What works when you really want to learn a language?

The advertising content over the Internet offers hundreds of thousands of ads telling you to ‘rewire’ your brain – for meditation, psychotherapy, even for love – I really doubt the existence of the last mentioned kind of circuitry. The web content tells how ‘rewiring’ your brain might change you and your life forever. The argument is that ‘objectively’ there are those ‘circuits’ in your head and you could not even try to manage them on your own. Could that work when you really want to learn a language?

    Hello Theresa, Yes it could increase your unrevealing ability. I myself practice meditation, some affirmations and visualisation after I set a goal to improve as much as a can my English. Aside from my activities like studing English grammar, listening, talking my friends gave me a positive feedback in so short period of time even I didnt study so hard. Its about the way we think, what motivate us and how committed we are.

    perhaps the kind of 'rewiring' necessary to learn a new language is the kind that establishes a mentality of persistence and determination. some people do not have the desire, time, concentration, or motivation to learn a new language. so maybe instead of 'rewiring', what one really needs to do is to 're-prioritize', shift their focus and dedicate their efforts to their goal.
