"All right, everyone, and welcome to another episode of the dance English podcast. Where we try and make English fun. Thank you for finding this podcast today. So today's episode. Is something I think you're going to find quite interesting? It's also something that's very important because a lot of language learners actually get this wrong quite a lot. And of course, we don't want to get things wrong. We want to get them right. So listening to this podcast well, that should help you do that. And today we're going to be talking all about intensifiers. Now I know you probably listening to this thinking. What is an intensifier? And it's a pretty valid question. A lot of native speakers probably don't know what an intensifier is. If I said to my friends back in England, what's an intensifier, they probably won't be able to answer. And that's because this is an English teacher word. It's the kind of word that English teachers use to talk about the English language, but you're probably not going to hear it in daily conversation. Anyway, when I say intensifier, what I actually mean are words like so, very and two. There are other ones, but these are the most common ones. And these are the ones that cause the most trouble for people learning English, right? They all actually do kind of a similar thing. We put them with an adjective or an adverb such as much and many from last week's episode. To kind of intensify the meaning of that adjective or adverb, like make it stronger. Now the reason I want to talk about this today is because although these words are pretty simple, they are a little tricky to understand and a lot of language learners either use them way too much or they use them in the wrong way. And it can end up sounding a bit strange. And of course, we're not trying to sound strange when we're speaking English. We're trying to sound fluent. So we want to try and avoid these common mistakes. One of the biggest mistakes you'll find is.

"Mike Gallagher. Mike, I don't see why everybody's having such a hard time thinking Trump can't win or could win. He will win for one reason. Based on his job as president before and Joe Biden's job as president now, that's enough to make people say, hey, we need Trump back. What you need to do, tell us the companies that refuse to support X. We need to know who they are so we don't have to buy their products. Thanks a lot. Good day. Yeah, Mike, I think there's something more here than just a land dispute. I don't even think it's that. I think all this is about race. It's about hating white people and hating Western culture. I think if the Jewish people were people of color and the Palestinians were white, I think that these people that you see protesting would be siding with Israel. This is a great point that that caller raises. Have you noticed how the officials in all these communities are defending the anti-Semites? Have you noticed how many of them in these communities like Oakland are siding with the people who hate the Jews? Can you imagine siding with a bunch of bigots who hated black people or Muslims?

Did Disney just learn a lesson about the phrase go woke and go broke? The House of Mouse putting out a financial statement that seems to acknowledge that it's controversial political and social agenda is costing the company and shareholders. The document says we face risks relating to misalignment with public and consumer tastes and preferences for entertainment, travel and consumer products. But Disney isn't the only company that's facing a woke reckoning in the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike. Doggone, I'm so disappointed, I thought we had a big donor to let me take them to dinner for our Angel Tree campaign. I mean, poor Tracy was on the phone for nearly an hour with this lady in Ohio. Obviously, they become bosom buddies. I mean, I tell you what, I don't know. I don't know what in the world. Poor lady. I mean, she was trying to make a donation and the credit card didn't go through. And of course, that's how you make the donation to our Angel Tree campaign. We're like right now, we're seventy four hundred dollars away from hitting our halfway point in our big campaign to deliver Christmas presents to the sons and daughters of people who are in prison. It's the Angel Tree campaign. This is a big Christmas tradition here at The Mike Gallagher Show. And I had it in my head. I want us to hit two thousand today. Right. So I thought if we could hit two thousand today, we'll be halfway there before even December starts. Our goal is four thousand kids, one hundred thousand dollars to raise to deliver Christmas gifts to four thousand children. They're going to get Bibles. They're going to get a message that's personalized from their mom or dad or maybe their mom and dad in prison. A lot of these kids have both parents incarcerated. And the prison fellowship ministry is just a beautiful, beautiful thing. And we thought I came up with a goofy idea. I said, you know what? If you could at that time, we were like eighty five, eighty four hundred dollars short or eighty five hundred dollars short. I said, if you donate eighty five hundred dollars today, I'll fly to you and take you out to dinner. And there was a nice lady, I think her name was Deb from Ohio, and she's on the car and she's calling her husband and all of that. Well, the credit card doesn't work. And sometimes that happens. Sometimes it's a fraud thing. Maybe Deb can work it out, but it doesn't look like that donation came through. So we are right now two hundred and ninety six children away from hitting the halfway port. My personal goal of two thousand kids were only two hundred and ninety six kids away. That's seventy four hundred bucks. So since the lady with the credit card didn't come wasn't able to come through, I'm counting on you. This is Christmas time around here. We get excited. You know what you do when you're surrounded by evil? You do good. You do God's work. This is a special blessing that these children will get. And it's an amazing, amazing opportunity for you to spread God's love and God's word. We're called to do this. You understand, it's not just the Christmas presents these kids get, but they get the gospel. And a lot of these kids turn their lives over to the Lord and they don't go down the same path as their mom or dad. You're worried about crime in America? We all are, right? Well, how about spreading God's love to the children of incarcerated parents for a gift of one hundred and twenty five dollars? You'll bless five children of these prisoners with personalized Christmas presents and a note from their incarcerated parent. Every angel tree family gets access to a free, easy to read copy of the