Atlanta, GA, July 21, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Foodies, gourmets and chowhounds can now learn culinary words and phrases in seven languages. Interspersed with illustrated example sentences in the style of a kitchen conversation, nine wine-, cooking- and spice-themed lessons make for a rapid assimilation of all the essential gastronomical lingo.
The language of wines is a difficult one, often only spoken among those in the know. But you don’t have to be an expert to express yourself about wine. Babbel makes possible an entry into the world of gastronomy by offering up the essential words and phrases on the themes of wine, spices and gastronomy in seven different languages.
Whether a Portuguese red wine tastes encorpado or floral, or is characterized by a harmonious palate (com un paladar harmonioso), one can practice the correct pronunciation thanks to the integrated speech recognition system. That can be especially helpful with words such as tire-bouchon (corkscrew in French) or yerbabuena (mint in Spanish).
The lessons consist of interactive speaking, reading, writing and listening exercises, and provide an easy introduction into a new language. The personalized review manager makes sure that learners review everything correctly at optimal intervals, and thereby commit the material to long-term memory.
Babbel mobile is there, too: The course can be accessed quickly on an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad on the way to a restaurant date or to the next wine tasting. The course “Wine, Food and Gastronomy” is available in the gourmet languages of French, Spanish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Swedish, Germans and English at http://www.babbel.com/learn-french-online/65390-new/91668-wine-food-and-gastronomy.
