Every Monday and Tuesday mornings I teach at Miyakonojo National College of Technology and the staff always give the teachers chocolates and sweets to eat between classes. From April there is a new schedule and now I am the only teacher there on Monday mornings but the staff still puts out the same amount of chocolate. So I am very lucky and last Monday I was hungry so I ate all the chocolate! It was delicious! After I told the staff (who can speak English) that; “I have a sweet tooth”. She thought it meant I have bad teeth.
“I have a sweet tooth” means I really like sweet things, for example chocolate, candy, cakes etc.
Do you have a sweet tooth?