Bible in English or Spanish. Now, there's still time to make Christmas special. And again, if I can get we're right now at seven hundred and four children, right? So we're two hundred and ninety six children away. Come on. I know I've got two hundred and ninety six people who will donate twenty five dollars. That's all I'm asking. If you go to Mike online dot com and click on the angel tree banner at the top of the page right now. I got I got grief from Les in Sacramento who said, you've got to stop promising to sing. You're hurting donations. No, I think the singing works. Let the haters hate. If you get me to two thousand in the next twenty five minutes, I'm going to sing another upbeat rendition of Joy to the World and put you in the Christmas spirit like nobody else can. So please go to Mike online dot com. We need two hundred and ninety six Mike Gallagher show listeners to donate twenty five dollars. That's it. Now, obviously, if you can if you can donate more, we'll get there. We'll get there faster. But if we hit two thousand in the next 20 minutes, I'm going to sing Joy to the World, whether Les in Sacramento likes it or not. I'm going to belt it out. And I know I'm not as good as I think I am, but I'm going to sing it. Please go to Mike online dot com, click on that angel tree banner at the top of the page and you'll see the counter. You're going to see where we are right now. We're at seven hundred and four kids. If we can get to two thousand and then I know it's a lot. I'm asking for a couple. How many is that? A hundred people donating fifty bucks. Is that right? Is that my math right on that? Huh? What'd you say? I mean, wait a minute. We got line two, maybe a big donation. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Should I take this on air? Jeff and Chico, California. Jeff, are you are you real or are you are you a troll? I listen to I listen to you every day and I get pretty disgusted with you sometimes. And I think you blocked me. But I am right. Why do you get disgusted with me? Why would give me an example of what causes disgust? Well, I want to see you out there carrying the torch, which you do on air. And I love you and we love you for that. But I don't know if you'd really I get the feeling sometimes, Mike, that you really wouldn't back it up if we needed you out there like the civil rights movement. I'm 50. I was born in 58. Excuse me. But I admire these people that went out there and did that. But it is so twisted and warped now. I mean, it's I just can't describe. But I'm I'm losing you here. What are you what do you get upset with me about what I wouldn't carry a torch? I don't think I don't think you would have been one of the guys out there just and I could be wrong. But you have a great platform and a lot of guys. I work with a bunch of guys. Thirty five years. A lot of talkers. And I'm saying I don't think you would be out there. I don't think you would be out. What does that mean out there? Where I'm putting myself out there every single day. What do you want me to do? No, you are. You are. Should I cut my wrist here? You want me to bleed on air? What would you like me to do that I'm not doing? What can I do, Jeff, to make you? And see, I don't know why. And Eric told me to take you because you were going to make a big donation. I mean, I want to. I do. But I think it's dropped down a little bit. And then that poor lady, it fell through. But I guarantee you, I don't know if you're willing to fly out here or not, because if we went to dinner, I don't know that you'd have a good dinner with me because I am a tough kid. I don't understand what your beef is with me. I'm trying to understand what you're upset about. Because a lot of times when I'm sitting here listening to what you're saying, I agree so much. But then I listen to some of these other people who you give a, you know, a microphone or their opinion to. And I go, my God. Right, like you. I like to give platforms and voice. I like people to have a voice. It's a caller-driven show. Well, Jeff, I'm not sure I'm understanding any of it. I appreciate very much your call. Hey, Eric Hanson, can you come over here? We've got Eric Hanson, who's been screening the calls, was very excited about Jeff in Chico, California.

Fresh update on "english" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts

"Hello, everybody. I'm Dennis Prager. I actually am not happy to bring you the following report from The Wall Street Journal, because I wrestle with an issue when I speak to you. How much lousy news can I bring to your attention? It is. It's the one thing I don't wrestle with anything in terms of, well, is what I'm about to say going to benefit me or just get more anger at me from the left, for example, or on occasion from people on the right? That I don't wrestle with. I pursue truth to the best of my ability and let the chips fall where they may, but I do wrestle with the question of your getting down. And I have a theory on that that I'd like to say before I read you the story. If you allow yourself to get depressed because of the current situation, then the bad guys win. I am as angered and saddened by so many of the things that are happening as anyone is. But I don't allow it to depress me because, among other reasons, A, I owe it to everybody in my life to be a pleasant companion. And depressed people are not pleasant companions. Number two, it gives the bad people a victory. If they can depress us, they win. So I'm going to read you this piece and I ask you to not get depressed. If you get angry, that's good. That's fine. Even better if you figure out a way to fight. So this is a sign of our times that in Evanston, Illinois, among other places, they are now in K-12 having, on occasion in some schools, separate classes for black students. As I have said for quite some time now, the only people who are in favor of all black dormitories and all black graduation exercises are the Ku Klux Klan and the left. The only systemic racism in the country comes from the left. But you don't hear that except from people like me. So here is the article in the Wall Street Journal. School leaders in Evanston, Illinois, just north of Chicago, have been battling a sizable academic achievement gap between black, Latino, and white students for decades. So a few years ago, the school district decided to try something new at the high school classrooms voluntarily separated by race. Nearly 200 black and Latino students at Evanston Township High School signed up this year for math classes and a writing seminar intended for students of the same race, taught by a teacher of color. These optional so-called affinity classes. Affinity classes, I love that. You're black and I'm