I am wondering why the Spanish:

"una cafetería a desayunar"

is translated int English as:

a bar to have a coffee

Seems for beginning Spanish students this kind of loose translation makes it difficult to learn vocabulary, especially when it is so easily translated:

"a cafeteria for breakfast"

Morning Gary,

First of allI want to apologize, the translation would be more accurate "a cafeteria for breakfast" you are right.

I translated "a bar to have a coffee" mainly because our breakfast uses to be just a coffee but I know it would have been better to use "breakfast".

As you see I'm not am English native speaker and you will probably find more mistakes. I give my scripts to an English man who lives near me and he sometimes changes words or expressions but maybe he didn't consider this one as a "wrong" one.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your mail. If you have more things to tell me, don't hesitate I am always trying to improve my English and my podcasts and I will change it following your advice.

Greetings from Spain
