The Science of Learning a Second Language
"All right emily kwong today. We are talking about the science of learning second language because you are learning mandarin chinese which like as far as a pandemic hobby goes more power to more bart. Right for real. Though it is a hard language to learn. Language itself actually is an incredible ability. If you think about it that we humans have it involves many parts of the brain and the study of language spans across many different disciplines. So bilingual's studied in at least three different fields linguistics psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Sarah phillips is a phd student in the linguistics department at new york university. And exactly the person. I wanted to call up to talk about language learning who. Yeah i remember sarah from our episode on six hundred like how the brain responds to sentences with confusing grammar or syntax. Yeah brains and language are hurt. Jam met in korea while her father was serving in the marine corps and they raised her bilingual here in the us. Learning korean was very important to be able to communicate with my mom's side. They family and the same way that growing up speaking african american english was very important in being able to communicate and be a part of my dad's family. She's got a really interesting backstory. And i told her about my project about taking mandarin class for two hours every monday flash cards on the other nights watching movies. I can't understand and listen to us.

The evidence that we had at that point was pretty clear but everything we've senses and has validated that the most likely solution we can't prove it. But the most likely solution is pretty straight forward that this came from the virology lab. They were conducting military activity there with a we know they were taking these viruses. For sure. We know they were taking these viruses and amping them up if you will called gain function research, making them more lethal, more transmissible. And we saw that back in the spring, And as as every piece of evidence began to turn up, we were going back. We were trying to convince our Chinese counterparts to come clean to fess up to help us understand. We're trying to Save American lives. You remember what the spring was, like, last year. We're all trying to get her hands around this thing and we were trying to get the Chinese government. When we could see who could see that everything around that lab was closing up. They were disappearing doctors that were getting rid of journalists they were destroying viruses. Everything seems to point in the singular direction of this being a leak from that laboratory, So we called it what it was based on that data and science that we had at the time. And then, of course, we're accused of playing politics. Nothing could have been further from the truth. In fact, This is pretty clear Now. These journalists have all said, Yeah, it turned out. It was Trump and Pompeo. So we had we had to try and undermine it. That's just that's dangerous and

WSJ Piece Teaches How to Read the Truth in Chinese Propaganda
"With this fantastic piece in the Wall Street Journal showing you how to dig through propaganda. How the Communists How Communist Now the Chinese Communist Party, CCP, How the communist Soviet Union how they work and manipulating the media where there's always an element of truth in his story. You know what it make stuff up out of thin air. You may say, Dan why they're Communists. They do whatever they want. If you don't like it, they kill you. Yeah. But they can't kill everybody at the same time. I mean, seriously, they do have to have some people alive like that's the whole point of having a country. Right. So once in a while you got to feed him a nugget a truth. Little small sliver nugget of truth, and you just manipulate the story. So if you read the story upside down, and you learn to read these propaganda pieces upside down, you will get to the truth. Eventually, they gave a great example. You know, Chinese propaganda say, you know, brave Chinese Communist People's Liberation Army saves eight miners and mining accident Then you find out later the Chinese government caused the accident do faulty safety standards and 150 miners died.

The Similarity of Chinese Communist Propaganda and Our Lying Media
"And I'm reading this piece in The Wall Street Journal. And it's about Chinese Communist propaganda really applies to propaganda outfits throughout human history, Prov, the Soviet Union or whatever. And it was this fascinating piece by Perry Link called Beijing protests allegedly too much and it talks about how you have to learn to read. Communist propaganda from China and their media outlets. And when you learn to read a quote upside down, the stories make sense and I thought to myself, I'm sitting there. I'm always thinking of. You know what's a good, solid narrative for a show that ties things together today because we've got a lot of material to get to And I thought, Gosh, that said, Like Once we learn how to do what you know the citizens of China have had to do with their own media to read media reports upside down, We can finally start to get to the truth. Let me read you a quote from this Wall Street journal piece because it's very telling. And I want you to tell me something going to ask you up front. What is any different from are the Chinese propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party and state controlled media in China? What's different than our media here? Serious question After you. What's different. You have to employ the same tactic it to get to the truth to our lying media here. Hear from the piece called Beijing Protests allegedly too much quote. Many years ago. A distinguished Chinese writer Woo Zuzang explained to me that there is truth in Communist Party pronouncements, but you have to read them quote upside down. If a newspaper says the party has made great strides against corruption in Hannon And you know that corruptions recently been especially bad in and on. If you read about the heroic rescue of eight miners somewhere, you can guess that a mine collapse may have killed hundreds who aren't even mentioned. Learn to read the story upside down. Read upside down. There's a sense in which the official press never lies. It cannot lie. It has to tell you what the party wants you to believe. And if you can figure out the party's motive, which always exists. Then you have a sense of the

"chinese" Discussed on MarketFoolery
"Yeah i do because it's because it's the only it's the only country of substance that matters that has a different set of rules than everybody else. A german company american auditors can fully audit their books companies companies even in hong kong. Just mainland china. It's it's going to change and they will figure out a way you know so that way everybody gets to declare victory and this happens so is a reason why i mean ultimately i think it's self-defeating for china. I mean obviously one point two trillion dollars market cap here in the us but there are a lot of investors a lot of american investors a lot of investors around the world who say i don't invest in and i don't trust chinese companies. They're not wrong right. This helps their argument. Ultimately the argument has got to be a little bit more sunshine. And that's not something. That's easy for the for the chinese communist party to do but that's the way it's going to have to be and whether this goes through or not so two questions in two different directions first. Let's say just for the sake of argument that you're wrong let's say raisin raisin my wife goes as usual. Let's say you're wrong in this regard. Let's say this goes through and these chinese companies alibaba recently did a listing in hong kong the these companies and and The chinese government say. that's fine. we're not doing this. And we're taking ball going home and so therefore they are no longer listed on exchanges. This is a little in the weeds but like what what happened. You know if. I'm an investor and i own shares of by do or jd dot com or alibaba. And they're no longer listed a year from now. It's like well. They're no longer to be listed. What happens to my shares to do. I still own them do they. Do they get liquidated what happens then. It's a really good question and it's a bit of an open question. Wouldn't normally happen when a foreign from the. Us which has happened before and plenty of times one end up with is either shares on the home market. Which are tradable. Probably it would be in hong kong which almo- many brokers in the us have an agreement with hong kong stock exchange so they would become tradeable. They're the biggest issue for four. Four investors is not even liquidity. It's access right like will be. It will be harder to do we in several services in the molly of have have exposure to foreign companies that trade on foreign exchanges. And it's not the best experience but it's not something that you should panic about either. The the thing that people might wonder at there is no way that what would end up happening. Is that your sheriff. Would somehow be forfeit. You own those shares and the way international commerce whereas in the way the markets work is those companies. Those those shares are yours..

