Lights out! Guess what the weather is like!

Today's lesson is about weather vocabulary. You're going to see six meteorological conditions but things aren't so simple. You will see a torch flickering on the screen, lighting sections of the picture, you can move it up and down, to the left and to the right. That way, you will see more and more. Click on the two sizes of magnifying glass to decide how powerful your light is. If you think you know what the picture shows or if you just give up and want to see it, click on the lightbulb to turn the lights on. You can turn them off by clicking on the bulb again. The time is now, give it a try.
