I don't really like sweets, but I adore chocolate especially dark chocolate. Also I like meat, any meat, fruit (mostly apples and cherry). I like both to cook and to eat. I am good at baking. And I make excellent wine. I think that food must be tasty, then healthy and finally each meal should be good-looking.

Please, check my comment


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

Your English is excellent! Do you actually make your own wine?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Willow-Twig

Yes, I do. And it is not so difficult how can seem to be.

... it is not so difficult how can seem to be → it is not as difficult as it seems

In general, "так ... как ..." = "as ... as ..."


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

I'm really not much of a cook. I love spicy food...actually, I love extremely spicy food, stuff so spicy most other people can't eat it. Because of that, I really enjoy Indian food.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OksanaMaslova

I like sweets, especially chocolate. Also i like fruit and vegetable. And meat is also my favorite food. I cook myself, because i prefer homemade food, and i do it well, but i don't like to spend time in the kitchen. If you see a mistake, correct me.

Hi Oksana,

I also cook myself. I love fish (ever since I lived near the sea, fished and learned what a real fresh fish is, fried half an hour after being dragged out of the sea).

I like apples, plátano (it may look like an ordinary banana, but it's much bigger and cannot be eaten raw. I fry it and it's delicious).

Another thing that I like is sushi. But usually I can eat almost everything and enjoy it.

P. S. Please correct my mistakes everyone who sees them.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mortificator

fished and new

Knew? And "suShi".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

@Algarve11, I'd also change "and knew what means a real, fresh fish" into "and learned what a real fresh fish is".

Nice. What languages do you speak, others than English?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mortificator

I think in this case you need kinda "except for English" or "except English". Only two natives.

Oksana,

There's only one possible mistake: "Fruit and vegetables". Because if you say "vegetable", it will be one vegetable, not many.

Hi. I am wife and mother so i must cook and feed my family. But i do not like cook. I try make something fast and easy. In the morning i cook porridge, at lunch we eat soup. My children like semolina


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/allrgvtch

Hello

i have tried to cook and somtimes it was even tasty. I think a stove is afraid of me or my hands is defined to sometind other.

The food is one of my favorite questions. When my friends ask me "will you?", i can't say no. It is FOOD, then what the point?

Okay, sometimes i needed to say no. But i love food too much an i love all what this involves

Of course, it is neccesary to eat healthy. But i don't know how to answer on it.

I want to try the most unusual food of the world like snails and frog legs in France or just national food of different countries.

Frogs of France? Yes, I would like to try them too, unlike that Gogol's personage, that said "I won't put a frog in my mouth, even if you stick it with sugar".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ledi_vinters

I do not like cook. I am bored it. But I like tasty food). It cooks my mother).


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WinstonWolfMan

I don't like cook too. And I like tasty food, cooked my mother, as you... ))))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/notspec1al

I'm not a good cook nor an expert in degustation (btw, I'm becoming so pissed off when someone says: "Oh, you don't have to be a chef to rate an omelette", this is ridiculous and is often used by some dilettantes; I mean, isn't it obvious that you have to be a chef to rate an omelette as someone who ((knows)) what is he/she talking about? But I got carried away, my bad), but I like to eat my mother's bakery and other foods made by her. I bought her cupcake pans as the 8th of March present and now she bakes those stunning muffins with raisins and almond/other nuts at least twice a month, and it makes me very glad indeed. I'm also fond of green apples, cucumbers, peaches and pomelo. And how could I forget about blinis! As for my food wishlist I can definitely write down the Öçpoçmaq (эчпочмак) and kumis.

Please correct me is there are any mistakes, thank you!

I know, McDonalds is a junk food. But I can't stop... I like this food.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

I thought the same a year ago. But one day i understood that this really tasty food is very junk. And I decided to refuse this food. What can i say? Two months later I stopped wanting this food and stopped eating it. I am happy!)))

