Lovely lesson,Jade. In Brazil we are used to drinking
“builder’s tea” exactly like you described it.
I usually watch your lessons, twice or even thrice,
because of your accent. It’s an extra lesson.
Thanks a lot.

What a really interesting lesson about English culture!!!Thanks so much Jade ;)
Would you mind teaching us something about the famous British breakfast?? Baked beans in tomato sauce, black pudding, mushrooms, bacon,etc.??I´m not joking. It would also be very interesting to know more about your typical breakfast!!

a pretty good lesson but correction Jade: The british did not explore the world to get tea but invaded those tea-cultivating countries such as Sri Lanka(formerly Ceylon),India etc..therefore it reached Britain in 1800`.Otherwise that plant is not possible to grow in Britain `cause the climate not permitting so as everyone knows that! you`be better off not saying so on your video.Sorry for this but I had to comment on this as an historian.

Hi, good day, like your lesson topic, thanks; One feedback, speaking the student side, use one column at the time like others teachers do, so you don’t block with your body one of the two columns, others teachers pause the video and with a finger noise come back like time machines or magic tricks with the new column; Always stand in front of the blank side of the board, and by the way you should not be moving to the center of the board all the time, just in the beginning (Presentation) and when closing the video/class, always take a side, left or right of the board, this is not a comedy club where the presenter take the center of the stage, you have information in the board don’t block it with your body.

Hi Jade!
Thank you for the lesson!
I like to drink tea too, as many others on the world, and in the England, of course. I am troubled, a bit, why Englishman use so ‘not clean’ words when they talking about kind of food.
It was very useful lesson for me.
I hope it isn’t the last time, and we will be enjoying new topics of English culture!

We drink tea with milk in Siberia

Saturday, September 23rd 2017

I got 8 our of 9. I got #1 incorrect. haha!

Sunday, September 24th 2017

Great lesson Jade.
Your descriptions about English tea customs are unbeatable

Monday, September 25th 2017

learning about other cultures is important because: 1) you learn more about your OWN culture, by contrast and comparison 2) you learn that most people around the world are the same, despite local customs 3) you add a lot of variety to your life 4) it’s just fun.

Monday, September 25th 2017

I’d prefer a coffee, please.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Very good lesson.Thanks.
