Yooyyaa! Gara sagantaa barnootaa How do I… tti baga nagaan dhufte! An Caaliidha. Shaanis naa waliin argamti.

Sian
And me, Sian. Hi everybody. Welcome!

Caalii
Kutaa kana keessatti waa’ee malawwan garaagaraa kan haala qilleensaa ittiin dubbannu ilaalla. Namoota waa’ee haala qilleensa har’aa dubbatan caqasuudhaan haajalqabnu. Ammaaf, dubbattoota keessaa kamtu gammadaa akka hinfakkaanne murteessi.

What's the weather like today?

  • It's really cold and rainy.
  • It's cloudy but it's quite warm outside.
  • Ugh, it's raining now.
  • It's really sunny and it's very hot today!

Caalii
Hmmm, an eessa ta’uu akkan barbaadu nan beeka! Ati eessa ta’uu akka feetu murteessiteettaa?
Waa’ee qilleensaa otoo hindubbatiin dura, akkamitti nama tokko 'Haalli qilleensa maal fakkaata? Jenne akka gaafannu haa hubannu:

Sian
OK, so we ask the question like this: 'What’s the weather like?' And it just means 'tell me about the weather today'. Let's practise the pronunciation. Listen again and repeat.

What's the weather like today?

Caalii
Egaa Shaan, waa’ee haala qilleensaa dubbachuuf qooqa itti fayyadamuu dandeenyu ilaalluu? We heard lots of adjectives – maq-ibsawwan - didn't we?

Sian
Yes! So we have adjectives to describe the weather and these are made with the noun plus the letter 'y'. Like, for 'rain' we can say 'it's rainy today'.

Caalii
Eeyyee, Kanaafu ‘rain’ ‘roobni’ maqaadha akkasumas maq-ibsa taasisuuf ‘y’ itti ida’uun ‘rainy’ roobaa ta’a. ‘It’s rainy today’.
Egaa amma jechoota duumessa -‘cloud’ fi aduu -‘sun’ jedhaniif maq-ibsa hojjechuu dandeessaa?
Akka sirrii taate hubachuuf irradeebinee haa caqasnu:

It's cloudy but it’s quite warm outside.
It's really sunny and it's very hot today!

Caalii
Eeyyeegaa, maq-ibsoota kanneen fayyadamuun haala qilleensaa har’aa - ykn walumaagalatti haala qilleensaa biyyakeetii ibsuu dandeessa. Gaalee ‘it’s’ jedhuun sanaan eegaluu hindagatin – ‘it's’ ‘it's cloudy, it's rainy, it's sunny’.

Sian
Now, let’s quickly practise the pronunciation together!
It’s rainy.
It's sunny.
It's cloudy.

Caalii
Tole egaa, haala qilleensaa maq-ibsootaan fayyadamuudhaan ibsuu dandeenya; haa ta’u malee ‘jechoota’ kan akka - amma roobuutti jira jechuu yoo barbaannehoo?
Can you remember? Let's listen to find out…

It's raining now.

Sian
That's right! So you can say ‘it's raining’.

Caalii
Baay’ee gaarii - Xumurarratti malawwan waa’ee ho’insaafi qorraa ittiin dubbannu dhageenye. So we have ‘ho’a – ‘hot’ fi qorra ‘cold’. Wayita ho’aa hintaaneefi qorra hintaane akkaataa ittii dubbatan yaadachuu dandeessaa? Irradeebinee haacaqasnu:

It's quite warm outside.

Sian
That's right – so 'warm' is comfortable – not hot and not cold. We can also say ‘it's cool’ which is closer to cold.

Caalii
Egaa, malawwan waa’ee ho’inaafi qabbana ykn qorraa ittiin dubbannuu tartiibaan qorrarraa gara ho’aatti mee waliin haacaqasnu. Listen and practise the pronunciation:

It's cold.
It's cool.
It’s warm.
It's hot.

Caalii
Amma malawwan babbareedoo fi waa’ee haala qilleensaa ittiin dubbattu baratteetta. Ammammoo yeroon kan shaakala itti gootuudha.
