2 in 1: Become a Master Chef and Improve your Language Skills

MIAMI, Dec. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lingoda, the leading online language school, today announced its partnership with virtual cooking class company Fest Cooking just in time for the holidays. The companies will collaborate on a campaign centered around immersing oneself in a new culture by mastering a foreign dish and learning a new language. The companies are partnering to provide individuals with the opportunity to become more in touch with another country, and are offering one month of language classes— 4 free group classes— after completing a cooking class.

Fest Cooking, a virtual cooking school that bridges the gap between professional chefs and home cooks, will host two group classes on December 14th and 16th with French and Mexican-inspired dishes including French onion galette and carne asada tacos. The classes, led virtually by professional chefs, will be free to sign up for and run approximately 90 minutes long.

After completing the cooking class, students will receive a promo code valid to redeem free language classes of their choice. Lingoda currently offers courses in German, French and Spanish, in addition to English.

"The holidays are a time to sit back and focus on the things that really matter, whether it's learning a new skill or simply spending time with loved ones," said Michael Shangkuan, CEO of Lingoda. "Our partnership with Fest Cooking allows individuals to utilize this time to dive deeper into other cultures, presenting them with the opportunity to discover new dishes and also learn a new language."

"Fest Cooking is all about bringing people together," said Brit Obenauer, CEO and Founder of Fest Cooking. "We're happy to partner with a company like Lingoda that really understands the qualities at our core— creativity, curiosity, passion and empowerment. We're excited to see who we can reach with our classes."
