Hi everyone. For me both tea and coffee are very good and I like them very much. I start my day from cup or two cup green tea. The green tea is very good for healthy. After when I'm at work, I start my job and drink cup of coffee with sugar. After two or three hours work I drink another cup coffee. At work I'am addicted from coffee.
In Poland people drink lots of tea and coffee too. Nowadays people in Poland drink them in the same quanites.

I love tea. I almost drink tea everyday, without sugar or milk, you know, is healthier without sugar, sometimes with milk but not too much as Ravi says. I rather drink tea than coffee, although here in Mexico coffee is drunk more than tea. I don't blame them, we make good coffee here! XD

thanks Kirk

Dear team, British Council
I need an explination on the passive and how we form it and use it and GET is sometimes used in place of the verb TO BE; Sometimes I do not undestand the difference and the context for use it.
Thank you.

İn Turkey a lot of peole is drınk tea.Because we have very productive land areas.Tea has been grown north of turkey because of that people like tea.Genarally in my country people drınk strong tea.İt means when you pour the teapot into the cup you put more than water.İf tea color is good and dark ,we called 'ıt looks like rabbit blood'.That is interseting for other countries culture.

The most people in Algeria drink the coffee, someone can have 3 or 4 cups of coffee every day especially the smoker one, for me I drink one cup of coffee every day in the morning after a cup of milk, I have a cup of tea one a week but I ‘ve never drank a tea with milk like all Algerian’s people.

In my country, lots of people drink coffee. However, I like drinking tea because I know that it is good for my health. I don't like coffee at all. Tea makes me feel better in the morning. You know, it is very great to have a cup of tea every morning. When you enjoy every drop, you can feel bitter and sweet flavours. It depends on your choice. I usually drink tea with out milk or sugar because I want to try something new, things of life.

I don't like to drink tea for me I prefer coffee although I don't drink too much.
People in my country drink more coffee as tea. I think there are just a few teahouse in my city. People usualy drink coffee from de morning to night all day they drink coffee. But of course there are persons who drink tea but without milk just with sugar. The ritual of tea is the same as in England.,,Put some water in a pot then wait to boiling,in this time you put the tea leaves into teapot then add the hot water then wait for about 5 minutes. Then you pour tea in your the favorite cup, finally put the sugar or you can enjoy without sugar

Tea is an important part of our life and I'm addicted to tea. People in my country drink lots of cup of tea every day. Especially in the mornings, drinking tea is essential to start a good day for most people. I know some people who would drink almost twenty cups of tea every day. Bristish people like tea with milk on the contrary people in my country tend to drink tea with sugar or lemon. Also, after the dinner is one of the best time for drinking tea. In my country People eat a lot in dinner time then they feel sleepy. So, we can say tea is taken to feel awake after dinner time in my country.
