Learning a Foreign Language in 24 Hours

April 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

Everyone knows that one of the greatest challenges that you can give yourself is to learn a brand new language that you have never spoken before. One of the clear benefits of learning a foreign language is that you can communicate with people from other countries. It can also broaden your horizons in terms meeting new people whilst vastly improving your job prospects. Being bilingual or even multilingual can often look great on your job resume and can help to attract a much greater grade of employer than if you were restricted to only being able to speak using your native tongue.

So is it possible to learn a new foreign language, from scratch, in just 24 hours? The short answer is yes. This is because human beings learn by processing information whilst actual learning is not taking placing. So for every hour in the classroom or reading a text book, your brain will take several more hours assimilating the information and knowledge that has just been imparted. In a nutshell, learning does not merely take place in the classroom. Knowledge needs time to "sink in" in order for actual learning to take place. The basis of education is to learn the theory, then be shown an example and then to actual get involved.

So the premise which underpins the concept being learning a new foreign language in just 24 hours involved 24 separate 1 hour sessions of learning and then time in between these sessions for the information and knowledge to sink in. This is quite feasible and learning a different language to a reasonable degree can certainly take place in what would initially seem like such a short timescale. But upon further examination, the concept is sound and this is how many courses are actually run. The way in which the 24 hour learning books are positioned in the marketplace in terms of advertising might appear misleading initially (to some people at least). This is due to the fact that you're not actually waking up one day with no prior knowledge of a given foreign language and then being fluent in the language the very next day. But if you think about it then this isn't really the intention of the product and this is quite obvious when you consider it logically.

So good luck learning another language, it is challenging but ultimately worth it due to the increased prospects.
