About This Class


I'm concentrated on my culinary classes at this moment and glad you appreciate them but as I don't want to forget my language classes students, I decided to make this 2 in 1 class.

In this class I'll give you my recipe of Borsch' - Traditional Russian soup with beetroots, cabbage, carrots... It can be vegetable or meaty, served hot or cold. At the same time, you'll learn some Russian words in relation with the recipe and food. I put them in a separate lesson so that those who were not interested in could skip it.

Hope you'll like this idea and the whole class!

Thank you for this really yummy class ! I highly recommend this. And thanks for the bonus of your language !
Clear, straightforward instructions to make a healthy, tasty looking soup. What a great idea to combine cooking and language learning! I enjoyed the music selection as well. Showing the syllables and words while pronouncing them out loud at the same time really helps too.

This is one of the best ideas I've seen here on Skillshare. To learn a language through a recipe is just fantastic! Great job!

Bonjour from France!

I'm a foreign languages teacher in real life.

DIY and crafts addict, I felt the desire to create Nature inspired crochet jewelry and accessories a few years ago. And it's especially the beauty of the flowers that fascinates me.

I'm developing my own techniques which permit me to obtain what I want in the easiest way.

I'm looking for a creative reuse in everything I see, that's why upcycling is just natural for me.