"It or like it or I think you'd enjoy this with simply beat the most wonderful thing, you could do this podcast. Thank you so much for spreading the word about the changing scripts podcast and a gig out and talking about our language learning story early on this time around because we lived in China before but early on this time in the first few months, I picked up on the few words, I could hear I noticed that people were repeating them a lot even just waited way there. I noticed the repetition was there, and I started to do that a ton. Whereas if I was in the US or anywhere else that were speaking English. And I said, yes, yes. Yes. It would seem like it'd be pushy. But here it just seems like. Repeat it hadn't. I was just like don't don't say it once it three times in see what happened. I did that here people be like, oh, they just continue the conversation. I'm like it worked. Every once they'd be like waiting. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah for sure day early. Yeah. To HANA in there. If I said good good good to someone. They'd be like at home. They what's wrong with you. Why is it? So good was happening. Why don't you stay great? What's wrong with your vocabulary? Reds level of using expression. I talk about coming into an out of languages. I don't know where I got that from, but you into China, you had finished English already at your disposal when you're learning Mandarin Chinese, and you're like looking for a word to say, something what language came out first. Yeah. I think in the beginning when the cost was English. Somebody would have if you wanted to speak. That's. Do after I do find a lot of similarities in Swedish Chinese that. Probably nothing. Nothing. Probably. Actually. Are some words that are almost saying? Something like Khan. It's. It's it's it has different meanings in Swedish of they sound very similar. Yeah. I think that's enough swimmers like afterwards lay. This the beginning. I've been breaking in Swedish if like using Swedish as a customer, so so. Awkward woman there when he has fake Swedish. Not something Chinese comes out because he's has the stronger which in recent years of that. So funny when you had to fill Chinese came. Brain is amazing amazing creature where you will flash card person at all when you refers learning Chinese vocabulary like the words Honsik characters things yet. I had this like you can in China, those nice flush card things that you can ride yourself. So I do some words in the beginning. When there were fewer runs in the accepted by than down unto them that way. Yeah. That's in the very beginning. When we had Warbirds coming at indiscipline. Insert course, I didn't do that anymore. But in the first course, yet, did you make a conscious decision to stop making them more. It's just kinda didn't why did you stop? I think in the first course, it was it was money to you could feel learn most of the words were probably could learn verse in the second third course also with hard work in the front, of course, it was possible to learn the birds and giving drilling under the stuff. I felt that the changing the first person the second course was also about in the first course, we had loaned the basics. We would learn everything very carefully. The second way would Marceau that's go so deep in specific things lower chapter on more words, and Elta fusing words that you were not may be comfortable using it. Are you didn't know that? Well, but they in the. I think the flow of language in general like how much we were hearing a rating and how many birds we had getting recent. So I think that's the time. I didn't anywhere do like it would have taken more time from yourself to basic individually like learn every bird just concentrated in learning. The state letting like larger learning. Maybe more sleepless little. It would like be doing time. Are you still learning Chinese now? Well, I have not been learning. I have been listening to a couple of poed casts during the holidays, we would Chinese TV. Serious ching. What show you just one? Do know this metro regarded now coming up. I I haven't watched any yet. But I've had some recommended to me I've been using to know Vicki.

"That would satisfy me the there's a lot of great carbs and flash cards out there. I think for beginners and beginners of language learning beginners of a language and also for children, but I couldn't find something more complex more intriguing more for intermediate level, gamers, anguish learners. So I just said about started making some games, and I've I've made a game for Mandarin Chinese, it's called Chinese champions. And I've made to. I've made to Chinese champion. So there's Chinese champions one and China's champions two, and it's intermediate level game. It's quite challenging and difficult to play. I mean, if you're a gamer, you might not think that bad, and I'm I'm really proud of the second one actually think Chinese champions two if your listeners are you have a chance, I think you should check it out on I really feel like Chinese champions two was has been my masterpiece. So far of all my games because it has photography from my travels around China. So yeah, the the photography is from is all my own photography through my travels in different provinces. So it's it's kind of chronicles my journey. And also the words to and I've included some stories that I wrote in Chinese with the game. So it's Chinese stories. You know, it goes. Leep and I'm really proud of it. So if if any gamers are listening, definitely check out Chinese champions off, and they're beautiful beautiful creatures or told you this up previously. I'm not a gamer. But when I when I got the win the set that you sent me, and I opened it. I was like oh my God. Like, the quality of the cards and the the like how beautiful and how structurally strong they are. And how many I'd like the different pieces of the game in the just the case. I mean, it you can tell how much time and effort you put into it. And then it was a labor of love. It was just phenomenal. Thank you so much. You know, I I made a big mistake. Because I meant the moment we got on the phone. I meant to say thank you so much for doing that review. I wanted to thank you in person. But we had some we have some connection difficulties right off the bat, and I forgot, but I showed your video to my family and some of my friends and. Everybody loved it. And they loved you. And they loved your bubbly presentation of and we just all of it was so great. So really, thank you, something that came out of a genuine respect to what you had created funny because I don't know if you listened or watch the interviews I did with Il who's from England who learned Tiny's in China actually outside and then in China, and he actually just he was in Shanghai for a year on an internship, and he just moved back to Nanjing and before he left I still had the card game. You sent me. And I was like this is like the most perfect thing ever because he's a massive gamer, and he's very much into science fiction. Yeah. He's reading science fiction in Chinese like that how how deep into the language he's gotten. And so when he was about to leave I was like, wait a minute. This is perfect. It's useless for me, and it needs to live in the world. And and he talking about all this stuff 'cause I gave it to him through my husband because he saw him just before he left. And apparently, he was super pleased. And I haven't checked in yet because they moved things are kind of a mess at first. But I'm definitely going to check in and see what he's done with it. See if I can coerce him to do video for you in that kind of thing. 'cause yeah. But yeah, I just wanted to that you know, it's made it into into hands that will use it. So. Yeah. Yeah. So awesome. Okay. So thank you so much. I really appreciate you doing this. You're welcome. Thank you for having coupon doing what you're doing. I wish you continuing success with your channel.

