Campaigners say hot sugary drinks should be taxed in the same way as soft drinks. Catherine and Georgina discuss and teach related vocabulary.
Campaigners have warned that some festive coffees and hot chocolates sold by high street chains contain shockingly high levels of sugar. The group Action on Sugar wants them to be subject to the same sugar tax as soft drinks. Several of the coffee chains in the study said they also offered healthier options.

It's great subject
Every year, my friends and I throw a festive occasion. My best friend usually makes a cake that is crammed with fruits and nuts as he has a dab hand at cooking scrumptious cakes. However, he is vegetarian and prefer to eat plant-based food, while I have a sweet tooth and cannot stop myself from biscuits that are overloaded with chocolate.
