Give us a fancy food gadget and something strange happens: optimism bubbles, eyes glaze and suddenly even the most challenging of culinary creations seems nothing more than child’s play. Blanching? No problem. Fricassee? Idiot-proof. Steep? Hit me. And yet before you can say al dente, you’ve flambéed your worktop, blitzed your apron and swapped sugar for salt in your gluten-free, vegan-friendly, zero carb cake mix. So this week we decided to ditch the space-age processors for a back-to-basics cookery class… Read more
The old fashioned way to learn a language was to actually pay attention during French lessons at school. Unfortunately, if you’re anything like us then you probably spent most of your time looking up various Gallic swear words and giggling at your teacher’s accent, but now you’re a grown up, it’s not that cool to plead ignorance when it comes to foreign tongues. That’s why we’ve brought you some nifty ways to learn a new language. As the Germans say, super fantastisch! Well, we think so anyway…
On The Go

To teach or not to teach, that is a question? Here’s another question, what’s in it for you? We often hear stories about the alternative teaching experience, of teaching English, not from the perspective of a regular UK school syllabus, but as a foreign language. The important thing to think about is how a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) qualification can benefit you? Perhaps you’ve seen one of the great TEFL course deal packages on Wowcher.co.uk or you’ve heard about it from a friend. Well here is Wowcher’s guide to the benefits of a TEFL qualification and how it can open doors for you across the world… Read more
Who’s ready for some international sportsball then? Phwoar! Goals! Brazilians! A trophy! Kicking! You get the idea. That’s right, the time has finally come: that magical month or so out of every four years when we all gather round our newly-purchased HD TVs to yell advice at a bunch of professional athletes, all in the name of the beautiful game. Bobby Moore, 66, Wemb-er-ly, come on you England, phwoar!
Our boys are jetting off to Brazil to play in the greatest tournament on earth – bigger than the Superbowl, more fun than the Olympics and with more gratuitous shots of bikini-clad blondes than Crufts – it’s the World Cup, of course. This time around, our brave Lions’ first test on the inevitable route to glory comes in the form of Italy. The rugged, handsome, stylish Italy – pasta, Pavarotti, the Romans, The Godfather, moustaches. Italy.
We’re in no doubt that the team’s wise owl/manager Roy Hodgson has mentally prepared his team for this tough test in the searing Brazilian heat, but we ask are you ready? It’s always important to know your enemy – know what makes them tick, what they get out of bed in the morning for, what they eat, what they drink, and some other stuff. If we really want to cheer on our lads then we owe it to them to suss out this glorious country. So, without further ado we bring you the Wowcher guide to Italy – it’s an offer you can’t refuse… Read more

It’s no longer just saying ‘please’, ‘thanks’ and knowing which fork to use at dinner. Today we’ve got to consider how to behave on social media and when (or not!) to use our smartphone.

Here’s what you asked, and how he answered: Read more