"Do you find that the things you read and listen to and and and right, and those kinds of things are more in Chinese than they are in English. No. I think if I totally honest, it's mostly I'm still kind of living in an English bubble to some extent. Because a lot of my news and social media is all English. And I can only imagine if I was if I was soaking up that much Chinese everyday where my Chinese being I think most of what's incoming is English improbably. Most of what's outgoing is English. I would have to say. And that's fair. I mean, it is the language that you can that you do the most in and culturally speaking, there is a difference between news English Newton Chinese and there's different viewpoints different kinds of things. Yeah. There are some people out there who when they come to China, they refuse to speak English. And if that works for them. That's great. I right. Yeah. It's right. They kind of they kind of up with that restriction on themselves. So, you know, for better or worse in you know, there's a million ways to Sunday, and some people may decide on only gonna watch Chinese TV only gonna watch Chinese cartoons. And they they they seriously. They put some kinds of restrictions on their on what kind of input language in have said that they can move faster. But for me, you know, it's still a lot of. And I want to improve my English. Actually, that's all my to do. So I actually studied English as well. In in what we do want to improve. Well, I noticed ever the years teaching English in China that might English is getting worse because language around not airy real. Yeah. What did you call language erosion? I love that time. I wish I had made it up. But it's actually I don't know where I picked it up. But somewhere along the line of either teaching or studying how to teach it came up, and I just went oh that that makes complete because if you're not using it, especially when you're you're in Asia, a lot of times, you're teaching lower level students, and you don't really use a lot of your language, and I found myself like watching and reading a lot of stuff that was much denser than I normally would because I just needed that kind of stretch linguistically, and I was just I stopped doing like fun things in English for well because I was just trying to kind of balance out my language. But but yeah, no. It's it's the thing. It's definitely a thing. And it happens in any language, not just your first language. But it's definitely a thing. You think because I was so fascinated by Chinese after a few years that sort of thinking now you've lost your fascination with English where did that go? As a young stir. I think I was so much more fascinated and had an imagination for English. So I I wanted to bring that back in keep developing, you know, especially as a teacher as a college too. And sometimes we have to do public, lectures, and speeches and open classes, and I felt like I still have the English of a twenty one year old or twenty year old. That's crazy. I'm I'm thirty one now, and I've been teaching at the college for many years than I my English has been stagnant. So one of the work on it. I totally understand why it's been a struggle to keep it. I think I've lost a lot especially in what used to now I think by living overseas. Also, I've kind of like, I think my language has become very dated to win. I let well exact little symphony US in graduate school. But that language isn't actually combinator used language either. Like, we are like the everyday language that people use I'm so so dated as far as like when I wreck the you enter basis like. Some of my when I was teaching at university in the US, and I'd say something, and my my nineteen year old American students would look at me like who said that any more. Apparently, I do. Teach that silly ten years ago. And I'm like, yeah. Let make sense about peer enjoying this conversation about the Chinese language and would like to participate if you're studying the Chinese language, or if you come from the Chinese language and of Lord languages, either perspective is greatly. Actually, both perspectives are greatly appreciated on this channel. Let's have a conversation. Let's take that sucker. And let's get it into this podcast, contact me. And let's at out the details on how to get you and your valuable language learning. Experience onto this podcast..
"But when I was graduating on getting ready to start teaching there, a friend suggested why don't you come to China? You can do the same thing of air. You know, you can teach over here for a couple years. There's no need for you to settle down right away. And I was thinking in a similar way I've never really gotten out before. And so I thought why don't that try that? And I I did right after graduation came to China Guay Lynn Guangxi province, and I've been here ever since relent. Join it at for listeners that aren't that familiar with Taina. Can you kind of describe where that is open for Guangxi is in the south Angolan is a very popular tourist hotspot? It's a maybe an hour and a half from a place called young Schule were a a lot of backpackers and hikers and travelers and tourists go to have that famous karst photography this. Nouns that are very finger like, and they they do the bamboo rafts down. The river is actually young show is on the back of the twenty dollar Chinese Bill. Or the twenty the twenty U N Bill, so you can see a picture of that area. It's very scenic. It's so wonderful place to go. I lived there for two years. The weather's gets pretty hot humid little bit unpredictable. But actually hope maybe in the future. I could move back there if I do settle down in China. I think that would be a great place to do it. And that was from twenty eleven to twenty thirteen I came in twenty eleven okay. Yeah. Where do you live in China? Now. Are you in right now, I live about two hours north of Guang Joe, okay? In Guangdong province kind of in the countryside. Boonies? Did you start learning Chinese in high school when you start first started being attractive to the then by learn Chinese for the first time in university? I took it for one year. I'll okay, okay. It was actually kind of it was kind of by chance that it came about. Because you know, I went to university, and I actually studied Arabic for. For year, and I really enjoyed it. And then something happened with the language requirement. They kind of messed me up, and they said, you basically have a choice you can redo the Arabic class again. You know, something with my credits was messed up this. You can do that again or you can choose a new language, and I said, well, I really loved Arabic, but I'm not going to sit through the same class for another year just to confirm my credit. So I chose Chinese at that point. So it was kind of a little bit by chance, although I was very interested in Chinese culture. I didn't expect I would be leaving the US. So I just wanted. I just chose anything. I wanted. Basically, I wasn't thinking I would ever go to China. I was kind of a false whatever they call it a false beginner of false starter. When I came to China, it was several years after I had taken that class. So I basically had to relearn the basics again got provide to ask you some questions about your first..
