If you're not TRYING to learn immersion doesn't help - but if you ARE it definitely helps.

He goes on to contradict himself in the first 3 points. You are way more likely to subconsciously take language in - if you are immersed. The example of the girl going to Brazil was immersed (why not have an example of her going back to Australia and being immersed).

On a Chinese train - he is immersed!

Sure his point is immersion != comprehension but he is confusing the message. Immersion helps comprehension a vast amount, all else being equal.

THE INITIAL SO. A presentation shouldn't begin with 'so'.

Apple called - they want their cheesy 2004 iPod ad music back...

To criticise free trade is to misunderstand it. Free trade everywhere. In the long term it is better. It is basic logic.

More imports for Korea means US individuals and businesses can get cheaper, higher quality products and services from Korea than they can from US companies. This in turn benefits those companies and makes them better globally - which leads to a fitter, better US economy.

Protectionism - DOESNT WORK - it is communist level thinking. Get a clue. It disadvantages everyone.

Also, with free trade wages and standards harmonise. We are seeing this in China already with huge pay increases and a shift of manufacturing back to the west. Free trade works - and to be against it harms the poor the most - globally.

Fat - is self inflicted - and therefore fair game aimed against women AND men. I think this because I am a feminist.

We do not need role models - high politicians and the wife of the president - normalising obesity. Being fat is a very bad thing - and should be ridiculed and criticised at every turn.

If we want me and women to be truly equal - they must be treated the same, not covered in cotton wool. Yes men should open doors for women - and women should open doors for men.

The premise is way funnier than the execution.

These people just aren't funny at all.

"Why did you get the guy who created the zune to make your website.". Hilarious - a master stroke by all involved.

Bill O'Reilly works for the Democrats in order to make Republicans look stupid. Everyone knows this - and here is proof. The whole thing is rigged, no one is this dumb / humourless.
