M: Good evening, everyone. Welcome to our environmental protection club. It’s a pleasure to see many new faces here. I’m Mike Johnson, president of this club. Our club was set up in 1992 and the aim of the club is to make our life greener, so every member of this club is supposed to take some actions to protect our environment. We will have different activities to achieve our aim. As for the first month this term, we are going to do three things. On Friday afternoon this week all members are supposed to plant trees in the East Park. The next day, Jack Smith, professor of environmental science, will give us a lecture. Besides we may visit a farm nearby next Sunday if weather permits. Usually we have meetings on Mondays, but this week we’ll have another one on Wednesday to discuss the arrangements in detail.
M: And now the weather forecast for other parts of the world. First, let’s take a look at Europe. As you can see from the weather map, tomorrow will be another warm day generally in all parts of the Continents. Here is the forecast for some selected cities. The sky of Paris is clear and it’s 23 degress centigrade. A nice day for an outing. In Berlin, Germany, the temperature is warm, 18 degrees, the sun is shining. Rome warm enjoys the sunshine for a third day with a high temperature of 26 degrees. It’s raining in the dried Spain, but it’s not cold. The temperature is 20 degrees. Well, in London the rain finally stops but it’s quite windy, the temperature is 17 degrees. Well, that’s all for Europe. Now let’s move to Asia.
