This week's podcast is all about idioms! Part of being fluent in the language is being able to speak with idiomatic expressions when they're appropriate. For example, when someone asks you "How are you?", don't always fall back to the old "I'm fine, and you?" Think of ways you can add variety to your language. For example, you could say "as right as rain". Today, Andrea and Olli teach you weather related idioms, and in doing so they touch on a cultural aspect that has to do with British people and the weather. Can you guess what it is? Show notes here.
