Welcome to all our new users from Japan! Thanks for all your great comments about this video and I hope you have the chance to try the foods you've seen in the video! I'm sure you'll like them. Are you all in the same class? How did you hear about LearnEnglish Teens?

We are all the member of a school in Osaka. I first knew about LearnEnglish Teens when I got English homework from the school. I'll have used this useful site to improve my English ability.

Seems people doesn't prefer British food much after all. I hope I could meet some delicious plates when I visit there.

This movie was interesting!!! I think it's good that we can eat foods from many countries in British. But I can't eat all of Full English Breakfast, because it's too much!!! lol

When I visited London about 30 years ago, I coud hardly find any foods except a pile of potatoes at a supermarket. But now it seems the situation has been changed.

If you visited London 30 years ago, you must be older than 17! Our website only allows for users aged between 13 and 17 years old to write comments. Please don't comment again. Parents and teachers can use all the material on our site, but they can't write comments - this space is reserved for teenagers.

Ahh they look delicious❤❤I am hungry now! XD
That's so good to get chances to eat food from different cultures.

But I don't think they are healthy like Japanese food. And I want to know that Japanese food is popular in Britain:))

Hi! One of my friends has sushi every single day. It’s part of his new healthy diet. He has sushi for lunch, and steamed vegetables for dinner. So I think sushi’s getting quite popular now! How about you, do you like eating food from around the world? What food is popular in Japan at the moment? Could you recommend a few Japanese dishes for us to try?

I think British food tastes good. At scool we learned that British people usualy eat oatmeal for breakfast and drink tea with milk all day long. But I see that traditional breakfast is very big and nourishing and doesn`t include poridge.
What is a black pudding?

Hi Hanna, 
It's true that many British people drink lots of cups of tea during the day. To answer your question, black pudding is a type of black sausage made with blood. I think most people would only have a cooked breakfast at the weekend. I think toast or cereals is more popular on a normal school day.
