Hello! Would you please explain me what does mean the expresión "main course" in this episode or another way to say the same? Thanks a lot.

Hello Nusly Martinez,

Meals are often broken into courses and the main course is the most important part of the meal. For example:

Soup ('the starter')

Roast beef and vegetables ('the main course')

Chocolate cake ('the dessert')

When I get a present I don't don't care for very much, I don't hurt person who gave me and I think him.

Thank you
