Baking As a Language Training

When a Swiss repeats some word over and over again and neither you nor him know the translation of the word to some meaningful language, slowly you start to understand what he was probably about to say... That's sometimes the best how you can learn words you would otherwise forget after ten seconds... For example how to say dough, sugar powder (that's quite obvious) or maybe smooth flour.

The most delicious cake you've ever seen
Talking to a foreigner in a language that is foreign to both of you may of course cause a situation where  some words none of you know emerge but you express it anyway in a pseudo form, such as:
  • undertitles (instead of subtitles)
