BBC 6 Minute English | IS AGGRESSION USEFUL? | English CC | Daily Listening

source: Daily Listening     2016年9月17日
Why do we get angry and is it a useful emotion?
Listen to Neil and Catherine talking about aggression and how they react when they get angry and how human behaviour compares with that of baboons. They also explain some related vocabulary.

0:06 I want to know, what sort of things make you feel angry?
0:11 Many things make me feel angry, Neil.
0:13 But one thing that makes me regularly angry is when people put the wrong rubbish in the
0:18 wrong bins.
0:19 Yes, that makes me angry too.
0:21 Does it?
0:22 It's not very thoughtful, is it?
0:23 Not really, no.
0:25 So, you may feel angry about people putting rubbish in the wrong bin but do you get aggressive?
0:31 That's behaving in an angry way, looking like you want to argue or even fight with someone?
0:37 No.
0:38 I don't really get aggressive about wheelie bins, to be honest.
0:41 Well I tend to control my anger too and keep calm but I have been known to react - especially
0:48 if someone is damaging some of my property.
0:50 Wow.
0:51 Really?
0:52 Yeah.
0:53 I can't stand it.
0:54 It comes out of the blue – it's completely unexpected.
0:56 But I'm glad to say I feel quite calm today.
0:59 I'm glad to hear it, Neil.
1:01 But today we are talking about aggression and we'll look at what we can learn about
1:05 human aggression by some examples from the animal kingdom.
1:09 That's right.
1:10 Now, are you ready to answer today's quiz question, Catherine?
1:13 In a very calm and non-aggressive way, I would like you to give me the question.
1:17 When attacked, what does a baboon typically do to show aggression?
1:23 Does it… a) beat its chest
1:25 b) yawn and show its teeth or c) laugh and roll on the ground
1:31 Well…
1:32 I'd love to think of an angry baboon laughing and rolling on the ground.
1:37 But I'm going to go for b) yawn and show its teeth.
1:41 OK.
1:42 Well, we'll see if you right or wrong a bit later on.
1:45 Now, Catherine, how do you usually act when you're angry or upset about something?
1:50 I generally let people know how I feel to be honest.
1:52 I don't go over the top and hit people, but also I don't sulk about things.
1:58 And sulk means when you refuse to smile or speak because you want to let people know
2:03 you are upset about something.
2:06 Sulking is quite childish, isn't it Catherine?
2:08 It is.
2:09 Are you a sulker, Neil?
2:10 I don't sulk, I don't think.
2:13 But as I said I don't often get angry.
2:14 I'm a very well balanced and grounded person, Catherine.
2:18 Really, very good.
2:19 I'm pleased to hear it, Neil.
2:21 Anyway, well balanced means sensible and in control of your emotions.
2:27 And grounded means mentally and emotionally stable.
2:31 Is that what you're saying, Neil?
2:32 Yes, that's me.
2:34 But let's listen to Professor Simon Underdown talking about human behaviour.
2:40 Can you spot a phrase that means 'the opposite side to an idea'?EINSERT
2:46 One of the things humans are incredibly good at doing is being psychologists.
2:49 We'e very good at reading situations that we find ourselves in […] We're extremely
2:53 good at picking up on signals.
2:55 What we can then do is trigger the appropriate response.
2:58 If it's an empathetic response we may well need to then be sympathetic, we maybe need
3:01 to show our sort of fluffy side if you want.
3:03 But on the flipside from an evolutionary point of view the reason we are so successful and
3:07 we're still here is because we can, and when we need to, react aggressively to situations.
3:12 Did you spot the phrase?
3:14 Flipside means the opposite side to an idea.
3:18 And being aggressive is the flipside of being fluffy and sympathetic.
3:22 Fluffy, by the way, is an adjective we often use to describe soft animal fur or feathers
3:30 on young animals or soft toys for children.
3:33 But here fluffy means behaviour that is soft and unthreatening so it’s the opposite of
3:40 aggressive.
3:41 And if you are empathetic you are able to share or understand another person's feelings.
3:46 That sounds like me!
3:47 I'm an excellent empathizer, aren't I, Catherine?
3:50 Neil, you are absolutely totally full of … empathy.
3:56 Nice pause.
3:57 Thank you.
3:58 Now, Simon also talks about humans being good at reading situations.
4:04 What does that mean, Catherine?
4:05 It means understanding what's going on.
4:08 For example, if a male gorilla is screaming and breaking branches, other gorillas will
4:13 probably see this as a show of aggression.
4:17 The male gorilla screams and breaks branches, signalling to the other gorillas that he's
4:22 angry or upset.
4:24 Signal here means a noise or a movement that gives someone information.
4:28 And the male gorilla's signal triggers a response from the other gorillas.
4:34 This means one thing causes another thing to happen.
4:37 And when a man suddenly punches another man in the face, what signal does that send?
4:43 Well, I think for me that would be a signal to leave!
4:46 Yes.
4:47 Quickly.
4:48 Yes, indeed.
4:49 And humans usually give signals just like the gorillas do, before they start a fight.
4:55 So people might shout, or gesture with their arms.
5:00 And a gesture is a movement made with arms or head to give someone else information.
5:06 Now then, Neil.
5:08 Let's have our quiz question answer please.
5:10 OK, OK, stop waving your arms around.
5:13 So I asked: When attacked, what does a baboon typically do to show aggression?
5:19 Does it…a) beat its chest?
5:21 b) yawn and show its teeth? or c) laugh and roll on the ground?
5:27 And I said b).
5:28 That’s right.
5:29 Well done!
5:30 Now let's hear today's words once again.
5:32 They are: out of the blue
5:34 aggressive sulk
5:37 well balanced grounded
5:40 flipside fluffy
5:43 empathetic reading situations
5:46 signal triggers a response
5:50 gesture Well, that's the end of today's 6 Minute English.

