In 1971, when a new public library opened in Troy, Michigan, famous authors and artists were invited to write letters to the city's youngest readers, extolling the many benefits of libraries. One of the loveliest was from E.B. White, author of Charlotte's Web. Plus, you may think navel-gazing is a relatively new idea -- but it goes back at least to the 14th century, when meditating monks really did look like they were studying their bellies! Also, why don't actors in movies say goodbye at the end of a phone conversation? For that matter, why don't some people answer their smartphones with "Hello"? Plus, a poetic puzzle, duke's mixture, small as the little end of nothing, Chesapeake Bay crabbing lingo, omphaloskepsis, nightingale, light a shuck, bumpity-scrapples, the big mahoff, and If a bullfrog had wings, he wouldn't bump his butt.

In 1803, a shy British pharmacist wrote a pamphlet that made him a reluctant celebrity. The reason? He proposed a revolutionary new system for classifying clouds--with Latin names we still use today, like cumulus, cirrus, and stratus. Also: when reading aloud to children, what's the best way to present a dialect that's different from your own? Finally, recycling our trash demands close attention. Professionals in the recycling business say it's important to be sure that an item is truly recyclable. If you're only guessing when you toss it in the blue bin, then you're engaging in wishcycling -- and that does more harm than good.  Plus, T Jones, diegetic vs. non-diegetic, affixes, solastalgia, and since Sooki was a calf.

Silence comes in lots of different forms. In fact, says writer Paul Goodman, there are several kinds: There's the noisy silence of "resentment and self-recrimination," and the helpful, participatory silence of actively listening to someone speak. Plus, the strange story behind the English words "grotesque" and "antic": both involve bizarre paintings found in ancient Roman ruins. Finally, the whirring sound of a Betsy bug and a moth's dusty wings give rise to picturesque English words and phrases. Plus millers, keysmash, subpar, placer mining, dinklepink and padiddle, machatunim and consuegros, and to clock someone.

There was a time when William Shakespeare was just another little 7-year-old in school. Classes in his day were demanding -- and all in Latin. A new book argues that this rigorous curriculum actually nurtured the creativity that later flourished in Shakespeare's writing. Don't know Latin? You can still adapt those approaches to stretch and hone your own mind. Plus, why do we refer to an unpredictable person as a loose cannon? The answer lies in the terrifying potential of a large weapon aboard a warship. And when a delivery driver's wife teases him about cavorting with strumpets, he asks: What exactly IS a strumpet? All that, plus picayune, sit on a tack, the many meanings of fell, a Spanish idiom about oysters and boredom, pickthank, a puzzle about rhyming words, a terrifying passage from Victor Hugo, tacos called mariachis, and the juice was worth the squeeze.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Montag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Schon eine halbe Million Corona-Tote Seit Beginn der Corona-Pandemie sind weltweit bereits mehr als 500.000 Menschen an den Folgen einer COVID-19-Infektion gestorben. Das geht aus neuen Daten der Johns-Hopkins-Universität in Baltimore hervor. Demnach hatte kurz zuvor zudem die Zahl der weltweit bestätigten Infektionen die Zehn-Millionen-Marke überschritten. Die meisten Todesfälle haben die USA zu beklagen. Dort starben inzwischen mehr als 125.000 Menschen an einer Corona-Infektion. An zweiter Stelle liegt Brasilien mit mehr als 57.000 Toten vor Großbritannien mit knapp 44.000 Todesopfern. Neuer Anlauf für Corona-Resolution Deutschland will einen neuen Vorstoß für eine Resolution des UN-Sicherheitsrats zur Corona-Pandemie starten. Es sei ein "Armutszeugnis" für das höchste Gremium der Vereinten Nationen, dass es sich bei diesem Thema bisher nicht einig geworden sei, sagte Bundesaußenminister Heiko Maas der Deutschen Presse-Agentur. Deutschland übernimmt am 1. Juli für einen Monat den Vorsitz im Sicherheitsrat. Eine Corona-Resolution ist dort bisher an einem Streit zwischen den USA und China gescheitert, in dem es vor allem um die Rolle der Weltgesundheitsorganisation WHO geht. Duda muss in Stichwahl Bei der Präsidentenwahl in Polen hat der nationalkonservative Amtsinhaber Andrzej Duda die für eine Wiederwahl nötige absolute Mehrheit verpasst. Laut Prognosen kam er auf 41,8 Prozent der Stimmen. Damit muss Duda in zwei Wochen in einer Stichwahl gegen den oppositionellen Kandidaten Rafal Trzaskowski antreten, der 30,4 Prozent erzielte. Eine zweite Amtszeit Dudas würde das Machtmonopol der polnischen Regierungspartei PiS weiter untermauern. Herbe Wahlschlappe für Partei von Macron Bei der Endrunde der Kommunalwahlen in Frankreich haben die Grünen und ihre Verbündeten beispiellose Erfolge errungen. In einer ganzen Reihe von größeren Städten konnten sie die Rathäuser erobern. In der Hauptstadt Paris sicherte sich die sozialistische Bürgermeisterin Anne Hidalgo im Bündnis mit den Grünen klar die Wiederwahl für sechs Jahre. Die Partei von Präsident Emmanuel Macron "La République en Marche" wurde hingegen vielerorts für die Reformpolitik und das Corona-Krisenmanagement der Regierung abgestraft. Mississippi trennt sich von umstrittener Flagge Inmitten der Rassismusdebatte in den USA hat das Parlament von Mississippi entschieden, ein Symbol der einstigen Sklavenhalterstaaten aus der Flagge des US-Bundesstaates zu entfernen. Beide Kongresskammern stimmten dafür, dass eine Arbeitsgruppe ein neues Design vorlegen soll. Das Andreaskreuz mit 13 Sternen soll entfallen, weil es an die sogenannten Konföderierten erinnert, die im Bürgerkrieg an der Sklaverei festhalten wollten. Mississippi ist der letzte US-Bundesstaat, dessen Flagge noch dieses Symbol enthält. Airbus baut deutlich weniger Flugzeuge Europas größter Flugzeughersteller Airbus will als Reaktion auf die Luftfahrt-Krise für zwei Jahre seine Produktion um 40 Prozent drosseln. Von der meistverkauften Baureihe A320 sollen nur noch 40 Maschinen pro Monat gebaut werden, wie Airbus-Chef Guillaume Faury mitteilte. Derzeit seien viele fertige Flugzeuge geparkt. Es werde bis Ende 2021 dauern, bevor Produktion und Auslieferungen wieder im Einklang stünden, sagte Faury der Tageszeitung "Die Welt". Im Juli will er den genauen Umfang des Stellenabbaus bei Airbus verkünden. VfB Stuttgart vor Comeback Der VfB Stuttgart kehrt in die erste Fußball-Bundesliga zurück. Der Klub blieb am letzten Spieltag trotz einer Eins-zu-drei-Niederlage gegen Darmstadt auf dem zweiten Tabellenplatz der Zweiten Liga. Der VfB-Stuttgart folgt damit als Aufsteiger Arminia Bielefeld.

