Learn about August in New Zealand

To practice pronunciation of this text below or to start to read faster click this link

August is the last month of our winter. It usually rains, there are lots of rainbows and it snows in the mountain areas. Sometimes it is fine with a beautiful blue clear sky but it's always cool or cold.

Some introduced trees, especially fruit and nut trees, start to show bud growth and birds start mating and making nests from now on.

There are no public holidays in August but Daffodil Day is at the end of the month. Rugby and netball are still important but indoor sports like badminton are also popular.

See this month's activities for more information or free lesson for some apps about New Zealand culture.


This site always has new stuff every month so come back soon.
