The second experiment to gain widespread attention in research circles was conducted by Dr. Tannis MacBeth Williams, professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia. Until the summer of 1973, television broadcasters had been unable to reach a certain Canadian town (which Williams dubbed “Notel”), but they expected to resolve these signal reception difficulties within a year. Williams’ team got word that Notel was about to receive television and quickly identified two other Canadian towns with demographic profiles identical to Notel but which already possessed television. Researchers then began a two-year study of randomly selected first- and second-grade students in all three towns, focusing on rates of objectively measured noxious physical aggression (., hitting, shoving, and biting).
You already mentioned reddit, but give a list of what you do like to do with your time and I bet that something on there could be considered an equally poor waste of time, or worse. Your post makes it appear like you're disgruntled that others enjoy what can't for some reason. Why do you have to be convinced that you're wrong as opposed to just dealing with the fact that you don't enjoy television like others do? No one cares if you don't like TV, but most people would think less of you if you told them that you thought less of them because of their interests.
The Americans have some tendencies to cut short their sentences and they also love to use acronyms and then make it sound like they are real words. These can be confusing to a learner and sometimes the confusion can lead them to say the wrong things at the wrong time. There are also some words that are not found in the dictionary that the learners use, slang words are fairly common and these can be heard used in their proper context on television – this includes movies, talk shows, and so on. For the learners, it is best solution that they understand that the English they are most likely learning is the American English and not British English.