Comenzaremos la primera parte del programa hablando de la muerte del líder indígena Paulinho Paiakan a causa del coronavirus; y de la decisión que tomará la Justicia británica sobre quién tiene el control del oro venezolano en el Banco de Inglaterra, si Nicolás Maduro o Juan Guaidó. Hablaremos también del descubrimiento de fósiles en Argentina y Mongolia que indican que ciertas especies de dinosaurios ponían huevos de cáscara blanda; y para finalizar, de las ceremonias de los premios Oscar y Baftas 2021, que serán postergadas por dos meses.   Hoy, en Trending in Latin America les tenemos dos diálogos muy interesantes.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.EU-Ratspräsidentschaft: Merkel konzentriert sich auf Bekämpfung der Corona-Krise Der Brexit hat in den kommenden sechs Monaten für Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel keine übergeordnete Priorität. In einem Interview mit sechs europäischen Zeitungen bezweifelte sie, dass die britische Regierung ein ernsthaftes Interesse an einem geregelten Brexit hat. Während der deutschen EU-Ratspräsidentschaft wolle sie ihre politische Energie vor allem in den wirtschaftlichen Aufbau Europas nach der COVID-19-Pandemie investieren, sagte die Kanzlerin. Die Corona-Krise sei eine "Herausforderung beispiellosen Ausmaßes". EU plant strenge Kriterien für eine Lockerung von Reisebeschränkungen In der EU zeichnet sich eine Einigung auf strenge Kriterien für die geplante Lockerung der Corona-Einreisebeschränkungen ab. Demnach werden Reisende aus Ländern wie den USA, Russland und Brasilien auch nach Ablauf dieses Monats nur in Ausnahmefällen in die EU kommen dürfen. Lediglich für Menschen aus rund einem Dutzend Ländern wie Südkorea oder Neuseeland könnten die geltenden Einreisebeschränkungen im Juli aufgehoben werden. Zu der vorläufigen Liste sollen sich die Regierungen der EU-Mitglieder bis Samstagabend äußern. Immer mehr Konzerne setzen ihre Werbung auf Facebook aus Ein Werbeboykott soll Facebook, Instagram und Twitter zu einem stärkeren Vorgehen gegen rassistische und gewaltverherrlichende Inhalte bewegen. Der amerikanische Mobilfunkbetreiber Verizon will die Pause so lange aufrechterhalten, bis Facebook eine akzeptable Lösung anbiete. Coca-Cola und Honda wollen im Juli keine Anzeigen platzieren, um ein Zeichen gegen "Hass und Rassismus" zu setzen. Der britisch-niederländische Konsumgüterriese Unilever macht bis zum Jahresende keine Werbung mehr in US-Onlinenetzwerken - und verweist dabei auf die Präsidentschaftswahl im November. UN-Experten werfen China Missachtung fundamentaler Menschenrechte vor Unabhängige Experten der Vereinten Nationen haben sich alarmiert über die Unterdrückung von Freiheitsrechten in China gezeigt. Etwa 50 UN-Sonderberichterstatter und Menschenrechtler fordern deshalb eine Sondersitzung des Weltsicherheitsrats. Dabei müsse der Posten eines UN-Sonderberichterstatters oder eines UN-Sondergesandten für China beschlossen werden. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit müsse die Weltgemeinschaft auf Pekings neues Sicherheitsgesetz für Hongkong legen. Auch der Umgang mit Uiguren und Tibetern sowie die Verfolgung von Bürgerrechtlern sollte genau beobachtet werden. Die neue irische Regierung steht Mehr als vier Monate nach der Parlamentswahl hat Irland eine neue Regierung. Die ehemals verfeindeten Mitte-rechts-Parteien Fine Gael und Fianna Fail sowie die Grünen haben in Urabstimmungen ihren ausgehandelten Koalitionsvertrag angenommen. Noch an diesem Samstag soll Fianna-Fail-Chef Micheal Martin zum neuen Premier gewählt werden. Die Grünen werden dabei zum Königsmacher. Sie nahmen den Deal mit einer Drei-Viertel-Mehrheit an. Das Regierungsprogramm ist stark von umweltpolitischen Zielen geprägt. Das Amt des Regierungschefs wird zwischen den beiden großen Koalitionspartnern rotieren. Erster Testflug für Boeings Krisenflieger steht bevor Seit 15 Monaten bleiben weltweit alle Passagierflugzeuge des Typs Boeing 737 MAX am Boden. Nun zeichnet sich ein Schlüsselmoment für die Wiederinbetriebnahme des Unglücksfliegers ab. Anfang nächster Woche dürfte die US-Flugaufsichtsbehörde FAA einen ersten Probeflug der überarbeiteten Maschine genehmigen. Der Zulassungstest soll mindestens zwei Tage dauern. Das Flugverbot für die 737 MAX wird aber wohl nicht vor September aufgehoben. Die Luftfahrtbehörde muss noch zahlreiche Sicherheitsüberprüfungen abschließen und auch neue Verfahren für die Pilotenausbildung genehmigen. Mann in Glasgow sticht auf sechs Menschen ein und wird erschossen Eine Woche nach dem Messerangriff im südenglischen Reading hat ein Mann in Schottland auf sechs Menschen eingestochen und wurde von der Polizei erschossen. Sicherheitskräfte seien nur Minuten nach dem Angriff bei einem Hotel in der Innenstadt von Glasgow eingetroffen, teilte die Polizei mit. Die sechs Verletzten wurden in Krankenhäusern behandelt. Medienberichte, nach denen der Angreifer zwei Menschen getötet haben sollte, waren falsch. Nach Angaben aus Sicherheitskreisen gab es zunächst keine Hinweise auf einen möglichen terroristischen Hintergrund.

