I love the British-style pub. In my city there are several pubs and are amazing and stunning. Also they are succesful.
I like going out with my friends. We go to the cinema. we eat in traditional restaurants and sometines we go to countryside

I´m from a tropical country, Brazil, and here the people like to drink a lot of beer, because during all year the weather normally is very hot. Someday I´ll visit Great Britain and its pubs.

İ want to learn English very well for my education. but synonyms are killing me. İ mean, there are lots of word and İ can't memorize all of them . what can İ do about that? please help me.

Hello eitney,

I wish I could help you but this is really just a question of learning vocabulary and memorisation. You can find some tips on vocabulary on our FAQ page - here.

Hi, I have never been in British pub. I have no idea about taste of bitter or lagger. I like very much Polish beer from small breweries. In Poland we have many types of beer light beer, dark beer, irish beer. There are many small breweries they produce tastty beer in a small scale in Poland. They are much better than beer from big breweries you can try honey beer, it is delicious, or beer with cherries or plums. There are many types beer honey, I think they are the best in the world. Come to Poland , and try our beers, you will not disappointed. Once I visit chech pubs I drink same tipes of beer. tha dark beer was very good. Visit us not only becouse of beer but if you be heer try it.

Yes, A lot of people drink beer in my country. I never been test real British beer. But I have been to a British-style pub. In my country have many Irish pubs. I know one of them and I have been there. It is named Grand Khaan Irish Pub. It has huge space, every furniture made by wood and cool air condition system.

In my country people do not drink publicly. I have been to UK and I lived for six and half years but I did not taste it. A part of my religion, I have studied in Metro news paper that alcohol is more dangerous than drug (opium, hashish etc.)

hi there everyone,
I do like beer, I hardly can think of somebody that doesn't drink beer. I drink it in all the year but more in summer and when the weather is hotter.I've tried bitter beer but I'd rather lager. Once I went to a british pub bur it wasn't in Britan it was in Benidorm,Spain and I liked it a lot with its live music and the interior was quite different from the ussual ones arround there, with its wooden walls and so I liked it a lot it was the top.

hello its great i want to learn english please