black, therefore we have instant affinity. Really? You don't have instant affinity based on values? You have it based on race? Why isn't that the purest form of racism that exists? Why is it not? I'd like somebody to call in and explain why that is not pure racism. Racial affinity. These optional so-called affinity classes are designed to address the achievement gap by making students feel more comfortable in class, district leaders have said, particularly in advanced placement courses that historically have enrolled few black and Latino students. So let me understand. Latino students. So that means a student of Mexican heritage, Latino comes from Latin America. So I want to understand something. You're telling me that a student whose parents came from Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina, even Brazil, which is Portuguese speaking, not Spanish speaking. They have more affinity than the kid whose parents came from one of those countries and a kid whose parents came from Chicago. So that's what I'm supposed to believe. But Mexico and Ecuador and Brazil and Argentina don't have that much in common, whereas if you both grew up rooting for the Cubs or White Sox, you probably do have more in common. That's particularly, unfortunately, particularly bizarre. Unfortunately, I say because it is bizarre with regard to blacks. But in the realm of the bizarre, it is even more so with regard to Latino students. This is not the New York Times, so they don't say Latino. Does the New York Times still say Latino? Got to look that up. So listen to some of the educators, not a class of people that I have great respect for. So wait a minute. So they even have separate black classes that are not even academics. They are focused on leadership skills and creating a sense of belonging. You know how sick all of this is? You know how twisted this is, this progressive, another progressive sick idea? The whole point of public schools was to create a sense of belonging as an American. That's what your sense of belonging was to be. Not black, not white, not Latino, not Asian, not Pacific Islander, not indigenous, American. That was the goal of the public school. The public school is the opposite of what it was founded to be. The opposite. A sense of belonging. Wow. Create a sense of belonging based on race. That's a scary concept. This is the Wall Street Journal. It's the news section, not the opinion section. RSECs. Federal anti-discrimination laws prevent public schools from mandatorily separating students by race, but education lawyers say optional courses can comply with the law. Now, ladies and gentlemen, the punchline. A lot of times within our education system, black students are expected to conform to a white standard, said Dina Luna, who leads black student achievement initiatives in Minneapolis public schools. Wow. This is exactly what the Ku Klux Klan would say. Calculus has a white standard because whites, they say, are superior. And now we have a black activist, educator, progressive, saying what? Math classes have white standards. I thought the standards had nothing to do, nothing, with race. How is there a white standard in a pre-calculus class? I'm serious. I'd like to know. Well, the Oregon Education Department already announced that the notion that there are objectively accurate answers in math is white supremacist. Yeah. And people will still vote Democrat. We return. I'm reading to you a staggering statement, staggering statement inside a staggering column. White standard. I would give Dina Luna publicly, I don't know what it would take, $500, $1,000, I'm serious, to specify what the white standards are. You can't pay guests to come on a radio show. So I would give, I don't know, can I give it to her favorite charity? How to Hurt Blacks Incorporated? No, not even hurt, Demean. I think that's better. White standards. Wow. These are terms that are brand new in America. The district, this is in Minneapolis, offers middle and high school student initiative electives focused on African American history and social emotional support taught by teachers of color. Wow. That's going to really help young blacks get ahead in America. African American history, social emotional support, and teachers of color. Wow. I'm curious, do whites care if they have a teacher of color or a teacher who's white? So is it a white standard that it doesn't matter what color your teacher is, but it's a black standard that your teacher should be your color? Why isn't that an insult to blacks? I just, I'm missing something. Created in 2015 for black boys, the format has expanded to black girls and will soon expand to Latino students. That's right, Latino kids, your parents came from a Latin American country, and we're going to help you maintain a separate identity from American. Welcome to Evanston, Illinois and Minneapolis, Minnesota. In our spaces, you don't have to shed one ounce of yourself because everything about our space is rooted in blackness. Dina Luna said, wow. What exactly is blackness? What exactly is white standards? Are there black math standards, Dina Luna? Do you understand how despicable progressives are? Do you understand this? Most people don't because they don't want to confront it. They're despicable. They hurt people. They are ruining the country. Is this not an obvious example? Separate black kids to have an all-blackness experience. And that, I'm supposed to believe, is progressive. And liberals will vote for progressives all the time. The liberal agenda was integration. The progressive agenda is segregation. There's nothing progressives can do, not even support Hamas, that will change the liberal vote. Nothing. Nothing. It's astonishing. Max Eden, an education researcher at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute, said he believes affinity classes undermine the goal of the Civil Rights Act. Mr. Eden, that is what we would call an understatement, not a criticism. It's an affirmation of what you said, but I needed to note what an understatement it is. Integration is a positive social good, not among progressives. And the liberals who vote for them agree with you, but vote for them. We want students to be colorblind and to treat each other only on the basis of who they are as human beings. That's correct. That's what we want. That's the white standard, apparently. We don't give a damn about your race. That's conservative. Your race is everything. That's progressive. Get it? I told you earlier in the show, as I say every show, the gap between left and right is unbridgeable. We want you to be colorblind. That is correct. That is the liberal value. I have an article on the Internet, a column I wrote a couple of years ago. 32 questions you should ask your liberal relative or friend to find out if they're left or liberal. 