A clever pun can make the difference between a so-so phrase and a memorable one. The phrase "the last straw" refers to an old fable about too many items in a load, but it takes on a whole new meaning in a public-awareness campaign about the environment. Also, why do we use the term "mob scene" to refer to an unruly crowd? This term originated in the world of theater. Finally: the Basque language spoken in the westernmost Pyrenees has long posed a linguistic mystery. Its origins are unclear and it's unlike any other language in the region. But Basque is enjoying something of a revival in a surprising place . . . Idaho. Plus, sun dog, ob-gyn, mob scene, George, Double George, Geezum Pete, and somersault vs. winter pepper.   Read full show notes, hear hundreds of free episodes, send your thoughts and questions, and learn more on the A Way with Words website: https://waywordradio.org/.

Le 25 mai 2020, à Minneapolis aux États-Unis, un homme, George Floyd, est mort asphyxié par un policier durant ce qui devait être une simple arrestation. Ce nouveau cas de violence policière contre un citoyen afro-américain a provoqué des réactions non seulement aux États-Unis, mais dans le monde entier, derrière le slogan "Black lives matter". En France, en 2016, un jeune homme de 24 ans, Adama Traoré, est lui aussi décédé après avoir été asphyxié par trois gendarmes lors d'une arrestation. Si les résultats de l'autopsie officielle ont innocenté les agents, une nouvelle expertise médicale demandée par la famille Traoré a au contraire prouvé leur responsabilité dans la mort de la victime. Dans l'hexagone aussi, la question d'un racisme endémique au sein de la police revient de plus en plus souvent. Mais pas seulement dans la police. Le Rassemblement national, un parti d'extrême droite ouvertement xénophobe, semble séduire de plus en plus d'électeurs français et se rapprocher du pouvoir. Dans cet épisode, nous essaierons de comprendre d'où vient le racisme et pourquoi il est toujours aussi présent malgré les valeurs de tolérance et de respect promues dans les sociétés démocratiques. Lire la transcription de l'épisode.

Our writer was surprised when he came across "clew" instead of "clue" in a detective novel from 1929, and the explanation includes a great story about the origin of the word "clue."

If you suspect there's a connection, you're right!  Also, the link between tiny mythical creatures called trolls and modern-day mischief-makers, plus the stories behind the color names we give to horses. Finally, wise advice about fending off despair: learn something new.

