Conversations In English About Language Learners ✔ Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/conversations-in-english-11/
For most of us, thinking about how our brains work is pretty low on the day’s to-do list. We just let our brain get on with the thousands of jobs it does every day, and we ignore just how amazing our brains are. Well, in today’s conversation in English we are going to talk about some interesting science about how language learners’ brains actually work when learning a language.
Humans do a lot of things on autopilot. We unconsciously let our brains manage really important tasks, like breathing, sleeping, and we don’t really think much about it.
Take walking, for example, seems simple enough, right? But did you know you were using around 200 bones and over 600 muscles just to take a step, and before you take that step your brain is assessing a lot of sensory data from your eyes, your ears, nose and feedback from nerves in real-time as you take that single step. It’s amazing that we don’t even bother to think about this as we walk thousands of steps every day. Just walking and talking at the same time is a huge effort for your brain.
So it won’t surprise you that there is a lot of autopilot brain behavior going on when we learn a language. In today’s listen and learn English language conversation, we take a peek inside the human brains of people who speak and understand multiple languages, polyglots.
