PART 1: WEATHER
Question 1. What kind of weather does Vietnam has?
Vietnam has tropical climate, but it depends on the region. It means, in the north, there are four distinct seasons (eg: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), but in the South there are only two distinct seasons (dry and rain seasons)
Question 2. Does the weather affect your mood?
Yes. Definitely, On rainy days, I couldnot run my errands. If I am outside, I will be get soaked. When it rains without stopping, I often get down, you see.
In spring, the pleasant weather will make me happy, or it lifts my spirit. In Summer, It is often scorching hot , and what I want to do is go swimming and enjoy the breeze coming off the sea.
Question 3. Do people in Vietnam play the same sports in different seasons of the year?
No, in the spring and fall, the temperature is neither too cold nor too hot, Vietnamese people tend to go trekking or climbing . When summer comes, people can choose from a variety of physical activities such as swimming, camping in the woods, playing football on the beach, you name it. But in winter, it is not appropriate for outdoor exercises, so they prefer to stay at home for resting or lounging around.

PART 2 – DESCRIBE A BAD WEATHER EXPERIENCE YOU HAD
What: when it comes to weather, the first thing that springs in my mind is torrential rain in January last year.
When: I remembered it was pouring in my city, which is Ho Chi Minh City for a whole week and there was no telling when the rain was going to stop.
How: Then the rain seemed never stop, when I looked at roads, they became clogged and gridlock was very common, especially on that day. Easily, I could see a long line a people stocking up for food and other supplies. How awful it was! Normally, in spring, the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold, and sometimes it brings some intermittent showers and drizzles.
Why: (it is so memorable) However, the heavy rain on that day was unexpected. So I had to stay at home and I couldn’t go out to run my errands, which made me bored to death. So I got down in my dump, then I surfed Facebook and read book to kill the time. And you know, I hate= detest the heavy rain, as it always gets me a little bit filthy.

1/Do you think that weather affects people’s behaviour?
Well it certainly does. Most people would feel blue on gloomy or rainy days, some even get depressed or grumpy in long winters. For example, Nordic countries always report significantly higher suicide rate in the winter. In coping with that, people in these countries would take refuge from the cold season by going to tropical countries for vacation.
2/What jobs can be affected by different weather conditions?
Well, foremost, I’d say they are outdoor jobs. Construction worker is the most notable example of this type. Heavy rain or intensive heat can cause great suffering for these workers as well as hinder their workrate. But for me, the most vulnerable job before weather would be farmer. A drought or a flood, even minor one, strucken at the critital time, can decimate the crop, rendering them pennyless.