Sometimes it's a challenge to give a book a chance: How many pages should you read before deciding it's not worth your time? There's a new formula to help with that decision -- and it's all based on your age. And: Have you ever noticed someone mouthing your words as YOU speak? That conversational behavior can be disconcerting, but there may be good reasons behind it. Finally, a punk rock band debates the pronunciation of a word that means "tribute": is it HOM-age, OM-age, or something else entirely? Plus, chevrolegs, Pat and Charlie, on fleek, hornswoggle, 20-couple, coinkydink, and the correct way to say Nevada.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Freitag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.US-Repräsentantenhaus für Polizeireform Nach dem Tod des Afroamerikaners George Floyd bei einem Polizeieinsatz hat das US-Repräsentantenhaus Pläne für eine Polizeireform verabschiedet. Der von dieser Kongresskammer beschlossene Gesetzestext hat aber keine Chance auf Umsetzung. Das Repräsentantenhaus wird von den oppositionellen Demokraten dominiert. Im US-Senat stellen dagegen die Republikaner die Mehrheit, diese lehnen das Vorhaben ab. Die Demokraten verlangen etwa ein Verbot von Würgegriffen durch Polizisten und die Einschränkung der sogenannten qualifizierten Immunität für die Beamten. Sie erschwert Klagen von Opfern von Polizeigewalt. Geberkonferenz sagt Sudan 1,8 Milliarden Dollar zu Auf einer Geberkonferenz sind dem krisengeplagten Sudan finanzielle Hilfen in Höhe von 1,8 Milliarden Dollar zugesichert worden. Das Geld soll unter anderem dazu dienen, die Ärmsten im Land durch die Wirtschaftskrise zu bringen und den Übergang zur Demokratie abzusichern. Deutschland will 150 Millionen Euro beisteuern. Nach dem Militärputsch vor rund einem Jahr und der Absetzung des autoritären Herrschers Omar al-Baschir herrscht im Sudan eine Übergangsregierung. Rettungsschiff "Alan Kurdi" fährt nach Spanien Das in Italien festgesetzte deutsche Rettungsschiff "Alan Kurdi" ist wieder frei und fährt nun nach Spanien. Die Behörden in Italien hatten das Schiff Anfang Mai in Palermo an die Kette gelegt und technische Mängel kritisiert. Davon seien nun einige behoben worden, der Rest müsse nach der Wartung in Spanien kontrolliert werden, erklärte die Küstenwache. Von der Hilfsorganisation Sea-Eye hieß es, im Juli könne es keinen Einsatz der "Alan Kurdi" geben. UN-Experte beklagt Abbau von Menschenrechten Der UN-Sonderberichterstatter für Folter, Nils Melzer, hat eine "weltweite Erosion der Menschenrechte" beklagt. Diese erstrecke sich von China mit Hongkong und den Uiguren über Russland bis hin zur Polizeigewalt in den USA und deren Angriffe auf den Internationalen Strafgerichtshof, sagte Melzer der Deutschen Welle. Anlass für die Äußerungen ist der Internationale Tag der Unterstützung von Folteropfern an diesem Freitag. Das Bürgerkriegsland Syrien habe sogar "ein notorisches Foltersystem", erklärte Melzer weiter. Es sei sehr wichtig, dass dieses System ans Tageslicht gebracht werde. Integrationsbeauftragte will Gesundheit ausländischer Arbeiter schützen Angesichts der massiven Ausbreitung des Coronavirus in der deutschen Fleischindustrie hat die Integrationsbeauftragte der Bundesregierung, Annette Widmann-Mauz, bessere Arbeitsbedingungen für ausländische Arbeitskräfte gefordert. "Wer nach Deutschland kommt und hier schwerste Arbeiten verrichtet, muss vor Gesundheitsrisiken und Arbeitsausbeutung geschützt werden", sagte Widmann-Mauz der "Rheinischen Post". Es sei höchste Zeit, die Arbeits- und Wohnbedingungen zu verbessern, damit derartige Infektionsfälle nicht mehr vorkämen. Liverpool nach 30 Jahren wieder Fußballmeister Zum ersten Mal seit 30 Jahren ist der FC Liverpool wieder englischer Fußballmeister. Die Mannschaft von Jürgen Klopp profitierte davon, dass der Tabellenzweite Manchester City beim FC Chelsea mit 1:2 verlor. Das Team von Coach Pep Guardiola, das sich in den vergangenen beiden Spielzeiten die Meisterschaft sicherte, hat damit rechnerisch keine Chance mehr, den Titel zu verteidigen.

That restless, antsy, stir-crazy feeling goes back to the days when you could find yourself literally cooped up all winter in a cabin on the wild frontier. Finally, in Hungarian, there's a whole genre of silly jokes that involve a character called the aggressive piglet, with a punchline screamed in your most obnoxious voice. What did the aggressive piglet say when he fell into a well?

Wir beginnen den ersten Teil unseres Programms mit der Überlegung der Europäischen Union, die Einreise von Reisenden aus den USA, Russland und Brasilien in die EU auf unbestimmte Zeit zu verbieten, da die Zahl der Coronavirus-Fälle in diesen Ländern zunimmt. Anschließend sprechen wir über die Ankündigung Saudi-Arabiens am Montag, die Hadsch-Pilgerreise nach Mekka wegen der Coronavirus-Pandemie in diesem Jahr für Ausländer abzusagen. Danach diskutieren wir über eine Studie, die in der Zeitschrift Scientific Reports veröffentlicht wurde und die zeigt, dass wilde Kakadus genauso intelligent sind wie im Labor aufgezogene. Und zum Schluss sprechen wir darüber, wie Mode eine wichtige Rolle bei der sozialen Distanzierung spielen kann. Weiter geht es danach mit „Trending in Germany“, dem zweiten Teil unseres Programms. In dieser Woche werden wir die Korruptionsvorwürfe gegen Philipp Amthor diskutieren, den aufsteigenden neuen Star der konservativen Partei CDU und jüngsten Abgeordneten des Deutschen Bundestags. Außerdem sprechen wir darüber, dass die Rundfunkbeiträge für die öffentlich-rechtlichen Sendeanstalten nächstes Jahr erhöht werden sollen. Diese Zwangsabgabe ist jedoch umstritten. - Einreiseverbot in die EU: USA, Russland, Brasilien auf der vorläufigen Liste - Saudi-Arabien sagt die Hadsch-Pilgerreise ab - Wilde Kakadus sind so klug wie ihre im Labor aufgezogenen Artgenossen - Die Rolle der Mode bei der sozialen Distanzierung - CDU-Jungstar Philipp Amthor unter Korruptionsverdacht - Die Rundfunkbeiträge sollen erhöht werden