32 questions. Take a look. I'm going to get you the name. It's not titled 32 questions. It may just be questions. Are you a liberal or a conservative? No, no, excuse me. Are you a liberal or a leftist quiz? Colorblind is liberal. Blackness is astonishing. The very word. Everything about our space is rooted in blackness. This is a Minneapolis educator. Somebody said our space is rooted in white. Well, I guess she believes all the other spaces are rooted in whiteness. Yeah? A squared plus B squared equals C squared is white, baby. It's a white idea. Weren't the Greeks the first to come up with that? Isn't it called the Pythagorean theorem, named after Pythagoras? Are Greeks white? That's a good question. Are Greeks white? I saw a picture of Hamas terrorists taking an Israeli on October 7th into captivity. You don't know who the Israeli is or who Hamas is. Racially, they were identical. I'm reading to you something that is so sick and now is normative, progressive thought. Black students in high schools should be separated and celebrate their blackness because there are white standards in the math classes and other classes. If this is not contemptuous of blacks, then my read of the human condition is truly defective. The article is in the Wall Street Journal. We'll put it up at Dennis Prager dot com. That blackness line really is going to resonate with me. Evanston, Illinois, Illinois, is taking the strategy one step further, offering courses for black and Latino students in core math classes, algebra two, pre-calculus and AP calculus, as well as an English seminar. Wouldn't you like to know how their algebra two class differs from a regular algebra two class, where people of all races attend? Since it's inconceivable to me even progressives will not change mathematical equations or algebraic equations to be specific, the only difference is the comfort level you will have with all blackness. But then that is an admission that the entire experiment in multiculturalism has failed. We cannot survive as one nation. We must separate. That's what you're saying. Since there can't be different algebraic equations in algebra two for black and Latino students. Oh boy, I feel like I represent this is a student who has taken one of these classes. It's called AXLE, A-X-L-E. They did a good one. Advancing excellence, lifting everyone. By the way, if they advance excellence, I think that's great. They lift everyone, I think that's great. Here's a black student who took an AXLE class in 2021. I feel like I represent me and not the whole black race in this AP class, said a student who took an AXLE class in 2021. It's a safe space. It's become normative safe space. You should see the movie I made with Adam Carolla, No Safe Spaces. In AP classes that are mostly white, I feel like if I answer wrong, I am representing all black kids. I stay quiet in those classes. Now that's a very interesting, that is a serious thought. That is not mockable. It is true that in any society, if you are known to be or visibly a member of a different group in some way, you do tend to represent the group. That is true. I was raised with that very, very strongly. As a Jewish kid in religious schools, I went to Orthodox Yeshivas until I was 19 years of age. We were told regularly how you behave will reflect on Judaism, on God, and if you're a religious Jew, how you behave reflects on God, not just on the Jews. Every religious person should think that way, by the way. How I behave reflects on God. When I think of the priests who abused boys, it was overwhelmingly boys, prepubescent or just at puberty, did they not realize that what they did reflected on God? So there is truth to what this young black kid said. I wish the marauding gangs who steal in retail operations, which are overwhelmingly black kids, I wish they felt, you know, it's not good for my fellow blacks. What I'm doing is not good. So what happens when the next global crisis strikes? Countries clamp down on exports, they stockpile, the prices of drugs rise, and the pharmaceutical shelves in America are empty. That's where the Wellness Company can help. The Wellness Company's Medical Emergency Kit holds eight life-saving medications that every American should keep in his or her home. If you have Tylenol, you should have this kit. The kit contains antibiotics, antivirals, and antiparasitics like amoxicillin, ivermectin, Z-Pak, and more. It also includes a 22-page guidebook with instructions on safe usage, from benign tick bites to extreme bioterror events. Every scenario is covered. Head to twc.health slash prager and grab your Medical Emergency Kit. That's twc.health slash prager. Code prager to save 10% at checkout. This is the emergency kit that you want to have on hand. Be safe, be prepared, and stay well. Kits are only available in the USA. Hi there, everybody. One of my favorite people I have on the line, David Horowitz, who's been a prophet in our age. His understanding of the left is unsurpassed, and he has warned about these matters all of his life. He has a new book out, which is essential reading, and I have already purchased it, by the way. Not only did I get a copy, but I purchased it myself as well. The Radical Mind, The Destructive Plans of the Woke Left. You should get it just for his dedication to his wife. It's so sweet, and I know how sincere it is. The crisis facing our nation, he writes in the beginning, is a crisis of faith. Faith in the Constitution that has shaped our destiny. Faith in individual freedom and accountability. Faith in the principle of equality before the law. Yes, well, I would add faith in Judeo-Christian values, and it's not an argument, it's just I fully subscribe to what he said. Well, David Horowitz, how are you? I never ask guests how they are, but I'm asking you. First of all, Dennis, I have to say how much I admire the work that you're doing. Especially these young spokesmen that you've developed who are so articulate and winning. It's one of the few hopes we have of saving this country. We're in a situation where our streets are filled with supporters of Hamas Nazis, openly calling for a second Holocaust of the Jews, virtually unimaginable only a few years ago. The prime responsibility rests with our corrupt universities and colleges, which is why Prager University is so important. But a heavy burden rests on the evil president of the United States, who's a criminal who hates America, and who has betrayed this country over and over again. And his party, the Democrat Party, if you remember, one of Trump's first acts when he became president was to try to put in place a plan that actually