You can get kebabs in Britain too, but I'm sure they're not as nice as in Turkey! When I lived in Germany there were loads of Turkish restaurants so I ate quite a lot of Turkish food then. Delicious!

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?

I think that British food is a taste one...At least everybody must try that ...Including here british breakfast too....
However I must say that Albanian food is such a wonderful one .... You must try albanian's pie or Albanian traditional food .... They are awsomee
