There's a mistake in the page on internet in the activity 1. The sentence "The British drink more tea than coffee" is true but when you check the answers is not ok. However in the support pack the sentence is the other way round. (I don't know if this expression is correct.).

Thanks a lot for pointing this out! I've fixed the problem.

Hello guys!
Coffee is more popular than tea here in my country. Actually, Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer. People don't put milk in tea here. In SOUTH of Brazil, which is near than Argentina, we also drink a lot of mate, erva-mate ou chimarrão, as we call it. 
See ya, Nat