From https://www.gonaturalenglish.com/cant-understand-native-english-movies-netflix-series/ Why is it that you can understand some English speakers and not others? Why is it even harder to understand native English speakers in movies or Netflix series?   At the end of this, I’ll share how to learn English online with live native tutoring, with the opportunity to get 100% of your tuition refunded!!   This is how your English teacher talks.    And this is how other people might talk.   A lot of people learn English with movies and Netflix series, becoming fluent for free and having fun doing it. Many of them never even took traditional English classes.   Then, there’s you. YOU probably learned English in a classroom. You are working hard, studying to memorize vocabulary, grammar rules, and maybe you’re going to sit for a test like the IELTS or TOEFL.    But none of these things prepare you to understand the real world of English speakers. In fact, tests like the IELTS and TOEFL have been engineered to keep regular people out of programs and opportunities, while rewarding rich students who have money for test-prep programs.   Maybe you feel like your English textbook has lied to you about what you really need to communicate in English. You’ve put English courses and test prep books on your credit card, but you still can’t speak with or understand native speakers.   In Netflix series and in American movies you hear slang words you never learned in class, accents that your teacher never showed you, cultural references that you never had time to discuss in class (or maybe your teacher didn’t even know) and most of all — a lot of dialogues that never made it into your textbook. Imagine if a movie had a scene about the famous textbook phrase, the book is on the table?!   Fluency seems like a distant dream. How do they do it? How do people understand and even learn English with movies and Netflix series?   Seeing all those people who learned English as a second language speaking fluently and confidently, it baffles you, especially at such a young age.   The dreams you have of speaking English fluently seem like just that – distant dreams. You realize that English classes are a joke, and you’re on the losing side of this kind of education that is not working.   But what if I told you this is wrong? There’s a way to get there. There’s an equation behind fluency!    I’ll warn you it’s not always easy, it can be a challenge, but there are clear steps you can take on your own, for free, to reach fluency.   But at the end of this road lies freedom, the freedom of fluency and never having to take another class.   So, are you with me? Let’s get fluent. Let’s go.   What do you really think about fluency? Do you think that only other people, people who are smarter, younger or who have the chance to live abroad can reach it?    Maybe you even look at people who become fluent in English with some disbelief. Did they pay a lot of money to study abroad? Or maybe they grew up with an English-speaking friend or family member?    You look at people who have become fluent and wonder how did they get there? The truth is, they didn’t get there taking traditional English classes. They have a better formula for becoming fluent than you do.   So again you wonder, what is this formula?   Stop chasing fluency.    Fluency comes to you in direct proportion to the amount you use English with real materials and in real conversations.    After the high beginner level, you should be using native-speaker materials to learn like Netflix series, movies, books, etc and having conversations with natives (and non-native speakers too of course).   If you keep speaking English, people will speak to you in English. Why? It’s about communication. And when you use more English, you’re giving yourself more chances to practice and learn. Even if you make mistakes, those are not bad. Those are changes to make and improve.    If you want fluency, you shouldn’t be chasing fluency, you should be using English in every way possible.   Listen to the English around you, and if you don’t have English around you — create it!   Remember that understanding English can’t be done by reading about it. Speaking English can’t be done by reading the rules. It’s like trying to become a champion soccer player by reading about soccer on Google.    There will always be someone better than you at English. Don’t chase perfection. Don’t compare yourself. English is about connection, not perfection. Specifically, you need to stop chasing perfection in English and start chasing immersion or input. Increase the English that you expose yourself to — I’ve mentioned many ways to do this in previous videos over the past 9 years (Netflix series and movies are 2 great ways).   You must use native-speaker materials because here you will also get information about culture, pop culture and references that people make in communication. Do you know what MLK day is, or who JFK was? These are both important people in American culture and many of the English learners I’ve met do not have a clue who they are because their English textbook doesn’t use real life examples.    You need to get out of your comfort zone and make more native-speaker friends. Nowadays it’s not an excuse that you live in a non-English speaking country or you can’t leave your house — if you can get Internet service, you can get English-speaking friends.   You need to watch and listen to English with an active mind, making notes of what you’re learning. Don’t be passive or you’ll never remember it.    Have fun, enjoy the journey, and be patient with yourself. It takes time.   So, you either will continue to use your time dreaming about becoming fluent in English, or doing it. Which will you decide?    For most of you, it’s not just about English. It’s about the freedom, the feeling, the ability to talk to anyone you want, and understand anything you want, when you want, without checking the dictionary or feeling confused.   The most important thing you can do is keep listening, keep speaking, and fail more, make more mistakes, make more misunderstandings, and learn from them.

