I do like sweets so much, unfortunately. Because I notice that I' really upset when there's very little sweets at home. It could be called also obsession I guess. I can't get used to reduce sugar in my menu. I very hope that it will be the case when my parental leave is over.

Typical snacks in my country are cheese with bread and sometimes slice of ham with a glass of wine for apperitive. But there are also a lot of kind of crackers like bretzels for example. I do like desserts but I prefer main meals. At this time my favourite is Paris-Brest, but I have to buy it because it's hard to cook. I often cook pancakes and crepes or chocolat cake. I have to try more like pies with different fruits.

difference between biscuits and cookies

Hello bud,

In British English, 'biscuits' are a sweet, baked food. In American English, these are called 'cookies'. In American English, a biscuit is a kind of bread, usually about the size of a cupcake and eaten with gravy.

By the way, could you please change your username so that it's written in Roman letters so that everyone can read it?

Thanks in advance.

I can't see the PDF files, why is that??

Hello Ervin88,

There are no .pdf files on this page. Not every page has them, I'm afraid. It is possible that we will add them in the future but we are a small team here at LearnEnglish and creating pdf files is quite a time-intensive task for us.
