I hope you are well. Thank you for your last letter.
You asked me about the weather here in China. There are four seasons in
the year here—spring, summer, autumn and winter.
I think spring is the best season of the year. The weather gets warmer,
and the days get longer. In the fields everything begins to grow. Trees turn
green, and flowers start to come out.
Summer comes after spring. It is the warmest season. It often rains,
sometimes quite heavily. The crops grow very quickly. Many people love this
time of year, because it is good for sports. I often go swimming, sometimes in
a lake near my home, and sometimes in a river. I enjoy it very much.
Autumn is a busy season. The days get shorter and the nights get longer.
It is harvest time, and all farmers are busy. Often, we help them with the
harvest. Last month we helped them with the rice harvest. We really enjoyed
working on the farm.
The coldest season of the year is winter. Some people do not like winter,
but I like it. Sometimes it snows, and the land is all white. I like to make
snowmen, but I can't because the snow is so light.
How many seasons are there in your country? I hear it is cold all the year
round. There aren't four seasons, are there?
