Fluent By Feeling: How Intuition Helps You Learn Languages

"I don't know how I knew this word, I just knew it."

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation where you speak without thinking?

In a moment like that, you trusted your gut. But how the heck does your GUT know another language?

In today's episode, Lindsay and I talk about the magic of using your language intuition. The episode is a fun discussion, and a bit of a search for answers. Join us to hear about

  • the powerful ways your brain helps you develop a sense of what's correct
  • what your gut feeling has to do with whether you feel fluent in another language
  • how you can use your environment and mood to boost this sense of intuition in order to become a better speaker
  • training your language intuition by adding lots of input
3 Books I've Read To Learn More About "Fast Thinking"
  1. Thinking, Fast and Slow - still reading this at the moment, and it's well worth my time. In the show I read a tiny bit from chapter 5 (cognitive ease).
  2. Becoming Fluent - I know I recommend this every 20 minutes, but there's a reason!
  3. Blink - Classic Malcolm Gladwell