A continuación, practicarás tu fluidez con una lección de ejemplo de mini-historia. La mejor manera para aprender a hablar sin traducir mentalmente. Muy bien ¿Te ha pasado alguna vez que estás con alguien y no sabes de qué hablar? A mí a veces me ha pasado. De vez en cuando nos encontramos con situaciones donde es difícil continuar la conversación.  Un ejemplo es lo que llega a pasar en un ascensor.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Corona-Infektionsrate in Brasilien steigt steil an In Brasilien hat die Rate der Neuinfektionen mit dem Coronavirus stark zugenommen. Innerhalb von 24 Stunden wurden weitere 42.725 Ansteckungen verzeichnet, wie das Gesundheitsministerium in Brasília mitteilte. Dies ist die bislang zweithöchste Zahl von registrierten Neuinfektionen im bevölkerungsreichsten lateinamerikanischen Land. Brasilien ist nach den USA das weltweit am stärksten von der Pandemie betroffene Land. Das gilt sowohl in Hinblick auf die Zahl der Infektionen als auch der Todesfälle. Mehrere brasilianische Bundesstaaten hatten dennoch zuletzt die Corona-Restriktionen gelockert. Wieder steigende Zahl der Corona-Infizierten in den USA In den USA nimmt die Zahl der Corona-Infektionen deutlich zu. Nach Angaben der Johns-Hopkins-Universität wurden binnen 24 Stunden 35.900 neue Infektionsfälle verzeichnet - fast so viele wie zu Beginn der Corona-Krise im April. Besonders steigt die Zahl in Florida und Texas. Die Bundesstaaten New York, New Jersey und Connecticut ordneten deshalb an, dass aus mehreren Staaten des Südens kommende Reisende in Quarantäne müssen. Die Gesamtzahl der registrierten Infektionen in den USA liegt nach Angaben der Universität bei knapp 2,4 Millionen. Die Zahl der verzeichneten Todesopfer stieg um weitere 756 Fälle auf etwa 121.900. USA: Verdächtige nach tödlichem Angriff auf schwarzen Jogger angeklagt Drei weiße Männer sind nach dem Tod des schwarzen Joggers Ahmaud Arbery im US-Bundesstaat Georgia vor vier Monaten unter anderem wegen Mordes angeklagt worden. Arbery wurde beim Joggen im Februar in der Stadt Brunswick getötet. Die Ermittlungen kamen erst mehr als zwei Monate später richtig in Gang, als der Fall durch ein verstörendes Handy-Video der Tat breite Aufmerksamkeit erlangte. Den Ermittlern zufolge hatten die Tatverdächtigen Arbery zunächst mit ihrem Fahrzeug verfolgt und dann mit Schusswaffen konfrontiert. Abstimmung über größte Verfassungsänderung in Russland beginnt In Russland startet die umstrittene Abstimmung über die größte Verfassungsänderung in der Geschichte des Landes. Rund 110 Millionen Wahlberechtigte können sich sechs Tage lang bis zum kommenden Mittwoch an dem Referendum beteiligen. Der letzte Abstimmungstag am 1. Juli wird zugleich der Hauptwahltag sein. Die Wähler entscheiden über ein Paket von Änderungen. Auf Kritik stößt die Ausweitung der Machtbefugnisse für den Präsidenten. Der 67 Jahre alte Kreml-Chef Wladimir Putin könnte 16 weitere Jahre bis 2036 im Amt bleiben. Zehn Tote nach schwerem Erdstoß in Mexiko Nach dem Erdbeben der Stärke 7,5 vom Dienstag in Mexiko ist die Zahl der Todesopfer auf zehn gestiegen. Weitere 23 Menschen wurden verletzt, wie der Chef des Zivilschutzes, David León, mitteilte. Der seismologische Dienst Mexikos meldete innerhalb von 24 Stunden mehr als 1700 Nachbeben mit einer Stärke von bis zu 5,5. Deutlicher Wahlsieg der mongolischen Regierungspartei In der Mongolei hat die regierende Volkspartei die Parlamentswahl überraschend deutlich gewonnen. Nach den vorläufigen Ergebnissen der Auszählung erreichte die Partei von Ministerpräsident Ukhnaa Khurelsukh mit gut 80 Prozent der Stimmen mehr als 60 Sitze. Es ist das erste Mal, dass einer Regierungspartei in der Mongolei die Wiederwahl gelang. Die Oppositionskräfte errangen nur etwas mehr als ein Dutzend Mandate. Nach Experteneinschätzung belohnten die Wähler damit auch den Umgang der Regierung mit der Corona-Krise. Die Mongolei zählt bisher keinen Toten und nur rund 200 Infektionen. Deutsche Lufthansa einigt sich mit Gewerkschaft UFO Kurz vor der außerordentlichen Hauptversammlung hat sich die Deutsche Lufthansa mit der Flugbegleitergewerkschaft UFO auf ein Sparpaket verständigt. Es umfasse einen vierjährigen Kündigungsschutz sowie ein Einsparvolumen von mehr als einer halben Milliarde Euro bis Ende 2023, teilte die Kabinengewerkschaft mit. Die Aktionäre der Lufthansa stimmen an diesem Donnerstag über das milliardenschwere staatliche Rettungspaket für die von der Corona-Krise getroffene Airline ab. Es wird nach einer tagelangen Zitterpartie voraussichtlich eine Mehrheit finden.

The game of baseball has always inspired colorful commentary. Sometimes that means using familiar words in unfamiliar ways. The word "stuff," for example, can refer to a pitcher's repertoire, or to the spin on a ball, or what happens to the ball after a batter hits it. Also: nostalgia for summer evenings and fond terms for fireflies, plus a word to describe that feeling when your favorite restaurant closes for good. "Noshtalgia," anyone? And: homonyms, forswunk, sweetbreads, get on the stick, back friend, farblonjet, and taco de ojo.   Read full show notes, hear hundreds of free episodes, send your thoughts and questions, and learn more on the A Way with Words website: https://waywordradio.org/.

