South African seasons

I've been in South Africa since March. Wonderful time, marvelous weather. Now it's June. You won't believe me but I'm freezing here! "Why?" - you will ask. My answer is simple: It's winter here!

Well, outside it's still well above +15C and when I'm in my spring/autumn clothes, that I brought from Belarus, I feel fine. But at home... Brrr! Buildings here don't have central heating and their walls and window frames don't keep warmth at all, so it's v-e-r-y cold inside.

My best friend now is a heater that I had to buy. Now I'm thinking of getting a hot water bottle too: my African colleagues says she doesn't go to bed without one, and I can seed why.

One thing that warms my heart is that African winter isn't as long as ours. I do hope to see blossoming country in September.

About Author

Professionally speaking, by now I have... over 15 years of teaching English - to kids and adults, one-to-one and in groups, over 60 textbooks and supplementary materials for teaching and learning English - written and published, over 400 hours of teacher training sessions in 7 countries, over 100 blog posts for parents who help their children learn a foreign language. My lifestyle (in the past 6 years I've lived in 4 countries for at least one year) has led me into developing a new dimension for my teaching career: a trainer for parents [and teachers] who help kids learn a foreign language between classes. Visit my blog http://www.papalingua.com/ and see how easy and exciting it is to be a language partner to your kid, and a teaching partner to your kid's teacher.
