I think that the British food is delicious. I love to eat fish and chips. I've never tasted Chinese and Indian food and I'm sceptical because I think it has a lot of spices.
By the way I have watched Word on the Street in the television in my country and I think it's a lovely show.

Hi NarethTan. I've just checked the video and it seems to be working ok for me on my computer. Is the video still not playing for you? Could you let us know what browser you are using (e.g. Internet Explorer)? Also, can you try the other videos on the site like Grammar Snacks, Fast Phrasals and Video Zone and check if they work ok, or if they don't play either? One thing you can do is try using a different computer and see if the videos will play. I hope we can help you sort this out! :)

Hi Iulia20! Thanks for your comment. You mentioned the diversity of British food and in the video they talk about foods from around the world. Do you eat food from different countries too in Romania? What kind of food is popular nowadays?
