1. Spice things up in the kitchen. Cook a meal you'd normally order at your favorite restaurant using online recipes; CopyKat.com or RecipeGoldmine.com are good websites for this. Also, it's important to set the ambiance by playing some fun tunes or lighting candles on the table.

There are a number of YouTube videos and Podcasts specifically created to help people learn a foreign language. This is an inexpensive and interactive activity to do with your partner that is sure to help boost your common interests.
