressions deal with "heat" and "heatwaves", but many are dealing with "the cold" too.

They'll be studied in this lesson.

How to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius: T(°C) = T(°F) - 32) / (9/5) => T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / 1.8
How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit: T(°F) = T(°C) × 9/5 + 32 => T(°F) = T(°C) × 1.8 + 32

A few corresponding measures OF TEMPERATURES:

- 10°F= -23.33 °C/ 0°F= -17.78°C/ 32°F= 0°C50°F= 10°C/ 60°F= 15.56°C/ 80°F= 26.67°C/ 100°F= 37.78°C/ 212°F= 100°C...

A few usual temperatures... 19°C = 66.2°F // 25°C= 77°F // The temperatures of the body: from "36.5°C  to 39.5°C = 97.7°F to 103.1°F.

As soon as the temperatures are no longer usual, our body is suffering and being jeopardised. In the test test , we had seen how the body reacted to very high temperatures. In this lesson, we'll learn the vocabulary dealing with the cold, when the body has to be covered and protected, insulated from the cold.

In these times of very high temperatures, it was very pleasant to deal with cool words and expressions...   In the meantime, no matter how hot or cold the weather might be when you face this test, I give you THE FORCE!
