Elevate your IELTS weather vocabulary

A high-level way to talk about the weather is to talk about how it makes you feel. Don’t just learn single vocabulary words.

Learn phrases and structures that will help you be more descriptive for the Examiner.

This kind of skill will get you that 9 that you are striving for.

  • “It makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good book.”
  • “It makes me want to hunker down inside with some popcorn and movies and just relax.”


When it comes to preparing for IELTS Speaking Part 1, you need to be ready to immediately impress the Examiner.

Weather is a topic that comes up all of the time so it would be a smart use of your time to learn some of these words and phrases.

Go beyond just the words and learn the phrases to describe a feeling that the weather creates.
