I am zyad from Tunisia. We usually drink tea in the café. A cup of tea is not expensive here and it is good in some places and awful in some cafés. People say that tea helps digestion but some recommend it after one hour of the launch because it absorbs all the iron taken from the food if we drink it just after eating. They say also that green tea is better than red tea.

I am new here... I can listen no podcast. It always appears "error...". What should I do ?

Sorry to hear about your problem. Can you give me some more information about it?

  • What web browser are you using?
  • Can you see the exercises underneath the podcasts?
  • Where exactly do you see the word 'error'?

hi, come on lets go, evry morning evry body what's gone on 

hello every body

i'm wywy from Egypt and tea is very popular in my country i think it's more popular than coffee
!i like tea but with mint

Tea is also one of my favourite drinks, particularly on a cold day. I usually drink tea with milk and honey as I like the taste and find it comforting.
Don’t really like coffee  much, although coffee is a popular drink in Portugal, but like water and fresh juice at any time of the day. Nice topic, many thanks.

Thanks for your fantastic podcast.
 Thanks Adam and Job for mentioning "Hanoi boogie" on this podcast. I am so glad you could listen to it. In fact, there isn't an offical MV of this song because the musician believe that the memory of each person about Hanoi is different.
Vietnamese drink tea too. We drink lotus tea. There is even has a drink called "trà đá_icetea" which is sold everywhere and everyone can drink it because it is very cheap.
One last thing, "Kieu Trang" is a girl not a boy as Adam said. But that Ok.
In fact, it took me 30 minutes to type this comment and to make sure that the grammar is correct. Is it too long? Tell me if i 've made a mistake. Is my writing English skill ok? i hope i can improve it.

Hello Kieu Trang,
Sorry for my mistake!
I'm afraid I don't have time to evaluate the English in user comments, but your comment was very clear and well-written. One thing I didn't understand was 'MV' - I don't know what it means.
Best wishes,
