Words related to the Avian Bird Flu threat can be learned with our Accelerated Learning techniques

Avian Bird Flu H5N1 has been found in a dead turkey on a farm in France.

This foul finding has led to the demand of fowl dropping.

With a 30% drop in France, sales of poultry are now paltry.

The Japanese have stopped these fowl imports to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Meanwhile French President Jacques Chirac assures us that French drumsticks are still fine and dandy to eat. (DINDE which sounds like DAND is the word for goose in French, so tuck that one away for another day).

This was a different tack to the French response to British mad cow disease....

In the meantime let's use the avian bird flu to our advantage and have a look at some of the many related words that you will find in the various 200 Words a Day! courses, that are used in accelerated foreign language learning.

While we have no knowledge of how to protect yourselves from this avian menace, we do have quite a few fowl words that can speed up your vocab and language learning.

Check out these samples, and let's keep our fingers crossed that the scientists and quacks can conjure up some decent remedies...

Is Avian Bird flu bad for everyone?

Hey, it's not going to be bad for everyone. Once it crosses species barrier and strikes us humans, thousands of us will be flocking to our doctors in the hope of some immunisation.

I read recently that the combined profits of the top 10 drug companies in the USA, exceeded the entire combined profits of all the other 490 companies listed in the Fortune 500 list, so no doubt an avian bird flu remedy give them a further boost, and enable them to further part us from our hard-earned cash.

While the boffins toil over their bubbling beakers and formulae, let's take a peck at some of these bird flu related examples that can speed up your German, French, Spanish, Welsh vocabulary learning...

By the way whatever happened to SARS?

- The RETURN of the VULTURE.

This sounds like a Western movie... and indeed a Western theme is appropriate, particularly as the bird flu could provide good pickings for the vultures of the world, who like to feast on fresh carrion.

la vuelta

... means the return, and is a feminine word, hence a female character is being watched by our potential H5N1 transporter - a vulture...

Spanish for Return

la vuelta in Spain also means change, as in "Keep the Change!"

Quédese con la vuelta.

That is why the our feathered H5N1 transporter, the vulture refers to CASH. Get it?

Avian Bird Flu Tip for German Learners
- Lazy FOWL are a real threat

The German word for lazy and for rottenis ...

faul

And, of course remember in all these cases .... when you learn a base word or root word, such as faul, this gives you a tool to recognize other words, that use it as a base.

For example...

... the German verb faulen means to go rotten!

faulenzen is the German word for 'to laze about'.

die Faulheit is laziness.
