Dear Li Lei,
I hope you are well. Thank you for your letter. You said, "Happy Spring Festival!" So its spring in China now! Here in Australia it is nearly autumn. It is beginning to get colder. But it never gets really cold here.
You asked me when it was the best time to go to Australia. Australians will tell you any time is a good time! But many people think the best time is in summer. It gets very hot at that time of year. Some people say it gets too hot. But I like summer best.
In summer. I go swimming in the warm sea nearly every day. Its great. Swimming is very popular in Australia. The sea is very blue and very beautiful. Some people swim in the sea all the year round. But I dont swim in July and August. I think the sea is too cold.
All the best,

阅读理解二Why does the weather
never get too hot or too cold
In Britain the weather never gets too hot or too cold. There is not a great difference between summer and winter. Why is this?
Britain has a warm winter and a cool summer because it is an island country. In winter the sea is warmer than the land. The winds from the sea bring warm air to Britain. In summer the sea is cooler than the land. The winds from the sea bring cool air to Britain. The winds from the west blow over Britain all the year. They blow from the southwest across the Atlantic Ocean. They are wet winds. They bring rain to Britain all the year, so Britain has a lot of rainy weather. The west of Britain is wetter than the east. The winds must blow across the high land in the west.