originated with Obama. Not to allow immigration from failed states who couldn't fit the people who would be immigrating to our country. So we wouldn't know. Since they were terrorist states, we wouldn't know who was bringing terrorists into our country. They called Trump a racist. I don't know if you agree with me, but I think there's going to be terrible violence and terrible tragedies ahead of us before any of this can be fixed. What will spark that violence? I don't know if you could be that specific in your prognostication, but I'm asking you. Well, let's see. A drug addict who redeemed himself on fentanyl ignited a movement. I'm speaking, of course, of George Floyd, a lifelong criminal. Inspired a movement that wrecked, torched 220 American cities, caused thousands of deaths, and mainly, of course, black deaths. It's all based on the hoax that America is a white supremacist state. One of the chapters of my new book, The Radical Mind, is about a war council. It's not my description. It's the description of the people who organized it. The war council in Flint, organized by the leaders of SBS, which was the largest left-wing campus movement at the time, calling for a war against white people and debating. They're the ones who came up with the charge of white supremacy, which is ridiculous about America. But they were actually discussed at the Flint War Council whether to kill white babies. This resonates with October 7th because white people were the problem, which was a Nazi idea in itself. To eliminate a race and solve the world's problems that way. It has an indigenous root. Of course, one of the leaders of the Weather Underground, which held the war council, was Bill Ayers, who was Obama's close political advisor. And probably co-authored, ghosted his autobiography. Unfortunately, this reflects the fact that these are deep-seated roots in our country, based in the political left. Let me just say one more thing about this. The left, one of the things I try to do in my book is explain to conservatives how the radical mind works. Why conservatives who are reasonable people and patriots are always befuddled by when they see what leftist causes are and what leftists say in defense of them. And their reaction is these people are crazy. They're out of touch with reality and so forth. All of which has a truth to it. But the main thing is that they're ideologues. So, for example, the other day when Chuck Schumer spoke about it very weakly, in my view, about anti-Semitism, he went over the history of the persecution of the Jews, which is thousands of years. And the Holocaust. And the persecution of Jews. And the founding of Israel. As though facts could affect these minds. The radical mind is untouched by facts. A radical looks at what's happening in the Middle East and says Israel is a colonial settler state and therefore we have to destroy it because it's oppressing people. We have to form that yet and these massacres are all part of our resistance and a fight for self-determination. All of this is completely detached from the reality of how Israel was created, let alone the reality of colonial settlerism, as it were. America is a colonial settler state because they hate America. And the cloyists, everybody is either descended from the cloyists or the settlers. The settlers themselves created the most progressive, most egalitarian, most inclusive, most tolerant society. And the greatest engine of prosperity in the history of the world. So if you are thinking of the facts, you would know that it's a good thing to be a colonial settler in some circumstances. And in some places it depends on what you do with it. Also, Israel doesn't occupy, and that's one of their cries, free Palestine and the Israeli occupation. There's not a square inch of territory that's part of Israel that was taken from an Arab, let alone a Palestinian. Palestinians didn't even exist in 1923. Alright, hold on there. We're going to take a quick break and the book is The Radical Mind by the inimitable David Horowitz. Hi everybody. Speaking to the dean of predictors of what's happening in America. He grew up in a communist, literally in a communist home. And because he thinks morally he rejected communism. And he understands the title of his book, The Radical Mind, brand new David Horowitz book up at dennisprager.com, The Destruction Plans of the Woke Left. So David, we're kindred spirits on this matter and people ask me all the time, so what is the end game of the left? We're not talking liberals, we're talking what you're talking about, the radical mind.

"I would say these these. These two words would and could are both quite polite. We use them in polite speaking It depends on what kind of question you would be asking But i would say if you are talking to someone. Like let's say i'm talking to my boss i think would would be more commonly used So for example instead of saying do you want to go see a movie. I might say. Would you like to go see a movie and actually more polite than could would be. The word may so could is another is a question word So i might say. Could i Let's say my student asks me. Could i go use my phone more. Polite may i. So if you're using would in a question that's polite may also polite Could i can't think of a form where that wouldn't be polite. So i would say they're. They're both into to us but would an may are very polite very formal polite question forms. Thank you for your question. I can't get enough of learning english.

It's so busy too many people. I'm not a big fan. I don't like it very much all right so we have talked about asking for and giving our opinions talking about things we like and don't like last. Let's put it all together and see how all of these things would come together in an english conversation so here we have two people talking. Let's see. hey john. There's a new. Christopher nolan movie out. What do you think of his movies. Oh i can't get enough of his movies if you ask me. He is one of the best modern directors. How do you feel about going to see the new movie together. I feel like that's a great idea. Personally i think we should go see it as soon as possible. So let's take a look a little bit closer so we start with asking for john's opinion. What do you think of his movies of christopher nolan's movies and his opinion i can't get enough of his movies. Which means he likes them a lot then. He shares his opinion about the director. If you ask me. He's one of the best modern directors and then asking for an opinion about doing something. How do you feel about going to see the new movie together. I feel i feel like that's a great idea. And then another opinion personally. I think we should go see it as soon as possible.

