Lesson 48

1. Listen and read the dialogue. Act it out in pairs.

Jane: Do you like autumn, Buggy?

Buggy: No, I don’t. I think it’s a dull season.

The grass is yellow; the leaves fall off the trees. It often rains. It’s cold. No, I don’t like autumn. But I like winter and summer.

Jane: Do you? But why?

Buggy: Well, because the days are longer and warmer in summer, and we don’t have to go to school.

Jane: And why do you like winter, I wonder?

Buggy: Oh, you can have a very good time in winter, too. You can ski, skate, sledge, play snowballs.

The trees and the fields look wonderful in winter.

Jane: Well, I like spring and I like autumn, too. I enjoy the sun in spring, because it’s not very hot.

Buggy: But what do you like autumn for?

Jane: It’s a beautiful season — the trees are of different colours. And it is the tastiest (найсмачніший) season, you know. There are a lot of fruit and vegetables in autumn.

Autumn is another season, or as Americans call it — the fall. It is the time for the harvest. The fruit and vegetables are the tastiest in autumn. But it becomes colder and colder every autumn month. It is still warm in September, but it can even snow in late October. The leaves on the trees turn red and brown in October and then they fall in November. It often rains in autumn, sometimes it pours cats and dogs. The rain is usually cold and can last for several days. It is sometimes foggy in the mornings. The temperature is +5-10 °С.

The children don’t go out as often as in summer or winter, because it is wet and cloudy outside. But the nature is very beautiful in early autumn. People often call this season golden autumn.

The leaves are falling One by one.

Summer’s over School’s begun.

Leaves in the autumn came tumbling down,

Scarlet and yellow, russet and brown,

Leaves in the garden swept in a heap,

Trees got undressed ready for sleep.


September means its time again

for going off to school.

The days are getting shorter

and the nights are getting cool.


October’s the month

When the smallest breeze

Gives us a shower

Of autumn leaves.

Bonfires and pumpkins,

Leaves sailing down —

October is red

And golden and brown.


No sunshine, lots of rain,

No warm days, snow again!

No bugs or bees

No leaves on trees.

You must remember

This is November!
