Helllo!

I have several questions all related to seasons? I have grammar doubts. Could you help me and correct me? Thank you.

1) In Argentina we have four seasons or In Argentina there are four seasons. Are both correct?

2) Don´t forget to pack things for winter.

3) Don´t forget to pack hot clothes. This one is wrong, but how would you correct it?

4) The leaves fall down of the trees. This one is wrong too. What should I say? "The leaves fall off the trees" or "The leaves fall down from the trees". This last one doesn´t sound correct either...

5) Pack a jacket for the cold (weather)..

6) These socks are vey hot. (the student meant that the socks were hot because it is summer and they are made of strong material).

Thank you for your help. I appreciate it !

Hi,

I have several questions all related to seasons? I have grammar doubts. Could you help me and correct me? Thank you.

1) In Argentina we have four seasons or In Argentina there are four seasons. Are both correct? Yes.

2) Don´t forget to pack things for winter. OK

3) Don´t forget to pack hot warm clothes. This one is wrong, but how would you correct it?

4) The leaves fall from down of the trees. This one is wrong too. What should I say? "The leaves fall off the trees" or "The leaves fall down from the trees". This last one doesn´t sound correct either...

5) Pack a jacket for the cold (weather).. Both OK

6) These socks are very hot. (the student meant that the socks were hot because it is summer and they are made of strong material). OK

Thank you Clive ! You helped me A LOT !!!!

Last question. About 5, when you say both are ok, do you mean with or without the word "weather"?

Thanks again! Soprano

Hi,

Yes.

And, can I say "don´t forget to pack a pair of hot trousers?"

Thank you again
Hi,

can I say "don´t forget to pack a pair of warm hot trousers?"

warm trousers - Good for cold weather

hot trousers - Sounds like they make you uncomfortable. Perhaps they make you sweat. Better take them off and put on lighter ones that make you feel more comfortable.

trousers - British English

pants - American English
