  1. I do not have a favourite cake, as I am not a fan; it makes me feel nauseous so I tend to avoid it! I don’t know any cakes specific to countries either πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. Hope you enjoyed your cake πŸ’œ

    1. I would never have imagined that you don’t like cake! There are so many different types – do you dislike them all? Too much can definitely make anyone feel nauseous!

      1. I have disliked everything I have tried; I can’t see the attraction at all πŸ˜‚. I particularly loathe chocolate, but they all make me feel sick x

      2. Wow, think you’re the first person I have met that really dislikes cake. Have you tried ginger cake or banana bread? They are both quite strong flavours so lots of people either love them or hate them, but the texture is a bit less crumbly than some other cakes. Do you like other chocolate-flavoured things? (Like ice cream, etc). It’s funny how humans are so distinct – I hate caramel, always have, but everyone I know loves it!

      3. I have tried banana bread I think, not a fan. I love chocolate ice cream (is my 2nd favourite to mint in fact πŸ˜‚). I’m half and half with caramel. I like it in chocolate, but not ice cream, biscuits, cake etx x

      4. How funny! I very rarely have chocolate and only dark or white – dislike anything chocolate-flavoured or coffee-flavoured! Strawberry-flavoured on the other hand – yum!

  2. We’ve had quite a few cakes pass through our house this weekend as it was my husband’s birthday. This flash card would be helpful πŸ˜„

  3. Hiii! *bilingual person screams from another blog* πŸ˜€ I haven’t found very many bloggers who are interested in languages yet so I’m really excited you found my Twitter post! πŸ˜€ I’m fluent in English (duh!) and German and I’m teaching myself Japanese and French. So exciting! πŸ˜€ How long did it take you to learn Japanese? Did you live there for a time?

    1. Always happy to find more bilingual people and language nerds! I studied Japanese for about 7 months before going to study abroad in Japan for a year, then continued to study it casually for another 2 years. After graduation I went to China and focused solely on Chinese, but during my second year there ended up working with a Japanese company so had to brush up on my polite Japanese! Recently I haven’t been studying at all, but I read, watch TV and listen to news etc in Japanese….really need to practice more!
      How are you finding learning it?
      I’m trying to learn German at the moment (though to be honest have been quite lazy recently…) and am enjoying it, but it’s totally different from any other language I have studied before!
      What made you decide to learn Japanese and French?

      1. That’s so exciting! I would love to work abroad because it’s definitely one of the easiest ways to learn a language! πŸ˜€ (It’s so hard keeping up on languages in America. *sigh*)

        I find Japanese to be very easy. I mean. Kanji is a bit crazy, but hiragana, katakana, and the pronunciation is not difficult at all. I like that the sounds are very literal to the spelling (like in German).

        I learned Japanese before I traveled there fore two months. I was going alone so I needed to be able to at least make myself understood for essentials, but I wish I had kept with it and learned more. :/ I totally lost it once I got back to the U.S.

        And I decided to learn French (despite hating the language) because I have family in France and I thought it might be nice to visit them someday. :/ But it’s the hardest language by far for me. It’s ten times more difficult coming from a Germanic background and going into a Latin-based language. o.o
