sorry, but should it not be "anything to drink" in English? I am German and my English is very bad, sorry, but I would never say: "Do you have a drink?" but "Do you have something to drink" or "I have nothing to drink..." or "I do not have anything to drink in my bag" Am I wrong ?

Hi Sabine :) a good question, but you have to remember that this is DUO Lingo. There were numerous times when I had sentences that were constructed to reflect the intended "learned language" rather than English, where you are coming from. Try to think of it from "Arabic Sentence" point of view, rather than trying to make "English sense". I've had the same issues while learning German, which I've completed twice ;)

No, that would be : "ليس هناك أن شرب في شنطتي"
