Hello Eva,

Thank you very much for posting!😄
So it will be autumn soon I guess :thumbsup: Please let me correct some small little mistakes that I found.

“Draußen ist windig, kühl und bewölkt anfangen September im der Midwest.” should be “Im Mittleren Westen ist es Anfang September windig, kühl und bewölkt”.

I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have questions!

Kind regards,

“Draußen ist es windig.” should be “It’s windy outside.” That hardly means a typhoon has hit.

Hallo Chi,

Thank you for your comment!

Yes, great. “überall sieht man viel fallendes Laub” or “Auf dem Boden gibt es viel gefallenes Laub”.

Vielen Dank!

Überall sieht Man viel fallende Laub… Auf dem Boden gibt es viel fallende Laub…
Es könnte falsch sein…

Hi JB,

Thank you for your comment! :thumbsup:
That’s right, it seems that we made a little mistake here, it should be “turn of the year”. I will forward your words, thank you and have a nice day!

Jahreswechsel can mean “change of season”?? I always thought it only referred to the change of *year*, i.e. New Year. Hence, “zum Jahreswechsel” referring to the holiday season around the end of December and early January.

LEO doesn’t show any meaning regarding “change of seasons”: https://dict.leo.org/#/search=Jahreswechsel

I can see where with an annual “season”, such as “football season”, or “hunting season”, this might make sense, because at least those seasons each begin and end only once per year. But I’m skeptical on the use of Jahreswechsel for summer changing into autumn.
