Ehhh…I don’t drink coffee xD
Sunako, Nice work! You’re quick 🙂 Do you like tea then, or do you avoid drinking those kinds of drinks?
Yep, I avoid those as I can hardly sleep whenever I take them
That makes sense!

Hey, I like coffee too. I usually have a luwak coffee in a tin cup. And btw, I’m an English teacher too. I began teaching in 1998.
Nice to know you, Michael.

Michael started teaching English in 1994. He takes his cofee black. I also take it black but with sugar.Your lesson have alredy inspired me to make a cap of joe.
Thanks Vladimir! I just poured a cup of joe for myself 🙂
Nice to hear your voice, Michael!
Thanks Chaya.BTW, how do you take your coffee?
If it’s American coffee like Taster’s Choice – with milk and sugar. If it’s Turkish coffee – only with sugar. BTW, it’s hard to read this with the dark blue background. The text doesn’t stand out enough.
Where I live in Israel, there’s a café by the name of ‘Cup o’ Joe’! http://photos1.blogger.com/x/blogger/272/330/1600/265827/2c%20-%20Signs%20Cuppa.jpg

Thanks Roza….I appreciate the kind words. Sometimes when I’ve had too much joe, I take mine with a bit of milk and sugar as well.
dear Michael i always prefer to take my coffee with cream and sugar ,because when i take my without sugar it gives me a headache
I hear your podcast about three months and I’ve never been here at your website. I’m not sure about the quality of my english and it’s my first comment in this idiom. I’m sorry about it, I’m sure that I’m doing some mistakes.
Therefore, I’m here just to try to get out of my comfort zone and improve my english. So, I came to the beginning.
Let’s answer your challenge questions:
1: If I’m not wrong, he starts at 1994.
2: He takes his coffee black, just like me. But I like it with sugar.
Thank you for your excelent job! Everyday I learn something new in english.
Thanks Octávio, Nice work. A few ideas for you.
1) in English we make mistake, not do mistakes.
2) Time prepositions. Use “at” with clock time / “on” with day or date / “in” with all other kinds of time
Thank you, Michael!
I’ll never forget this again! 🙂
Glad to hear it!
Could you plz give some examples with “in” with all other kinds of time.
I know about “at” and “on”. For e.g I get up at 5 O’clock.
I am coming back on next Monday/ on 3rd July.
Could u please tell me how to find challenge questions, I couldn’t find.
When you said “…a city in the northern part of Japan…”, could you say “a city in the northern (=adjective) Japan…”?

Hello, Michael! I am new here and I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from you. Thank you!
so…Michael started his teaching career in 1994 and he takes his coffee black. I like green tea instead of coffee. I hope I didn’t make many mistakes.
