    Surprise

    Hello,
    How to express the surprise to the situation we didn't expect?
    Is the sentence "Who would have thought" correct and natural? Maybe I should write "Can you imagine?" ?

    How to express the surprise to the situation we didn't expect?

    How can I express surprise to the unexpected?


    Is the sentence "Who would have thought?" correct and natural? OK, but it usually is used for amazement.

    Maybe I should write "Can you imagine?" OK, but may mean "I couldn't believe it."

    How about: "What a surprise!"

    And how to say that the sun shines and it becomes warmer? Is there a single word for those?
