The Idiom Zone

Dear friends, We have gone through a few idiom practices by now, and the list of the idioms covered is growing. I thought it helpful to put them all in the same thread for easy reference. :mrgreen: So please see below for the idioms from my last "Idiom Blast." I'd encourage those of you who have don...

Re: 5/23 (Sat) The Power of Habit / The Idiom Blast! (Host: Kat)

Hi John, it was such helpful and altogether insightful feedback! It amazes me just how much you've taken in from our "dialogue" exercise and brought about your own learning strategy. It's meta-learning at its most effective. (What I learned → how I learned it → why it worked and what didn't work → h...

Re: 5/23 (Sat) The Power of Habit / The Idiom Blast! (Host: Kat)

Hi Kooper, thanks, as always, for bring so much to the meeting. I like your one-month plan—better yet, why not pull together what the "habit science" has to offer and set up a new cue, routine and reward loop for your new idiom drill? Another fun way is to target those worn-out verbs you've been usi...

Thanks for joining us for the Habit Talk / Idiom Blast! I've promised a master list for all the idioms that had come up in the meeting, so here it is! :D This is also an open call for anyone to fill in the blanks if I missed any.

Re: 5/23 (Sat) The Power of Habit / The Idiom Blast! (Host: Kat)

Hi Michael, Sorry that we have to miss you, and thanks for the thoughts and questions. I think this book offers some very practical suggestions (based on the available science) for changing our habits. Here're a few notes that may be helpful. And absolutely, I'll put up all the idioms that we go thr...

5/23 (Sat) The Power of Habit / The Idiom Blast! (Host: Kat)

Dear friends, It'll be my pleasure to host again—and to be back to the meetings at all. It's been a long stretch, and how I miss my Yoyo gang! ("Gang" here is slang for "a group of friends.") As in the past, I'll try and mix things up a bit, explore various discussion formats, and even throw in a ga...

Re: 2/29(Sat) Rethinking Money / Shopping Psychology (Host:K

Hi Rock, great comments! I think this outbreak could end up disrupting our consumption-driven economy to such a degree that some people may start questioning just how sustainable the system is, if we have to go through the same thing every time there's a global health crisis—lockdowns, market crashe...

https://businessbias.weebly.com/uploads/2/6/1/6/26160068/9590335_orig.gif Dear friends, It often seems like we're constantly dealing with one crisis after another—on the personal front as well as in our civic engagement. But as we take action, just how much of our perception and understanding of th...

10/15 (Tue.) Climate Change + Creativity (Host: Kat & Lydia)

Dear friends, With the UN Climate Action Summit 2019 just concluded — and our task of saving the planet (and ourselves!) barely begun — I'd love to add to the conversation another look at the issue. And we'll even make it fun with games and various discussion formats. Plus, what brings about that i...

Re: Ask Kat: what's the equivalent of "旁門左道" in English?

Hi John, It’s a great question! There’re quite a few expressions that convey perceived hokiness of certain practices. “Hocus pocus” (“I think this stuff is just hocus pocus”) and “mumbo jumbo” (“Banks must abandon the marketing mumbo jumbo”) are used a lot. Some once-popular words are now often pejo...
