This week, Benny looks at the four pillars of language - reading, writing, speaking, and listening - and talks about his approach to each of them. He also shares his favourite online resources for working on each skill. For beginner learners who want to speak a new language, Benny's advice is to focus almost all your efforts on speaking and listening. If speaking is your goal, it should be your main focus.Using graded materials such as podcasts is a great way to practise listening, and later, short texts like Twitter posts or online articles will help you make reading progress without getting overwhelmed. Writing is a low priority for most learners until the advanced stages, unless you need it for your job.To ask Benny a question, please email ask@languagehacking.com

Saving Elephants | Millennials defending & expressing conservative values

Few individuals have had as deep an impact on modern conservative thought, yet remain in relative obscurity, as Willmoore Kendall.  The conservative English professor Jeffrey Hart said of Kendall that he was "the most important political theorist to have emerged in the twenty-odd years since the end of World War II."  Kendall's writings are thought-provoking, challenging, contentious, scrupulous, and, often, innovative.  His analysis and critiques took no prisoners on both the Right and Left, and his prickly personality shattered relationships with friends, family, and spouses alike.  Founding editor of National Review and early mentor to William F. Buckley, Kendall was on the forefront of conservative thought.  His ideas don't entirely fit squarely within the broader warring camps on the Right today, but they are nonetheless instructive, and we ignore his arguments at our own peril.   Joining Saving Elephants host Josh Lewis to discuss the life and ideas of this important yet often neglected thinker on the Right is historian Chris Owen whose new book Heaven Can Indeed Fall: The Life of Willmoore Kendall offers the definitive biography of Kendall's life and work.   Per the book's description: “Willmoore Kendall was a man against the world, a "maverick," an "iconoclast."  His thoughts were profound, his countless enemies powerful, his personal life full of drama.  Heaven Can Indeed Fall is the first full-length biography of Kendall and integrates the man with the teacher, thinker, and cold warrior.  Once a Marxist, Kendall became a fearsome foe of global communism.  He never apologized for supporting Joseph McCarthy.  As the co-founder of National Review he helped turn the word liberal into an insult.  A "stormy petrel," Kendall was a man “who never lost an argument or kept a friend.”  Yet he was one of the most effective and sensitive teachers of his age.  His ideas shaped Cold War practices of intelligence analysis and psychological warfare.  As an academic he became the premier American theorist for conservative populism.  The recent reemergence of populist ideas among American conservatives makes understanding Kendall ever more imperative.  This book shows how a child prodigy and bucolic boy scout became an ambitious intelligence analyst, razor-tongued polemicist and profound student of American politics.  By knowing Kendall one can better understand Cold War America, and contemporary America as well.”   About Chris Owen   Dr. Christopher Owen is a historian and recently retired Professor of English within the Department of Languages and Literature at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.  Dr. Owen earned his PhD in history at Emory University in 1991.  His previous book includes The Sacred Flame of Love: Methodism and Society in Nineteenth-Century Georgia.

Is your Yin and Yang energy in balance? And is the Yin and Yang energy in the world around you in balance? The energies of the Yin and Yang, or masculine and feminine, are something many of us have heard before, although many of us do not have the full understanding or awareness of the deep complexities they hold. Yin and yang, or masculine and feminine energy, is something we all hold within ourselves, but how much of each varies person to person. In this episode of the Time of the Feminine, our guest Christian Current explains the polarity and resonance between the two energies, how these energies amplify certain feelings, and how they allow us to express our truth. You'll not only leave the conversation with a beautiful understanding of Yin and Yang, but also what polarity and resonance actually are, and how both of these energies are useful to you. Christian is not only a very dear friend, mentor, and the wizard that keeps us in check, he is a longtime student and practitioner of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Polarity Therapy, Yoga, Meditation, World Religion, and Shamanism. In addition to having completed numerous shamanic and yogic trainings in the Americas and India, Christian holds a BA in Philosophy and Religion, an MA in Religious Studies and is a Phd Candidate in Asian Cultures and Languages with an emphasis on the History of Yoga and Tantra.   What we discuss: 02:50 - What pulled Christin to all of the deep work he does? 04:42 - How does the polarity of masculine and feminine presents itself in society? 07:32 - What is important for men to do in these times? 15:55 - The power of the Yin energy 22:41 - The fears of the Yin energy 30:05 - How our Yang energy supports the positive 37:59 - What does it mean to amplify the positive? 39:22 - How the Yin and Yang allows us express our truth 40:50 - How to establish a boundary 42:25 - What is the purpose of life?   Learn more about Christian: http://christianmichaelcurrent.com/about/

