Since I've been learning French I've seen the phrase "Il fait beau" about a million times. So I can certainly say "It's nice out." But in English I could also say:
- The weather is amazing!
- The weather is gorgeous! It's gorgeous out! It's gorgeous outside!
- You should see what it's like outside!
- What a gorgeous day!
- Beautiful weather today.
- Lovely day, isn't it?
And so on! There's a billion ways I could express this. And in French right now I'm stuck with "Il fait beau" because I don't know what else is allowed! For instance, can I say "Le temps est...[adjective]"?
