A pill for learning Chinese?

I vaguely recall that the results of the study were that a tiny amount of alcohol relaxed the students and they did a bit better, but being out-and-out sloshed didn't work so well (big surprise!).

Dear Dick


Don't know anything about the pill, but there was a study carried out in the early 1970s by Guiora (I think) that highlighted the benefits of alcohol to SLA.


Reminds me of the Ogden Nash poem:
Candy is dandy
But liquor is quicker


All the best
