In my country,Russia, borchs and okroshka are very polular. I like it,but i prefer spice dishes as well. A lot of russians drink black tea every day. You can see a bun of bread in each family. I rarely eat british dishes but if I was suggested the english breakfast - i would not refuced.

I think that british people don't have their own, traditional food. But food which Britannians are eating is very tasty and delicious that's why they like it very much and me too. :-)

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.
