Hi Nushaba,

What is the national food in Azerbaijan? What does it taste like? Can you describe your favourite meal? I would love to know more!

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.

I am from Bangladesh, and I love spicy food (but not too much that would make me cry). They taste really delicious!

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! :)
