The Pronoun "it"

In English we use the pronoun "it" to refer to things or sometimes animals.  The verb "is" can never be alone in English. It has to have a subject. In the sentence below "it" refers to the weather. Since weather is a thing, we use the pronoun "it."

CORRECT- In my country it is very cold in the winter.

INCORRECT- In my country is very cold in the winter.

Practice
If the sentence is correct, leave it blank. If it is not correct, write it correctly.

examples

I like the movie because is interesting.

It is very cold outside.

(We leave it blank because it is correct.)

 

1.  In the summer is hot.
    

2.  I know that is raining outside.
    

3.  I wear a hat when it is sunny.
    

4.  I like Frank because he is nice.
    

5.  Is very sunny and hot at the beach.

The word "too" in English indicates an extreme or excessive amount of something.