"Literally in that initial Yoshua. How I don't know. I don't know. So I'm kind of struggling with this. So in some ways, I feel like there's two time indicators here one is that I have time. And the other is that for awhile. And yet with those two time indicators I feel like there's no indication of future. So these are the kind of struggles that I'm having with being clear on how time is expressed in Chinese, and I wanted to get that specific example on tape because I think once it becomes clear once I can stay here and see those more I feel like it'll it'll be like a shining moment. And it'll be wonderful. And it'll feel really good that I hear that struggle after I don't have it anymore, and I go I did break pass that because there are so many stepping stones to learn in this language. There's so many parts of climbing this mountain that I do want to not just share the triumphs of those beautiful ninety five percents of the tests self, but I want to share the struggle. So I can see that I've overcome certain things as well. So let's see flash cards practice tests and time. Time issues. I think those are the the big things and where I am in the book. So I'm starting chapter twenty in two days. Do I want to give you a motivation level right now, it's probably five in some ways, I'm feeling determined. And in some ways, I feel very very defeated. I was hoping at this point in the process this close to h is K three that I would have more productive skills, which is extremely unrealistic. My main goal is reading that's what I have been practicing and moving towards for about a year. The fact that I thought in within the last two or three months of h k three which would have been timber Tober November those three months the fact that I thought I could start focusing on speaking more and being able to produce these words that I've only dealt with going from Chinese to English to meaning to circling ABC was ridiculous goal. And I need to put it down right now in order to absorb what I can to move forward. I can easily shift the goal to after December second I should in fact do that because trying to add another component to that. Even when I've already upped my studying from two hours to three plus hours a day just working on the materials for these frigging killer chapters from chapter ten of chapter twenty they're insane. And they're super hard. And they're nuanced vocabulary and grammar that I was not prepared for just to keep up with that. I had. To increase almost double the amount of time. I was spending. Now, I'm not going to the point where I feel like my brain falling out. But I definitely pushing my limits of what I can do in one given day. And I don't like cramming, which is why I'm doing three hours a day. Now as opposed to six hours a day a week before the test because I don't think that's productive at all. I do want to retain the information that I'm studying even if it is to be used in a slightly different way afterwards. So I need to put that goal down the goal of speaking even in a rough form before this test in less than less than a month is not going to happen. So it considerate down. I know a lot of people fight with me and cut a two out when I say, I am not worried about speaking just yet. However, I thought it would come slightly more naturally. Than it is especially with all the listening practice. I thought I would have more of a rhythm to my speaking. And you just heard an example of how I don't and to be fair when I'm reading an English I found choppy too. So there's some bit of a transfer there for my L one for my first language. I don't mind starting with reading. I it's something I've never done with a language before. And I have never learned a language before I've never stayed motivated long enough to get fluent enough. So that's what I'm doing differently. This time is focusing on the skills that I enjoyed the most and that is reading I do want it to bridge over into speaking. At some point, I have conjured up a few different circumstances where I need I want to use my speaking skills..

But honestly, I'd much rather you tell a few of your friends about this podcast, especially if you know, they share this similar interest. Thank you so much, and let's dive into the episode Lola. All right. Hey, welcome back to changing scripts today as home I God, November ninth. Let me tell you what the episodes like. And then I'll tell you all that you need to know about the wonderful mountain that is learning Mandarin Chinese. So I I'm going to tell you two pieces of exciting news as far as the podcast. Goes the Mogo into my language learning update. Then I want to read an article on what Chinese is so frigging hard to learn and then on the positive note, I want to share with you a recent video from Steve Kauffman that with pretty encouraging and hit exactly at the time. I needed it Motivation-wise, then the sound, but I want to leave you with today is actually a rebroadcast from a local poet in China. So let's get started with all of that showy, so pod bean, I love pod bean. They're actually my hosting service. So incredibly biased on this. I have all three of my podcasts on pod bean. The you may have heard of Lipson you may have heard of blueberry, actually, probably only heard if those if you're a podcast or but pod being not only.