Lingots for you for managing to stop doing something.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WinstonWolfMan

Wow! Great story! A year without McDonalds food? Do I understand right? How are you feeling since the moment you refused this food? What about your health?

PS Sorry if my English bad. I'm just learning it at that moment.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

Yes, I live without fastfood about a year. I can't say that my health became much better, but my health is good. But I like to realize that I eat junk food much less often. Also I noticed that I began to cook more useful and varied food at home, but I did not do it specially, it happen itself ))) I really advise you to try refuse junk food. It will be difficult only first time.

My English is not good, but I try to explain my opinion as I can )))

I live without fastfood about a year → I have been living without fast food for about a year.

but I did not do it specially → but I did not do it on purpose
"Specially" is mostly used to modify adjectives or participles - причастия (specially made = специально сделанное/изготовленное), not as a stand-alone adverb. The closest English match to Russian stand-alone "специально" is "on purpose" (or, in some contexts, "by design").


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

Thank you! It is difficult for me for now, but I will study.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WinstonWolfMan

It is difficult for me too... :)

Сорри, не знаю, как делать цитаты на Douligo, поэтому напишу здесь, под этим Вашим комментарием.

Спасибо за Ваш комментарий, так как видите, мой английский довольно слабый и я сюда пришел ради практики (хоть и с ошибками).

"It needs make a decision." Тут я хотел сказать Это требует принятия решения или тут нужно принять решение

Как правильно было бы сказать на английском? Еще раз спасибо за Ваш комментарий. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WinstonWolfMan

I appreciate your advise. But I'm not ready to refuse fast food, unfortunately. It needs make a decision.

As for your level of English — don't stop! Keep going! Let's practice together!

"It needs make a decision." Тут я хотел сказать Это требует принятия решения или тут нужно принять решение
Как правильно было бы сказать на английском?

Поскольку решение должен принимать я, а не "это", то по-английски это будет просто "I need to make a decision", что грамматически эквивалентно русскому "Я должен принять решение". Просто русская фраза с "нужно" грамматически строится по-другому, но по-английски "need" и "must/have to" употребляются совершенно аналогичным образом.

P.S. Безличный вариант, "это требует решения" по-английски тоже возможен, но это будет "It requires a decision".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

Let's practice! Good luck! I will watch you! ))

It needs to make a decision. = Этому нужно принять решение.
Я немного теряюсь в догадках, что Вы хотели здесь сказать.

Нужно принять решение. How to say it in Eglish?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

"It needs make a decision." Тут я хотел сказать Это требует принятия решения или тут нужно принять решение.

As for me I will write the same: It needs to make a decision. But my english is not good and I am not sure that my version is rigth. Let's listen to the more experienced people!))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WinstonWolfMan

Let's listen to the more experienced people!))

I agree with you. :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/diliyecik

I'll wait with you.
It's interesting if it even possible to translate "Нужно принять решение" to English so that the translation would be short.
Because in Russian it's means something like "to decide for yourself that from now on you will always/never do that".

For years they are telling us: “Don’t eat fat food, eat vegetables and fruit as much as possible.” As a result, a lot of people are fat, got diabetes and gastritis. 80% of our brain is fat. If brain could go to the fridge it would it only fat (Russian salo) and chocolate. Vegetables and fruit consist from carbohydrates and fiber. Carbohydrates while digesting turn into sugar and are the main cause of diabetes. Rough fiber causes gastritis. So people should eat mostly fish, meat and eggs and reasonably other food. And forget about cholesterol. Cholesterol pills only ruin your liver. All that stuff is an invention of “scientists” who are paid by food industry and pharmaceutical companies.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mortificator

I would've written (or maybe "would write" - can't decide whether it is past or future?) something too, but I don't like eating and hate cooking.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bmv89

Do not you like eating?? Is it possible? I like eating very much, and I do it right now instead of going to sleep... Help me, I can't stop! )))


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/1Pozin2

What about eating at night? A little bit. After that my dreams are so sweat.
