then it’s raining, it’s windy and it’s snowing!
In summer, the temperature can be 14
degrees in the morning, then 20 degrees in
the afternoon. When you go out in Britain
you need to be ready for every type of

importanza. Poi, puoi scegliere le idee che ti
sembrano più rilevanti rispetto all’argomento su
cui vuoi scrivere.