"So if you join their services, we both end up very, very happy campers, and you never have to ask your friends or family to see your mail again. It's truly a beautiful thing. Let's talk about some community. Holy cow. Tanya Crossman is who I interviewed this week for the podcast is started learning Mandarin Chinese when she was eleven years old e- Levin to say that she has a Chinese part to her personality and linguistic side is an understatement. And I'm so flattered that she was was so tolerant of my low level of language language usage and language examples, and I'm really excited people that are that functional and that knowledgeable about Mandarin Chinese or having these conversations with me, it is definitely a motivator for me to keep going with the language. So that I can have firmer stronger examples. I know what I want to ask. But I don't have the language examples yet in a way that makes sense from Mandarin to to give to people, and I hope that gets better with time and the interim, I'm pulling on my ex language teacher self and the differences that I saw in my Chinese students who were learning or using English. And I'm pulling on that it to questioning how we can bridge over to from English to Mandarin Chinese or from any language into Mandarin Chinese, especially western languages, Latin based script languages into such an intricate writing system. How can we do that in a better way in a less daunting way? I suppose that's one of the questions that podcast revolves around. I have so many questions. It's ridiculous. Speaking of questions at the end of each interview, as you know, I ask the guests. What things I should ask future guests, either the native Mandarin Chinese speakers who learned other languages or people learning or using Mandarin Chinese adult? And she added a super interesting question. How did you learn emotional language, like how did you learn to communicate your feelings? Thank you Tanya. What a wonderful question. I think skirt around emotions in any language. I don't think I actually talk about them all out. So that's so interesting. So I don't think I ever would have come up with this question on my own, and it shows her emotional maturity, which is far above. That she not only had this thought. But had this thought when she was trying to communicate in Chinese when she was trying to really her feelings emend or in Chinese what a wonderful question. I cannot wait to ask that question to the next folks that I'm going to interview I'm Mona bit of interview hiatus with the podcast because I have so many backlog of interviews not because we're so intensely popular. But because I'm only doing eight interviews per season. And then the shorter update to slash information clips as well. I like eight interviews per season. It feels very very manageable to me, I considering the interviews. They're about ninety minutes long. It takes me while to process every Maeve said and to create the show notes and to. And just to have those conversation is are just are wonderful. Now Tanya also is on my Instagram now, and I had a language learning moment this week when I know Guan which is too close to close. I guess if you were directly translated it'd be to close the air conditioner is sort of shut off the air conditioner Guan is literally on my air conditioner remote. And it looks like a little guy with like ears. I guess if you know Mandarin Chinese or you're beginning to learn it's like tin like day with yours. So that's too close. But Guan new like there's a question that keeps coming up in each k three. And again, my tones are going to be crap. But it's like Guan Yu nude a cookie Tadao Shama. Okay. So the Golan new means about and it's usually about a person about him. What can you know about her? What can you know about the situation? What can you now? And sometimes about the dog or cat. What can you know? No. And I was like, wait a minute. What is about let me just read my Instagram thing. It's doing my head. I typed in I posted its doing my head in that Guan can mean close like to close a door. But when it's Kwong knew it means about which in my western brain feels like an opening up for information to come in. Or maybe it's a closing of an unknowing..

Welcome back to changing scripts, and this is my worst nightmare. It is underway. Twenty-seventh? Why is it my worst nightmare because it is about to hit November and November is one month before December. Which is when my h K test is so I am on overdrive trying to figure out how to be the most efficient language. They're new that I can. But that's only one part of what? I'm going to share in this episode. So let me give you a quick rundown of what you're going to be listening to. So we've got some language learning news. So I wanna give a quick shout out to the folks the polyglot conference on October twenty sixth through twenty eight it will probably be too late. Once you get this episode to follow them live. But it looks like they're pudding a strong social media and online presence about what happens at the conference, and you can go into the show notes and look at their tweets as well as follow their YouTube videos of the presentations that went on and one of my favorite YouTube language, learners affiliate Vert is presenting the com-. I'm going to go into my language learning. I'm also going to give you an audio example. That's also sound oriented. I'm realizing by the audio examples, I'm giving you. I'm. Peta showing him a quickie side. Oh, well, then we'll go over to community and see what happened over on Instagram. And in the interviews that I did for the podcast this week. And we're also going to throw in some information on websites in Chinese and what I learned about them this week because what language they use on Chinese websites. Mandarin Chinese, Ed? So it's very very much so connected to the things I'm trying to read. Finally, we're going to talk about a star is born. How does that connect to Mandarin Chinese stick around and find out, and that's actually all we have for this episode? So your takeaways are going to be social media, and we've got a book for you, not specifically about the Chinese language, but it definitely includes some things about it as well as a lot about Chinese culture, especially in the tech sector. Let's get started after listening to my flash card rambling last week. I realized how insanely boring it is here about somebody organizes their flash cards. I just I listened to that Meg cringed. And I didn't know how to replace it with something smaller shorter, more audio sexy..
"Whereas the first time I saw them. It was just it was it was Shelly interviewing Jeremy and the audience could ask questions, so it was a very different format this time, and I don't wanna go. Too far into it. But I did write down some things that Shelly said an you you you're booty I asked her if she would be on the podcast. So we're going to try to get her into season three as well. Watch out. If you meet me in person, folks because I will ask you if you wanna be on this project. It's what I do. It's what I do. So if you things that she said, she said that Chinese and I'm going to have to take her word for it. And I feel like I can trust her opinion of Chinese. She lives in Singapore. Just like Jeremy does well Jeremy's from Singapore. Shelly lives in Singapore. She spends a lot of her time in Singapore. Some of her time in China. I do not remember her her origin country. But I think it's somewhere in North America. But she has spent I think twenty five years in Singapore. Think she said, and she translates Chinese into English and she said somebody asked what? What do you do with the mpc unity of the Chinese language when translated into English, I keep hearing this over and over that there's a lot of built in ambiguity with the language and sometimes. Sometimes when it's translated it's it's messed up, and it's cluttered and all that kind of stuff. And she said she used the phrase in abundance of white space is what she said ruins it. Sometimes when translators try to over explain or try to over describe or try to over specify. Or just. Word out, the big, you ity, basically, that's my phrase not hers, but the abundance of white spaces is her phrase, and I think that's very interesting that is a cultural linguistic or thought process perhaps of having the flexibility to have that white space in the language and in the culture and in the thought and being comfortable with that. And yet when it's translated sometimes that cultural aspect can get written out literally could be overdone. It sounds like one more thing that she said is that Chinese is written for the I an English is written for the ear. There's a particular reason why I find that one interesting in the teaching English as a second language field. One of the things that joy Reid mentioned a scholar of in that area mentioned about Chinese language learners with English is she? Calls them. I Lerner there were some people that she said were ear learners where they learned languages by listening to the sound was very important. She called others islanders were they they learned English by looking at it by reading it that kind of thing, and it's funny because I'm still trying to I'm still trying to mend to I'm still trying to put these two ideas together because I don't they are coming at the language from different perspective. One is talking about how people enjoy language and another is talking about how folks from certain first language come into another language, and I'm still trying to see if these two ideas fit together, I think I did a YouTube video back when I was doing those on this idea I can't help. But think that these two ideas can coexist in some way, and that actually not just coexist. I can't help. But think that because? Because Chinese is written for the I that that's why these Chinese students were learning Chinese visually and not spending as much time. Speaking and listening in that kind of thing especially in these day this day and age when so much content is available. Yes. Even behind the fireball so much content available in English I and yet it's still sort of a downside of learning English over here. Not in every context. And it definitely is better. But it still a very reading heavy society. And I think those two definitely play off each other for which your feedback your questions, your impressions of either this type of episode or the interview episode or anything at all or if you have questions about China Shanghai learning methods the language itself. Hit me up on my socials. They're all in the show notes or you can go.
