Spicy food is neither popular or unpopular in Sweden but in my opinion spicy food is necessary. I love chilly and other spices and I can't live without them! Some people become surprised when I tell them that I like spicy food. Nobody in my family apart from me likes spicy food...

Hello!!!
There is a city in turkey. Antioch, where it grows more bitter chili peppers types. and this is a proven fact in the world.

Hi DONG WOO! It's a little difficult, isn't it? Don't worry, here are some things you can do to help. Watch one part of the video (20-30 seconds long), then pause and read the Transcript to check you understood. Then watch the next part, stop and check. If you do the Preparation task first, that will help too. And if it's still too difficult, maybe try an easier video.
