Hi,could you help me.What are the synonims of the word EMBRACED?

Hello oksana,

To find synonyms the best place is a thesaurus. You can find many on the internet, such as this one.

National food in Belarus is very tasty and healthy, because belorusian people make it with fresh vegetables, meat, fish and fruits. For brekfast people usually eat porridge. Therefore belorusian people are strong. For dinner we have vegetable soup, plov, draniki or meatballs with potatoes. For evening people have pancakes with machanka or macharoni. In Belarus usually drink tea, coffee, fruit juices, kvass and fizzy drinks. And in Belarus people eat honey, marmalade and berry jeams. My favourite meals are draniki, dumplings and pickle soup. I usually drink tea, orange juice and Cola. Waiting you in Belorusian restoraunts!

Hi i wanted to ask you.Do you have Shawarma in UK???

Hi Malyek,

Yes, you can find shawarma in the UK. I would say that while most people in the UK do not differentiate between shawarma, doner kebabs and gyros (describing them all as kebabs), they certainly like to eat them! You can find many places in towns offering take-away food of this kind.

Best wishes,
