Are there any difference between these sentences? What did you have for lunch? What did you eat for lunch? I had a glass of milk. I drank a glass of milk. We are having a lesson. We are taking a lesson.

Hi Irina! The first two sentences are identical. The second two are also the same. For the third pair, they're identical, although "taking a lesson" doesn't sound natural. You could say, in a general way, that you take a class (present simple tense), but in this case, when using the present continuous tense ("We are having a lesson") it's better to use have and not take. I hope that helps! Lyndsay

Both of them are true but as far as I know "have" can be used for eating and drinking but "eat" just for eating