"Frontal? Tuck gusting eighty so can you hear the difference between Chinese shine? Sorry. China Puna by Shankar. The difference. I can give even sometimes even in Sean, I can say to my it's. Oh, yeah. That's good. But sometimes isn't something else. The difference between the two I still can't hear the difference. But my comprehension of still here and there in here. Just a few words. Good question. Me. Sometimes this probably isn't even thing. But I sort has got confused between Korea now probably done since to somebody. That sounds like to me sons from from nice. I don't know if any sense novels because I read Really something. confused, but. These. I think if feels quite Hauch. Says it choppier I think it is. I always confuse ever hard time. I've lived into pampa haven't lived in Korea. And I constantly I often will hear something and think it's Japanese or Korean. It's the other. I think it's kind of a similar choppiness to the two languages. I wonder. In the summer as many companies sums, which more. Malysz Lewis few. Some offer to meet on companies on then Shanghainese sometime shouldn't even put them. I don't have any sort of. Which was the softest among all phone companies sort of things onto me. Could be because I grew up in more familiar with companies of Chinese living k will. So that's that's why newest Chinese auction companies then not under. So yeah, it could be entirely subjective. Based on. Very very accurate. Interesting listeners, if you if you have your own description of your description of the differences between these languages, please social media and put those interesting I betray ass-. What other folks think about that? Only recently. I was viewing funny because in newspapers you were talking about reading foreign newspapers in Chinese and having different perspectives. And I watch you two generals about people flogging about China in China. But there Arner that got those foreign is, and they can see things that sometimes when you grow up in a place. You don't see and these two gentlemen's depends a. The other guy. Can't remember the name radio this horrible AD? China's there they're their YouTube channel name, and they went through China that too. They went through California. And they went to different cities. They went to check out the China towns, and they made it very very clearly like okay in San Francisco. This is mostly Cantonese population in Los Angeles, mostly mainland China population in I've lived in both places, and I didn't realize have different those those two cities in their Chinese populations. Were I just went to Chinatown was like I can buy this nece here. Awesome. And you know, those guiding have that that ability to make out those those language differences when it was there. So it was really like oh my God. I lived in places. And I don't know this guy's just travel in talk to people in you know, in in Mandarin. And they they're able to pick up on those. Those differences. So. Any? So those having that firm perspective sometimes can make it easier to understand which is. Complexity oath trying. Food. That places along which is as well, which is so hard to describe people scale of time. I moved on. I moved to Beijing came to China when I went down to China show, which is central South China. Got you locked up by talks joins because of the night northern accent. They weren't impressed that you're speaking the language they. The beijing. I wasn't even have Beijing. I didn't even think fighting as possible to make oven. And, you know, save on simple phrases. But how picked up the now account avid doesn't upset. So, you know, it's it's it's nice to know that you haven't. Feels like some that does that is. Oh my God. Was just some this child. Enjoying this conversation about the Chinese language and with like to participate, if you're studying the Chinese language, or if you come from the tiny language of Lourdes languages, either perspective is greatly. Actually, both perspectives are greatly appreciated on this channel. Let's have a conversation. Let's take that sucker. And let's get it into this podcast.

