Food is wonderful. Sharing meals with family and friends can bring people together, and remind us of old traditions. We can also build new traditions with food, and make friends by trying new things together. Food is also a good way to introduce people to a new culture.
However, talking about food isn’t always easy. In English, there are many specific words to describe how foods taste and how they feel.

Listen to this tricky little poem and you can practise your pronunciation and listening skills, and don't worry if you don't know all the words and their different pronunciation. Even Lynne got Arkansas wrong the first time round!
In fact, this was the first poem Lynne ever recorded for the site, and she's re-recorded it three times now, just to improve the quality. This will probably be the last time, unless someone buys her a recording studio. You will still need a compatible player and an up to date browser. Feel free to link to this page, and to use the sound recordings in the classroom, but please don't hotlink to them or republish them.

Roumyana Slabakova University of Southampton and University of Iowa Explaining why some linguistic features and constructions are easy or difficult to acquire in a second language has become a prominent current concern in generative second language acquisition (SLA) research. Based on a comparison of findings on the L2 acquisition of functional morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, the Bottleneck Hypothesis argues that functional morphemes and their features are the bottleneck of L2 acquisition; acquisition of universal syntax, semantics and pragmatics flows smoothly (Slabakova 2006, 2008, 2013). The article surveys experimental studies supporting this view. A pedagogical implication of this model is discussed, namely, that an enhanced focus on practicing grammar in language classrooms is beneficial to learners.
The key is to be consistently good Martin states that it was never enough to be great some nights and mediocre on other nights. Anyone can be amazing sometimes, he suggests, but the key is to be consistently good.
"It was easy to be great. Every entertainer has a night when everything is clicking. These nights are accidental and statistical: Like lucky cards in poker, you can count on them occurring over time. What was hard was to be good, consistently good, night after night, no matter what the abominable circumstances."
The key to greatness is persistence There are numerous examples of Martin extolling the virtues of persistence over raw talent.
"But there was a problem. At age eighteen, I had absolutely no gifts. I could not sing or dance, and the only acting I did was really just shouting. Thankfully, perseverance is a great substitute for talent."
"Despite a lack of natural ability, I did have the one element necessary to all early creativity: naïveté, that fabulous quality that keeps you from knowing just how unsuited you are for what you are about to do."

Chris Milk uses cutting edge technology to produce astonishing films that delight and enchant. But for Milk, the human story is the driving force behind everything he does. In this short, charming talk, he shows some of his collaborations with musicians including Kanye West and Arcade Fire, and describes his latest, mind-bending experiments with virtual reality. (This talk was part of a session at TED2015 guest-curated by Pop-Up Magazine: popupmagazine.com or @popupmag on Twitter.)

Broken Age launched Act I in January 2014. Funded through Kickstarter with it’s development the subject of an epic (and ongoing) documentary courtesy of 2 Player Productions, the game was noteworthy for a number of reasons. I personally really enjoyed the games sound and music so in August 2014 I caught up with Camden Stoddard, the lead sound designer on the game for a chat. I was lucky enough to catch up with him again in March 2015 and also meet the other members of the audio team, Ashley Coull and Paul O’Rourke, as they closed in on the end of Act II