Fresh update on "english" discussed on Dear Dyslexic Podcast

"My own research is around a concept called lexism, and lexism is like racism, sexism, etc., except it's that which is applicable to dyslexics. So it's the othering and discrimination of dyslexics. Now that has some similarities with what's referred to as the social model of dyslexia, which was first put forward by Barbara Riddick, which was an adaptation of the social model of disability, but applied to dyslexics, and it's a very good model. It's very strong, and certainly there would be some argument by some people saying we shouldn't mess with it, and lexism is similar to that in some regards. So there are three key features to the social model of dyslexic. The first is that dyslexics face discrimination, prejudice, and so on and so forth. I don't really need to explain that to this audience because I'm sure they're more than well aware of that. The other factor is the importance of social and cultural norms, so how a language is constructed. So English, for example, is very irregular. It's a difficult language because it is so irregular. It doesn't follow any easy patterns, whereas Spanish is much more regular, much more consistent, and so is easier to learn to read, which is why in Spanish-speaking countries, generally speaking, literacy rates tend to be higher, or if they start at a low base, say in South America, they're easier to push up, whereas English-speaking countries are a bit more resistant because it's such an awkward, messed-up language. So those are two key features, both of which I agree with. So lexism would have those features in it. The third feature is dyslexia as an impairment. So in Riddick's model, dyslexia is an impairment. Now, she's not completely clear whether she means some sort of neurological impairment, some sort of disorder. She's not clear on what she means really by impairment, but impairment is used a lot in disability studies to distinguish between a medical issue and a cultural issue. So the cultural is that which disables somebody, but the impairment is, so for example, if somebody is an amputee, for example, then they have an impairment in terms of walking, right? Well, that's fine and fair enough for things which are physical or sensory, but for something like dyslexia, which is built on the assumption of literacy, and that becomes slightly problematic because if the other bit of the model is social cultural norms, well, social cultural norms and literacy don't stay the same. So my concern, and this is going to sound counterintuitive to a lot of your audience, and I should remind people at this point, I am dyslexic myself. I'm not pushing out a view out of ignorance. is that we need to separate the idea of dyslexic and dyslexia, because dyslexia as a theory exists to explain dyslexics, and it exists in the psychological realm and sometimes the neuroscientific realm. That doesn't necessarily mean it's the only theory or the only option we've got. The other option is to think about the existence of dyslexics as being socially constructed. In other words, we exist because there's this distorted and frankly wrong view that somehow intelligence and literacy are linked. They're not linked. You can have somebody who's not very bright, but very literate and vice versa, so that they really aren't linked at all. And there's plenty of psychologists who recognize that. And sometimes what happens is when psychologists start questioning the existence of dyslexia, journalists take it up and mangle the hell out of it. And you get a very unsophisticated view of what they're saying. And actually, they aren't denying the existence of dyslexics per se. What they're doing is questioning the existence of dyslexia, because as a concept, it doesn't really work very well. So what I'm saying when you say we should shift to looking at this as terms of dyslexics are defined by lexism. They are other than discriminated by lexism. So you have a bunch of social norms and expectations or academics sometimes called normative practices or normative assumptions, whichever discriminate people. So how a word is spelt, the fact that you should know and remember how that word is spelt, and so on and so forth. All of those things are actually much more fluid than people realize. So I'll give you an example. This is what a friend of mine calls a Craig special, because it's suitably obscure, weird, and historic, because I started out life as a historian. St. Ambrose of Milan, so we're going back to the 5th century here. Well, late 4th, actually, early 5th, was deemed unusual. And we've got a couple of historical sources. One of them is Confessions of St. Augustine. The other one is The Life of St. Ambrose, where St. Ambrose is seen to be very strange, weird, and have some mysterious power, because he can read silently in his head. Well, reading silently in your head now is not a biggie. You know, everybody does that. You know, it's not considered odd. But at that time, it was considered highly unusual, because when people read, they read out loud. Well, that's an example of a normative practice and a normative assumption associated with literacy. And you can see what exists now and what existed then is very different. Another example would be the spelling of English in the 17th century. People tended to spell as they spoke. So it was very normal to have a whole range of different spellings for words. But now we have a much more restricted thing. So as a kid, I grew up in the South of England, and I couldn't spell the word castle. And I kept putting an R in it, because the way, if you're brought up in the South of England, you pronounce castle, castle. So I ended up spelling it like that. My wife, who's a good northerner, also castle. And she's quite right to call it castle, because then you don't misspell it. So even dialect pronunciation differences. I, up the road from me, well, from an Australian point of view, it's random. You know, it's just up the street. From an English point of view, it's a fair few miles away, is the Lake District. And in the Lake District, there's a village, or there's three villages, and they're all called Plough, but they're all pronounced differently. So you can go up there, and the road, this is going to confuse the hell out of anybody who's not local. They all point to Plough in different directions, but there are three different villages called Plough, and they're all pronounced very, very differently. And I can't remember what the different pronunciations are. So those are examples of practices and assumptions where nice, neat little norms don't really work out. So when you get to psychological testing, and you've got to bear in mind, psychologists are obsessed with data, obsessed with numbers. They're not very good at interpreting that. I mean, I knew a psychologist. He's a very good psychologist. A guy called Victor van Dahl, who used to work at the same institution as me. Very eminent psychologist. And he always struck me as very intelligent, very sensible, because he would quite often say, I can only tell you what, I can't tell you why. And I really wish other psychologists were as sensible as him, because they do tend to build very fancy interpretations on a bunch of numbers, without thinking about wider issues. One of the ways I try and question a lot of these assumptions is through what's called thought experiments. Thought experiments are kind of hypothetical what-ifs, and they go back a long time. They