"The first time you were reading I was reading at the New York Times because bilingual. And you can you can split painting of that. And you can get the English on the Chinese next week. Which is incredibly useful because I trying to meet at I in Chinese then radian, let's go back and ups when Alaska role. So that was incredibly useful also to use the champions bowel, which I found ring his full, and I was. Reading things that maybe say Chinese news time and some of these things Machado talks living in. Two hours at a time. Oh my gosh. I beat team of the because I read the transcript before I listen to the listening itself, and those are fifteen inch in ages to twenty tasks and ages K three that takes me about an hour. And I my brain dead after that, not not a lot of language. So how to our straits without stopping listening route in? Was also different for landing material fun because well. When you're in been signed, you mentioned that you read. You mentioned you're reading the language in texts that weren't necessarily from mainland China. Oh, can you? Tell us some of the places Uber. Reading in the language. Came across an article of the good long optical on the New York Times, which was at America returning Hong Kong for the times in psalm Dovan after twenty years and looking up an old acquaintance. I think was an office who a time they couldn't speak to the couldn't communicate. But it became invested friends in the. Used to go to throw things on being talked about his time. Wandering around Hong Kong looking for this person and talk about the changes of occurred. And while still the same up to twenty years, it was translated Chinese, but I think what faucet me was a lot of natural language, and that which I was fascinated to find out translations wouldn't necessarily have learned since. But also, they think biddings explanations cultural notes explain things as well. So that was really fresh also around the trying of Donald Trump being elected president on Iran. Herat's fan of article news articles about the days of his presidency. The. Virtual things. He was managing to upset. People international. Young coach at the time, and it was interesting to dock from a Chinese. Because. That kind of cultural explanations involved out and get into those necessarily come across the useful. And these are all accessible online behind payable or are they free? I believe new times, for example. I think certain number of articles on. Oh. Yes. True. Things like baby. Chinese news free. Yeah. Those some of the mainland's nice. Let's pick up on the time line against. So you have the intensive class. And then you've been self studying since that. Your father showed spelled T university went out some free lessons joint international students can by the Chinese English faculty. Classes I got. It was only two levels of local get at all. Gather next level. I did list of from it. But I the stuff was old ground on a lot of it was chomping in a group. I golden fim that text crews extremely rigorously structure to the same in every chapter which is often the case, and we would sit that chomping laving folk obelisk first than around twenty students all read out the dialogue. Just didn't suit me, and it was the end of day anyway, and it was a two and a half out sessions the whole shape. Veges was getting drips of useful. Especially information of refreshes of it just wasn't enough. Vestment? So yes, so p pretty much on my own and son. What have you been using self study during time for my character on woods? I actually use scripture in unconventionally what I turn off the right things. Alrea system. Kayla. I still do sometimes. And I think it's because greatest building example sentences which became quite familiar with. I was doing the writing and I go back to that quite regularly and clear my Boven often I use. The champions bow. I've always been used Chinese poets probably for the last city thing, and it's gravies of do Chinese used to practice reading different levels. Some different stuff on night Electric's unbel-, the high-speed trading on sements become from the traveling on Chinese. They have those have it from what yo I found that quite fascinating again, actually spoke in very formal Chinese dangle Chinese. It was quite difficult to follow. So things like that little gems from your heavy delays in China, and while open my eyes. So this is a great resource, which is news. Well..
"As recently plaque antics narrate released an is on the same redes- puritan characters. Now, I can finally read them electric. I've started really quick quick debating those books because in Abbas. Only back check on this again because I love adding does what again, you can actually buy the whole soon couldn't read it. He can read them in. Compress money Karak that pops addiction leaving you can use text to speech as well. So reads the stories I just thought my. This you're listening then actual. On do that with the rita's dot C music. Rita's also the champion's article. That you can buy toxic those and the Rita very good as well. So thoughts being. I'm collecting the resources I wanna use after December when I'm done with just. Because I notice last year when I was starting to try to read is that a lot of the lower level materials started at three there was very little content per km went into our which is definitely where I was. And so I was like, okay, I'm going to do just casing three. And I'm gonna pick my next material. I'll have all this beginner stuff, which really isn't beginner stuff. But yeah. So that's amazing. Yeah. I don't wanna see the money. I wanna see that one. Putting the extent that I was giving up because it just I it's hot enough plowing through the reading coming with about without a destruction. Which is like a voice whispered in. And like you I like the look at the characters. I like what they with their mind kind of move around a little bit. They have some fun. They like dance do different. Anyway, they're they're they're fun. And so I don't wanna break from that. If I'm on a rule with words, I know what I'm reading. I don't wanna break from that. And go back to the script. I know very, well that's very boring. If you do extensively can try to liberty finding something for fluency and opinions just wreck salt from seem. I don't think it about if you're action going to trying to. Most of the still great. Yeah. Like scanning would be definitely hard to. I'm not at that level where I can scan yet. I'm really have to sit down and read a sentence to know it, but I'm not in that would be. Yeah. Very distracting equivalent in English. Putting Chinese characters. Was there was the gentleman that I there was a Ted talk any in this whole project where he made an enter basically pinions interlinks between the bridges people into Chinese from English rate, or from a romance language that uses script, and so he actually created one using Chinese characters to bridge Chinese speakers into other languages, and it's really cool video and I keep meeting follow up with this project to see if it works. He said that you can actually use it with people from not just from Chinese, but you can actually use that sound system to bridge a lot of people over into other languages, not just east English or Chinese to romance languages. But I haven't followed up with person. But that's. Similar? Yeah. But apparently right now because coming from going from English to Chinese we have Pinon as the intermediary step, but going from Chinese to English, even though they're familiar with Pinon issues, very differently English. Like pinions pinions, you know, of of Chinese entities, very Salah. It's very short hearts to it in English comes largely from French, which has those crazy long misspell things that you don't say. Yeah. So they're like looking at the earliest going. I don't know. So they're pantley. There isn't any real intermediary step. I don't know. I don't know. On the books and China the textbooks and China English of the PA and thanks. Thanks. So of all the students that they. Acquaint? Well, actually, they went back to the money. Teaches waned on us. Generally. We don't have it. Flutie's? When I was teaching fulltime. I got a habit of using it. But if you put it in front of me now, I probably struggle with a few of them. But I found that my Japanese students may Chinese students like really clung to because they do have a phonetic. And you standing of this means this looks like it's just it's. Yeah. Whereas, yeah, I can't imagine English-speakers cleaning opinion is kind of that. But it doesn't have the town. Yeah. -pinion drives me crazy. Yeah. Nothing people opinion thinking these mentally for forests. And it wasn't. It was advantage. Uncle so..
