Welcome to another awesome chin-wagging episode here on the Aussie English podcast! Today's guest is David Rajaraman! Last time, we talked about how he went from India, to Brunei, to Australia, then to Japan, all in just about 30 years of his life In today's episode, we talk about how David grew up bilingual then realised that that wasn't the norm in many places around the world! This seems to be specifically in English speaking countries, where most people are monolingual. We also talk about cultural differences between Japan and Australia. Like what happens if you lose your wallet in public, or how you're treated if you have tattoos. We talk about tight versus loose cultures. Tight, being more conservative and strict, whereas loose cultures are more relaxed and open. We even talk about the Japanese mafia known as the Yakuza. We talk about the phenomenon of Westerner, YouTube polyglots who are learning foreign languages and native speakers being shocked when they reach an advanced level! But it's sort of puzzling why, when non-Westerners (i.e. a Chinese guy) learn English to a very advanced level, people don't seem to mind at all! Let me know what you think about this episode!

Have you ever laughed at the fact that, in English, there are so many words that contradict themselves? For instance, if Paul rents a room, is he the one paying the landlord, or is he himself the landlord? Or how you can have clothes that will wear for a long time, but then eventually the wear on them begins to show? Or one of my current favorites, how you can be cheerfully sanguine (confidently optimistic) while your neighbor is a sanguine (bloodthirsty) lunatic? These types of words are called contronyms, and of course Spanish has them, too! So let's dive in, and afterwards we'll talk about the official holidays of Guatemala.

When you learn with stories, you don't just learn a language, you learn to use the language from a practical perspective. The biggest pull when reading a story is to discover what happens next. So, learning with stories means you to focusing on the events of the story, instead of the grammar of the language. This focus on meaning, helps you communicate in the language from the start.

When you're raising a bilingual child and you're the the only source of one of your child's two or more languages, it can be a good idea to try and find other people or places for your child to hear and use that language. One way you can do this is to use multimedia resources such as tv and films, apps, audiobooks and music. In Hot off the Press, we talk about a recent piece of research from Singapore that investigates whether using multimedia resources really does support bilingual children's language development. This is the study in question: Sun H and Yin B (2020) Multimedia Input and Bilingual Children's Language Learning. Front. Psychol. 11:2023. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2020.02023     The researchers asked what matters most: how much time children spend engaging with this resources or how many different kinds of multimedia resources they use? It turns out that for the dominant language in the children's wider environment, English, multimedia resources didn't have much of an impact at all. For their children's heritage language, Mandarin Chinese, the diversity of resources was positively related to their scores on a range of language tests, but how much time they spent engaging with such resources was not.  Our discussion of multimedia resources continues in Let's Klets when I speak to Ute Limacher-Riebold from the PEACH project. The PEACH project is a European project supporting families raising bilingual and multilingual chidlren by creating a handbook for parents and educators as well as informative videos and a whole host of free resources for you to use (be sure to scroll to the bottom of the page!). As Ute mentioned in our conversation, there's also an ever-increasing set of Spotify playlists with all kinds of audio resources in a range of different languages (go to Spotify and search for PEACH project) and there are PEACH ambassadors around the world. Ute also mentioned a number of other resources she's been involved in creating, including the Activities for Multilingual Families YouTube channel. Ute Limacher-Riebold is a language consultant with expertise in intercultural communication and multilingualism. She is based in the Netherlands but has lived in various countries around the world, although never in her parents' country of origin, Germany.

Benny shares how he uses the "Pomodoro Technique" in his language missions,, and explains how you can use it to work or study for longer periods of time. The Pomodoro Technique is a very accessible system of working that requires nothing more than a timer and a little bit of self discipline (but not that much!). Benny has found it really helps him to manage his ADHD, maintain focus, and not give into distractions.To ask Benny a question, leave a comment on Instagram (@languagehacking) or Twitter (@fi3m), or you can email ask@languagehacking.com

Anki is a free flashcard app that utilises spaced repetition theory to help you learn vocabulary that you input yourself. While some people may find Anki a bit bland, Benny explains how the simplicity of the software not only makes learning more efficient and focussed, but also has a lot of specific benefits for someone with ADHD. Benny guides you through the key features of Anki and the process of importing your own vocabulary lists, so you can make sure you're learning words that are relevant to you.You can find a more detailed guide to using Anki here: https://www.fluentin3months.com/anki-cards/To ask Benny a question, leave a comment on Instagram (@languagehacking) or Twitter (@fi3m), or you can email ask@languagehacking.com

Your nonprofit can use new science as a tool to help others and to understand how the brain functions and learns. Rachel Paling, author of Brain Friendly and Language Learning and Founder of Neuro Heart Education Foundation, dedicated her life to training educators and helping educators to use coaching as a vehicle of communication.  Conversation Highlights {00:52} Introduction of the guest {01:54} Some positives for the current education model {04:15} The importance of teaching the teachers {08:54} Neuroplasticity  {11:51} Reinforcing areas where you have strengths  {21:13} Learning form triggers instead of reacting to them  {24:38} The neural Heart Education Foundation    Remarkable Quotes Rachel: There is a trend towards educators adapting to their learners. Rachel: I grew up thinking that the brain could not change. Travis: We are not our thoughts. We are not our feelings. Rachel: We need to adapt the way we deliver information, adapt it to the learners of today. Rachel: How do we as adults, children, teenagers take control of our brains and manage ourselves.   Rachel Paling Bio Rachel Paling started teaching English as a Foreign Language to adults over 30 years ago and after obtaining a BA Honours in Law and Spanish (with distinction in spoken Spanish) at the University of Sheffield (UK), she went on to do a master's in human Rights and Democratization (EMA) at the University of Padua, Italy and Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. This concept called Neurolanguage Coaching emerged through her own experience of teaching languages over the past 34 years. This combined with her own experience of learning languages, namely French, Spanish, Italian, German, and some Catalan, with basics of Arabic and Russian and a hunger to learn more, such as Chinese. In 2019, Efficient Language Coaching and Neurolanguage Coaching® won the Re-Imagine Education Bronze award in the Science of Learning category. In March 2020, Rachel completed her Master's in Applied Neuroscience and continues to study Neuroscience to develop and enhance her knowledge. In the same year, Brainz Magazine included me in their top 500 Companies, Entrepreneurs, Influential Leaders, and Business Owners who are recognized for their entrepreneurial success, achievements, or dedication to helping others. The following year, she was delighted to be awarded the Crea Global Award by Brainz Magazine. In addition, her own personal development as a life coach over 11 years and burning interest in what we are now discovering through modern neuroscience about the brain – and how the brain functions, reacts, and learns – have all contributed to the creation of this concept and method. Using this method, Rachel has trained over 1200 language teachers worldwide, certifying them as Neurolanguage Coaches – certified by taking our training courses which are some of the only language coaching certification courses in the world accredited by International Coach Federation USA. She now delivers this course to teachers of all disciplines with a vision to transform and enhance the learning process.
