I have never been abroad, so i could not provide any reasonable comment on which countries's food is better. I am a sales man and I traveled a lot in past, visited many places in China. Chinese food is so wonderful, you can try totally different kinds of food in different provinces. There are many types food in China, mainly categorized by location. The north is famous for Royal food, as Qing dynasty capital was located in Beijing at north of China. The Royal food features is well prepared, with complicated process such as Rostated Duck. The east is famous for Yangzhou Food, in ancient Yangzhou, Nanjing, Hangzhou were very beautiful and rich, the large rich family employed large group cookers to prepare their food, so the symbols of this area food are fancy, delicate. There are several other categories such as Guangzhou food, Chongqing Hot pop, Shanxi all kinds of noodles and so on. In summarize, my colleagues from western all considered Chinese food is well-prepared with many categories.

Hello, I am from Venezuela. The food here is very healthy and traditional. We have the Arepa for the breakfast that is a type of bread made with a corn flour and can be filled with different foods like cheese, meat, chicken, tuna, and the most traditional is filled with a potato salad that contains carrots, chicken and mayonnaise. Very Delicious!.
I was in England two years ago and I did not see a extensive variety of English food. I saw fish and chips in some places but I did not try it. However there are two English cheff that I love, Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver, I love their food! They are very talented chef, and I always see their programs on TV.

I don't have chance to know British food.
Actually people haven't many time. For that reason the fast food is a good option.
My fast food prefer is DESGRANADO. It contain beef, bacon, chicken, sweet corn, fried potatoes and a delicious sauce...ummmmmm I'm hungry. Bye...

Hi Team,

In every Podcast they asked a question. There is a lot of chances for mistake in our answer/comment. Do you point out that mistakes or not?

My 2nd question is, Is there any program to practice for speaking and writing. Seems like It is related to listening. Looking forward for your suggestions.


Hello himalayians,

No, in general we don't point out mistakes. This is simply because we wouldn't have time to do all our work if we did. We're happy to answer short, specific questions on a sentence from time to time if you have some particular question.

As for speaking and writing, I'd suggest you read through our Help page, where you'll find advice on how you can use LearnEnglish to improve those skills as well. You might also want to look through the Writing skills section of LearnEnglish Teens, where they have a few pages on typical school or exam writing tasks.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello himalayians,

Thanks for your feedback. The Help page is relatively new and we're still testing it. At some point, we will likely give it a more prominent position.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I've never heard that British food is bad. But I don't know what the British food really is. I only heard about pudding. In my country people eat our traditional food. From other cuisines the most popular are Italian and Japanese.

Hello the LearnEnglish Team!
In this podcast exercises on tab 2 and 6 are the same.

Hello krig,

Thank you for letting us know about this. We have been upgrading some parts of the site and it is useful to know when things like this happen. We will try to fix this as soon as possible.

Best wishes,
