Hola.
¿Cómo se dice esto en inglés?
Por ejemplo: estamos a 5 grados bajo cero. (En inglés americano como británico).

gracias.

    AmE - "we are at 5 degrees below zero" or "it is 5 below."

    Be sure to include whether this is Fahrenheit or Celsius, since the typical American would understand it to be Fahrenheit.
    That woul be: we are at 5 celsius degrees below zero, right?

    What about the BritE way?

    I would say "it's -5" (It's minus five).
    The longer, more formal version would be "it's minus five degrees Celsius", but people rarely feel the need to add the word Celsius here in the UK, because it is quite obvious which scale is being used.
    (That said, I personally am still more likely to say "centigrade" than "Celsius"!)

    Celsius, with an "s".