Aghast that Gyles still thinks ‘YOLO’ is a new word, Susie talks us through the process of creating new words and, more importantly, how to get them into the dictionary. Via oldies like ‘groupies’, ‘burtons’ and ‘velcro’ Susie discusses which words stick and passes judgment on whether new words like ‘Covidiot’ are here for the long haul. She reminds us that you can’t campaign for a word to be added to the dictionary (as the Potato Council found to their disappointment)… but that won’t stop Gyles and his passion for the word ’snart’. We also go through your fascinating and mysterious nicknames for woodlice, Susie has her trio of wonderful words, and Gyles sends us off into the day with a lovely bit of Larkin.

Regardless of what magazines and articles say about fashion, everyone has their own unique, personal style. In this episode, Andrew and Suzanne describe their personal styles and talk about how they’ve changed over the years. Fun facts Men’s clothing has the buttons on the right side. Women’s buttons are on the left and sometimes the back. This is because some women used to be dressed by servants. As most people are right-handed, having the buttons on the left made it easier for the servants to button up the clothes.

We all have moments in our lives when we want to say, “I can’t help it!” Sometimes we’re looking for an excuse. Sometimes we really can’t change something about our lives. In this Catch Word episode, Andrew and Kassy look at the different ways this phrase can be used. Fun facts In this episode, our hosts talk about food cravings.

One secret to writing well is . . . there is no secret! There's no substitute for simply sitting down day after day to practice the craft and learn from your mistakes. Plus, childhood mixups around word definitions can lead to some funny stories. After all, if you didn't know any better, why wouldn't you assume a thesaurus is a prehistoric creature? Finally, the word groovy wasn't always positive. In the 1880s, it meant just the opposite: someone stuck in a rut or in a groove. Plus: in the meantime, jetty, thick as inkle-weavers, keg of nails, sauna, sofa vs. couch, chirurgeon, fat chance, and a newfangled brain teaser about archaic words.

Have you ever googled your own name and found someone else who goes by the very same moniker? There's a word for that: googleganger.

There's a proverb that goes "Beloved children have many names." That's at least as true when it comes to the names we give our pets. "Fluffy" becomes "Fluffers" becomes "FluffFace" becomes "FlufferNutter, Queen of the Universe." Speaking of the celestial, how DID the top politician in California come to be named Governor Moonbeam, anyway? Blame it on a clever newspaper columnist. And: still more names for those slowpokes in the left-turn lane. Plus munge and kludge, monkey blood and chopped liver, a German word for pout, and the land of the living.

An American English Conversation about The 'New Normal' Life. As things start to open slowly after a long quarantine period, Amy and Curtis share some of their ideas and concerns about the simple things they used to enjoy without a second thought... Eating at a restaurant, traveling by airplane, or even watching a sunset. They also discuss the new strategies and the new way that they plan to do these activities in the future. ** American English Conversation about The 'New Normal' Life ** ** Audio Transcription: ** Amy:  Hi, everybody. My name is Amy Whitney and I’m here with Curtis Davies from Real English Conversations. Today we’re going to be having an interesting conversation talking about what the “new normal” is, or what we think is probably going to be happening over the next year as we get out of our houses and start to move around a little bit despite the fact that the coronavirus is still present in our lives. I think one of the first places that we can start to talk about is something that we completely took for granted before is a safe, normal everyday activity and that was eating out at restaurants.  So, Curtis, can you tell us a little bit about how we used to think about restaurants? Curtis:  Well, we used to really like going outside. We work from home and it was a chance two days or three days a week to go to some of our favorite restaurants. The restaurants here are really, really, good. So, we would just go out, enjoy the evening and it would feel very, very good because we were out of the house. Amy:  Exactly. We work at home all day so for us going out to have something to eat is a little bit of an escape from the workplace. Otherwise, as you can imagine, working from home all day, hanging around the house all night gets a little bit boring, and it’s nice to have a change of environment. So now we are not going out to restaurants. Do you remember the last time that we went out to a restaurant? End of Transcription Sample.

Hello and welcome to another season of Coffee Break Spanish! In level 1 we concentrated on learning useful words and phrases for a whole range of situations you’re likely to encounter on a trip to a Spanish-speaking part of the world. However, to a certain extent we’ve been concentrating on set phrases. In level 2 it’s now time to look more deeply at how the language is constructed, and you’ll learn to create the language yourself. Episode 1 introduces the idea of verbs and you’ll learn to conjugate a verb in its six forms. You’ll be talking about what you do at the weekend, and answering the question ¿Qué haces durante el fin de semana?.

How colors got their names, and a strange way to write. The terms "blue" and "orange" arrived in English via French, so why didn't we also adapt the French for black and white? Plus, not every example of writing goes in one direction across the page. In antiquity, people sometimes wrote right to left, then left to right, then back again -- the same pattern you use when mowing a lawn. There's a word for that! And: a whiff of those fragrant duplicated worksheets that used to be passed out in elementary schools. Do you call them mimeographed pages or ditto sheets? Also, three-way chili, hangry, frogmarch, the cat may look at the queen, hen turd tea, and the  rhetorical backoff I'm just saying.

