Have you ever wondered what Americans thought of these foreign and not so foreign foods? Well I hone in on what most of us would think about these cultured foods. Some just sound gross!

In this episode we go over a HUGE cultural norm that will make every American uncomfortable if you bring it up!
Listen to learn:
My thoughts on why this is a stereotype?
Does it make me feel uncomfortable?
Have I witnessed it happen before?
How common this is?

In this episode, we'll talk about how you can create more permanent progress in your life through creating good habits--like studying English every day and listening to this podcast every week!
