The food in my country is very good. We have traditional dishes in many kinds of the country for example South we have the famous barbeque, southeast we have the feiojada (black beens with smoked pork), northeast we muqueca of fish and kinds of food really hot. The variety here are very wide. And besides our traditional dishes, there are dishes from places like Italian, Japan, China, Mexican and others.
When I eat out I usually go out for a Pizza. In São Paulo is common for a family eat pizza on Saturday night.

I like it.

hi i have problems about for English i need all my friends help me learning English how can i learn English i don't understand when watching TV and reading the newspapers books

Hello dirie!

Learning a language can be difficult! The best way to start is to find things you can do easily. Reading books or watching TV is not easy. Start with some of the elementary games, listenings, and exercises on our website. For example, try our elementary English listening podcast. You can read the words as well if you click on the Instructions & downloads link and get the transcript.
Take your time, and find something that interests you!
Good luck!

Hi dirie, don't worry about it. I'm also learner. But what do I do? I watch more an more times the podcasts, read the transcript aloud as more as I have a time to. I mean this is a place where you can improve. Just be voluntary and you'll catch it .

i wish to success learning English correctly and street way

BritishCouncil really gives people the opportunity to improve their listening skills.
