Learning A Language with LearnLanguages24.com : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at LearnLanguages24.com gifted me a free lesson to try out their learn a language service, which is something at that point I was doing but with youtube videos so I said yeah as am sure this way would be much better.

What Language?

LearnLanguages24 do many many languages so am sure you will find one that you have always wanted to learn, but for me it was Romanian as I would like to be able to speak to my future in-laws better than just “hi” “thanks” and “how are you?”.

Logging In

This is the dashboard, yup there is a lot of text on here but for me all I did was just click “Start Daily Tasks” and just let the system decide what is best for me.

You can select something else, but I wanted to jump right in and see how this application thought was the best for me.

The Structure

Once I clicked the daily task link, I was presented with this screen.

As you can see I am only a little into the course, but I wanted to try it for a few weeks before I gave you my honest review….anyway getting back to this screen.

Here is where you can set how long you would like to learn for that day, for me I did 30mins in the morning then 30mins in the afternoon.

next…

Most of the lessons…so far look like the two photos above….this could change but I am still at the start of my course 🙂

With the left photo, you see the english word and then select the correct answer that you have heard in the previous parts.

The right photo, you see the english and you say out loud the correct answer in the language you are studying then click the blue eye to see the correct answer. Then you are presented with a red cross or a tick which if you didn’t get it right you click the X and it will be repeated in the coming lesson(s).

This for me was very easy to navigate, and a good way to learn.

Do look at the above photo again, it wants you to HEAR the audio again, SAY it three times and also WRITE it!! this is a great technique to help learn and remember.

Course Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the product.

For me as I said above I have tried this daily for now close to 3 weeks, I am not the fastest at learning plus this is a difficult language to learn.

I have managed to be able to know a good amount of words by seeing them, or hearing them but yet to be able to speak them…..I am sure this will come with more practice and time.

I am going to keep doing this and see how I get on, I am not setting a target that by x month I want to be fluent no thats not a good attitude, I will see how I get on and learn what I learn at my pace.

I’m using this lockdown time to try and up-skill. I’m enjoying learning Romanian with LearnLanguages24.com because it has a good layout and well thought out plus you get a lifetime access to online courses that have 7000 foreign words and phrases, which is at least twice as much as all other language course providers.

Kandemand (American Candy) Mystery Pack : Review


I had recently seen a lot of sweet boxes coming up on my Instagram, and thought “at some point I should try one and see what they are like” and Kandemand for me kept appearing more than others so I visited their website and this is what happened.

I didn’t know where to start, as in what to buy but I did spot a “Mystery Pack” option at £15 plus £5 for postage so since I couldn’t make my mind up I let Kandemand.

What i got

I had not heard of any of these before, and as you can see this pack was mostly chewy things.

I wont review each sweet as that would be too much, but I will do a wee highlight of my thoughts.

The Sweets

Since I am a big kid I started with the Pop Rocks, come on who doesn’t like these. These were mega sour and very loud but I liked them as reminded me of when I was younger.

The one labeled “Musketeers” reminded me of what we have in the UK a “Milky Way”, and I really like them so this went down a treat.

The Dentyne Fire was an interesting one, it is a Cinnamon flavoured chewing gum with a little spice added to it. At first I was like “hmmm not sure” then after a few more I really like these.

Overall :

As I said I wasnt going to review each item, as that would be too much. This is just a general overview of my order, and what I thought.

I am glad I opted for a mystery pack, as it made me try all new items that I might not have tried before and it was a lot of fun trying and tasting them.

Yup they are all gone, and it only took 3 days….bad I know 🙂

If you want to try something different then check out Kandemand, and do what I did with a mystery pack. The service was very good, the order was sent out fast and what I got was very interesting and new to me.

Doughnut Burger (Luther Burger) : Recipe

Unfortunately at the time of making this the shops near me didn’t have any normal glazed donuts so I just opted for this one instead.

A Luther Burger, or doughnut burger (among several naming variations), is a hamburger or cheeseburger with one or more glazed doughnuts in place of the bun.

YIELD 2 burgers

INGREDIENTS

For The Burger

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 1 Egg

Topping

  • 6 slices quality smokey bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 2 glazed donuts

Extras for Candied Bacon

  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Burger

  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

The Donuts

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 

End Product

I added some cheddar at the bottom just to be different 🙂
  1. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.
  2. Top each burger with bacon and two slices of cheese

Enjoy
