It is a sunny day today, isn't it?

It has been raining for days now, hasn't it?

What is the weather like in Chicago/New York/Toronto (over the phone or face to face with visitor)

目前在读一本书,"How to be a Brit", 作者George Mikes, 是一位旅居英国多年的匈牙利人,这本书非常幽默风趣,其中正好有一节谈英国人怎样谈天气,录在这里,以驳一笑:

THE WEATHER

This is the most important topic in the land. Do not be misled by memories of your youth when, on the Continent, wanting to describe someone as exceptionally dull, you remarked: 'He is the type who would discuss the weather with you.' In England this is an ever-interesting, even thrilling topic, and you must be good at discussing the weather.

EXAMPLES FOR CONVERSATION

FOR GOOD WEATHER

'Lovely day, isn't it?'
'Isn't it beautiful?'
'The sun ...'
'Isn't it gorgeous?'
'Wonderful,, isn't it?'
'It's so nice and hot ...'
'Personally, I think it's so nice when it's hot-- isn't it?'
'I adore it -- don't you?'

FOR BAD WEATHER

'Nasty day, isn't it?'
'Isn't it dreadful?'
'The rain ... I hate rain ...'
'I don't like it at all, do you?'
'Fancy such a day in July. Rain in the morning, then a bit of sunshine, and then rain, rain, rain, all day long.'
'I remember exactly the same July day in 1936.'
'Yes, I remember too.'
'Or was it in 1938?'
'Yes, it was.'
'Or in 1939?'
'Yes, that's right.'

Now observe the last few sentences of this conversation. A very important rule emerges from it. You must never contradict anybody when discussing the weather. Should it hail and snow, should hurricanes uproot the trees from the sides of the road, and should someone remark to you: 'Nice day, isn't it?' -- answer without hesitation: 'Isn't it lovely?'

Learn the above conversation by heart. If you are a bit slow in picking things up, learn lat least one conversation, it would do wonderfully for an occasion.

If you do not say anything else for the rest of your life, just repeat this conversation, you still have a fair chance of passing as a remarkably witty man of sharp intellect, keen observation and extremely pleasant manners.
