Did you know that in English we have an expression which goes like this:
April showers bring May flowers.
This means that all of the rain in the month of may will result in lots of flowers growing in May. Interesting? Well, the main point of this lesson is about rain. Many people who study English have learned the idiom, “It’s raining cats and dogs” which means, “it’s raining very hard.” The truth is, that is a very old expression and we don’t really use it very much, at least not in American English. What we do say, and what you can say in this situation is, “It’s pouring”
Please add this expression to your everyday conversation and leave the “pets” in your notebook ! Is it pouring where you are today?
