German teacher Carol Bander has combined foreign language and cooking skills into her lesson.

The alien recipe that Bander handed out to each baker did not have a single English word in it. Still, the class managed to translate the paper into delicious treats.

“I’m taking this class to refresh my German skills,” said Jeff Long, 21, German. “It’s good practice. It’s hard to find people who speak German.”

Jeff is not the only person who appreciates Bander’s teaching method.

“Bander is the bomb,” said April Bates, 23, psychology. “I learn through listening.”

For students who are unsure of their foreign speaking ability, Long assures everyone that Bander does explain, in English, whatever her pupils do not understand.
