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

I wanna visit Borough Market!! It's great that you can eat food from all over the world at the market. I've heard British food is not good, but it looks tasty. I'd like to try it!

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.

Hi uga,
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.