go back to Plato. But other ones you might be more familiar with, if you've got any physicists in your audience. Einstein's special theory of relativity, if I remember rightly, he had this idea about a train traveling at the speed of light. Well, obviously, no train is going to travel at the speed of light. His point was to push our conceptual understandings forward by really trying to understand, yes, but what's actually going on here, to question a bunch of assumptions. And the problem with having lots of numbers, unless you really do some really solid conceptual work about, yes, but what does that actually mean, you could get to the wrong assumption very, very quickly. So some of my thought experiments test and question the concept of dyslexia. Some of them sort of try and lay out how we might understand lexism, because it's a new concept. It's a concept that I created because there wasn't a working concept that I could use, so I had to create one to try and really get us to question things. Now, with the exception of Victor, who did read one of my articles and did understand them, I'm not sure that any other psychologists have read them or understood them. So, you know, they're not really, you know, if you raise my name as a psychologist, they wouldn't have heard of me. But most of my stuff appears in, well, I've got a few articles in the British Journal of Special Education. I've got a couple in Disability and Society. So these are much more disability scholars, critical disability studies kind of area, which seems to be much more open to this. But this would, I think, underline my personal view is that we should be shifting the discussion to sociology. It shouldn't really exist in the realm of psychology because psychology doesn't help us. If anything, I think it's part of the problem. I don't think it's part of the solution. Are you saying that dyslexia doesn't exist in the form that we know it as? Yeah, basically. Which is why I said we need to separate the two. And why I stress that I'm dyslexic myself. I mean, this is a comparative case. It's not the same. I'm not saying it's the same. It's a comparative case. Think how race and gender were constructed a hundred years ago. That doesn't mean that there weren't women and there weren't black people. It just means they were constructed very, very differently. They were medicalized. Well, I think dyslexia has been medicalized and psychologized, however you should put it. And I don't think dyslexia as a concept helps us much. For a concept to be of any use, it's going to help us. I don't think it helps us. I think it gets in the way. We end up sometimes self oppressing. Dyslexics exist. Our difficulties exist. But put it this way. This is this is an example of a thought experiment. Say you've got three guys, right? One's dyslexic. Sorry, one's severely dyslexic. One's mildly dyslexic and one isn't. Right? And they get in a time machine and bear in mind, it is a thought experiment so you can have whatever you like in a thought experiment. They get in a time machine, they go back to the 17th century. Well, the guy who's mildly dyslexic isn't really hasn't got any issues anymore because he's meeting social norms of literacy. There's no difficulty. You know, he ceased to be in effect dyslexic. The guy who's severely dyslexic still got literacy issues, but they're not as bad. The guy who's not dyslexic is not affected either way. They then get in the time machine and go to a far future where the norms of literacy have gone up. Expectations of literacy have gone up. Attitudes to literacy has hardened and become even more awkward than they are now. Right? When they get out of the time machine, the guy who wasn't dyslexic is now dyslexic. Do you see what I mean when I say, well, where's the dyslexia? The answer is it was never there. The dyslexic was there and the dyslexic is defined by the societal context that they're in. But I'm not really sure that dyslexia is helping as much there. And if you go back to Barbara Riddick's idea of the social model of dyslexia, her argument, part of her argument was that dyslexia is a phonological deficit. Well, okay, maybe. But in a given time and culture, somebody's othered and discriminated by that, by how that impacts them. But the obvious question is, okay, you've got somebody with a phonological deficit. If you go to a time and a place where they're not othered and discriminated at because of that deficit, do they cease to be dyslexic? Or if you take them, or if you take somebody who isn't dyslexic and put them in a place where they are, either by the school norms and difficulties with literacy, or where was the dyslexia? This is the really problematic stuff. This is where people really got to think about it. They've really got to problematise it. And it's very uncomfortable because we grow up, certainly in my experience, I was fighting for, my mother especially, was fighting for the acknowledgement of the dyslexia diagnosis.

"There are a few different endings. We add all very often to verbs to turn them into adjectives. For example play could become playable. Remove could become removable so sometimes we had. Ab elia ib l. e. to turn into a verb into an adjective or attract might be attractive. Iv e. or even a tractable ryan so there are different ways you can use the ending their Just be careful with your usage and if you want to make it a little more natural you can Look at those different endings that we would use to change verb to an adjective very good and then Somebody's writing for example. I kick out my friend from my house. That's correct terrible here yet out more. Yeah you know. That's pretty good Let's see There's one Let's see okay there. This one's for you. I think please explain some topics like reading techniques minute meaning reports parts of speech conversion interesting. Those are that's that's that's too many topics maybe choose alive. Go ahead and talk about reading techniques. Let's see maybe maybe don can help me here too with some different reading techniques Well of course. I have to say if you're working on your reading. You should check out our english videos where you look at a story that goes live in gradually increases in difficulty So for reading techniques. Let's see kind of blinking right now in on some strategies that you could use. Could you help me out done or we also have a book with high s. where Where you can practice your reading by. It's a by reading a something in a simple form and then reading it in more complex forms afterwards and then seeing how well you can do with answering questions about what you read their pretty simple questions but but that's that's something you can do i would not worry too much about different techniques In the sense that don't feel that you're reading in the wrong way or something like that Focus more on reading information. i Like there are different techniques for reading something closely But i for people who are trying to get better. I don't think it's necessary to ply apply them just yet Focus more on on for information and learn as much as i can and what you want to practice in a way in which you could check that you understood what you read. That would be what i would say. You should focus on. I read and situation can confirm that you understood one. Great way to do that is to choose something. Choose a book for example that you've already read in your native language and tried to read it in english so for example. I love harry potter guys..