Talking About Voting - Elections Vocabulary

source: Twominute English     2013年8月10日
Elections are a very important event in a democratic country. They take place every few years, and since every vote counts, the decision that you make helps to hand over the country's welfare to a responsible party or person. Well, this entire system can be really confusing and you may need to discuss it with people you can trust. Let's learn some words and phrases that will help you discuss elections!
App for your Android Device :

0:18 Will you vote today?
0:20 Already did. I went in the morning. How about you?
0:25 I voted too. So, whom did you vote for?
0:28 I voted for the Republicans.
0:31 Me too. Do you think we did right?
0:34 Yes. I think they’re raising some valid issues.
0:37 Hopefully the next four years will be good years.
0:46 I don’t know why this voting system even exists!
0:50 What’s wrong with it?
0:52 What does it do for us?
0:54 You get the opportunity to put your favorite candidate in power.
0:59 But even if my candidate wins, he’ll forget all his promises.
1:03 That may be true. Some politicians don’t keep many of their promises.
1:09 Right. And this really upsets me.
1:13 Let’s just try and elect better representatives for this term.
1:23 Did you see the news bulletin?
1:25 Why? What happened?
1:27 Cynthia Haywards won the election!
1:30 No way! Really?!
1:33 Yup. And the surprising fact is that only 20 percent of the voters turned out.
1:38 Are you kidding? Voting is so important, but people don’t bother!
1:44 Many people think their vote doesn’t matter.
1:48 That’s a bad way of thinking. Gosh....we’re stuck with her for four more years.
1:55 I guess people just don’t care.
1:58 They’ll care when they see things go wrong.
2:07 Hey Brian! Did you see the debate last night?
2:10 No. What happened?
2:12 Wayne Callard really owned James Ratcher.
2:16 Really? Callard’s a great speaker, isn’t he?
2:20 Yes, and he put his points across very clearly. Ratcher sounded confused and muddled.
2:25 I hope Callard’s not only a good speaker but also a serious and committed politician.
2:32 I think he is, Brian.
2:36 Will you vote today?
2:41 I voted too.
2:44 Whom did you vote for?
2:48 Let’s just try and elect better representatives for this term.
2:59 Cynthia Haywards won the election!
3:06 Voting is so important, but people don’t bother!
3:14 Wayne Callard really owned James Ratcher.

English Vocabulary & Phrases for describing relationships

source: Learn English with Let's Talk    2013年9月1日
Relationships can be complicated. Here are some expressions for talking about all the different phases of a relationship with someone:

# Not in a relationship
1. single
If you're not married or dating anyone, you're "single".
A: Are you seeing anyone?
B: No, I'm single.

2. just friends
Imagine that you have a friend. Someone asks if you're dating this person. You're not, so you can say:
We're just friends.

3. a platonic relationship
A more specific and formal way to say that you are "just friends" is: Our relationship is strictly platonic.

# The beginnings of a relationship
4. into (someone)
When you've met someone and you both seem attracted to each other, you can say that you're "into" each other: I think he's into me. I'm kind of into him too.

5. (someone) asked (someone) out
Traditionally, one person asks the other person to go on a date. You can describe it this way: He asked me out.

6. hook up
But sometimes relationships start differently. If you kiss someone or have some kind of sexual experience before going out on a date, you can use this slang expression: We've hooked up.

7. seeing each other / 8. not serious
If you've been on a few dates or hooked up with someone a few times, you can describe it as "seeing each other". But you might still not be completely committed to each other: We're seeing each other. It's nothing serious, though.

# The relationship
9. dating
Once you're sure that you and the other person are seriously dating each other, you can announce it:
We're dating.

10. boyfriend / girlfriend
This person also gets a title: This is my boyfriend. / This is my girlfriend.

11. in a relationship
In a more formal situation, you might describe your situation this way: I'm in a relationship.

12. get engaged
After some period of dating, you decide to marry each other. First, there's an "engagement":
Scott and I just got engaged!
And, after the engagement starts: We're engaged.

13. newlyweds
Next comes marriage. For the first year or two after a couple gets married, you can call them "newlyweds": Back when we were newlyweds, he'd bring home flowers once a week.

14. happily married
After you're no longer newlyweds, you're just "a married couple". It's common for married people to call themselves "happily married": I'm happily married, with two kids, a boy and a girl.

15. partners
Some people in a serious relationship never get married. This might be because they don't think marriage is a good idea. Or it may be because they're gay and are not allowed to get married in the area where they live. In this case, you can call the person who you live with your "partner":
My partner and I took a trip to Italy last year.

# The end of a relationship
16. broke up
If you're dating someone, and the relationship ends, you can say that you "broke up":
A: Where's Jane?
B: Actually, we broke up.

17. through
If you break up with someone angrily, you can talk about it this way:
He and I are through!
I am through with him!

18. dump (someone)
Sometimes both people agree to break up. Other times, one person makes the decision and "dumps" the other person: I can't believe he dumped me!

19. separated
When a married couple ends their relationship, there are two parts. First is the "separation": My wife and I are separated.

20. divorced
Sometimes a couple gets back together after a separation. If not, they finalize their separation legally:
We're getting divorced.
And after the divorce has finished: He and I are divorced.

21. exes
After a couple has broken up or gotten divorced, a couple becomes "exes":
My ex took the house and the kids.
Hey, isn't that your ex-wife over there?
