How to pronounce seasons in Chinese

Officially spring is during the months of March, April and May in China. Summer is from June through to August. Autumn is during the months of September, October and November and winter is from December to February. Nevertheless, it’s not uncommon to have some cold weather in May when the plants are in full flower or warm and humid days in October together with beautiful autumn colors.