"Well, okay. So two thousand five you're listening to the audio. And you're reading the textbook where you focusing on writing the characters that I note, I took a few lessons from Machida on she going meet stop writing journal on suck. It right basic. So I started at right things never really been focused because it's a very different skill. We can try. And you can read well when could while without having to write the characters and you need to timeline. It's also time. And now with the pinion input. Because I thought it was going to put a little bit on writing because reading writing the two areas very interested in. But once I learned how to type using the pinion, I just kinda okay, never mind. I just don't I don't see myself handwriting anything in the future. But I do hope that I can get enough Okabe there'd be on social media and communicate with people the Email in those kinds of things, which I can do with opinion. But so easily. What was like to kind of plateau with my character? When reading. I find that very difficult to crummy more characters. So one thing I thought was to stop anything to write. Because while I was finding I couldn't differentiate between so many does. So by living to rights. I started. Dialogue jump. But then I go to sit and point for few guys. What I was practicing writing day thoughts on this is soul time consuming und- by van smartphones. Ole stop to have the pinion it's and even Chinese people were saying to me, we are even forgetting. Other comics card because we don't need to Welsh. And yesterday that there used to be a TV show on in China where they used to have like a game show where they would say the the word and people had to train people to like write it, and they were going to testing do you remember how to write this this word, and I don't he's going to the information later, but have you ever heard of the show? Yeah. I was like only of thing. I can I remember we pause and try to. Do you feel like that? That would be necessary at some stage of learning the language there would need to be an emphasis on writing for a little bit to get past that the recognition part of sort of familiar scuffled into got post up for what reason. I know so many people who are very good with com-. Right, right. Also, it I think it's necessary which is for me. Semi with triumphant fear enjoying this conversation about the Chinese language and with like to participate, if you're studying the Chinese language, or if you come from the Chinese-language of Lord languages, either perspective is greatly. Actually, both perspectives are greatly appreciated on this channel. Let's have a conversation. Let's take that sucker. And let's get it into this podcast.

"Have gone off into that world that was just starting in those paper pages, and then kind of continued with whatever my brain was doing with it. I would see someone of school library. I wanna read is. Well, but after wait for them to check it back dissipation once he did get it and make sure that the reader and also certain series of stories, you know. Some of the freedom. Just to download them ever. You wanted them. You might don't around between and. Awful things serious. And not having the physical books around. Like, I have tons of stuff that I have to I have to create reminders for things that I have saved digitally that I want to go remember read, wait a minute. What? Yeah. It is. It is it is. It's a bit of what we don't have to consider it because we're not actually going to come back right now. But as different people, but something I think about like looking at when I was teaching freshman looking at them and going what would I be like having grown up with the stuff that you had acceptable. Experience. It does it does. Let's switch over into. So when did you start learning Chinese for the first time the first time, I've looked at wool miss June. My first trip to Hong Kong, which was two thousand free. I just found over suddenly in this place where the writing system was completely different. And I just could not have fallen in love with writing system and just been so fascinated by its I felt for stock irritated. I couldn't Siamese and things and what could possibly mean what I'm guessing. So. Voted which is actually a little cartoons of the characters. And I basically read the first one when the second one to series and the only covet the most basic. Then I went to the UK on a few years ninety five to us. When she ball to tax. Teach yourself Chinese book of the nation. It was period over about fumes. I slowly got them realized I really want to stall. So we in two thousand three in Hong Kong the book that you're using assuming that was in Cantonese. Traditional is traditional as opposed to this fight ones mainland. It was from the Straits Times which is. Okay. And so they used additional because as well. And it was actually. Co two newspaper everyday. Two people living. And cold phone the Chinese characters three series. And yet that's kind of all come in. Because it was colorful and funny, and it was quite an easy way. To just look at the to be honest. A lot of meanings derivation made up. I think statement puts they helped to you to to To a a number number of of them. them. And after that once I started getting into actual colloquial Chinese textbook, which was my which I actually read a good book. I'm driving long distances to work as well. I'm started listening to date becomes the dialogues on. England or. England about point of no crime to come and live and China's just because I found. Such a different on, which I think thing because studied French and German at school, but Chinese was just a whole new world, very different one, which I think that's just call interesting, French and German. Did you get to a level that you would consider fluent fluid? I I'm all which shows my age because that was the X arm before the current. So I studied them up to sixteen from right? Like SAM's sixteen. I didn't carry on with them to eighteen because I focused into science math. Switch school today with as well, and you wouldn't allow to mix these things. So regrettably go because I'm really enjoyed. But I I've been studying French for five years German for three years on the time. I took the exams, but I felt much much more confident German the knighted friends, did you feel with Chinese like you did with German with a different kind of north of a very similar way was about. So I find German very systematically logical China, not Chinese so has its own strong logic as Waller sleek. And I thought saying which I've never been French felt like friends was which will English more free phone messy. Soda found off..

"To this chinese food i like that well i mean i i know jewish immigrants also took an early like establishments and partly it's been attributed to the fact that there's a lot of chicken and celery and carrots and even chicken soups and both cuisines but there's also this argument proximity like the chinatowns were near the cheap rentals for new eastern european emigrants and also i think jewish people fall welcome at these establishments it was exotic but there wasn't a big cross on the wall to let them know they weren't wanted or plus they're there isn't a lot of mixing of dairy and meat and so the foods considered safe trade i read that african americans were also early adopters a no later duke ellington loved overeating of places that serve pigeon in chinatown and so they were slowly building this clientele but i think what's most fascinating is how this chinese community found a loophole in the exclusion act and that's where it really fueled industry so basically in 1915 there was a court case that allowed special immigration privileges to our nor is and business owners and it was opened to restaurant owners but there were these weird restrictions like it had to be highgrade restaurant mike that's what it was actually called and you are to actually manage the restaurant for a full calendar year and also because immigration officers assumed that all foreigners were liars you had to have two white character witnesses to establish credibility it's horrible yeah ever the people got super clever so because opening a restaurant was a major investment they pooled all their money to start up partnerships so to meet that pesky highgrade restaurant nonsense they started calling their places chop suey palaces and then they rotated jobs monks themselves so different people got to be the manager and bring their relatives over they basically maxed out each restaurant to bring people over and then when they had enough money they launch a new restaurant in the same model and then they do it all over again and this is from heather lee at the scholar strategy network but between nineteen 10 in nineteen twenty the number of chinese restaurants in new york city alone quadruple.
