    Is Tokyo hot?

    I am a junior high school student in Osaka, Japan.

    I found a sentence in my English textbook.
    "Tokyo is hotter than London in August."

    Don't you say, "In August, it is hotter in Tokyo than in London."?

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Re: Is Tokyo hot?

    No not necessarily -- the first sentence is correct. The second one is a much longer way of saying the same thing.

    Not a teacher -- AmE native

    Re: Is Tokyo hot?

    Thank you very much!

    Will you please answer one more question?

    "Today is hot."
    "It is hot today."

    What is the difference?

    They're both fine and mean the same.
