IT RAINS   雨が降る


  • When it rains, drops of water fall from clouds.

    Be Careful! We do NOT say “It's rain” (rain” used as a noun) to mean It rains or It's raining (“rain” used as a verb).
  • it rains は、水滴が雲から落ちる、つまり、雨が降る、という意味です。

    注意:「雨が降る」または、「雨が降っている」という意味で、It's rain. と言うのは間違いです。正しくは It rains. または、It's raining. です。



  1. a: Is it still raining outside?
