    Hey there! We hope you enjoyed that! If you like programmes about coffee, check out this episode of 6 Minute English:

  2. Every weekend we like to fancy a gourmet meal.

  3. I like drinking coffee. Here in Spain, Coffee shops usually serve strong and good coffee. But I didn't know anything about coffee cutting down your daily intake of calories until now. Thank goodness, I don't have any problem with calories.. Maybe going to the Gym and studying English can be the best way to burn them down 😜 I enjoyed watching your Video (as usual)

  4. 😅I put cocoa powder in my black coffee to prevent caffeine crash. When caffeine dissipates theobromine takes over to give me a mellow alertness without the crash. When caffeine and theobromine combined with CBD oil it offsets the drowsiness effect of CBD oil to give you the best psychological mellowness and pain relief of CBD and alertness of caffeine and theobromine. I get the best of all worlds in these three compounds without other medication which has unwanted side effects on cognition. This drink without sugar also prevents me from feeling hungry and helps me stay in ketosis longer without suffering hunger urges. Combined with olive and coconut oil really helped reduced insulin resistance causing belly fat and a general feeling of health and wellness.

  5. Why people don't come to study here? I think..a lot of useful things that people make don't want to share to their friends just like me. Because hope to keep only for my treasure channel.😂 I'll share my friends. Thank you all BBClearningenglish team member. Have a great day. From Korea ❤

  6. "how come you are wearing that shirt again?" lol that's so funny😂

  7. I have always enjoyed watching BBC learning English because the two hosts are good-looking, and their voice sounds so comfortable.

  8. Can we use these 3 words as
    Fancy a cup of coffee after having dinner?
    I cooked a dinner last night but it turned out really well.
    How come we need to use sanitizer all the time?

  9. I knew both “turns out” and “how come” but didn’t know how they were used in a conversation until today! Thank you BBC learning English 🥰

  10. yeah exactly drinking coffee can decrease your weight I have had this experience but if you don't care about your nutrients it leads u to anemia. that turns your skin pale.

  11. l learned English vocabulary today! thanks!

  12. my ielts test is going to happen next month, i am very anxious, love the turns out example sentence, turns out i passed the test! with a unexpected band score 8!

  13. My friend said he ruined his test, but it turns out he passed. How come he thought he's gonna fail?

    ✊🏻 “The support of tested and dependable friends gives one the strength to hold on to hope and to endure successfully even the most challenging knocks in life."

  25. This video was as amazing as others, and how come I hadn't known this information before the video, but when I drank coffe, I realized that I was such an energetic person that I suceeded in fitting well, Turns out that scientists have same idea with me. So do you fancy a couple of coffe to celebrate it 🙂

  26. How come= why
    Ex: how come the natural resouces are becoming exhausted.

  27. The greatest thing since sliced bread!🧡


    Each year the Glastonbury music festival

    brings approx 200,000 revelers to the quiet areas of Somerset

    the money they spend locally helps so much to keep the area afloat.

    People come from all over the world for the attractions and amusements

    but what started initially as an alternative venue has sold out to the NWO

    and they now even have a designated pervert area in the Festivalfor homosexuals and drug addicts.

    One of the main music stages which had been for some years called the John Peel stage

    has had to be renamed after he was exposed as a serial sex predator of young chidren

    The now disgraced BBC not only knew but covered up Peels behaviour in a similar way to that of Jimmy Saville Paul Gambacinni Allan Freeman Chris Denning and others.

    Esther Rantzen who got in as chairwoman at Childline, famous for " losing"

    complaints about Greville Janner Leon Brittan and the " amazing James Randi "

    was part of the BBCs cover up operation.

    and they want us to pay a license fee ? forget that.