Would you say don i would say. Yes if i'm trying to work out a problem it's means the same as i'm trying to figure out a problem so these two are interchangeable. I would say there. I mean there's a somewhat of a difference in feeling between the two but I mean in most context. You could use either one I can imagine certain contexts in which you might prefer one over the other but even if you use the other one people would still understand you. Would you would. You'll be wouldn't it. Wouldn't change the meaning right so the meaning is the same. It means i'm trying to solve a problem or i'm trying to figure out workout.

I kicked the can To subject being the recipient of an action the can was kicked by me. That's passive voice. So that's the difference between a passive voice and active voice which is the normal way and then a verb change to an adjective is.

"And what is a license plate. A light source so new yorker choirs people people to have a license plate. Well this idea. You've seen it because all countries require some kind of registration for any vehicle on the road and it's usually a metal sometimes a plastic thing that has letters and numbers on it that indicates your registration and sometimes this thing is called a license plate and sometimes it's called a number plate in british english. They refer to it as eight number plate and sometimes it can be called a vehicle registration plate but basically all countries require something like this For any vehicle on the road so in nineteen o one on this day The state of new negro required that driver Have a license plate and at first they just required that you have your initials the initials of the driver. So my case d. w b. There would just be your initials on the back of your car But after that two years later they're even more cars around and so they expanded the requirement they increased it and so they made it a requirement that the licence plate actually be something with black numbers on a white background. So that's what happened on this date in history back in nineteen o one and The requires license plates for All motor vehicles I've got a license plate on on my Car back home And a friend of mine that used to have a license plate that actually was letters instead of numbers and The letters spelled out His name So some places In the united states let you do that. They let you get a vehicle registration. That is some word Has to be an appropriate word. Can't be a dirty word or something offensive but it's a simple word And a lot of times people do something like that in the us. I don't know of other countries that allow this But in the us today They allow you in some states. You have to pay a little extra money and you get. It's called a vanity license plate a vanity plate So a plate. That is Something expressing you some expressing your ideas okay. So that's it for this day in history and now let me ask a answer. Some questions and address some people So there's a question already What is the difference between require requirement while require as a verb and requirement is a noun so to require something. is is an action. I require you to pass or a. You are required to pass. Requirement is a noun this is a requirement it is a requirement to pass this class. So that's really the difference between the The two of those. And i want to just say hello to some of the different places that Our viewers are from Today i saw. These are the ones that i saw earlier So people were posting from sri lanka from oman from on gola from the philippines from japan And from pakistan.

"That's an interesting also slang phrase in english and it means A a narrow escape or king close to Something happening it could be something good or it could be something bad usually. It's something bad and close shave. It comes from the shaving. Your face a close shave means you got all the hair off your hair. Your face is very smooth because you removed everything so if you have a close shave with something you came so close that you can even feel the distance of hair so that idea of having a close shave means to come in very close contact with something without quite touching it so it means for something bad almost to happen so the father and his son had a close shave with a bad situation but as it was nothing bad happened they they just stepped out of the way.

"Today we're going to learn english about some strange phrases and sayings in american english. Let's get started. The first weird american english chain is. It's not rocket science. This is used to say that something or some task isn't very difficult to do or to understand. Rocket science is difficult to do. But if something isn't very difficult you can say it's not rocket science for example cooking it. Egg isn't rocket science. You just crack the egg and put it in the pan and cook it. Hey chad what are you doing. Can't you see i'm working. Can you help me. I don't know how to do this report. That report isn't rocket science rocket science. It's a saying in english. It means reports are easy. Please leave me alone and do your reports. The next one is working the graveyard shift. A graveyard is a place to bury dead people. What does that have to do with working if someone works the graveyard shift. It typically means they work from midnight until eight. Am this term is very old and has a long explanation. But you just need to know if someone works the graveyard shift. It means that they work late at night until the morning is an example. I just started working the graveyard shift at the grocery store. This means the person works overnight at the grocery store. Have a look at this example. Hygena i haven't seen you in a while. I've been working the graveyard shift for the last several weeks. That's why you haven't seen me you've been working at a graveyard no silly the graveyard shift. It means i work from midnight until eight am he. The next weird american english thing is under the weather. If someone is feeling under the weather it means they are feeling sick. Or ill commonly people will say i m feeling a bit under the weather or i'm feeling a little under the weather for example. I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I think i'm getting a cold. Have a look at this example. John you weren't at work today where you up partying with your friends too late. No i was just feeling a bit under the weather so i didn't come to work today. Is that okay with you. You don't look like you're sick to me. The next thing is shoot. The breeze shoot is like shooting. A gun and brees is a slight wind. So you might think that shoot. The breeze means to shoot a gun into the air shoot. The breeze actually means to have a conversation about various topics for example. We sat in a cafe last night and shot the breeze for several hours. Last weird american english rate is to put lipstick on a pig to sing is used when someone tries to make some changes to something that is old or ugly to make it. Look better or prettier. Lipstick is a kind of cosmetic that people put on their lips to make themselves look prettier. The idea is that if you put lipstick on a pig it's still a pig. It didn't make it prettier. Let's imagine example where someone has a terrible old car that they want to sell. They might put some new paint on it to try and make it look better to sell but the car is still old and terrible. The penny didn't make it better over here. it's me. John have a look at my new car. What do you think what is wrong with you. John stopping in the middle of the road like that. It's very dangerous and that's not a new car. That's the same old terrible car you just painted it red. You just put lipstick on a pig. Today we covered the sayings.