Hoping to unite all of humankind and revolutionize the world, Ludwik Zamenhof launched a new international language called Esperanto from late imperial Russia in 1887. Ordinary men and women in Russia and all over the world soon transformed Esperanto into a global movement. Esperanto and Languages of Internationalism in Revolutionary Russia (Bloomsbury, 2021) traces the history and legacy of this effort: from Esperanto's roots in the social turmoil of the pre-revolutionary Pale of Settlement; to its links to socialist internationalism and Comintern bids for world revolution; and, finally, to the demise of the Soviet Esperanto movement in the increasingly xenophobic Stalinist 1930s. In doing so, this book reveals how Esperanto - and global language politics more broadly - shaped revolutionary and early Soviet Russia. Based on extensive archival materials, Brigid O'Keeffe's book provides the first in-depth exploration of Esperanto at grassroots level and sheds new light on a hitherto overlooked area of Russian history. As such, Esperanto and Languages of Internationalism in Revolutionary Russiawill be of immense value to both historians of modern Russia and scholars of internationalism, transnational networks, and sociolinguistics. Brigid O'Keeffe is professor of history at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York. She is the author of Esperanto and Languages of Internationalism in Revolutionary Russia (Bloomsbury, 2021) and New Soviet Gypsies: Nationality, Performance, and Selfhood in the Early Soviet Union (University of Toronto Press, 2013).

Can We Be Wrong? The Problem of Textual Evidence in a Time of Data (Cambridge UP, 2020) by Andrew Piper tackles the problem of generalization with respect to text-based evidence in the field of literary studies. When working with texts, how can we move, reliably and credibly, from individual observations to more general beliefs about the world? The onset of computational methods has highlighted major shortcomings of traditional approaches to texts when it comes to working with small samples of evidence. This Cambridge Element combines a machine learning-based approach to detect the prevalence and nature of generalization across tens of thousands of sentences from different disciplines alongside a robust discussion of potential solutions to the problem of the generalizability of textual evidence. It exemplifies the way mixed methods can be used in complementary fashion to develop nuanced, evidence-based arguments about complex disciplinary issues in a data-driven research environment. Andrew Piper is Professor and William Dawson Scholar in the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at McGill University.

There have been dozens of people hit on State Street in Springfield, Massachusetts, in recent years, including Gayle Ball who was recently killed crossing State Street in front of the Central Library.  Council members are demanding action and they called a special meeting to discuss what can be done. The city's engineer was there as well, and what ensued was a conversation in two different languages.  One is the urgent language of the elected official, reflecting the sadness, fear, and anxiety of residents who have long dealt with this dangerous street. The other is the language of the professional, reflecting the process, standards, and accepted practices of the profession. In this episode, Chuck Marohn plays interpreter, explaining to the city's engineer—in his language—what he's being asked to do while explaining to everyone else—in their language—what exactly the engineer is saying.

Whether you realize it or not, most of the THOUGHTS and ACTIONS you take daily are based on HABITS you've developed over time. Your brain is wired to CONSERVE ENERGY whenever possible, and one of the ways it does this is by falling back to what it already knows. AND WHAT YOUR BRAIN KNOWS ARE HABITS. For the past 10 years, JAMES CLEAR has sought the answer to a single question we've all asked at one time or another…HOW CAN WE LIVE BETTER?  As you'll discover, much of the answer lies in our HABITS.   In fact, through his ongoing research, James has become a groundbreaking EXPERT this subject. His book, ATOMIC HABITS, has sold more than 5 MILLION COPIES worldwide and been translated into more than 50 LANGUAGES. Developing the right habits is an ESSENTIAL BUILDING BLOCK of my success and something I still work on daily, so I was pumped up for this week's episode. You will be, too. Like any other way to improve your life, there's a right way to develop good habits, and James lays out a detailed 4-STEP STRATEGY for doing so.   From my experience, I've learned you don't need to make massive changes in your habits.  Often you just need to change ONE MORE HABIT to propel you to new and much higher levels of success.  When you stack up small improvements by executing the right habits, you create a COMPOUNDING EFFECT that produces tremendous results. We also get into how your habits are affected by your physical and social environments, James' 4 Laws of Behavior Change, and why “NO” is the ultimate productivity hack.  Let's face it, saying NO is a problem we often struggle with (including me!), so this is a part of our exchange you'll really want to FOCUS on. If you have problems breaking bad habits, lack the motivation to change your habits, or struggle with life in general, it's time to hear what James has to say so you can change your habits and start CHANGING YOUR LIFE.