Diesen Dialog hat Oliver mit Ellen eingesprochen – die beiden leben bei Augsburg und haben einen eigenen Podcast, das "Morgenradio". Das ist eine gute Alternative zum Radio am Morgen. Keine hysterisch-gutgelaunte Moderatoren und keine schlechten Nachrichten aus aller Welt, sondern zwei echte Menschen und eine gute Geschichte. Hier der Text des Dialoges: Hast du heute Zeit für einen Spaziergang? Leider nicht. Mein Sohn ist krank. Oh je. Was hat er denn? Er ist heute morgen mit Fieber aufgewacht. Er hat ein wenig Schnupfen und Husten. Und vorhin hat er gesagt, dass er Kopfweh hat. Das klingt nach einer Grippe. Ja, oder eine Erkältung. Er muss jetzt viel trinken. Ich habe ihn in der Schule entschuldigt. Gehst du mit ihm zum Arzt? Ich weiß es noch nicht. Wenn es ihm morgen nicht besser geht, werde ich mit ihm zum Kinderarzt gehen. Würde ich auch so machen. Du kannst ihm gegen das Kopfweh ein Schmerzmittel geben. Das werde ich tun. Ich habe einen Saft, der gegen Fieber und Schmerzen hilft. Ich hasse das Gefühl, ein krankes Kind zu haben. Ja, ich wäre auch lieber selber krank. Aber man kann es nicht ändern. Jetzt im Winter sind einfach viele Viren unterwegs. In der Schule haben die Kinder viel Kontakt zueinander. Da stecken sie sich dann halt auch an. Aber als Kind war ich eigentlich ganz gerne krank, erinnere ich mich. Kein Wunder! Mein Sohn darf den ganzen Tag fernsehen, ich bringe ihm Essen und Getränke und die Katze hat auch bei ihm geschlafen. Das ist doch perfekt, um gesund zu werden. Stimmt! Na dann wünsche ich deinem Sohn gute Besserung. Danke. Ich werde es ihm ausrichten. Hoffentlich steckst du dich nicht an! Bleib gesund! Ich gebe mir Mühe. Ich war erst vor zwei Wochen krank. Wirklich? Das habe ich gar nicht mitbekommen! Doch, da konnte ich zwei Tage nicht in die Arbeit gehen. Zum Glück war ich am dritten Tag wieder fit, sonst hätte ich ein Attest vom Arzt gebraucht. Ich bin auch froh, wenn ich nicht zum Arzt muss. Im Wartezimmer zu sitzen mit lauter anderen kranken Menschen ist nicht so toll. Stimmt, aber manchmal geht es eben nicht anders. Vor allem wenn man ein Rezept braucht für Medikamente. Also dann - ich melde mich übermorgen nochmal bei dir. Vielleicht hast du dann Zeit für einen Spaziergang. Gerne. Bis dann! Bis dann!   Text der Episode als PDF: https://slowgerman.com/folgen/sg209a.pdf

The stories behind symbols and expressions around the world. The peace symbol popular during 1960's antiwar demonstrations had been around for decades.It originated in the antinuclear movement in the UK. Also, why do we say someone who's enthusiastic is all "gung ho"? The term derives from Chinese words meaning "work together." It was popularized by a Marine officer who admired the can-do spirit of Chinese industrial collectives. Plus, a tasty spin on stuffed foccacia that originated in eastern Sicily and is now a popular menu item in Omaha, Nebraska. Also: curling parents, sharking, ribey, a great book for young readers, and man lettuce.

Pendant longtemps, la santé était une affaire privée. Quand une personne tombait malade ou avait un accident, elle ne pouvait compter que sur ses ressources (et la solidarité familiale) pour s'en sortir. Mais au fil des siècles, et avec la création de l'État moderne, la santé est devenue une affaire publique. Aujourd'hui, dans la plupart des pays développés, les citoyens ont un «droit à la santé» garanti par l'État. En 2000, l'Organisation Mondiale de la Santé a placé la France en 1ère place de son classement des systèmes de santé dans le monde. Néanmoins, depuis une dizaine d'années, le modèle français est en crise, une crise aujourd'hui amplifiée par la pandémie du COVID-19. Dans cet épisode, nous verrons comment le système de santé français s'est construit, et quelles sont les menaces qui pèsent sur lui actuellement. Vous pouvez lire la transcription de l'épisode ici.

Vocabulary that trickles down from the top of the world. Malamute, kayak, and parka are just some of the words that have found their way into English from the language of indigenous people in northern climes. Also, the surprising language of physicists: in the 1970s, some scientists argued that two quarks should be called "truth" and "beauty." Finally, the many layers of words and worlds we invoke when we describe someone as "the apple of my eye."

Let’s not talk about the topic of today’s episode right now. So, how’s your day going? Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 4:00 Fast dialog: 18:29 Lila: Why aren’t you dating? I have so many friends who would love to go out with you. George: Let’s change the subject. Talking about my love life isn’t very interesting. Lila: But really, you’re not getting any younger and… George: Moving on! Have you seen any good movies lately? Lila: Listen, all of your friends are settling down and you don’t want to go through life alone and lonely… George: That reminds me, didn’t you say that you were going to get another dog so that Rover isn’t lonely when you’re not home? Lila: Forget about my dog. You remember Rachel, don’t you? She just broke up with her boyfriend and she’d be perfect for you. George: Speaking of Rachel, how is her mother? Wasn’t she in the hospital? Lila: If Rachel isn’t your type, how about Amina? She has great legs and I know you’re a leg man. George: And now for something completely different…How is your diet coming along? Have you lost any weight yet? Lila: I don’t really want to talk about my weight. George: But I think you’re having trouble shedding those pounds, right? I have lots of suggestions on what you can do. Lila: Anyway, as I said before, I don’t really want to talk about my diet… George: You need to cut out sweets if you want to lose weight. Are you eating too many sweets? Lila: That’s none of your business! George: My sentiments exactly! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse

Puis, nous aurons une conversation sur une étude récente publiée par The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health sur les effets de la privation sociale sur le développement des adolescents et leur santé mentale.
