    A place where there are Leicester and Everton fans, and from next season, Arsenal & Manchester United fans too.

    Sorry, I just can't stand people who make a living selling false promises and "secrets" that don't really exist. It's not much different from a charlatan selling snake oil or anyone offering a "get rich quick" scheme; it's just false advertising and selling a dream to naive bored people who want their "foreign language proficiency" to be a trophy displayed on their social networking profile to be able to jerk themselves off in a "polyglot" circle. He claims to have found a unique hack to enable anyone to become fluent in any language extremely fast and talks down all other learning methods as being wrong - that alone is complete bullshit as you know well that each person has different learning styles and one method doesn't fit all anyway. And unless by "being fluent" he means being able to blabber through a very basic conversation based on memorised phrases you can find in any tourist phrasebook, it's a load of bollocks. How many years does it take to be truly fluent in a language and talk almost like a native? Years, if ever. And as you said - the key to it is studying and using it. Can I have my 70 Euros now for such an enlightened advice and language learning hack?...

    It's hilarious that Shapiro genuinely convinced himself he was smart after 10 years of "debating" Tucker Carlson and kids just out high school. Shapiro is an idiot's idea of an intellectual. He starts from insane and unfounded preconceptions about "Judeo-Christian" ethics and from there flies into even more batshit opinions. He's a racist and a religious fundamentalist cos-playing as a political theorist. He's also a midget that speaks like a Tickle-me Elmo just to put the cherry on top. He's like a little puppet in a suit that corporate interests have rammed their hand up the arse of because he gets internet edge-lords to vote. Also don't underrate the fact that he says that virginity is cool. That alone is enough to get quite a lot of people to rally around you.

    Managed to land these tickets. Cant rotate the image because Rab cant handle the quality of my phone. The show started off 10/10. Then it went to an 8/10. Then before you knew it we didn't see Bekcy, Bayley or Rusev and we were watching 205 live. They did this weird thing where Charlotte walked to the ring. Got an absolutely brilliant reception because in the UK we love her. Then the lights went black and they played some feel sorry for Becky video, and we never saw her again. Pissed me right off. How can you have such a hot commodity and not even let her say something. Confused the audience and the crowd went flat after that. Which I imagine will show on the televised show.

    Ben Shapiro is an intellectual fraud and seeing him utterly humiliated like this was great He wasn’t happy with the nature of the interview because he’s used to softball questions from American “journalists” that agree with everything he said. When asked to defend his ideological positions or explain things from his book that were inconsistent with things he’d said in the past, he just had an absolute meltdown. ”How dare you quote things I’ve said back at me, what a dirty interviewing tactic! I am famous you are just doing this to me because I’m famous!!!” is absolutely having a tantrum. He was ironically honest though when he said he has a whole website of stupid things he’s said

    Well I live in Liverpool which has a growing community of Spanish/Latin Americans so Spanish would probably be useful in that regard.

    Intensive learning by immersion has been there for thousands of years... Benny Lewis certainly didn't invent it but he's definitely good at selling it as his own and marketing and promoting himself as a "polyglot" despite not being able to demonstrate a high level of fluency in most of the languages he claims to be fluent in haha. Just another guru-style bullshitter selling a product with a catchy slogan.

    I highly dislike flashcards altogether (including apps like Memrise); it's just not my language learning style at all and thus feels highly unnatural to me... Just wanted to give heads up in case Toinho or anyone else feels the same...

    Should have moved it to Villa Park, kept the 16K allocations each and save on the travelling.

    It is impressive but let's see him go to a sleeping giant type club next. Take a Napoli, Liverpool, Milan, Dortmund type club to the top of their league.

    Ben Shapiro, while I disagree with most of his opinions is a very well spoken and articulate man. Surprising for him to throw such a tantrum... actually he did pitch a fit when a trans-woman (albeit a fucking Marine) threated to beat him up.

    The Algerian dialect is a mix of French and Arabic and it's really confusing to listen to because I understand the French parts then the Arabic comes I know a few words in Arabic (I don't know if it's normal Arabic or Algerian). These are the most useful ones... Fox = thaaleb (or tha3leb as they write it in Algerian) Onion = bassal I'll have no problems going to an Arabic country
