Hello ! Dear Team ,
I have a question: what means "....embraced the exciting new flavours. "?

Hello May Thida Su,

'embrace' means to happily accept something. The people there were happy to try foods from different places.

I'd encourage you to look up words in the dictionary when possible.

All the best,

Hello! My name is Verónica I'm from México. Thank you for sharing this video it's so interesting to know different kinds of food around the world and the cuisine of Britain I think in all world you can find different kind of food, nowadays it's multicultural and it's the opportunity to mix new flavors and reinvent the cuisine. My favorite food is Italian and Mexican. I like the different kinds pasta a desserts and the variety of different flavors .In my opinion eat it's one of the most pleasure of the life.

Thanks a lot for this episode.
My favourite meal is Francesinha, is a typical Portuguese dish, more specifically from Porto.
This meal takes bread, cheese, meat, sausage and a fabulous sauce. Many people likes eat this meal with french fries and drink a beer.

Thank you for those episodes!
I really hope one day, I go to a tipic british restaurant in London!


Hi Teacher,

Let's have a look at this sentences " Restaurants from all around the world can be found on most British high streets". My question is, why "the" article is missing at " on (the) most British,...,"?

Hi silangit,

In this sentence 'British' is an adjective. The noun is 'high streets'.

When we are talking in non-specific terms about plural things (i.e. about 'most high streets' not about particular high streets), we do not use an article.

If we were talking about a particular group of high streets then we could use an article but it would come before the moun, not before 'most':

...most of the high streets in this part of London...

hi i am Dania from Syria I enthsiastic about trying new food and flavours i hope i can travel more to taste new food
by the way i like home made food
in my country the traditional food is based on fresh ingredient

I love this type of food market, I love eating through a huge range of stand. Unfortunately, I've never been to Borough Market and I hope to go there as soon as I can even for trying something new. A similar food market it's in Camden Town, I don't remember exactly the name of it but I remember that it's very exciting and obviously in Camden, you can amuse as much as you want!
