    Learning a Foreign Language

    Learning a Foreign Language

    Language acquisition is the process by which humans acquire the capacity to perceive and comprehend language (in other words, gain the ability to be aware of language and to understand it), as well as to produce and use words and sentences to communicate.

    Second-language acquisition (SLA), sometimes called second-language learning — otherwise referred to as L2 (language 2) acquisition, is the process by which people learn a foreign language.

    In this episode, we talk about the process of learning a new language, the languages we speak, and tips on how to improve. So please bring a pen and notebook as we discuss learning a foreign language.

    Zombie Apocalypse in TW

    Zombie Apocalypse in TW

    The Zombie apocalypse is a genre of fiction in which civilization collapses due to overwhelming swarms of zombies. Typically only a few individuals or small bands of survivors are left living.

    Usually this extraordinary situation happens because of a specific parasite or infection. Because of this the government and local authorities are rendered ineffective and the rules of society go out the window.

    In this episode, we talk about some of our favorite Zombie movies, television shows, and video games. We also discuss what we would do in order to survive and what not to do during a Zombie Plague. So please bring your weapon of choice and some medical supplies as we try to survive a Zombie Apocalypse in Taiwan.

    Food We Like in Taiwan

    Food We Like in Taiwan

    Food is something that provides nutrients. Nutrients are substances that provide: energy for activity, growth, and all functions of the body such as breathing, digesting food, and keeping warm; materials for the growth and repair of the body, and for keeping the immune system healthy. Food is usually of plant, animal or fungal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. A well-balanced diet provides all of the energy you need to keep active throughout the day, nutrients you need for growth and repair, helping you to stay strong and healthy and help to prevent diet-related illness, such as some cancers.

    In this episode, we talk about some of our favorite restaurants in Taiwan as well as some of the foods we like to eat. So please get your money ready, bring your appetite and pull up a chair, as we discuss the food we like in Taiwan.
