WOTW: humid

triplo word of the week - humid

 

今週の #WOTW は最後の「humid」です。Unlike many of the words that we have seen so far, ‘humid’ is just an adjective. It means having high levels of water vapour in the air, when the air is warm and damp. Pretty straight forward, so why have we chosen it this week? Because we are all using it these days being that we live in Japan and it’s summer! So we thought we might give you some examples of the most common collocations with ‘humid’, so you can use them too. Ready? Here we go!
