Q2: Both are acceptable and both are used depending on the region. I live in Cozumel Mexico and they use mostly tomar (Although I have heard a few waiters say beber). But if a customer says beber they certainly understand it. So when you get to a Spanish speaking country, on your first day go to a restaurant and wait for the waiter to ask the question; "Quiere tomar" or Quiere beber" then you will know.
Fluenz is a great course and this forum has been very helpful to me. I am midway through level 5 now. It's a challenging course, but worth sticking with it. But I recommend also supplementing it with other sources like free video's on YouTube. I like Butterfly Spanish. Each Butterfly video is 10 to 20 minutes and handles a specific subject. For me it is great reinforcement to the Fluenz concepts.
